As a national debate rages over immigration policy, especially in regard to those coming from Mexico and the Middle East, the issue hits home for Michigan in several respects.

Mexicans form the single-largest group of immigrants living in Michigan, according to the latest data from the U.S. Census Bureau.

Michigan also has the nation’s largest proportion of Arab-Americans, a population largely concentrated in the metro Detroit area.

Overall, Michigan ranks 28th among 50 states and the District of Columbia in regard to the percent of its residents who were born outside the United States.

    Obama RE-CREATED Michigan within the FIRST month he was ELECTED as President the FIRST time! He is creating IMMIGRATION states, ONE state at a TIME in order to create these SOCIALIST/COMMUNIST/MARXIST VOTING DISTRICTS. Pay CLOSE ATTENTION, my fellow NATIVE-born AMERICANS!
