Facts about Immigration in the USA

Here is an article that presents a lot of interesting facts about the current immigration situation in the USA.

For instance, it's common knowledge that the USA is the number one choice for immigrants in the world.  But which country is number two? You might be surprised to read the article and find out! In fact, given the fact that the number two country for immigrants is struggling economically, and has various social problems, I was really surprised to find it listed as number two.

Actually, Russia is listed in this article as the number two destination for immigrants!  Why Russia?

Another interesting fact is that about 25% of all immigrants coming into the USA are from South or East Asia.  (South Asia = Bangladesh, Pakistan, India; East Asia = China and Korea...I don't think many Japanese people are immigrating to the USA - in New York City it looks as if there are a lot of Chinese and Korean immigrants.)  Why do you think this is the case?

The article on immigration:
Yes, I'm the guy who wrote the very funny ESL book: New York City Sucks, But You'll Wanna Live Here Anyway.

If this page is useful to you, please buy the book (it's quite inexpensive and useful!!!!). If you don't have an e-reader, drop me a line at and I'll send you a free copy via Word file. Let me know whether you have Word 2010 or an earlier version.
Yes, I'm also the guy who created the scandal in Asia two years ago :P
