Wheaton — An Immigration Snapshot
Interim Constituencies Program Director
March 12, 2015
Wheaton, and the greater Chicago area, is transforming. In 2013, 11% of Wheaton residents were immigrants, while that number was 17% in Chicago
70% of these immigrants are in the Chicagoland labor force, and more than 70% of them have at least a high school diploma.
So, while Congress debates the future of immigration reform, we’re looking to communities like Chicago and Wheaton that have the opportunity to address immigration and forge a major impact on the local political environment, schools system, public services, and economic prosperity.
