The newest immigration wave comes from Asian, Muslim and Central and South American nations — and tops the influx from longstanding leader Mexico, an analysis of Census data shows.

The Center for Immigration breakdown of 2014-15 Census statistics reveal growth in both legal and illegal immigration from Cuba, Vietnam and China — and an explosive influx from South Asian countries such as Pakistan, India and Afghanistan that has more than doubled in five years, from 271,000 to 550,000.

According to the pro-immigration control group, record highs were recorded by immigration from East Asia, which hit 583,000, and the Caribbean, which reached 307,000.

Also, Latin American nations other than Mexico nearly doubled since 2013, jumping from 458,000 in the 2012-13 period to 878,000 in the following two years, according to the Center.

The number of immigrants from Mexico increased slightly to 338,000 in 2014-15 — about one-third of the total from 10 years ago, the Center reports.

"Mexican immigration has rebounded significantly from the lows of 2010 and 2011, but it is still nowhere near the level it was a decade earlier," the Center's research director Steven Camarota writes in the report.

In all, 3.1 million new legal and illegal immigrants settled in the United States in 2014 and 2015 — a 39 percent increase over the prior two years, the Center reports. Of the total, 1.1 million, or 550,000 annually, were illegal immigrants, up from the 700,000 illegal immigrants, or 350,000 annually, entering in 2012 and 2013.

The Center reports the Census data indicates the number of new legal immigrants, both temporary and permanent, has gone up about 30 percent, from 1.6 million in 2012-2013 to 2 million in 2014-2015.
