Asian immigration into the U.S.
Brief article on The Economist blog about how China and India now contribute the most number of immigrants to the U.S., not Mexico. This is something I didn't know. The comments section is especially interesting as various people debate the pros and cons of the changing face of our country.
In the SF Bay Area, there is white flight due to parents worried that their kids can't compete with the Asians in school. In other areas of the country, there is growing resentment towards Asians for changing the culture of schools, for making things too competitive, and for taking away what they perceive to be their kids' spots at elite colleges. On the other hand, there are those who welcome increased Asian immigration due to the Asian work ethic and emphasis on stable family structures.
