Duh: Miami Leads Nation in Number of Immigrants
We are still in the news-hole hell of July, which means it's cucumber season. Which means the Daily Beast keeps pumping out city ranking lists and we keep covering them. This latest lineup by listmeister Richard Florida isn't surprisingl: Miami/Fort Lauderdale has more immigrants than any other metro area in America. Well, duh.
"Famous for its large Cuban population, Miami has a large Spanish-speaking population (nearly 60%) that people say its hard to conduct business unless you're fluent in the language," Florida writes while linking to a two-year-old AP article about those poor, put-out white people who feel they have to leave the city because they don't speak Spanish.
The San Jose-Sunnyvale-Santa Clara, California metro area comes in second with 36.31 percent of its population made up of immigrants.
