In 1961, the Vietnam War caused refugees from Indo China flooded Thailand. The increase of refugees led the Thais to realize that immigration to the United States was possible and went there because of the education and economic standards. In the end, there were 64,000 Thai immigrants in the U.S. by the 1970s governmental census, and by the 2000s census there were a bit more than 150,000 Thais in the United States.
The second wave of Thai immigrants was caused by the American’s military funding that was poured into bases, Thai police, and eventually the native Thai’s bank accounts. Taking this as an opportunistic idea, the American funding eventually moved most of the Thais to the US, as well as start the steady trickle of Thai immigrants to the US.
There were around 6,500 Thai immigrants per year during the time period of 1980’s - 1990’s, which declined in to less than 3,000 in the years 1997-2002 due to families being reunited.
In 1961, the beginning of the Vietnam war, the Thais wanted to go to the US because education and economics were beneficial the time .There were 64,000 immigrants (Thai ) during the year of 1990 in the U.S.
Thai immigrants were a ratio of three women to one man.
Thais are famous for the new food varieties they brought over, and now Thai food and flavorings can be found in some restaurants today!
During the Vietnam war, the soldiers they sent to Thailand got influenced by the food and culture there. Many of the soldiers brought home Thai wives, and boosted the amount of Thai immigrants.
