The Best Immigrants in America are Asian

Updated on June 20, 2012

According to the U.S. Immigration, of all the immigrants coming China, Japan, Korea, India, and the Philippines, Asians are the best class of people overall. Of course, there are exceptions, but overall, the majority have preference status over all others because they are often well educated, innovative, hard working and help promote American values in work ethics and innovation. Since 1980, over 18 million have arrived and account for six percent of Americans.

Statistics show immigrants from those coming from south of the border are generally much less educated, are more inclined to not blend with American culture, are less innovative. Half of the Asians have a college degree and have a medium income of $66,000, while others, only $50,000. Most value the family as a traditional unit and as parents are much harder on their children than most Americans to be successful. Nearly 75% of them are foreign born, so most are still from the first generation immigrants. Asians now have displaced Hispanics as America's #1 immigrant group.

Hispanics tend to hold blue-collar lower wage jobs, while Asians are more likely to hold white-collar jobs. Projections indicate that by 2050, there will be 41 million Asians in the USA. Asians tend to prefer the West Coast for climate and technology sectors. For instance, in Bellevue, Washington, 28% of its population are Asian. In 2010, 45% of all science and engineering degrees from U.S. universities went to Asians.

When well educated immigrants want to immigrate to the USA, many bypass the long waiting periods and problems endured by those with little education. In the eyes of immigration, those with no education above high school are simply not valuable to the U.S. economy, so standards are tougher and longer. When well educated immigrants knock to come in (such as, medical, technology, legal, and many more) most will get a Green card much faster than the others. That is a simple fact.

The only downside to Asians, is that, when one creates their own company or business, they tend to favor other Asians to hire, if all other aspects are fairly equal. This is no different than Hispanics or other immigrant groups. So, race ethnicity discrimination remains unless the business is "called" on it in a legal setting.

Many Asians interviewed thought that a majority of Americans (all color) were lacking as parents and not instilling in their children the work and education ethics, Asians do. They claim many are lazy or lack a "drive". I can relate to that, having Asian friends in the past, their parents were like a Communist regime when it came to school, at any level. Pressure was on them to perform well. Many times, they studied as I played. Many times, they were so happy just to play for fun.

A word many Asians either don't understand or send to the bottom of a goal list. But, it does show.

      I wonder what America would be like today if the Native Americans had held the same standards over the heads of Europeans before they set foot on the soil?
