The Manhattan Institute's Center for Civic Innovation released a report by Jacob L. Vigdor about the state of economic, civic, and cultural assimilation of immigrants to the United States. The economic downturn has slowed both the growth of the immigrant population and the rate at which immigrants assimilate into the mainstream. Findings include an in-depth analysis of immigrants' English language ability and naturalization rates and how the reduced inflow and increased outflow of recent immigrants has affected these factors.
