- Although Korean-American immigration history covers nearly one hundred years, the Korean-American community before 1965 was almost negligible in terms of population size. It was the 1965 Immigration and Naturalization Act that has contributed to an influx of Korean immigrants to the United States. This paper overviews the post-1965 immigration, immigration motives and characteristics of the new immigrants, and their settlement patterns.
