Why does most of the foreigners go to L.A. or New York?

They are the two largest cities in the US, and both have growing economies. It's as simple as that.

Yep. And actually, only 30% of the nation's immigrants wind up settling in the New York or Los Angeles areas (15% in each) whereas the remaining 70% are elsewhere.

That's funny, if not at all politically correct. L A X is the major port of entry in this country and New York is a major entryway as well. Just the logistics of transportation I guess.

New York and LA are well known (same for a few more cities). That is the real reason why a lot of people settle in those areas from outside the country. People tell others back home where they are and they eventually want to live in the same area. Safety in numbers/they can help each other out. The poor do not live well in those cities though.

I am beginning to think they are all coming to Portland, Oregon, There seems to be more foreigners here than natives to the USA.
