Asians Overtake Latin Americans in Immigration to California

Source: NBC

If current trends hold, the number of immigrants from China and Taiwan could overtake those from Mexico


Immigration to California from Asia has overtaken the long-running influx from Latin America, marking a shift that one expert says is based in economic conditions, border enforcement and deportation.

A new analysis of U.S. Census data from the Public Policy Institute of California shows that Asians are coming into the Golden State at more than twice the rate of immigrants from Latin American countries.

"The main reason is related to the economy. Most people who move are doing so because of jobs and economic opportunities," said immigration expert Hans Johnson, co-director of research at PPIC, in an interview with NBC4. "With the decline in the economy, there is less of a magnet to California and the U.S."

1. THE GREAT MELTING POT OF SOCIETY

 

California is a good mix of people in the urban areas. In the big valley and rural areas it is VERY white and GOP. My family has the blonds, red hair, and mexican and Japanese. This is a good mix for a family and I would think the politics shares the same mix. I only hope the rest of th country can get along with a continued mixing of societies best for a better society in the future versus a retarded society regressing to wards the dark ages.
