Immigration

New Americans drive economic prosperity

Immigrants give more than they take. It’s that simple. With this shared understanding, we can craft policies recognizing the importance of immigrants in our local economies. Working together to create an inclusive economy – one that gives all business owners equal access to resources, support, and opportunities – is the way forward.
