    Isn’t the british premier a first generation descendant?

    Over here in Germany, one federal minister is of Turkish origin.

    The current president of Romania is part of a German minority.

    Granted, the examples all have a lower GDP than India and China overall, but those are three examples that come to mind without even googling.

      You’re right, and Germany is actually higher than India. I don’t recall why I worded my original post that way, I think I was thinking of countries tankies admire and which also have strong GDP.

      Regardless yes, you’re right that there are other strong GDP democracies besides the U.S. where immigrants can become politicians at the federal level.
