yeah the great thing about these restaurants are that they're actually owned and operated by Mexicans, unlike those trendy yuppie "taquerias" in hip neighborhoods in big cities that claim to be authentic. Not that there's anything really wrong with them

I am. Nashville isn't a city I would assume had any substantial immigration population.

Akron (and Cleveland) have also have recently been taking in refugees from the Congo, but not in the same numbers as Southeast Asians. Overall, Akron hasn't experienced as great of a population decline as some of the other industrial Midwestern cities (peak population of 290,000 to now 199,000), but the refugee resettlements are the biggest reason it may climb back over 200,000 in the 2020 census. The children who came over in the early 2000s are now reaching adult age, so on top of continuing to gain in international migration, the city should start seeing a boost in native births in the coming years, since they tend to have large families.
Dayton OH is also very diverse and filled with immigrants and immigrant communities from all over the world. Overall, the diversity of the larger OH cities really surprised me - in a good way. I like Ohio cities for the most part. Heck, I like Ohio.

Aurora, Colorado (and surprisingly not Denver) is the immigrant "capital" of the state with noteworthy Asian, African, and Hispanic immigrant communities.

Interesting you said that. Can't blame you because I felt the same way but then on the same token it was a time when Atlanta and Georgia would have got the same comment because it's Georgia, who would think of it having immigrants being a southern state back in the day but now people see it different especially after the Olympics. Nashville is no different. I have never looked at Nashville as a small city per say after passing though it year after year heading to visit family in Chicago, always seem busy with traffic so to speak back in the early 90's passing through, but I just always looked at it as a mid sized and county music city with that big industrial looking trash heap sitting right in front of the skyline before they removed it.. No more my friend, no more!!! Nashville feel more diverse and integrated than some larger cities I know and even less segregated feeling than here in Atlanta to me especially at neighborhood level. DT on So bro feels like a country music tourist show case more than any thing with other mixes of hip and music venues scattered around, but other than that Nashville feels like a booming, bustling, diverse cosmopolitan city current day. If you have never been there you would be highly surprised. It's one of those cities that is very open to it's immigrant community and I like that. People don't feel separated like in some cities I have been to.

My little hamlet of Shorewood, WI is a favored destination for Russian/USSR immigrants. I don't think I've ever visited our library without hearing Russian being spoken. Fliers come home from school for meetings stating Russian, Arabic, and Mandarin speakers will be available. We have a Russian store in town.

It makes for some good hockey players on my kids' teams .
