THE FASTER RED AMERICA BROWNS...:

In Shift, 40% of Immigrants Move Directly to Suburbs (SAM ROBERTS, 10/17/07, NY Times)

About 4 in 10 immigrants are moving directly from abroad to the nation’s suburbs, which are growing increasingly diverse, according to census figures released yesterday. [...]

“For blacks, especially, it mimics the 50s-style suburban movement, most pronounced for married couples with children, owners and the upwardly mobile,” said William H. Frey, a Brookings Institution demographer.

Dr. Frey’s analysis of mobility patterns found that while Hispanic and Asian immigrants were more likely to settle first in the nation’s cities, “after they get settled, they follow the train to the suburbs.”


...the sooner the nativists shut up.
