According to a study Asians have passed Latinos as the fastest growing group of US immigrants.

Asians made up more than 36% of all US newcomers in 2010, compared to 31% with Hispanic origins in the 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 boost their demand for high-skilled workers.
