Immigrants in the United States
Listen: Bread's 2012 Hunger Report
Once in the United States, immigrants typically improve their economic situation, but unauthorized immigrants are effectively barred from career mobility, educational opportunities, and access to public support.
More than one in five (21 percent) of all unauthorized immigrants to the United States live in poverty, more than double the rate for U.S.-born adults.
Latinos – immigrants and native-born – have the highest food insecurity rates (27 percent) in the United States.
One-third of the children of unauthorized immigrants—most of whom are U.S. citizens—live in poverty.
