New Report on Immigrants in Rhode Island

We're excited to share Partnership for a New American Economy's release of new research on the Contributions of New Americans.

This state by state report, including data on the foreign-born population in Rhode Island, their tax contributions, their spending power, and their role in Rhode Island’s key industries as leaders and job creators.

The Partnership for a New American Economy brings together more than 500 Republican, Democratic and Independent mayors and business leaders who support immigration reforms that will help create jobs for Americans today. The Partnership’s members include mayors of more than 35 million people nationwide and business leaders of companies that generate more than $1.5 trillion and employ more than 4 million people across all sectors of the economy.
