Census data shows citizenship premium

Census tables from newly-released data from the 2018 Current Population Survey offer a view of immigrants' education levels, wealth and jobs. A key finding: citizenship narrows economic gaps. As the NY Times reports, "Immigrants who weren't citizens had higher rates of poverty, lower income and less education compared with native-born citizens last year. But immigrants who were citizens had less poverty, close to equal earnings and higher rates of advanced degrees than native U.S. citizens."
