Immigrant Entrepreneurs Help Grow Kentucky Economy
As the report shows, immigrants make important contributions to the Kentucky and American economy--including by bringing entrepreneurial ideas and initiative and providing much-needed employment.
“In some communities, we see a political climate that creates a hostile environment for immigrants,” said Frank Mauro, executive director of the Fiscal Policy Institute. “This report shows that, as a country, we can’t go down that path. With immigrants making up one in six of all small business owners, a climate that is hostile to immigrants is also a climate that is bad for business.”
