Houston — An Immigration Snapshot
Director of Integration Programs
February 25, 2015
With 1,423,721 immigrants living in its metropolitan area, Houston is one the fastest growing cities in the nation.
These folks comprise 29% of the labor force, account for 31% of all businesses, and represent a significant portion of high school students graduating from our schools.
So, while Congress debates the future of immigration reform, we’re looking to communities like Houston that have the opportunity to address immigration and forge a major impact on the local political environment, schools system, public services, and economic prosperity.
Check out our snapshot of immigrants in Houston, then sign up to help us build an immigration agenda that will help Houston immigrants attain the opportunities, skills, and status they need to help our city reach its fullest potential.
