The following is a snippet from the U.S. Census today:
“The [U.S.'s] foreign-born population numbered 34.2 million in 2004, accounting for 12 percent of the total U.S. population, according to U.S. Census Bureau data released today.”
Hmmm …. Am I the only one intrigued that the foreign-born population of the U.S. is almost exactly the same as the population of Canada, while everywhere you look in the U.S. there are Canadians? My theory: Maybe no-one actually lives in Canada, they just use it as a convenient passport mailing address for safe international travel.
