[HDGEM] Immigrants are 3-4 times more likely to become millionaires than native-born Americans

Immigrants comprise 41% of the student population of Ivy League schools, yet only comprise 11% of the population in the U.S

55% of PhDs awarded in American colleges go to foreign born (Dr. Wulf, President, National Academy of Engineering, 2005) and 60% of the top science students and 65% of the top math students in the U.S. are children of immigrants (Wikipedia).

The average immigrant has fewer connections, less education, less understanding of American culture, and may not even speak the language, but can take the opportunities provided in this country and go from nothing to millions at four times the rate of a native citizen.
