Venezuelans: America's fastest-growing diaspora

Immigration status

This is the number of Venezuelans who have been granted LPR status since 2006. After 3 years if they obtained it through marriage with a US citizen or after 5 years through employment, asylum or other status they can apply for citizenship. Most of those who obtained it before 2014, likely already became US citizens. In 2019, more Venezuelans than ever obtained LPR status and this figure is likely to keep growing as those who have arrived become eligible for permanent residency.
