What Immigration Means to Delaware (Infographic)
Delaware has a sizable immigrant community, much of which hails from Mexico. Roughly 9 percent of the state’s population was born in another country, while 7 percent of residents are native-born U.S. citizens with at least one immigrant parent. Delaware benefits from the various ways immigrants participate in the economy and labor force, with foreign-born residents accounting for a fifth of the state’s architecture and engineering employees and 18 percent of residents working in Delaware’s insurance and finance industry. As workers, business owners, taxpayers, and neighbors, immigrants are an integral part of Delaware’s diverse and thriving communities and make extensive contributions that benefit all.
