Unparalleled immigration in the 1980s and 1990s transformed many older immigrant gateways and created new ones. In this paper, Audrey Singer analyzes the new geography of American immigration and highlights how recent settlement patterns differ from earlier ones. To do that, the analysis uses historical U.S. Census data to develop a classification of urban immigrant “gateway” types. The new release from the Living Series Census Series also examines contemporary immigrant settlement trends in metropolitan areas, and outlines a six-point policy framework for local leaders as they seek to ease immigrants’ incorporation into their communities.
