America Needs Immigrants, Report Confirms

     The Immigration Policy Center just issued a detailed state-by-state report analyzing the economic impact of immigrants.  Intelligent debate about immigration must include recognition of the following:
  • Immigrants, Latinos, and Asians account for large and growing shares of the U.S. economy and electorate. Overall, immigrants made up more than 12% of the U.S. population (or nearly 38 million people) in 2008, and more than 43% of them are naturalized U.S. citizens meaning they are eligible to vote. 
  • In 2008, Latinos and Asians accounted for nearly 20% of all Americans and wielded $1.5 trillion in consumer purchasing power. 
  • The businesses they own had sales and receipts of $549 billion and employed 3.7 million people at last count. 
     This last item is my personal favorite tying the need for immigrants directly with the American goal of improving our economy.
