tends to settle in cities. Urbanisation has just passed the halfway mark worldwide and is only projected to rise.

This varies by city. Moreover, places don't remain segregated just because they started out that way. The neighbourhood just south of where I live is called "Andersonville" because it was historically a concentration point of Swedish settlement. Nowadays more Somalis live there than Swedes.
Not only have immigrants been moving out to the suburbs for as long as these have existed, they're increasingly skipping urban neighbourhoods altogether and settling there directly. Again, suburbanisation of immigrant populations in the USA has passed the 50% mark
and continues to rise:
Overall, three quarters (76 percent) of the growth in the foreign-born population between 2000 and 2013 in the largest metro areas occurred in the suburbs. In 53 metro areas, the suburbs accounted for more than half of immigrant growth, including nine metros in which all of the growth occurred in the suburbs: Chicago, Cleveland, Detroit, Grand Rapids, Jackson, Los Angeles, Ogden, Rochester, and Salt Lake City.

Not always the case. In fact, in several EU countries, it's precisely the opposite
. (See Figure 2. Compared to other EU countries, Sweden is actually the outlier in regards to the discrepancy between native-born and foreign-born employment rates. So, again, a terrible data point to make projections from.)

Citation, please? Eurostat puts it fifth among EU countries
, practically on a par with Austria and far, far behind Luxembourg. It's not even highest among Nordic countries, placing well behind both Norway and Iceland.

If you think that, then I think you need to go back to school. See if you can find a class on interpreting statistical data, and maybe study some sociology while you're at it.
