"Immigrants, Latinos and Asians account for large and growing shares of the economy and the electorate in New York. Immigrants (the foreign-born) account for more than 1 in 5 New Yorkers" and more than half of them are U.S. citizens eligible to vote. "New American" immigrants and the children of immigrants account for 17.5% of all registered voters in the state. Latinos and Asians (both foreign-born and native-born) account for one quarter of New Yorkers and wield $148.5 billion in consumer purchasing power. At last count, the sales and receipts of businesses owned by Latinos and Asians totaled more than $68.7 billion and employed more than 310,000 people. New York's immigrants are responsible for $229 billion in economic output. Not only is New York one of the most ethnically diverse states in the nation, but it is also a historic gateway for immigrants from virtually every part of the world. Immigrants, Latinos, and Asians are a political and economic powerhouse in New York." - Immigration Policy Center
