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]
