The Polish-born population in Chicago has plummetted in the past few years. I've heard numbers ranging from 50,000 to 150,000. Does anyone have a source for numbers? Chicagoland remains home to thousands of residents born in Poland but the numbers are certainly down.

Most just moved to the suburbs, not back to Poland.
I just found data from 2005 that there are 800 thousand people of Polish descent in metro Chicago area. " W Chicago mieszka około 800.000 osób polskiego pochodzenia. Według amerykańskich danych oficjalnych, w 2005 r. liczba Polaków w Chicago i okolicach, którym wydano zezwolenie na stały pobyt, spadła o 5,3 proc. w porównaniu do 2004 r. i wyniosła 5,6 tys.

How the mighty of the Windy City have fallen! Once the Poles dominated the old Meat Packing District (made famous in Upton Sinclair's novel "The Jungle"!), her most famous muckracker Mr. Art Royko etc... Poles were to Chicago what the Italians were to New York and the Irish to Bean Town (Boston).

Mexicans outnumber Poles now, there's over a million in the metro area.

Real Poles choose to live in Poland.

I ruefully repeat, PennBoy, "How the mighty have fallen!"-:))

Are migrant workers in Poland any less "real" than so-called "native" Poles? I detect here a double standard. If the immigrants in question were, say, Swedes, Germans or Brits, would the resentment be as significant??

I'm including the suburbs in my question, hence use of the term Chicagoland in the thread. My interest is in the number of Poles that returned to Poland.

Your research may also take you to a similar phenomenon happening for a while in my area of Greenpoint, Brooklyn. As Poland has begun to do better economically, more and more younger Poles are pulling up stakes and moving back to the Motherland-:)

Untrue. Real Poles will be Poles wherever they are.

f stop you're wasting your time trying to convince a nimwit who's obviously very jealous of not living in this glorious country.

I understand what he means, and I don't want to get personal here, but passport, lineage, living in Poland might technically make you Polish, but (and this is going to sound corny) if you talking about being a "real" Pole, it's got to be what's in your heart.

Noble words, fstop. Do you regret not passing that on to your son?

Not at all. I'd like my legacy to be that he becomes a "real" citizen of the world.

The Polish-born population in Chicago has plummetted in the past few years.

And it is only getting worse every year.
Watch this short video to help you understand why Chicago is the armpit of America.

A Polish person or any person would have to be very desperate to live there.

You may want to do a little more research on that.
Watch that video and you will get a better grasp of why the smart Poles are leaving .

There is always work in Chicago, a union town with high wages. I know many successful Polish contractors and businessmen. The Polish neighbors are shrinking and moving to the burbs, more opportunities, less blacks, equals lower crime.

You may want to do a little more research on that.

So, should you! I doubt your chicken ass has ever been here before.

You are right. We don't leave. We disperse.

"I doubt" are the key words there. lol
I do know that I have no reason to ever go back to that dysfunctional toxic chitpit.

We don't leave. We disperse.

Yes, they call it "Urban Sprawl" where the White Trash from the cities start taking over the beautiful suburbs forcing those people to move up here to God's country in Northern Michigan.

God's country in Northern Michigan.

Northern Wisconsin is much nicer!

Less backwards hillbillies as well:)

Your lack of knowledge about chicago is hysterical...lol

The video's of that toxic environment, that you call home, is lying too I suppose. lol

Northern Wisconsin is much nicer!

Then that is where we would like your trash to go instead of coming to Northern Michigan to ruin it.
See you crossing the border into Michigan is the same to us as the scum crossing the Mexican border but you are too dumb to get that.

You wouldn't fit in anyways as it is mostly Christians that live here and we intend to keep it that way. :-)
