More and More Asians are Moving into the U.S.

In a Business Insider report this month, researchers found that even though Hispanics still top the list of the most number of immigrants in the country, immigration in the U.S. would experience a shift in the years to come. According to them, more and more Asians are flocking into the country, and could overtake the number of Hispanics by 2055. In fact, the study concluded that in 2065, Asians would constitute 38% of immigrant population, which is higher than the Hispanics’ 31%.

Currently, the six largest Asian groups that comprise the immigrant population are Chinese, Filipino, Indian, Vietnamese, Korean, and Japanese. But why do many Asians look to live in the U.S.? Here are some of the many reasons:

Investments

Advanced Asian economies are continuously expanding their horizons to other countries, including the U.S. In fact, the demand for visa for investors and business owners in the U.S. has been stably increasing. Furthermore, certain visa options in the country offer advantages that are attractive for Asian investors. For instance, the website of the Russian-speaking EB-5 lawyers at AmLaw Group stated that foreign investors who choose to pursue the EB-5 visa through the country’s Immigrant Investor Program are not required to have educational and professional attainment. They are also not required to have a direct family member in the U.S., nor do they need to meet certain residency and workplace requirements.

Job opportunities

Many are also attempting to stay in the U.S. for good because of good employment opportunities. This is especially true among Asians with a college or post-graduate degree. To date, millions of Asians are employed in different sectors, such as healthcare, building and construction, and service industry.

Education

America is home to many of the bests, and that include universities. In fact, four of the five top-ranking universities can be found in the country (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Harvard University, Stanford University and California Institute of Technology). University rankings were based on different metrics, including the number of international students and foreign academic faculty staff.
