About the Middle Eastern Community in Metro Detroit
The Greater Detroit area has one of the largest settlements of Middle Eastern people including Jews, Chaldo-Assyrians and Arabs in the United States. As of 2007, it is believed about 300,000 people in Southeastern Michigan traced their descent from the Middle East. Dearborn's sizable Arab community consists largely of Lebanese and of more recent Yemenis and Iraqis. Meanwhile, many Assyrian/Chaldean/Syriac who immigrated for jobs in the auto industry in the 1920s, reside in Oakland and Macomb counties. In 2010, the four Metro Detroit counties had estimated 300,000 people of Middle Eastern origin, excluding Jews. From 1990 to 2000 the percentage of people speaking Arabic in the home increased by 106% in Wayne County, 99.5% in Macomb County and 41% in Oakland County.
Middle Eastern people have called Metro Detroit home since the start of the 20th Century. More than 33,000 copies distributed in the Metropolitan Detroit Tri-county area
