Religion and the New Immigrants

Recent immigrants to the United States differ from the last great wave of immigrants in their countries of origin and socio-economic diversity. Immigration to the Washington, D.C. area differs from national patterns in relative geographic dispersal, the wide range of immigrant groups, and the presence of large proportions of immigrants from El Salvador, Africa, Asia, and the Muslim world. This chapter profiles the new immigration nationally and in the Washington, D.C. area, and offers a brief profile of each of the immigrant religious traditions analyzed here: West African Protestants and Catholics; Chinese Protestants and Catholics from Taiwan, the mainland, and the larger Chinese diaspora; Hindus and Sikhs from India; Korean Protestants and Catholics; Muslims; and Salvadoran Protestants and Catholics.

Keywords:   immigration, religious traditions, Africans, Chinese, Hindus, Koreans, Muslims, Salvadorans, Sikhs
