News Americas, NEW YORK, NY, Fri. July 22, 2016: Given the vitriolic verbal assault on immigrants and immigration by many speakers at the Republican National Convention this week and the echoing of calls by their Presidential nominee Donald Trump to “build a wall” on the U.S’ southern border, NAN decided to research the number of immigrants from the Americas – the Caribbean and Latin America – who now call the US home.

With 46,630,000 people living in the United States who were born in other countries, according to the Pew Center, here are the top 10 – from most to least – from the Americas:   Continue reading
