Any group in the US with the following qualities will do very well.

1. Strong family unit.
2. Value education.
3. Work hard.
4. Entrepreneurial spirit

Immigrant groups need one more quality

5. Willingness to sacrifice for their children.

When I see what the Asians (especially the Koreans) have done in this
country in the past 40 years I have to conclude that there is no
excuse for failure.
