    Which U.S. State Has the Most Immigrants?

    Stuart Fox, Yahoo! News, April 28, 2010

    Immigration to America began around 1492, and hasn’t let up much since then. Almost everyone in the U.S. is from somewhere else if you look far enough back, but most recent immigrants reside in California, New York, Texas, Illinois or Florida.

    Here are the top five states, with the total number of foreign-born residents that each had in 2008, according to American Community Survey:

    California (9,859,027)
    New York (4,236,768)
    Texas (3,887,224)
    Florida (3,391,511)
    Illinois (1,782,423)

    Arizona, which sparked controversy when lawmakers passed new legislation aimed at identifying and prosecuting illegal immigrants, finished at number eight on the list with 932,518 immigrants.

    But physical proximity isn’t always a requirement. Illinois has long been a hub of Eastern European immigration. In this case, initial settlement by a group led to increased future settlement by members of the same group.

    “Immigration is greatly facilitated by networks that connect immigrants with jobs, help them integrate, and move on with their lives in the United States. And of course, they come for jobs,” Batalova [Janne Batalova, an immigration policy analyst at the Migration Policy Institute] said.

    The economic attraction explains the traditional migration of immigrants to big cities like Los Angeles, New York City, Chicago, Miami and Dallas, Batalova said. In 2008, nearly 38 million Americans hailed from another country, and more than 8 million of those resided in either Los Angeles or New York City, according to the 2008 American Community Survey.

    Do those figures include illegals?

    What the article fails to mention is that ever since 1965 we've had unprecedented amounts of immigrants pouring in - vastly from non-European third world countries. A lot of good it has done us..

    THe American Community Survey is conducted by the US Census Bureau & they count illegals.

    Here are the estimated number of illegal immigrants per state:

    California: 2,209,000
    Texas: 1,041,000
    New York: 489,000
    Illinois: 432,000
    Florida: 337,000
    Arizona: 283,000
    Georgia: 228,000
    New Jersey: 221,000
    North Carolina: 206,000
    Colorado: 144,000
    Source.

    American born children of immigrants, legal or illegal, are not included in these numbers.

    Immigration to the americas didn't start at 1492. It goes back 10s of thousand years.

    There have also been white tribes in the territory of what is now the USA. These tribes existed until around 7,000 years ago. Most likely they have been killed by other immigrants, those which are called Amerinds today.

    This map gives a visual on where ilegal aliens are located, but legal immigrants are concentrated in the same areas.

    USA Population Maps 1990 - 2090:

    Racial Population Growth & Decline Statistics, represented at 10 year intervals, including related political events and laws promulgated.

    Put differently, it provides a greater more detailed political and demographic perspective to the events between 1990 and 2010, and the extrapolated projections for 2010 to 2090.

    Provides further justifications for why Ecologically-minded liberals should also heed Dr. Salter’s work, for only when Third-World populations are made to bear the consequences of their own reproductive irresponsibility will they, and the world as a whole, establish population policies that protect the environment.

    Closing off the “safety valve” of Third-World immigration to the West should be as attractive to the sincere left as to the racial right.

    Or as stated in The Feast of Malthus: “Don't try to solve your population problem by exporting your excess people to us.”

    Population time-line:



    George Bush wins closest election in US history, decided by Supreme Court. Both Bush and Gore campaigned for more immigration and guestworker programs for illegal aliens. August, 2001 - Amnesty for illegal aliens blocked in congress with massive citizen pressure. September 11, 2001 Islamic fundamentalists from Afghanistan attack, USA subsequently attacks Afghanistan, but does not alter border security or immigration law. March 2003 - US invades Iraq, and takes capital in 3 weeks after a massive bombing campaign - 129 US soldiers killed. Over 2000 die in subsequent occupation. Oct 2003 - California state government bankrupt, an actor wins special recall election removing Grey Davis from office, becoming the second governor in history to be recalled. Jan 2004 - President Bush calls for a guestworker program to allow every foreign worker to compete for every American job. 2004 - NY grants in-state tuition rates to illegal aliens, joining a dozen states. February 22, 2005 - Kelo v. New London, liberal supreme court majority rules local governments should be afforded wide latitude in seizing property for private development, conservatives O'Connor Rehnquist, Scalia, Thomas dissent. Over 10,000 homes are sized in first year following decision, private home market declines. May 2005 - Real ID Act signed in response to about a dozen states issuing drivers licenses to illegal aliens. Dec 2005 - Republican House joined by a small number of Democrats passes first enforcement only immigration bill since 1924, Senate responds with multiple guestworker and amnesty proposals involving little or no enforcement. 2006 - Immigration, both legal and illegal, are currently at record levels with no sign of slowing. Immigration reduction is championed by a few dozen house Republicans, but is opposed by the national Republican party as well as most elected Democrats. President Bush's approval ratings reach an all time low in March 2006 with 70% of Americans saying the USA is on the wrong track.









    Caucasians will be a minority in the USA.







    Caucasians just 35% of total population, the inverse of 2006. Today's racial minorities likely dominate politics to same degree as Caucasians dominate in 2006.





    USA reaches 1 billion people, over 3 times the current population. Caucasians just 25% or less of American population.

    133 million Hispanics in the U.S. by 2050, if immigration continues as is:

    Lawrence Harrison in the Christian Science Monitor says, "We should calibrate legal immigration annually to (1) the needs of the economy, ... and (2) past performance of immigrant groups with respect to acculturation." Moreover, Harrison emphasizes that Hispanics have a different and in key respects inferior culture to ours and are not assimilating. Which means that his acculturation test points to a great reduction in Hispanic immigration. It is rare, to say the least, to see in a mainstream liberal--or conservative--publication such a frank treatment of cultural differences between Third-Worlder immigrants and ourselves, plus a practical notion of what to do about them. Harrison's cultural realism is a far cry from Mark Krikorian's off-the-planet argument that today's immigrants are no different from past immigrants and that the only thing that has changed is our ability to assimilate them.

    As for me, I think we're beyond the point where any acculturation test will save us. We need to stop virtually all non-Western immigration, remove all illegals by enforcement and/or attrition, and wage unrelenting political war against the white liberals who openly seek our destruction.

    Here is Harrison's article.

    What will America stand for in 2050?

    The U.S. should think long and hard about the high number of Latino immigrants.

    By Lawrence Harrison
    Palo Alto, Calif.
    May 28, 2009 edition

    President Obama has encouraged Americans to start laying a new foundation for the country--on a number of fronts. He has stressed that we'll need to have the courage to make some hard choices. One of those hard choices is how to handle immigration. The U.S. must get serious about the tide of legal and illegal immigrants, above all from Latin America.

    It's not just a short-run issue of immigrants competing with citizens for jobs as unemployment approaches 10 percent or the number of uninsured straining the quality of healthcare. Heavy immigration from Latin America threatens our cohesiveness as a nation.

    The political realities of the rapidly growing Latino population are such that Mr. Obama may be the last president who can avert the permanent, vast underclass implied by the current Census Bureau projection for 2050.

    Do I sound like a right-wing "nativist"? I'm not. I'm a lifelong Democrat; an early and avid supporter of Obama. I'm a member, along with several other Democrats, of the advisory boards of the Federation for American Immigration Reform and Pro English. Similar concerns preoccupied the distinguished Democrat Barbara Jordan when she chaired the congressionally mandated U.S. Commission on Immigration Reform in the 1990s.

    Congresswoman Jordan was worried about the adverse impact of high levels of legal and illegal immigration on poor citizens, disproportionately Latinos and African-Americans. The principal beneficiaries of our current immigration policy are affluent Americans who hire immigrants at substandard wages for low-end work. Harvard economist George Borjas estimates that American workers lose $190 billion annually in depressed wages caused by the constant flooding of the labor market at the low-wage end.

    The healthcare cost of the illegal workforce is especially burdensome, and is subsidized by taxpayers. To claim Medicaid, you must be legal, but as the Health and Human Services inspector general found, 47 states allow self-declaration of status for Medicaid. Many hospitals and clinics are going broke because of the constant stream of uninsured, many of whom are the estimated 12 million to 15 million illegal immigrants. This translates into reduced services, particularly for lower-income citizens.

    The U.S. population totaled 281 million in 2000. About 35 million, or 12.5 percent, were Latino. The Census Bureau projects that our population will reach 439 million in 2050, a 56 percent increase over the 2000 census. The Hispanic population in 2050 is projected at 133 million--30 percent of the total and almost quadruple the 2000 level. Population growth is the principal threat to the environment via natural resource use, sprawl, and pollution. And population growth is fueled chiefly by immigration.

    Consider what this, combined with worrisome evidence that Latinos are not melting into our cultural mainstream, means for the U.S. Latinos have contributed some positive cultural attributes, such as multigenerational family bonds, to U.S. society. But the same traditional values that lie behind Latin America's difficulties in achieving democratic stability, social justice, and prosperity are being substantially perpetuated among Hispanic-Americans.

    Prominent Latin Americans have concluded that traditional values are at the root of the region's development problems. Among those expressing that opinion: Peruvian writer Mario Vargas Llosa; Nobelist author Octavio Paz, a Mexican; Teodoro Moscoso, a Puerto Rican politician and U.S. ambassador to Venezuela; and Ecuador's former president, Osvaldo Hurtado.

    Latin America's cultural problem is apparent in the persistent Latino high school dropout rate--40 percent in California, according to a recent study--and the high incidence of teenage pregnancy, single mothers, and crime. The perpetuation of Latino culture is facilitated by the Spanish language's growing challenge to English as our national language. It makes it easier for Latinos to avoid the melting pot and for education to remain a low priority, as it is in Latin America--a problem highlighted in recent books by former New York City deputy mayor Herman Badillo, a Puerto Rican, and Mexican-Americans Lionel Sosa and Ernesto Caravantes.

    Language is the conduit of culture. Consider: There is no word in Spanish for "compromise" (compromiso means "commitment") nor for "accountability," a problem that is compounded by a verb structure that converts "I dropped (broke, forgot) something" into "it got dropped" ("broken," "forgotten").

    As the USAID mission director during the first two years of the Sandinista regime in Nicaragua, I had difficulty communicating "dissent" to a government minister at a crucial moment in our efforts to convince the U.S. Congress to approve a special appropriation for Nicaragua.

    I was later told by a bilingual, bicultural Nicaraguan educator that when I used "dissent" what my Nicaraguan counterparts understood was "heresy." "We are, after all, children of the Inquisition," he added.

    In a letter to me in 1991, Mexican-American columnist Richard Estrada described the essence of the problem of immigration as one of numbers. We should really worry, he wrote, "when the numbers begin to favor not only the maintenance and replenishment of the immigrants' source culture, but also its overall growth, and in particular growth so large that the numbers not only impede assimilation but go beyond to pose a challenge to the traditional culture of the American nation."

    Obama should confront the challenges by enforcing immigration laws on employment to help end illegal immigration. We should calibrate legal immigration annually to (1) the needs of the economy, as Ms. Jordan urged, and (2) past performance of immigrant groups with respect to acculturation.

    We must declare our national language to be English and discourage the proliferation of Spanish- language media. We should limit citizenship by birth to the offspring of citizens. And we should provide immigrants with easy-to-access educational services that facilitate acculturation, including English language, citizenship, and American values.

    ^ Those maps show why it is in the best interests of the Republican Party to come out against immigration. Republicans use to be able to win statewide races in California, now it is an improbability (Schwarzenegger is essentially a DEm posing as a Republican), because of the increase of Latinos on the voter rolls & the flight of White Republicans to other states. Florida is close to being as lost cause for Rep. & Texas will tilt over to the Dems eventually. This shows the Republicans are just plain stupid when it comes to race issues or they are part of an evil conspiracy.

    Or maybe to warped up in the interests of big business who are only interested in cheap labor and not in the consequences of such policies. Since mostly the top-managers do not live in the neighborhoods where those immigrants live. And only see them as cheap nannies, gardeners and workers in their companies. And they are the ones making the larger contributions to the campaign chest.

    So at least a few are both corrupt and stupid.
    The sense of honor is of so fine and delicate a nature that
    it is only to be met with in minds which are naturally noble or
    cultivated by good examples and a refined education.
