Immigration policy. We have a points system and we speak English. Lots of educated Asians have some knowledge of English and try to immigrate to developed English-speaking countries.

The US has uniform per-country limits. This means there is a cap that applies to how many immigrants can come from any country, and that cap is uniform regardless of the population of that country.

This means that Peru is subject to the same cap that India is, even though India has a greater population than the entire New World. Same with China. As a result, it's pretty challenging for Indians and Chinese to immigrate to the US. They then look to places like Canada, Australia and NZ.
