Study Shows Record Number of Green Card Holders in U.S.

Posted on April 1st, 2011 No Comments

A study conducted by the Department of Homeland Security found that over one million people from foreign countries were granted permanent residency in the U.S. through a green card.

The study also found that almost two-thirds of the people who obtained residency did so through family members who are citizens of the U.S. An Immigration Act was passed in 1990 that limited the number of people who could gain residence through a green card to less than 675,000, however, many of the people who obtained green card in 2010 were already living in the U.S.

13 percent of the people who gained residency in the U.S. were from Mexico, while 7 percent gained residency from China and India each.
