Immigrants of the week : Rima Fakih and Erick de Leon

by Greg Siskind

IMMIGRANT OF THE DAY: RIMA FAKIH - MISS USA

 
Well I stand corrected. Last night I reported that Rima Fakih was born in the US to immigrant parents. That's what the one biography I could find that listed her birth place actually said. But a day is a long time in the news cycle and we know a lot more about America's newest sweetheart. She was, in fact, born in Lebanon and immigrated as a child.

The charming Rima is a graduate of the University of Michigan-Dearborn and is hoping to attend law school when her reign is over. Perhaps a career as an immigration lawyer?

IMMIGRANT OF THE DAY: ERICK DE LEON - BOXER

Congrats to Erick De Leon, the Mexican-born 2009 Golden Gloves champ who just naturalized and is now a contender to compete on the US Olympic boxing team next year in London.
