Between 1990 and 2013, the foreign-born population in Orlando has grown from 6.7% of the total population to 14.2%.

63.3% of Orlando’s immigrants participate in the labor force and over 78% hold at least a high school diploma.

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