New Report: “Assimilation Today”

| 0 comments

A new report has just been issued by the Center For American Progress. It’s called “Assimilation Today”

Here’s how Citizenship News describes it:

The Center for American Progress has put out a report on immigrant trends related to several accepted benchmarks of assimilation: attainment of citizenship, home ownership, English language proficiency, job status, and income.

Here are some highlights:

Immigrants, whether from higher or lower starting points of social and economic attainment, have been integrating at high rates since 1990.

Naturalization has increased …at a fast rate, from below 10 percent in 1990 to 56 percent by 2008, a substantial achievement given the constraints of federal citizenship law…

I’m adding it as a teacher resource to The Best Sites For Learning About Immigration In The United States.
