State Specifics on the Benefits of Immigration

This week the Immigration Policy Center released 50 state-specific infographics and accompanying fact sheets that highlight recent demographic trends and summarize the economic benefits of immigration for each state. The study concluded that more than one-third of immigrants in the United States are naturalized citizens and eligible to vote. These individuals, who together with the children of immigrant parents are being called the “New Americans,” currently represent one in ten registered voters nationwide. In the State of Texas, the Latino and Asian communities together account for approximately 265 billion dollars in consumer purchasing power and more than 1 in 4 current residents. To see how Texas compares to the national economy or for other state-specific reports, visit the Immigration Policy Center’s main webpage.
