Some facts we should know before and after watching this awesome movie (facts taken from visitor official site)

Number of immigrants: 1 million enter the U.S. annually. 35 million currently live here.

Top ten countries where people immigrate from (in order of population): Mexico, India, China, Philippines, Ireland, El Salvador, Dominican Republic, Canada, Korea and Cuba

Where do they live? 70% of the total foreign-born population, as of 2000, live in California, New York, Florida, Texas, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Illinois. More recently, there has been a shift, with more and more immigrants settling in new gateway communities, including suburbs, the Midwest and the South.
