The U.S. should be welcoming, and not demonizing, immigrants if it seeks job and economic growth, based on a new study about entrepreneurialism.
A report from the Partnership for a New American Economy says immigrants are more than twice as likely as native-born Americans to start a business. Last year, immigrant entrepreneurs founded 28% of all new U.S. businesses, even though immigrants only make up 12.9% of the population.
