The annual influx o[ immi- grants is still less than lialf the figure of peak years 70 or 00 years ago, when the U.S. was literally flooded with inr- migrants, but Us impact is said lo bn every bit as great. From a tow of a half-million in the Depression decade of 1931-40, total immigration lo the U.S. doubled to a million in 1341-50 and more than dou- bled again to 2.5 million in 1951-60. In decade just ended, it climbed still further lo 3.3 million. As birln rales among native Americans have dropped off, Iho new immigrants have con- tributed a growing proportion per cent in the most re- cent U.S. population growth. PATTERN CHANGES And non-white immigrants, once a negligible factor, ac- counted for nearly 14 per cent of the newcomers in Ihe last decade. The percentage is ex- pected to climb steadily. The shiTling pattern of im- migration has begun to at- tract public attention. Social scientists and govern- ment officials are confronted with new guese ill small-town New Eng- land, Greeks in the mid-west, Filipinos in Los miniscent of the old concen- trations of Irish in Boston, Germans ir. Pennsylvania and Mexicans in the southwest. Like Lheir predecessors of decades past, the latest waves of immigrants tend to join families, friends and fellow villagers in ethnic concentra- tions which bring the comfort of familiar language and cus- toms, but also present special problems of employment, edu- catfon and social adaptation for the authorities. Even Canadians follow the pattern to some extent. Apart from metropolises which prove an unsurprising lure, the city of Hartford, in population among U.S. consist- ently one of the favorite des- tinations for Canadians, largely because it has grad- ually built up its own Cana- dian community, attracting relatives and friends of those already established there. Along with I h e drop in over-all Canadian migration have come changes hi the des- tination of Canadian newcom- ers. California remains the top state, but its margin over the others has dropped sharply. In fiscal 10G5 it attracted Canadians, more than a quarter of Ihe total, while in fiscal 1970 the figure had fallen to or 12 per cent. New York, Michigan and Massachusetts remained in the top five for both years, with Florida and Connecticut also in contention. Among Canadians citing a specific city as their future home, New York was consist- ently No. 1. But Los Angeles dropped from second place In fiscal to fifth in fiscal 1970, while Detroit and Chi- cago climbed in Ihe "rat- ings." Since the new immigration patterns began to make them- selves obvious, various efforts have been made by individual congressmen to change the laws again and re-establish the old domination of Canadi- ans and northern Europeans. But, having taken decades to alter laws which effectively excluded Asians and Africans from America, Congress has so far resisted the temptation to turn back Lira clock.
