A big chunk of this seems based on what countries are nearby. I'm guessing the ethiopia/somalia/bhutan crew were probably refugees who worked their way down from Canada.

You misunderstood it. There are possibly more Canadians in ny than in mt, but Canadian immigrant # in ny ranks much lower than those from other countries, whereas it tops over those from others in mt.

Mt may appear as a wasteland for average Americans, it appeals to Canadians like a land of opportunity or paradise

The top three nations in 2011 were the Dominican Republic, China, and Mexico. The report notes that Dominican population growth is only 3% while Chinese population growth is 34%. If these rates hold the Chinese could end up the city's largest immigrant group. Mexican immigration to New York grew at 52%, as compared to 2000.

On a national basis Mexico was the number one source of immigrants, followed by China. Followed by India, the Phillipines, El Salvador, Vietnam, Cuba, Korea, the Dominican Republic and Guatemala.

The Indians that a lot of the whites and people of other groups have been exposed to in these areas are fresh off the boat immigrants who bring their foreign behavior and culture over to the USA. Most do not assimilate immediately and as a result the whites and other races in these area are hostile towards them (Pennsylvania is the worst I hear).

In states like South Carolina, Louisiana, or Texas for example, the racism is still there but not nearly as severe as so many people are used to being around more culturally assimilated Indians. So while a state like Pennsylvania might have a lot of Indian immigrants, it is still awful for Indian people in general since you can assume a lot of racism will exist towards them due to people running into so many culturally foreign Indians as opposed to the more racially assimilated ones.

Well, I once had an Indian woman tell me off because I revealed her "secrets." When I asked her what this big secret is that I revealed about her, she told me I told our mutual friends that she is from India. (I almost choked!) I said, "Are you joking? You have an accent and you look Indian!" She then told me that it's none of the "effin' friend's business" and that "you related personal information about me and that this is why I'm now the victim of discrimination." (ridiculous, but true). She deflected her issues entirely on me. She then proceeded to say that I am stupid for not knowing what is personal and what is not.

Another Indian girl that I know who's in Harvard, identifies as White. She asked me about my ethnicity. She then said, "I'm white because I was born in the UK"

I couldn't believe my ears. These experiences make me wonder...

I had to rep you on this one. Looks like a Mexican annexation.

I'd rather have our situation with the Mexicans than the Arab horde that is invading Europe.

I know there are lots of Chinese here but I did not know the population tops others; and I thought that there were more of them in CA but apparently Mexicans dominate over there.


You post says NYC, but the map is actually only states, i.e. NY

Do you have the NYC figures - might not be Chinese.
