    A new study says Texas became home to more than 587,889 immigrants from 2010 to 2016 — the largest number of any state.

    The new analysis by the Center for Immigration Studies of recently released U.S. Census data finds that the nation's immigrant population (legal and illegal) hit a record 43.7 million in 2016. The data also show more than 16.6 million U.S.-born minor children with an immigrant parent.

    Immigrants and their young children now account for nearly one in five U.S. residents.


    Texas saw the largest number of new immigrants, up more than 14 percent over the 6-year period. In economic output, the immigrant community produces about $65 billion in Texas, the Center for Public Policy Priorities reported in 2014.


    Houston, in particular, has a large Hispanic population. In Harris County, 42 percent of the population — nearly 2 million people — is Hispanic, up 77 percent since 2000. Houston Hispanic consumers currently spend about $54 billion a year. But by 2022, it’s projected that Houston's Hispanic spending will grow to about $77 billion.


    “People have come to Houston because it has created a model of opportunity that is really seen nowhere else," Joel Kotkin, the executive director for the Center for Opportunity Urbanism, said in a speech at the Houston Hispanic Impact Summit on Sept. 14.


    Other states among the top 10 for immigrant growth included:

    • Florida – 578,468 individuals, 15.8 percent
    • California – 527,234 individuals, 5.2 percent
    • New York – 238,503 individuals, 5.5 percent
    • New Jersey – 171,504 individuals, 9.3 percent
    • Massachusetts – 140,318 individuals, 14.3 percent
    • Washington –134,132 individuals, 15.1 percent
    • Pennsylvania – 131,845 individuals, 17.8 percent
    • Virginia – 120,050 individuals, 13.2 percent
    • Maryland – 118,175 individuals, 14.7 percent

    The more immigrants from the countries we get the most from with little education or skills, the more the state will turn purple then blue. Democrats are delighted.
