Immigration has again been in the news this week as the pandemic-era U.S. immigration policy Title 42 expires. The Migration Policy Institute has published an informative article discussing Central American immigrants in the U.S., including their provenance, immigration status, labor force participation, educational background, and more. Check it out.
"Central American Immigrants in the United States" - Migration Policy Institute
"The Central American-born population in the United States has grown more than tenfold since 1980 and by 25 percent since 2010."
"Central American immigrants generally have lower educational outcomes than the overall immigrant population or the U.S. born, and two-thirds report having limited English proficiency. However, they have higher rates of labor force participation than either the overall foreign- or U.S.-born populations."
