I think Miami's rank at the top of this list may cause some misinterpretations. Yes Miami's got a huge foreign born population, but this group is undoubtedly dominated by latinos. If you look further down the list you'll see San Diego and San Francisco, which may not have the same percentage of foreign born citizens, but are not dominated by any one ethnicity.

So Miami. High foreign population? Yes. Diverse? Not necessarily.

Let's be real, at least a plurarlity of Miami's hispanics are of Cuban ancestary, in the same way a plurality (maybe even a majority) of SoCal's hispanics are of Mexican ancestary. Hispanics are hardly a monolithic group, but as with any national identity, those of the same nation tend to stick together. This wasn't about diversity, but let us not misrepresent the fact that many of these metros are rather homogeneous if we're speaking of nation of orgin.

^^ Compared to some other regions, perhaps, but undoubtedly still much more diverse than large number of other metros.

Anyway, no surprise the majority of them are in California and Texas. Georgia and Arizona are no surprise either. Of course, NY is the dark horse :), not that its unexpected.

Well that was kind of harsh...Who said I hated Miami? I sure as hell didn't. Not my business? I'm sorry, a thread has been started in the name of foreign born residents, so not only is it my business, it's everyone else's too.

I understand this is not about diversity, and by no means was I cutting down Miami, I was just putting it out there.

^^ Dont worry about it, people tend to get protective if they sense even the smallest antagonism towards their hometown :)

New York's primary metro is higher than the CSA overall, but not by much...

New York-Northern New Jersey-Long Island, NY-NJ-PA Metro Area 27.9%

Edison, NJ Metro Division 17.7%
Nassau-Suffolk, NY Metro Division 16.1%
New York-White Plains-Wayne, NY-NJ Metro Division 34.2%
Newark-Union, NJ-PA Metro Division 20.5%


Places like Long Island and Central Jersey bring the overall percentage down...still, I think that even Newark is on the 20%+ list, a lot more immigrants go to Bergen-Hudson counties than the Newark area.
