Map Shows the Countries Other Than Mexico That Have the Most Immigrants in Each U.S. State

New York prides itself on its diversity, so it comes as no surprise that we have the second-highest immigration population in the country. But what may be surprising is that the most immigrants–other than those from Mexico–in our state come from China, according to this informative map. In nearby New Jersey and Connecticut, India is responsible for the largest immigrant group.

The map comes courtesy of the Bank of America Merrill Lynch, who used data from the Department of Homeland Security to create a “Transforming World Atlas” that explores large demographic and economic trends around the world. In 2013, Mexico was overwhelmingly the largest immigrant group in the country, so the fact that this map doesn’t include that country of origin makes for an interesting picture. Some of the more unexpected immigrant groups in states are Iraq in Michigan and Idaho, Bhutan in Vermont and New Hampshire, and Burma in much of the Midwest.

    Regarding Michigan, why would Iraq surprise you? – to start with, Dearborn has long been known the world-over as having the largest proportion of Arab-Americans in the USA (more than 40% of the city), with immigrants arriving as far back as the early 20th century (though to be fair, Iraqis arrived quite notably later than Lebanese and Syrian families). Though still mostly concentrated in the southern half of the State’s lower peninsula, like all of our immigrant ancestors at one point or another, these families have long-since branched-out from their common point of arrival to all manner of urban & suburban locations in the State.
