The Immigrant Advantage

"If you want to die a successful American, especially in the heartland, it helps to be born abroad.  Statistics show that if you are born elsewhere and later acquire American citizenship, you will, on average, earn more than us native-borns, study further, marry at higher rates and divorce at lower rates, fall out of the work force less frequently and more easily dodge poverty." - Anand Giridharadas, May 25, 2014.
