Talking about immigrants, Asians are the people who always wanted to go to the United States for personal means. In recent years, the Group of Asians reached 18.2 million that made Asians the fastest-growing racial group in the United States based on Pew Research Center.

"Asian Americans are the highest-income, best-educated and fastest-growing racial group in the United States," the study concluded.

At least 11 percent of illegal immigrants in the United States are Asian while about 75 percent are Hispanic, according to the research, which combined government data with its own polling.

“Asians have become the largest stream of new immigrants to the U.S. — and, thus, the latest leading actors in this great American drama” of immigration, Paul Taylor, executive vice president of the Pew Research Center, wrote in the report.

Hispanics immigrants decreased due to economic crisis in the United States, increased deportation and border enforcement by the American authorities, and declining birthrates in Mexico.

Last week, President Obama announced he was halting deportations for young illegal immigrants. "Dreamers" now have the chance to continue their dreams without any doubts.

Most of the Asians came from China, Philippines, India, Vietnam, South Korea and Japan.
