New York is in many ways a city of immigrants. The Mayor’s office says the group makes up more than 40 percent of New York’s population. The Americas Society/Council of the Americas, or AS/COA, is a group that explores issues affecting the Americas. It supported a recent study about how immigrants affect New York City’s economy. The study looked at immigration records and neighborhood police reports between 1990 and 2010. The report’s author, Jacob Vigdor, says New York City’s economy and the quality of life improved during that period. He says immigrants move into aging, troubled neighborhoods because housing is less costly. Then, he says, the new residents improve the area. He says, in turn, crime rates drop. Robert Sampson is a social policy professor at Harvard University. He says immigrants who take risks to get to America are less likely to take part in crime and more likely to work hard. Immigrant businesses also help to drive growth in New York. AS/COA’s Kate Brick says immigrants are more willing to accept lower paying, less desirable jobs than non-immigrants. Jacob Vigdor says all immigrants help support the economy in some way by paying sales tax and property taxes. AS/COA hopes the report will influence other U.S. cities to welcome immigrants in ways that help everyone.
