I rarely see any Mexican license plates around here, I do see a lot of California and Texas plates in Mexican majority areas.

I think Arizona's is pretty obvious. Almost exclusively Sonoran. You won't find much Baja or Chihuahua immigrants but you will find their cuisine relatively easily especially in Tucson which is a sanctuary city.

I'm curious what the patterns for other parts of the US are. This is relevant partly because it determines what kinds of Mexican food you can get in a given area. In NYC there are lots of Puebla options but not much in the way of Baja cuisine, for instance.

Side note, I found it very difficult to word the title in a way that made sense.
My family is from Michoacan, Jalisco and Baja California, they settled in California in the late 1800s. My paternal great grandfather lived in Chicago for a while and my maternal great grandfather in Colorado (he died there), working in factories and building roads.

From what I know the migration pattern to New York started in the early 1980s (if I am not mistaken) and it is one of the newer communities in the US.

Here in southern CA (by the border) there are people mostly from Baja CA, Sinaloa, Sonora, Jalisco, Michoacán and Oaxaca. Oaxacans have been coming to CA since the 1960s but people tend to ignore them as a community (not sure why, maybe because many are indigenous and more reserved).

San Antonio actually attracts a lot of wealthy Mexican immigrants (Houston as well). Anyways I think most Mexican immigrants in San Antonio and Austin come from Nuevo Leon or Tamaulipas.
