Where do we come from?

Whether or not Americans think so, the United States is still the land of opportunity.  More than 40 million immigrants, the US is still the top destination in the world for people moving from one country to another.

The Pew Research Center put together a map of where each state’s largest immigrant population was born.  For 2010 (the last time the US Census was conducted), the answer for most states was Mexico.  One hundred years earlier, the answer would have been Germany.  Take a look and see where the majority of your state’s immigrants come from.
