Study: Immigrants paid more than $9 billion in federal taxes, $3.5 billion in state and local taxes in 2016 in Houston alone

Meantime, research from the Center for Houston’s Future projects that “57 percent of the region’s jobs created from 2016 to 2036 will be filled by foreign-born workers”

HOUSTON – Mayor Sylvester Turner on Thursday told a group of business leaders and others gathered at Rice University that he’s proud to lead a city that’s fighting the Texas Legislature’s crackdown on undocumented immigrants under last session’s Senate Bill 4.

“Houston always has been and will always be a welcoming place,” Turner said at a summit called “The Future of Immigration in Houston” hosted by the Mexico Center at the Baker Institute, the New American Economy – founded by Michael Bloomberg and Rupert Murdoch – and the Center for Houston’s Future.
