There’s one state that a large number of immigrants like to call home: Arizona.

Arizona was among the states with the largest increase in immigrants — both legal and illegal — between 2010 and 2016, according to the non-profit organization Center for Immigration Studies.

The number of immigrants increased by more than 78,000 over that six-year period, jumping from 856,663 in 2010 to 934,883 in 2016.

This put Arizona among the top 15 states in the nation for immigrant growth, joining the likes of states that included Texas, Florida, California, New York and New Jersey.
