The number of legal immigrants is decided by how many immigration visas Congress decides to allow. Half of this legal immigrants become legal permanent residents in every year. Out of this half about 15% are Mexicans, and after Mexican, Indian and Chinese persons make the majority.

Newly approved permanent residents are mostly children and young people up to 25 years. 8 percent of legal permanent residents are newborns who are connected by birth to an USA citizen. Young people make about 40 percent of the new LPR (legal permanent residents).
