More Chinese get green cards in 2011 than in 2010 – Caixin Online – MarketWatch
By Huang Chen
BEIJING ( Caixin Online ) — China sent 16,000 more immigrants to the United States in 2011 than in 2010, the U.S. government says.
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s latest yearbook, updated on April 15, 2012, said the country granted green cards to more than 1.06 million immigrants in 2011, and 87,000 of them were Chinese. The statistics were taken from U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services data.
Caixin is a Beijing-based media group dedicated to providing high-quality and authoritative financial and business news and information through periodicals, online and TV/video programs.
Mexico, China and India were still the top three countries in terms of the number of immigrants they sent to the U.S.
China’s increase in immigrants to the United States was the largest of all countries.
In 2011, Chinese accounted for 8.2% of the total number of the immigrants to the United States, an increase of 1.4 percentage points over 2010. China, Cuba and Vietnam were the only countries to see an increase in the number of immigrants to the U.S.
As always, the proportion of female immigrants was significantly higher than males. In 2011, there were 580,000 female migrants compared to 480,000 male migrants to the U.S. The number of skilled immigrants fell by 9,000, mainly because fewer workers with low-level skills moved.

The New Zealand government approved the sale of 16 dairy and drystock farms to Chinese developer Shanghai Pengxin Group. The WSJ’s Deborah Kan speaks with Andrew Critchlow about what the move means for New Zealand’s relationship with China.
People under age 24 accounted for one-third of immigrants, and the median age of the immigrants was 31.
Since 2001, 11.5 million immigrants have entered the U.S., and the number of immigrants has been controlled at about 1.1 million a year.
The U.S immigration service said 772 of 1,885 applications for investment immigration came from China in 2010. Investment immigration to the U.S. requires investable asset of more than 100 million yuan ($15.85 million).
The 2011 China Private Wealth Report, produced by consultancy Bain & Co., said the upper class in China was interested in moving abroad. About 27% of people with more than 100 million yuan to invest had completed immigration and 47% were considering moving abroad.
