Study: After Ebb, Immigration Begins To Flow Again In U.S.

Immigration to the United States is on the rise, according to a new study released by the Brookings Institution. Immigration to the country fell to its lowest level in decades during the recession. Immigration stopped almost entirely in 2008 when the recession had hit its full swing.

In 2009, roughly half a million immigrants entered the United States according to the study released today. Earlier this decade more than a million immigrants entered the country each year, peaking at 1.8 million immigrants in 2006.

The study is based upon data from the U.S. Census bureau.

In the 1990s the foreign-born population increased by 11.3 million people. In the 1970s 4.5 million immigrants entered the country. In the past decade, 7.4 million people came to the United States.

The report says "after three decades of nonstop growth, immigration seems to have paused. The biggest losses of new immigration occurred in cities that recently boomed, especially in the housing industry-cities like Tampa, Florida, according to the report. Smaller cities and cities not hit hard during the recession had less of an effect continued to gain immigrant population according to the report.

Audrey Singer, co-author of the study, says "immigrants are very mobile in responding to economic changes." Singer says the rise in immigration last year points to an increase in demand for immigrant labor.

Florida employment immigration attorneys know that there are many different types of business and employment immigration visas and regulations regarding business compliance with immigration law.
