Funders' Briefing on the Impact of Immigration Reform in the Southeast

Archive


As policymakers consider an overhaul of the country’s immigration system, the Southeast has a crucial stake in the outcomes of this debate. Southern states constitute the top-six states with the highest immigrant growth rate in the last decade, and three states rank among the top-ten states with the nation’s largest foreign-born population. Home to 7.4 million immigrants, the Southeast has the fastest growing foreign-born population in the United States.

This striking demographic shift—combined with the dynamic immigration policy debate in the halls of Congress—has important economic, civic, and social implications for the region. It also creates a timely opportunity for philanthropy to consider how best to integrate newcomers and improve the region’s overall well-being.
