What Immigration Means to Oregon (Infographic)
Oregon has a sizeable community of immigrants, many of whom hail from Mexico. Roughly 10 percent of all Oregon residents are foreign-born, while over 12 percent are native-born Americans who have at least one immigrant parent. More than a third of Oregon’s farmers, fishers, and foresters are immigrants, as are nearly 23 percent of all production employees. As workers, business owners, taxpayers, and neighbors, immigrants are an integral part of Oregon’s diverse and thriving communities and make extensive contributions that benefit all.
