The report chronicles the increase of the foreign-born population over the last decade: from 19.8 million in 1990 to 31.1 million in 2000. All regions of the country experienced increases in the foreign-born population - by nearly 90 percent in the South, 65 percent in the Midwest, 50 percent in the West and nearly 40 percent in the Northeast.
Between 1990 and 2000, the foreign-born population grew by 200 percent or more in North Carolina, Georgia and Nevada. In 2000, more than half of the nation’s foreign-born population lived in three states: California, New York and Texas.
Foreign-born people constituted the majority in six cities with populations of 100,000 or more population in 2000 - two of them in Florida and four in California, according to this analysis of census results by the U.S. Census Bureau. More than 7-in-10 people in Hialeah, Florida and about 6-in-10 in Miami were foreign-born, according to the census figures. The foreign-born accounted for more than half the population in the California cities of Glendale, Santa Ana, Daly City and El Monte.
