Fort Worth Business Press | Impact of Immigration
Although it remains a hotly contested political issue, immigration is a boon to the North Texas economy and the business community prospers from it.
That’s according to a new report by the New American Economy, a bipartisan research organization.</p>
The report found the region’s immigrant households – made up of 1.38 million individuals – earned about $43.8 billion in 2017. Immigrants paid $7.3 billion in federal taxes and $3.2 billion state and local taxes, the report said.
