zzAsians have surpassed Latinos as the fastest-growing group of US immigrants, according to a Pew Center study, BBC reported. Asians made up more than 36% of all US newcomers in 2010, compared to the 31% with Hispanic origins in that same year.

  The study found Asian immigrants to be the most educated group of immigrants in US history. Analysts say the trend reflects a slowdown in illegal immigration as employers are boosting their demands for high-skilled workers.

  "For an economy that requires higher skills, Asian-Americans are very well positioned," said Elaine Chao, a former US Secretary of Labor.

  More than 6 in 10 adults who have recently arrived from Asia, hold at least a bachelor's degree, twice the rate of recent non-Asian immigrants.

  据英国广播公司报道,美国皮尤研究中心调查显示,亚裔已成为美国人口增长最为迅速的族群,其新移民规模已超过拉美裔移民。2010年,亚裔在新移民中所占比例达36%;与此同时,拉美裔所占比例则为31%。

  研究发现,在美国历史上,亚洲移民是移民群体中受教育程度最高的。分析学家称,这一趋势反映出,非法移民人数正在减少,因为雇主对高科技人才的需求更大。

  美国前劳工部长赵小兰表示:“美国经济需要高科技人才,而亚裔已经完全占据了这一位置。”

  超过60%的美国亚裔新移民至少拥有学士学位,人数比例是其他移民群体的两倍。
