Immigrant Entrepreneurs, Innovation, and Welcoming Initiatives in the States

For Immediate Release

July 24, 1013
Washington D.C. - Today, the Immigration Policy Center releases ten new state fact sheets and accompanying infographics, highlighting the contributions of immigrant entrepreneurs and innovators in each state’s economy. 
Immigrant entrepreneurs add revenue and create jobs. Highly skilled immigrants are vital to the innovation economy and to the growth of metropolitan areas. Furthermore, local government, business, and non-profit leaders recognize the importance of immigrants in their communities and support immigration through local “welcoming” and integration initiatives.
