Immigrants Vital to California's Economy

From the Immigration Policy Center:

New Americans Vital to Golden State Economy:
California's Immigrants, Latinos, and Asians are a Political and Economic Powerhouse

Washington D.C.- California's $42 billion deficit has led to a lot of misplaced blame on the immigrant, Latino, and Asian communities that comprise the state's economic backbone.  Yet immigrant, Latino, and Asian workers and entrepreneurs are integral to rebuilding California's economy and tax base.  The state may be facing hard economic times, but the California dream is anything but over - immigrants and their families are part of the very engine that keeps California's future alive.

Today, the Immigration Policy Center released compiled research, a blog post, and a press release which show that immigrants, Latinos, and Asians are a political and economic powerhouse in the state of California and an electoral force with which all politicians must contend.  To learn more about the contribution of immigrants to the California economy read:
