Montgomery County, Maryland has a wonderfully rich and diverse community that is supported by a growing proportion of ethnic residents, many of whom are foreign-born. In fact, nearly 30% of County residents were born outside of the United States. The County has a strong and growing representation of Asian Americans, Continental Africans, Latin Americans, and African Americans. The diversity within these groups is tremendous.
