Fourteen percent of people in the US are foreign born, up from a low of 5% in 1970 and near the high of 15% in the early 1900s.
The number of refugees and asylees admitted fell 24%, while the number of green cards and non-tourist visas granted fell 3% and 1%, respectively.
The total foreign-born population was 43 million.
In fiscal year 2019, 860,000 people were apprehended at the border — nearly 460,000 more than in 2018, but 800,000 fewer than the recent peak in 2000.
This is less than the 2013 peak of 433,000 but higher than any year before 2007.
