The Integration of Immigrants into American Society summarizes the findings of new research on how immigrants and their descendants adapt to American society in a range of areas such as education, occupations, health, and language. The report found that immigrants began to resemble native born Americans over time.
As they and their descendants mix into U. However, there can be declines in wellbeing in the areas of health, crime, and family patterns.
Read the interview with National Academies of Sciences author Marisa Gerstein Pineau and panel member Richard Alba about the findings revealed in the report: What effect does the current immigration system have on integration? I think what the report documents is really the power of the integration processes in American society.
The really big headline is that despite the difference in the sources—the national sources of immigration today as compared to years ago— immigrants and their descendants on the whole are integrating into American society at a pace that is consistent with our historical experience, and I think that holds for the people who are coming today.
In fact, the number of Asians coming is now higher than in the past, and we know that the Asian groups are integrating very rapidly into American society. Marisa Gerstein Pineau MP: The other potential barrier, and this more nebulous but we talk about it a in the report, is that you face different barriers based on where you live.
Integration happens in the specific localities where people settle, and especially with immigrants moving to new destinations, that can potentially create problems, particularly in places without a history of immigration.
Not always; there are communities that are new destinations that are very welcoming. What are the most significant ways that immigrant populations today are different from those who have arrived earlier?
There are two really important differences to keep in mind. The first is that the issue of legal status was a non-issue in the earlier great wave of immigration.
And, historically, we can see that there were smaller numbers of the undocumented probably thought of as illegal back thenbut they were treated in a very different way; much less harshly than today.
There was no such thing as a temporary status in the early 20th Century. That has a real impact on how people integrate, and even on how their U. The second really big difference is that the current wave of immigrants includes a very large number of people with high levels of educational and professional qualification.
This is true especially of the groups coming from Asia, such as the Indians or the Koreans. The other obvious difference is that the earlier waves were coming from Europe.
They were ethnically different, and in some ways at the time considered racially different, but, they were generally considered white, or became considered white fairly quickly. Now most of the immigration is from Latin America and Asia. The report finds that it actually is not a barrier. The place where race does seem to present the biggest problem is for black immigrants, who often come with quite high levels of education and skills, but whose children and grandchildren appear to be integrating into the black native-born population instead of the native-born population.🔥Citing and more!
