The Political and Economic Power of Immigrants, Latinos, and Asians in the Empire State

Jun 2, 2013

"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
