An update from the Immigration Policy Center on immigrant populations per states that the foreign-born share of Georgia’s population rose from 2.7% in 1990, to 7.1% in 2000, to 9.7% in 2010, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. Georgia had almost 1 Million immigrants in 2010, 35% of them were U.S. citizens by naturalization. More than 1 in 10 Georgians are Latino or Asian.
The Latino share of Georgia’s population grew from 1.7% in 1990, to 5.3% in 2000, to 8.8% (or just over 850,000 people) in 2010. The Asian share of the population grew from 1.1% in 1990, to 2.1% in 2000, to 3.3% (or just over 300,000 people) in 2010, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.
No wonder us immigration attorneys are so busy here in Georgia!
I do hope all the naturalized citizens will go to vote. It can really make a difference in the 2012 elections!
