These are the top ten countries with the mostforeign-born immigrants living there, and
where the different groups in each countrycame from, according to a 2013 report by the United Nations.
Number ten is Spain.
Romanians are the biggest group of foreign-born in Spain.
很多人觉得可能是摩洛哥人 因为这两个国家很近 基本上相邻
You’d think it would be Moroccans becauseof it’s proximity – they’re basically neighbors.
But Romanians in Spain became more numerousthan Moroccans around 2007.
Latin American immigrants are also well-representedbecause of the appeal of still being able to speak Spanish.
西班牙 和名单中的其他国家一样 主要是靠强大的经济
Spain – and every other country on this list- draws immigrants mainly because of its relatively
strong economy, although Spain has taken abig hit after the global financial crisis
led to the collapse of its housing market.
With almost 6.5 million immigrants Australiais number nine.
There are almost three times as many Britsliving in Australia as the next most prevalent
group down under, the Chinese.
In fact, out of all the countries in the world,Australia is home to the most British immigrants.
Australia’s foreign born population in relationto the rest of the country is pretty large,
with more than 1 in 4 of its residents comingfrom somewhere else.
Number eight is Canada.
Even though Canada and America share one ofthe longest borders in the world, there are
only 317,000 Americans living north of itsnorthern border.
But Canada is home to the biggest Hong Kongcommunity outside of Hong Kong, and to reciprocate,
Hong Kong is home to the most Canadians ofany city in Asia.
France and its 7.4 million immigrants is numberseven on this list.
Its largest immigrant group is from Algeria,which is also its only foreign-born population
larger than 1 million people.
Algeria was a colony of France for more thana century until it declared independence in
1962, so the ties between the two countriesremain deep.
Number six is the United Kingdom.
As an island nation, its easier for the UnitedKingdom to regulate immigration.
Just like France, the UK’s biggest sourceof immigrants is a former colony–in this
case, India, whom Britain ruled until 1947.
After Poland joined the European Union in2004, the number of Poles coming to the United
Kingdom increased sharply.
The UK is now home to more Polish immigrants
than any other country in the world.
With 7.8 million immigrates
the United Arab Emirates is the five on this list.
A staggering 83.7% percent of the people
living in the UAE were born in another country.
That’s by far the highest ratein the world.
每年有几十万来自印度 孟加拉国 巴基斯坦的工人
Indian, Bangladeshi, and Pakistani workersarrive by the hundreds of thousands each year
来到这里 像迪拜 阿布扎比这些地方正在经历世界上前所未有的
to help build the UAE, as places like Dubaiand Abu Dhabi experience a construction boom
unlike any the world has ever seen.
Fourth is Saudi Arabia’s 9 million foreign-born people
Saudi Arabia is right up there with Russia
as the world’s biggest exporter of oil
which drives its entire economy and attractsmillions of immigrants.
The vast majority of migrant workers come from
the Indian subcontinent, Southeast Asia and Africa
工作在农业 清洁 和家政服务业
and are employed in the agriculture,cleaning and domestic service industries.
With nearly 10 million immigrants, Germany is number 3 on this list
Turks are the largest immigrant group in Germany
a trend that began on a wide scale during
a labor shortage in the 1960’s and 1970’s in West Germany
which the government solved by striking a labor deal with the government of Turkey.
The more than 1 million Polish immigrants in Germany makes sense
because the two countries are neighbors
And, after the fall of the Soviet Union and the Berlin Wall
so does the more than 1 million Russians who were attracted to Germany
like the Poles, because of the strong German economy.
第二名 俄罗斯 有超过一千一百万移民
Number 2 is Russia with more than 11 million immigrants.
All ten of Russia’s largest immigrant groups
came from countries that used to be part of the Soviet Union.
They come because Russia’s economy is stronger than their own
but they’re pretty much the only ones arriving
The number of people leaving Russia in 2013 stood at 186,000
that’s more than five times as many left the country just three years earlier in 2010
And number one is the United States of America
with more than 45 million foreign-born residents.
One in every five people in the whole world
living outside of their country of birth live in the United States.
That’s a big deal
And is the single biggest reason why the Americans lead the world
both economically and culturally.
The nearly 13 million Mexicans living in the United States
make up the single largest group of immigrants anywhere in the world.
今天 亚洲 包括印度和中国
Today, Asians, which includes, and is drivenby, Chinese and Indians,
are the largest immigrant group coming to America.
