More so than ever, a nation of immigrants

According to the New York Times, the United States is becoming truly cosmopolitan: In 2020, 1 in 7 People in U.S. May Be Foreign-Born:

[T]he Pew Center projects that in 2050, 19 percent of Americans will be foreign-born; that the share of Hispanic residents will more than double to 29 percent from 14 percent in 2005; and that the proportion of Asians will almost double, from 5 percent to 9 percent.
