Leno said, “New census data revealed this week, reports a drop in illegal immigration to America for the first time in over a decade.  Well, sure, now that we stopped making Twinkies nobody wants to come here anymore.

“Although, for the first time ever Asians are immigrating to this country much – immigrating to this country much more than any other minority group, Leno said.

“And they assimilate very quickly, you know, considering the fact that when they get here, most of them don’t even speak Spanish.  So that’s, you know, that’s pretty amazing.”
