The Sacramento Bee just published a neat interactive map titled “Interactive: Sacramento’s newest citizens.”

It shows the country of origin for all 11,000 of the area’s residents who became naturalized United States citizens in 2008.

It’s a useful conversation starter in class, and is sort of local supplement to The New York Times’ interactive graphic,  the Immigration Explorer. It shows — by geography and time period — where immigrants from various countries have settled in the United States over the past 130 years.
