Chart shows percentage of foreign country's population in U.S.: Guyana at 32%, Mexico at 11%

COVID-19 Response

Like everyone else, we urge you to wash your hands and engage in social distancing.

Unlike everyone else, we urge you to also help with this smart plan to get more tests, ventilators, and PPE. Everyone can do that plan right now, at home, in just 15 minutes.

If enough people help with the plan we can save lives. Take time out now and help get more desperately-needed supplies.

There's a chart here (see UPDATE) showing the percentages of various foreign countries populations who now live in the U.S. The data is from a government source and Pew Hispanic and is from 2007. The figures are probably on the low side.

Leading off, almost one third of Guyana's population lives here (31.8%). Next up are Trinidad & Tobago (21.3%), Jamaica (21.1%), El Salvador, (16.0%), Mexico (10.8%), Cuba (8.6%), the Dominican Republic (8.0%), Haiti (6.3%), Honduras (5.7%), Guatemala (5.4%), and Nicaragua (4.1%). The string of Latin America/Caribbean countries is finally broken by Ireland at 3.4%.

As for numbers of persons, Mexico is of course far in the lead with 11,739,560, followed by the Philippines (1,708,542), India (1,513,953), and China (1,367,772). As a percentage of those countries' populations, the last two are just 0.1%.
