New Americans as economic drivers for prosperity

Immigrants give more than they take. It’s from that simple starting point that we can craft policies that recognize the importance of immigrants on our local economies. How San Diego leads and coordinates immigration policies across its cities matter since all are directly affected by them. Across San Diego County, the economic impact of immigrants in San Diego is undeniable: almost $17 billion in spending power, over $6 billion in taxes paid, and over 65,000 entrepreneurs. Working together to create an inclusive economy is the way forward.
