Coming To The US

Here are amazing visualizations showing immigration to the US from 1820 to 2007, taken from this site. Remember each dot represents a 100 people.

First a black and white rendition:

  1. Amazing graphics. NOt surprising though. I've lived all over and completely get why our homeland is such a draw. Ironic isn't it? To be the most hated nation on earth while also being the place everyone chooses to live when they leave their own. Its like, "Come to America, where you too can be hated by the rest of the world."
