“One out of every five residents in the Inland Empire – nearly 1 million people – is an immigrant, and that population is growing.
“Yet the region of Riverside and San Bernardino counties isn’t necessarily associated with immigration. Instead, it’s sometimes connected to white flight, or older communities where people flock for lower-priced housing.
“A report released this week by UC Riverside’s newly created Center for Social Innovation is looking to change that. The 20-page report – billed as a first-ever detailed look at immigrants in the Inland Empire – offers demographic information that reveals a complex, growing world of immigrant communities in the two counties and contrasts those groups with similar immigrant populations throughout Southern California.”
