gr-pm-immigration-462-1.gifLam Thuy Vo, from NPR’s Planet Money, took data from the Census Bureau to create the infographic to the right that illustrates where workers in the United States come from.

The figures include people who are in the U.S. temporarily as students or on special visas; naturalized citizens and other permanent residents; and people who are in the U.S. without legal permission.

There’s one more info graphic below but be sure to visit NPR’s “Planet Money” blog to see more from their Graphing America series. And then go follow Vo on Twiter.
