Immigration, and how to handle it, continues to be a contentious topic in the United States in 2019. Currently, much of the debate revolves around border security and President Trump’s proposed wall. A partisan disagreement over funding for said wall is a big factor in the partial government shutdown that lasted from the end of 2018 into 2019 – the longest in history. But political differences aside, there’s no question that immigration as a whole affects the economy.

In light of recent developments in U.S. immigration policy, WalletHub compared the economic impact of foreign-born populations on the 50 states and the District of Columbia.
