Hispanic Nativity Shift U.S. births drive population growth as immigration stalls

A report from Pew Research by Jens Manuel Krogstad and Mark Hugo Lopez concludes that after four decades of rapid growth, the number of Latino immigrants in the U.S. reached a record 18.8 million in 2010, but has since stalled.   Since 2000, the U.S.-born Latino population continued to grow at a faster rate than the immigrant population. As a result, the foreign-born share of Latinos is now in decline.
