The Annie E. Casey Foundation has new data on children in immigrant families.
You'll want to look at the data sets and see what they tell you about your community. From their newsletter:
Children in immigrant families now represent 22 percent of all U.S. children and youth under 18 and 26 percent of all children living in poverty. Learn more about immigrant children and families in the KIDS COUNT Data Center, which offers the latest national, state, and city-level data on more than 100 measures of child well-being, including:
- Total number of children living in immigrant families in the United States
- Children in immigrant families living below the poverty threshold
- Immigrant children living in low-income working families
- Children in immigrant families in which a parent has difficulty speaking English
