With all the immigration talk lately, thought I'd share a positive story I read today regarding immigration in the U.S. Personally, I think Asians have more positive skills and cultural influences to bring the our nation then Hispanics.
Full story hereAsians are the fastest-growing, most educated and highest-earning population in the U.S., according to a new report that paints the majority-immigrant group as a boon to an economy that has come to rely increasingly on skilled workers.
The number of Asians in the U.S. quadrupled between 1980 and 2010 to about 18 million, or 6% of the total population, according to "The Rise of Asian Americans," a study released Tuesday by the nonpartisan Pew Research Center. The bulk of Asians in the U.S. trace their roots to six countries: China, India, Japan, Korea, the Philippines and Vietnam.
As a group, Asians place more value than Americans overall on marriage, parenting, hard work and careers, according to the report. Irrespective of their country of origin, Asians overall believe that American parents are too soft on their children.
Well...it might be a fact that asians tend to be more educated than hispanics, considering the cultural backgrounds and values...But than again I find a lot of asians to be quite inward and isolated, most tend to stay within their own community while other immigrants actually do adapt to their new society. I'm a first gen Chinese immigrant, but most of my friends aren't asian, that's cause I can't stand their k-pop culture...
This is because as asians are far away, you get the pick of them.
The only asians that can come to the US are those that can afford air travel.
Mexico is just south of you.
If your southern neighbour were the Phillipines or Thailand you'd get poor and uneducated asians as well.

As JCR mentions, much of it has to do with the distance and cost of traveling to the US as opposed to driving across the border.
There is also the fact that Asian culture does put an emphasis on bringing "honor" to the family, which causes parents to pressure their kinds more to achieve. Or course, this can definitely backfire.
