New Report Details Huge Contribution Immigrants Are Making To America

Andy J. Semotiuk


I write about investor immigration and about Immigration issues.

In an extraordinary achievement related to documenting the contribution of immigrants to American life, the American Immigration Council, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping immigrants coming to the United States, just published an interactive map providing deep analysis and data about immigrants in the country.

The Council’s 2023 Map, showcases the contributions of immigrants in the country, all 50 states, and industry sectors across the economy. It also features hundreds of stories and videos from local leaders talking about why immigration matters to them.

Some key findings from the Council’s report include:


  • 1 in 8 U.S. residents is an immigrant.

  • Immigrants paid over $500 billion in taxes in 2021.

  • 22% of all U.S. entrepreneurs are immigrants.
