U.S. Cities Benefit from Immigrants

Late in the 19th century, America had an influx of immigrants arrive. In 1850, there were 2.5 million immigrants, but in 1910, that number skyrocketed to 13.5 million.

Amazingly, the places in the country that welcomed these immigrants are still benefiting economically from their arrival, according to Quartz, a NYC-based news agency. Today, immigrants make up 13.5% of the United States population, the highest percentage in 106 years. USAFIS, an immigration service organization, says, “In addition to starting a new life in a wealthy country, they play a pivotal role in the nation’s economy.” To become a part of a welcoming country where your dreams can come true, contact USAFIS to start the immigration process.


American President Donald Trump recently welcomed over 4,000 newcomers in the state of California. Since they are now a part of the ‘American family,’ he asked them to aid other immigrants in assimilating to the United States. This message is reiterated at most naturalization ceremonies. Even though the political and economic circumstances are very different from those in the 19th century, there are several similarities that would support the idea that the benefits of immigration still hold true today and beyond the 21st century. USAFIS not only helps prepare and submit applications to the Green Card Lottery Program, they direct winners through the process until arriving in the United States.
