the data I used is the very latest, meaning wikipedia is not updated to reflect the change.

"Foreign-born" means many things....might be fresh immigrants from India who come to Stanford for their Engineering PhD and later start a valuable SiliconValley tech co; make a few bucks and create many new jobs in US.....or a hard-working, industrious, poorly-educated immigrant who hopes to find some work and to educate his kids for upward economic mobility...or many worse scenarios...

Places like Miami (and rest of FL) have dismal education/literacy/numeracy rates among all residents, both US-born and immigrants....

But many US-born people can barely read English or count, so Miami isn't all that unique...

Also, some regions like NYC and SF continually attract smart, industrious, highly-educated "immigrants" from Podunk US who choose to emigrate to these regions after a decent college education....

It's a bad thing.
The two cities listed that are in the Boston area (Lynn, Lawrence) are the worst communities in the state.
Illiteracy, illegitimacy, welfare, drugs, and gangs.
Yippeee!

That's because immigrants come here and are usually very poor at first.

On the flip side,
Many of those Bay Area towns up there are very safe, quite wealthy and have excellent schools.
