Immigrants in the Workforce, State by State and Industry By Industry

A new interactive tool from The Pew Charitable Trusts compares immigrant labor force to U.S-born workers.

Milagros Rodriguez, who is originally from the Dominican Republic, works with a customer at her salon, the Woodside Beauty Salon, in the Queens borough of New York. According to a report released Thursday by the Fiscal Policy Institute, 18 percent of small business owners in the U.S. are immigrants. That's an increase from 1990, when immigrants made up 12 percent of small business owners.
