- San Francisco are and the Washington DC area are the leading locations for college educated immigrants to migrate to. The presence of Silicon Valley and the presence of government and international institutions easily explain this.
- The fastest growing urban hubs for immigrants have on average less educated immigrant populations than other places where immigrants are settling. I assess that this is primarily due to the need of uneducated immigrants, much less likely to have needed abilities like speaking English, need to cluster in high concentrations in order to function within society.
- Uneducated immigrants are "are much more likely to hail from Mexico, less likely to speak English proficiently, more likely to be male, and less likely to be naturalized U.S. citizens than high-skilled immigrants."
- Uneducated immigrants actually have higher rates of employment and lower rates of household poverty compared to American-born people but their earnings are lower. This makes sense as there is no point of being an illegal alien, in most places, if you cannot earn a paycheck to live off of and send money home.
