DNY PROJECT Immigration Throughout its history New York City has been a principal entry point for immigration to the United States . The city experienced major immigration from Europe in the 19th century and another major wave in the early 20th century. Since the passage of the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965, and particularly since the 1980s, New York City has seen renewed rates of high immigration. Newer immigrants are from Latin America, the Caribbean, Asia, Eastern Europe and Africa. 36% of the city's population is foreign-born. [2] Among American cities, this proportion is higher only in Los Angeles and Miami. [6] While the immigrant communities in those cities are dominated by a few nationalities, in New York no single country or region of origin dominates. The ten largest countries of origin are the Dominican Republic , China , Jamaica , Guyana , Mexico , Ecuador , Haiti , Trinidad and Tobago , Colombia and Russia . [25] About 170 languages are spoken in the city. [1] Between 1990 and 2000 the city admitted 1,224,524 immigrants. [26] http://www.gothamgazette.com/article/demographics/20080212/5/2431

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
