Immigration into the US by Country….

When we all talk about immigration….

These days Latino’s and Hispanic’s come to mind….

But that isn’t really the whole picture…

True the largest number IS from Mexico….

But…

On the whole that equals just a quarter of the total….

I’ve listed the numbers from wiki.
