22% of US Population Does Not Speak English at Home

Paul Bedard, Washington Examiner, July 24, 2018


A report from the Migration Policy Institute found that 22 percent of the U.S. population does not speak English at home.

The share was highest in Nevada at 31 percent and Florida at 29 percent.

The report revealed a new trend in migration to the U.S where immigrants are dispersed throughout the nation instead of clustering in a few states and cities.

For example, while the number of immigrants in the last eight years increased 9 percent, the foreign born population surged 15 percent or more in 15 states. The report said those states are: North Dakota, West Virginia, South Dakota, Delaware, Nebraska, Minnesota, Wyoming, Pennsylvania, Alaska, Indiana, Florida, Nevada, Washington, Iowa, and Maryland.
