SAN FRANCISCO — Two new studies on U.S. immigrants could help to refute some of the key arguments used by legislators to crack down on immigrants.
A report by the Center for American Progress (CAP) finds that immigrants today are integrating into American society at the same rates as previous generations of immigrants. The study, the first to look at the future of immigrant integration, examines trends in homeownership, education, English proficiency, naturalization and income among immigrants who arrived in the 1990s.
