In 2011, 17.5 million children lived in immigrant families, a 26% increase from the last decade. Of these children, 88% are U.S. citizens. Among all children living in immigrant families, 26% have parents without a high school degree and 23% live in linguistically isolated households, both predictors of poor outcomes. California 48%, Nevada 38% and New Jersey 35% have the largest share of children in immigrant families, while West Virginia 3%, Montana 4% and Mississippi 4% have the lowest.
