Census: Miami More International Than Ever, With Residents Born Overseas Now At New Record

Miami’s population has been booming this decade. New census data shows that the area’s foreign born population (particularly Cuban) is also at a new record level, according to the Herald.

In the seven years from 2010 to 2017, the biggest growth in Miami-Dade’s foreign born population came from:

  • Venezuela – up 21,000, or 57 percent. Total population now at 61,000
  • Spain – up 29 percent. Total now at more than 10,000
  • Brazil – up 24 percent. Total at 15,000
  • Cuba – up 120,000, or 21 percent. Total now at 700,000
  • Dominican Republic – up 20 percent. Total now at more than 41,000
  • Southeast Asian countries – up 20 percent. Total now over 11,000.

Cubans now comprise 25.7 percent of the Miami-Dade’s population, compared to 23.5 percent in 2010. The Cuban-born population is also growing much faster now than last decade.

Central American countries have shrunk as a percentage of Miami-Dade’s population from 16 percent to 13.8 percent this decade due to lack of growth. The percentage of Haitians in the county remained the same at 5.8 percent.

Overall, Miami-Dade’s foreign born population reached a new record of 53% in 2017, compared to 51% in 2010.

This does not make it an international city. It’s just more Latin.
A cosmopolitan international city would have Asians, Arabs, Indians, Eastern Europeans, Western Europeans, and of course Latin Americans. Miami is just a very Latin city

Yes it is a very Latin City with people from all over central and South America. This is only discussing the largest volume of growth and did include Southeast Asian. There are also people here from though out Europe, Africa, Russia, India and Arab countries. What cities are you comparing Miami to in regards to international mix. London is an international city but does not have a large Latin population. Most of the mix there common from common wealth countries. New York has a mix but is in much smaller percentages across most foreign born populations.Same can be said for Toronto and San Francisco. What are you comparing to?

There is nothing international about having more Cubans, it’s just more of the same and I guess it that you have never been to NY because they do have a larger number of of foriegn born and its seen throughout the city which is not what you see in Miami. Miami….a jungle with tall buildings like Panama City!

European and Asian population has grown too but even if it was only Latin American that already makes it more international, to be international doesn’t have to be from everywhere it just has to be international

Well, in our defense, we certainly have more Europeans (tourists and residents) than most cities sans NYC or LA.¯\_(ツ)_/¯

According to globalists, a city is diverse if it’s majority not the native population of a country, go figure.

My own example: I came here with a business class ticket, sponsored by a company who is using my skills to make millions of dollars a year because I am of the top people in my field. Before I landed here permanently, I acquired a US$ 1.5 million dollar property without a mortgage. I truly believe I will be able to help the American economy thrive and to create more jobs.

I would say I am part of a new breed of immigrants who went to graduate school here in SMET, fortunate enough to contribute to expand American business around the world and who invest our rewards in a place we believe will continue to be the lasting longer democracy in the world.

The shooter in Texas and Ohio were both racists. The Ohio guy hates white people. The Texas guy hates Mexicans and all people. But they are both socialist radicals. Go read their manifesto. The media is hiding those facts.

Once you leave Miami Dade in other parts of U.S it’s rare to come across Cubans. Even in parts of northwest areas of Miami Dade. Compared to other large Hispanic communities like Puerto Ricans and Mexicans around the U.S, Cubans are still a very small group.

Once Trump is done rounding up all foreigners, I believe that these numbers will go down dramatically. The irony is that most of these foreigners support Trump while believing that they are white. Wake up to what’s happening my friends.

Facts are Facts. Trump has allowed more people to come into this country than Obama did in a given year. The problem people have is the separating of families at the border even though it’s a small amount of people it’s still worrisome to a lot of people.

Even though Obama did exactly the same, too. What I find worrisome, or rather concerning is these “assylum seekers” who aren’t happy enough being in Mexico using their children as sob stories while putting them at risk.
