Immigration patterns in the U.S. will begin to see a shift within the next 50 years. A new immigration study shows the number of Asian immigrants will exceed those from Latin America by 2055, NBC News reported.
Asians will be the largest immigration population by 2065, according to a report on the immigration change by Pew Research Center. The report looks at changing trends and patterns of immigration within the U.S. since 1965.
Latinos are the largest minority group in the country right now, and make up 18 percent of the population.
The report comes 50 years after former President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the 1965 Immigration and Nationality Act, a landmark civil rights law that drastically diversified the origin of immigrants to the U.S.
