Census Bureau: Net Mexican Immigration Has Halted

NEWSLANC:  Immigration to the United States is down sharply from the levels of 1982 to 2007, and equaled just 0.6 percent of the 2010 population in the last two years, according to new data from the Census Bureau.

Immigration topped 1 percent of the 2010 population only in New Jersey, New York, and Florida, and was only slightly above the national average in California. In Arizona, with its enforcement of anti-illegal immigrant laws, immigration was actually down.

The Bureau reports that net Mexican immigration has halted, and California is likely getting more Asian immigrants than Hispanics.
