American Immigration Council publishes fact sheet on immigration in New Jersey


New Jersey has a large community of immigrants, many of whom hail from India. Nearly one-quarter of the state’s population was born in another country, while one in six residents is a native-born U.S. citizen with at least one immigrant parent. Foreign-born residents are vital to New Jersey’s workforce across sectors. For example, immigrants account for over two-fifths of all healthcare support workers, nearly half of all workers in computer and math sciences, and half of production employees. As neighbors, business owners, taxpayers, and workers, immigrants are an integral part of New Jersey’s diverse and thriving communities and make extensive contributions that benefit all.
