I wonder if immigration from Europe will increase due to poor economy there.

It is hard for me to access how bad Europe’s economy is but it is quiet often framed in a fairly negative light in the US media. For example 14% unemployment in France which is trending even higher levels of unemployment or I hear of mass demonstrations in Spain from all strata of society protesting austerity measures.

My personal experience is talking to a German businessman in my cab who told me there is already a brain drain in Spain of educated Spaniards showing up in Berlin, and I have met a group of 3 Spanish people in there late 20’s  who were educated and working in the information economy in San Francisco.
