With 2,249,790 immigrants living in its metropolitan area, Miami is one of our greatest immigrant cities.

Immigrants comprise 65.4% of the labor force, and more than 50% of them have at least a high school education.

So, while Congress debates the future of immigration reform, we’re looking to communities like Miami 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 on immigrants in Miami, then sign up to help us build an immigration agenda that will help Miami immigrants attain the opportunities, skills, and status they need to help our city reach its fullest potential.
