Urging our nation's leaders to end hunger

Immigrants in the United States

Once in the United States, immigrants typically improve their economic situation, but unauthorized immigrants have limited career mobility, educational opportunities, and access to public support.

Almost one in three (32 percent) of all unauthorized immigrants to the United States live in poverty, and 51 percent of unauthorized immigrant children had family incomes below the federal poverty line.

Latinos – immigrants and native-born – also have the highest food insecurity rates (27 percent) in the United States.
