The United States benefits from acquiring a diverse workforce that leads to greater economic progress. Immigrants bring new skills, ideas, and technologies to the U.S. economy.

It is said that illegal immigrants are a major drain on the economy by taking money from the states and giving nothing in return because they do not pay any taxes. Of course, this is not even close to the truth.

In 2010, the Human Services Administration estimated that illegal immigrants actually contributed about $12 billion more to the U.S. economy than they took out, according to the Migration Policy Institute. This is a brilliant example of how even illegal immigrants contribute to the success of the country, although, of course, this does not justify the illegality of their actions.

A study conducted by the Organization of Economically Developed Countries addressed the question of whether higher levels of immigration lead to better economies. The researchers concluded that it not only stimulates economic growth, but also improves innovation and leads to a reduction in the dependency ratio.

Some of the world's largest companies have also begun to recognize the importance of diversity in recent years and have stepped up efforts to promote diversity that includes people of different nationalities. At the same time, about 44% of Fortune 500 companies were founded either by immigrants or their children.

To determine the countries with the highest levels of immigration to the United States as of 2022 over the past 10 years, the researchers took data from immigration statistics from the Migration Policy Institute.

25 Ireland
  • Total number of immigrants to the US: 118 539.

The Irish have contributed greatly to American culture over the past two centuries, and although their numbers have declined, they are still among the countries with the most immigrants to the United States.

24. Israel
  • Total number of immigrants to the US: 133 935.
  • Total legal permanent residents from 2013 to 2023: 111 261.

Israel could likely move up the list of countries with the highest immigration rates to the US, given the security situation in the country right now. Both countries maintain strong relations that facilitate immigration.

23. Lebanon
  • Total number of immigrants to the US: 144 024.
  • Total legal permanent residents from 2013 to 2023: 112 110.

The Lebanese diaspora in the United States may be small, but it is influential, especially in terms of cuisine. Immigration from Lebanon to the United States has been declining since the 1990s, amounting to about 5000 people per year.

22. Portugal
  • Total number of immigrants to the US: 163 523.

The Portuguese diaspora has a rich history in the United States, and the vast majority of Portuguese immigrants originate from the Azores.

21. France

  • Total number of immigrants to the US: 190 183.

Maine has the largest number of French Americans out of the total population, while California has the largest number of French Americans. However, the reason France is not higher on this list is due to historically low levels of immigration compared to other European countries in the 19th century.

18. Taiwan
  • Total number of immigrants to the US: 374 103.

Taiwan has received significant support from the US despite challenges from China, and given the relationship between the two countries, it is not surprising that Taiwan is among the countries with the most people moving to the US.

  • Total number of immigrants to the US: 397 735.

Iran has faced harsh US sanctions for several years now, but despite this the total number of Iranians is now approaching 400.

The largest population of Slavic Americans in the United States is from Poland. This began with their first wave of immigration in the 19th century.

15. Russia
  • Total number of immigrants to the US: 425 429.

Relations between Russia and the United States are currently at their lowest level since the end of the Cold War. However, the US has recently come under criticism for quietly resuming deportations of Russians trying to flee the war. Since Putin began mobilizing, about 22 Russians have attempted to enter the United States.

14. Germany
  • Total number of immigrants to the US: 540 203.

From 1840 to 1880, Germany topped the list of countries with the most immigrants to the United States, as millions of people moved to America. The strong relationship between the two countries after World War II ensured continued immigration to the benefit of both countries.

13 Brazil
  • Total number of immigrants to the US: 569 325.

Mostly middle- and low-income families from Brazil migrate to other countries. 2022 saw a significant increase in the number of Brazilians becoming permanent residents of the United States, unlike other years in the past decade.

12. United Kingdom
  • Total number of immigrants to the US: 701 102.

The UK and US have enjoyed a strong relationship for several decades, and a common language has made migration between the two countries even easier.

11. Canada
  • Total number of immigrants to the US: 778 497.

Even though Canada is a direct neighbor of the United States, it does not rank very high on our list of countries where people come to the United States from.

10. Jamaica
  • Total number of immigrants to the US: 796 290.

According to the Migration Policy Institute, Jamaica is the largest country of origin for black immigrants to the United States. Recently, increased restrictions by the United States have led to an increase in the number of deportations of Jamaicans.

9. Colombia
  • Total number of immigrants to the US: 854 921.

Colombia recently condemned the treatment of its immigrants in the United States using the term “cruel.”

8. South Korea
  • Total number of immigrants to the US: 1 011 589

South Korea maintains strong ties with the United States, which has led to increased immigration from Korea to the United States.

7. Cuba
  • Total number of immigrants to the US: 1 278 627

Surprisingly, Cuba is among the countries with the largest number of immigrants to the United States, despite being subject to significant U.S. sanctions for decades. In fact, it is the first Caribbean country with the largest number of immigrants to the United States.

Mass immigration of Vietnamese to the United States began only with the end of the Vietnam War in 1975.

South American countries, especially those experiencing economic crisis and high crime rates, are seeing an increase in migration to the United States.

4. Philippines
  • Total number of immigrants to the US: 1 982 434

It may seem strange that the Philippines is among the countries with the largest number of immigrants to the United States, but this history begins after the Spanish-American War of 1898. As a result of the war, the United States gained control of the Philippines. A significant number of immigrants worked in Hawaii on plantations before moving to the mainland, and consequently the tradition of immigration between the two countries grew.
