Immigrant(-less)Burgh

Lots of discussion of Pittsburgh in comparision to two other regions: Oakland and Minneapolis and the impact of immigration in this paper: IMMIGRANTS AS URBAN SAVIORS: WHEN IMMIGRANTS REVIVE A CITY AND WHEN THEY DON’T: LESSONS FROM THE UNITED STATES by Gregg Zachary. I will have to add this to the reference list I give out for the weekly question I get about why Pittsburgh has so few international immigrants.

Pittsburgh has so few immigrants because the Krauts, Micks, Pollocks, Hunkys, I-ties, WASPs, and Yidds don't want them in their neighborhoods.
