Thousands of migrants born in other countries continue streaming into Texas, but lately more of them have lived somewhere else in the country first, according to a new analysis.
The fluctuations in migration come as the share of people from Latin America coming to Texas is falling and Asian migration to the Lone Star State has increased dramatically. The changing patterns captured in a report by the Office of the State Demographer, which provides periodic snapshots of the state’s growth are lending the state a more international flair, especially its metropolitan areas. Texas’ population is more international today than at any time since it became a state in 1845, according to the demographer’s report.
In 2013, almost 39 percent of the foreign-born people who moved to Texas had lived somewhere else in the United States first, mostly California and Florida, the study shows. A decade ago about 34 percent came here from other states. Meanwhile, the share of immigrants moving straight to Texas from another country dropped from 66.3 percent of newcomers in 2005 to 61.5 percent in 2013.
