REPORT: Immigration To US Hit All-Time High In 2016

Total immigration to the U.S. hit an all-time record in 2016 with 1.75 million new arrivals, according to a report released Wednesday.
The report comes from the Center for Immigration Studies, which analyzed the most recently available data from the Census Bureau’s American Community Survey. It shows the number of new immigrants — legal and illegal — tied the previous record set in 1999, just before the dot-com bust.
The historic high is a continuation of a post-Great Recession surge in immigration, according to the report’s authors, CIS research director Steven Camarota and demographer Karen Zeigler. Immigration has risen sharply since 2011, when there were about 1 million new arrivals.
