    Paraphrasing from The U.S. Census "In 2003....37.3 percent.... of the foreign born population.... lived in the West....In contrast, among the native population... 21.0 percent...lived in the West" That's hardly the whole story and for a quick look check it out. http://www.census.gov/prod/2004pubs/p20-551.pdf
