Fact Box: Immigration from Mexico
Almost one million legal immigrants come to the United States every year. The southern parts of the USA in particular receive many immigrants, mainly from Mexico. Hispanics (Spanish-speaking people from Latin America) are now the largest minority group in the USA, and the Spanish language is becoming more and more important. In the year 2050 only 50 percent of Americans will be white and about 25 percent Hispanic.
