How many immigrants come into the US every year?

According to the Department of Homeland Security, the United States accepted 1,062,040 legal permanent residents in fiscal year 2011, a number that has been fairly steady over the past few years. Of this number, roughly 45% were new arrivals and about 55% were people already in the U.S. whose status was upgraded to “permanent.” The Pew Hispanic Center released its 2012 report about Mexican immigration and concluded, “After four decades that brought 12 million current immigrants – most of whom came illegally – the net migration flow from Mexico to the United States has stopped and may have reversed.” The report was based on the center’s analysis of federal census data.[1]
