    The first chart depicts the difference between Poverty, Probability, and Statistics. It talks about these things and how they change between one generation and the next. The chart states that poverty is everywhere. It states the role poverty is having on people and their incomes. The rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer. It also presents the inequalities of wealth, and how their incomes affect them based upon where they live. The second chart depicts the differences among immigrants’ income in the U.S. It also bases it off where they came from, For example, The wealthiest race (from country of origin) appears to be China according to this table.

A growth in the number of immigrants is expected to rise by 20%. If such an event occurs, the idea that immigrants are in a sense, “stealing” American jobs would be evidently true.
