Most commonly spoken languages (besides english)by state

I would have guessed that tagalog would dominate in Washington as there are so many Filipinos there, but it seems that the Vietnamese are more populated there than Filipinos.

In Michigan, Arabic clocks in as the third most commonly spoken language.

In Minnesota, it's Hmong.

In Oregon, it's Russian.

It's Vietnamese in four states – Texas, Oklahoma, Nebraska and Washington.

It's a Filipino language called Tagalog in Hawaii, California, and Nevada.

In four states, its Native American languages.

It's French in 11 states.

And in 16 states, it's German.

Fascinating data mining, but the term "melting pot" is a misnomer; immigrants today, more than ever, insist on retaining their culture, language and allegiance to their countries of origin rather than assimilate and adopt wholeheartedly into American culture.

Not "Melting Pot", but more like "Tossed Salad."
