This fact sheet looks at the prevalence of hunger and poverty in the United States among immigrants, especially immigrants without documentation. This is one of the groups that Bread for the World recognizes as being especially vulnerable to hunger and poverty.

It provides statistics and examines the factors that contribute to hunger and poverty in this community, namely the challenges immigrants face in:

  • Accessing sufficient nutritious food
  • Obtaining work authorizations and/or decent-paying jobs
  • Obtaining legal protections and avoiding immigration raids and deportation
