Immigrants and the U.S.

As we all know, the main country immigrants try to move to is the United States and right now more than ever.  This consists of hundred different types of ethnic groups, people coming from all over the world here and bringing their tradional backrounds with them.  It is a major source of population growth and cultural change throughout the history of the united states.  It has led controversy among the different groups, reasons why some groups are able to find jobs and others are not, settlement arrangments and also crime and violent behavior.  The main reason why immigrants choose to move to this country is because it offers the best chances to find jobs and it has money.  Alot of people leave their home country and come here is because they can not find jobs that pay enough to raise a family and there isn’t a variety of jobs to choose from.  In fact, in 2006, the United States accpeted more legal immigrants as residents than any other country in the world.  Believe it or not, immigrants have lowered wages of African Americans and also lowered the emplyment rate.  Hispanics are the leaders in immigrating the U.S, the top three groups consist of Puerto Ricans, Mexican Americans, And Cubans. And that is not likely to change as they will continue to come here among other groups and it would not suprise me if one of the minority groups because a majority in the future because eventually most of them will be here.
