Southern California Immigration

Immigration is one of the factors seen by Harvard University's Joint Center for Housing Studies and others as one of the three factors of the rising cost of real estate both nationally and locally, the others being global financing and restricted growth policies. A study released by the Public Policy Institute of California found that 26 percent of California’s population in 2000 is foreign-born, as compared to 22 percent in 1990. According to the U.S. Census, 2.8 million new immigrants arrived in California between 1990 and 2000. 46.2 percent of new immigrants were born in Mexico, compared with 38.2 percent in 1990. A full copy of the report can be obtained here from the Pacific Council's site.
