What countries’ immigrants have an easier time with getting a green card?
I heard that Chinese and Indians take a while longer. How about the Baltic countries’ immigrants?

The lines that you must wait in to get a green card are longer in China, India, Philippines, and Mexico. All other countries have shorter lines.
It isn't easier or harder. There are just more people in line ahead of you in some countries.

Depends entirely on qualifications to begin with. For those immigrants sponsored by parents, siblings, etc., the longest waits are for citizens of Philippines & Mexico since they have the biggest backlogs of applications. E.g. sibling petitions can take 25 years to become current so the prospective immigrant gets a visa interview in their country.
Those from countries with very high fraud rates (& China & India are becoming renowned for visa/immigration fraud, with Indian fraud rates growing at some of the world's fastest rates) will have difficulties as investigations will be more thorough & time-consuming.

Unless the home country is slow in responding to document verification nation of origin is only employed for sponsorship categories like siblings. So this kind of depends on who's sponsoring the green card. Spousal sponsorships tend to be more pro forma and there generally isn't a huge delay unless USCIS has trouble confirming the documents provided.

Definitely not Africans because Amerikkka won't let them in. Amerikkka needs to let in at least 500 million.

It depends on how you are trying to obtain your green card.
If you're trying to obtain it, say, through marriage to a US citizen, it doesn't matter what country you are from.
If you're trying to obtain one through a sibling relationship to a US citizen, then some countries have longer wait times than others. Not easier or harder, just takes longer for some countries.

Judging by the number of Indians working in NYC, I would say that Indians working in the tech sector have the easiest time. They are wonderful immigrants by the way, hard working and integrate very well.

Richer countries that have fewer Muslims.
