His point was stated incorrectly, but the basic point of what he was trying to articulate is inarguably true. The United States remains a country that many people around the world aspire to live in. It's perhaps the country that attracts the most emigrates from eclectic cultures in the world (by that I mean not just people pouring into the country from a neighboring country), and I think that population diversity, along with the country's wealth, political orientation and relative stability makes it very attractive to potential athletes (and people of other vocations) the world around.

Of course it's absurd to state literally that every person in the world wishes to live here, but I'm pretty sure that poster merely stated his view on the subject inartfully. At least I think that's the case.
