Default Local USIMG

So I was just wanted to ask anyone familiar with the match: Do residency programs prefer local applicants even if they are IMGs? For example, do residency programs in New Jersey prefer IMGs from New Jersey? Whenever I visit a program's website, I see alot of the current residents are from the area. I'm not sure if this is because that's where they apply or if that's where they get the most interviews.

Any help is greatly appreciated.
