The United States Is A Nation Of Immigrants

by Felix Richter,

-- this post authored by Niall McCarthy

U.S. President Donald Trump is expected to clamp down on immigration by ending protection for young undocumented people brought to the U.S. as children, increasing deportations and of course, by building that infamous wall on the border with Mexico.

Trump pledged to abolish the 2012 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA) on his first day in office. It provides temporary protection and work permits to 750,000 young people who were brought to the U.S. illegally as children. Refugees fleeing war-ravaged countries in the Middle East can also bid farewell to any chance they had of reaching American shores. Last year, 12,587 Syrian refugees were admitted to the U.S. (out of a total of 84,995 arrivals) and this is more than likely to fall to zero under President Trump.

Will Trump's aggressive crackdown on immigrants erode some core American values? Throughout history, the U.S. has shown initiative and leadership in welcoming immigrants from all over the world and the following map shows just how multicultural it has become. According to the Pew Research Center, 46,630,000 people living in the U.S. in 2015 were born in other countries.

This chart shows the origin countries of immigrants living in the U.S. in 2015.
