Let's get it out of the way already:

1) Yeah, but how diverse is the foreign born in those areas?
2) Yeah, Miami and San Jose may have the largest percentages, but in terms of raw numbers, they don't count
3) Oh yeah, I know PLENTY of people from out of state who move here. I don't agree with the data
4) Mexicans and Asians don't count as foreign born, especially if they live West of the Mississippi
5) Why is this a good thing? These foreign born don't have a stake in the future of America

Any more I missed?

There is a huge problem with the context of those transplant figures and that is according to that ranking, a person who moves from Jersey City to Manhattan is considered a 'transplant', or if someone moves from Silver Spring to Alexandria that is considered 'transplant' and we all know that is horse manure.

Meanwhile a person can move from Sacramento to San Diego, a full 500 miles, and is still considered a non-transplant.

So as a matter of technicality sure, but as a matter of accurately portraying mobility, that part of the list is a bit off.

Ehhh, I see what you're saying but it's not really by cities but rather metropolitans. So a move from Hoboken to Brooklyn they don't count it since it's just a regional relocation from from within a metropolitan to another spot in it. If that had been the case, in all honesty I don't think New York would be towards the bottom of the list. I could see what you're saying if it was Ocean City, NJ to something like Queens but in that case it would still be a transplant situation?

I probably should have put out of staters but it still wouldn't be the right term for places with metropolitans in multiple states. Damn it Northeast! Complicating everything!

Not hard to attract immigrants when you border Mexico and are 90 miles from Cuba.

Ehhh while this is true somewhat to an extent, these cities get very unfairly judged on this forum for this.

If you took out the Mexican population for every city in the United States & instead of Mexican but rather the Cuban population of Miami it wont change it dramatically. Los Angeles, Houston, & Miami would still have among the 5-6 largest Hispanic populations in the United States with New York & Bay Area as the last two for the top 5.

Pretty much the cities at the top of the list would remain there, give or take a few percentage points because honestly the Mexican population doesn't add much to "foreign born" either way as much as it does to "fertility rate" in those cities.

Shouldn't Tucson, Phoenix, Albuquerque, San Antonio, and El Paso be even higher then?
Shouldn't San Diego be around 99% Mexican immigrant?

That's really not all that's in play. In fact, I think the proximity argument is a much smaller factor than most people realize. If that's the case, why does Chicago, Dallas, and the Bay Area have some of the highest population of Mexicans in the United States?
