Who are New England Immigrants

Mamie Marcus and Ricardo Borgos, “Who are New England Immigrants,” Federal Reserve Bank of Boston, Fall 2004. From the report: “Given the relative size of the region’s immigrant population, it is an understandable omission—less than 5 percent of the 31 million foreign-born persons in the United States live in the six New England states. But for New Englanders, these 1.4 million immigrants make up nearly 10 percent of the population, and they significantly shape the region’s economy, culture, and character.”
