immigration Factoids About U.S. Presidents

"Only one president was the son of two immigrant parents: Andrew Jackson. Five presidents ([Thomas] Jefferson, James Buchanan, Chester Arthur, Woodrow Wilson, Herbert Hoover) had just one immigrant parent each."

As you know, I tend to be favorably disposed toward immigrants but, with the possible exception of Jefferson, I must concede that I am not really all that impressed with the president/children of immigrants.
