Immigrant population has formed over many hundreds of years. Newcomers have arrived in large waves when jobs were plentiful and resources were unlimited; and immigration slowed during times of economic recession. Early immigrants were predominantly White Europeans that farmed the land and tried hard to find enough food to eat and a warm place to live. The Industrial Revolution brought new types of jobs which required communication and skills. Today there are 38.5 million immigrants living in the United Statesthe majority of which are Latino. The job market has become very competitive for these new immigrants, so competitive in fact, that American residents are pressuring politicians to pass anti-immigration legislation thus making the immigration integration process very difficult. This article investigates the immigration movement in the United Statesand events that have molded the United States in which we live today.
