According to the Pew Research Center, Asian immigrants women raised the birthrate in the United States. It seems that Asian women are responsible for 20 percent of U.S. births by foreign women. While the Asians are helping the population of the United States to grow, fewer Latin American immigrants have babies.
It is interesting to discover that the number of American women who have birth dropped, while immigrant women are raising the birthrate. The number of women from other countries who gave birth in the United States tripled. This proves how much America needs immigrants and what would happen if they are gone.
If the United States want to have a big population, they should invest more in immigrants. They need more jobs, a normal income and the same chances as every American has. A low birthrate is one of the biggest issues a country has. Not only that there will be a deficit in the labor force, but the economy will have a lot to suffer.
There are more than 18 million Asians immigrants in the United States. Most of them are living in Los Angeles, New York, and San Francisco. An interesting thing about Asians who live in America is that they have the highest educational results of any racial group in the country. Almost 50 percent of them have a bachelor’s degree. Moreover, they have the best results in tests such as SAT. Asians have also a higher income that most people in the United States.
Chinese is the third most popular language in the United States, after English and Spanish. We are expecting it to become more popular as there are more Asian immigrant mothers. You could wonder why they moved from Asian countries. First of all, those countries are overpopulated, especially China. Their parents can’t have more than one child. Moreover, there are also people who look for a better life and they believe they will achieve their goal in the United States.
Immigrant women are responsible for the increase in annual births. This is just one of the reasons why immigrants are important for the United States. Without them, the country will have major issues regarding the economy.
