Many Yemenis came to America to work in the automotive industry and because of this Michigan is home to a large percentage of the American, Yemeni population. A large number of first generation Yemenis came to America many years ago and have since retired and have had children that have gone on to be very successful in their chosen profession. Often times before a man would move his entire family to the United States he would come for a year or two to work then after he had saved the money and found a good place to settle he would bring the rest of the family with him.
