Latin America/Asia Pacific


Most legal immigrants in the United States come from Latin American/Asia Pacific. There had been a boost in immigration (both legal and illegal) from Latin America as well as Asia Pacific. In the 1990's (when there were multiple civil wars in Latin America) immigration from that area went up to about 44%. One of those immigrant from El Salvador was my Spanish teacher. However, immigrants from Asia have been climbing recently.
