Nearly 500K undocumented kids have come to America since October. Here’s where 30K have ended up

 Nearly 30,000 immigrant children have been placed within a multitude of U.S. states, though the majority of those children landed in California, Virginia, Texas, Florida and New York. Sponsors or relatives are stepping in for overwhelmed immigration authorities, who have an “urgent humanitarian crisis” on their hands, according to President Obama.
Unless they can be released into the care of a sponsor, parent or relative, these kids stay in government-run shelters.

Nepali and Tibetan Immigrants Thrive in the Union Square Greenmarket

The Greenmarket was founded in 1976 to promote locally grown products directly to New York consumers hungry for fresh, high quality produce. Four days a week (Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday) there are dozens of stalls selling a wide variety of fruits, vegetables, meat, fish and baked goods. 

About five percent of the salespeople are Nepali and Tibetan and the number is rising because of a tight-knit community network and mouth-to-mouth publicity.
