zzAsians have surpassed Latinos as the fastest-growing group of US immigrants, according to a Pew Center study, BBC reported. Asians made up more than 36% of all US newcomers in 2010, compared to the 31% with Hispanic origins in that same year.

  The study found Asian immigrants to be the most educated group of immigrants in US history. Analysts say the trend reflects a slowdown in illegal immigration as employers are boosting their demands for high-skilled workers.

  "For an economy that requires higher skills, Asian-Americans are very well positioned," said Elaine Chao, a former US Secretary of Labor.

  More than 6 in 10 adults who have recently arrived from Asia, hold at least a bachelor's degree, twice the rate of recent non-Asian immigrants.
