The United States is a land of opportunity, that is a renowned fact. Now that you have decided to migrate to the US, you need to choose which among the 50 states you want to plant your roots in. Your decision may be based on several factors: available job opportunities, schools for the children, ethnic community, and even the weather and seasons. You can even decide whether you want to live in a busy city or in a quiet town.  You can make a new home in the USA and build a career in the state that you choose. Talk to a competent immigration lawyer at Andres Mejer Law to find out your options. 

Below is a list of the best states where you can start making your American dream into a reality.


New Jersey – The Garden State

Nearly one in four New Jersey residents is an immigrant, while one in six residents is a native-born U.S. citizen with at least one immigrant parent. New Jersey has the fifth-highest immigrant population in the United States. Immigrants account for about 22.4% of the state’s total population.

New Jersey is committed to consulting, supporting, and collaborating with migrant organizations. There is equal access to information and services provided to immigrants. 



Maryland – The Old Line State

If the economy in terms of jobs attracts you most, then consider Maryland as the place to be. Even if you are just an immigrant here, finding a job is very easy.

Maryland is committed to increasing the population of immigrants that make up nearly 15% of the state’s population, thereby making them a big part of the workforce contributing billions of dollars in taxes. The jobs available to immigrants allow them to support both themselves and their families. 


Texas – The Lone Star State

There are around 4.7 million immigrants in Texas, which is why it is considered to have the second-largest population of immigrants in the United States.  

Texas has the second highest economy in the United States which is not a surprise because of its diversity– an advantage for immigrants. Texas immigrants have higher labor force participation rates and significantly lower unemployment rates than immigrants elsewhere in the country. As a result, immigrants tend to do relatively well in the labor market. 


New York – The Empire State

New York has been known for being the entry point for migrants coming to the US through Ellis Island. Today, the state has 4.54 million immigrants, 23.0% of its total population.

New York has built up strong policies that support migrants led by a government that makes it their mission to provide them with equal opportunities. Immigrants in New York enjoy legal assistance, mental healthcare, and citizenship information is accessible. 



California – The Golden State

With the largest numbers of immigrants living in the US, California is one of the best states to go with your dream card. The state has a total of 10.68 million foreign-born residents, accounting for 27.2% of its total population.

California is said to be the best place for immigrants to begin their American dream because you can apply for financial aid, your driver’s license, and can go to a state college with a low amount of tuition fees. There is also a lot of opportunities for employment. California is known for its cultural and ethnic diversity and is a great place for dreamers and entrepreneurs alike.
