I just posted a large piece on my George Mason blog site about the latest Gallup survey about immigration and who goes where and why.
And to be honest I really don’t want to repeat it all here. So just click on the hede above and take a look at what I posted at Mason.
Bottom line is that Canada is getting the older and better educated immigrants. And the competition for younger immigrants is no cake walk for the US either.
As I said but did not go into with the Mason blog, there are policy immplications here. I would think that some enterprising journalist in the DC area should be able to do several good stories about this issue. He/she just needs to follow up on the Gallup numbers, tie them in with Census data and conduct a few a interviews.
Oh, and convince an editor that there is much more here than just numbers and survey results. There is a local-global connection as well as policy issues that should keep even the most jaded DC wonk happy.
