Vietnamese Immigrants in the United States

Via Lê Bá Dzũng

Large-scale immigration from Vietnam to the United States began at the end of the Vietnam War, when the fall of Saigon in 1975 led to the U.S.-sponsored evacuation of an estimated 125,000 Vietnamese refugees. As the humanitarian crisis and displacement of people in the Indochina region (Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos) intensified, more refugees and their families were admitted to the United States. The Vietnamese immigrant population has grown significantly since then, roughly doubling every decade between 1980 and 2000, and then increasing 26 percent in the 2000s. In 2017, more than 1.3 million Vietnamese resided in the United States, accounting for 3 percent of the nation’s 44.5 million immigrants and representing the sixth-largest foreign-born group in the country.



  1. next door neighbors are from vietnam. nice people. their daughter is an er nurse. the son is a colo state trooper who's thing is busting meth traffickers. their dad works for the rail road and loves to go uphill and gamble. the house is kept better than mine so i should clean up my act.
    the family moved to CO from CA because I was told that they think CA is as bad politically as vietnam. always interesting in the hood.

  2. of course the feds want to limit new viet nam immigration.
    these immigrants reliably vote republican.
    if the hordes from latin america voted republican, the wall would be built.....tomorrow....with a mote.....and alligators.....anf pirana ....and land mines.
