Sacramento Diasporas Project

January 01, 2011

In 2005, one-fifth of the U.S. foreign born population, or more than 7 million individuals, lived in sprawling metropolitan areas that can be described as America’s “twenty-first century gateways.” The increasing diversity of metropolitan regions raises a number of issues concerning (im)migration and the relations between different Diaspora communities when these groups have their own cultural traditions and beliefs.
