Economic and Fiscal Contributions of International Immigrants in the State of Kansas and [Missouri]
The Greater Kansas City Hispanic Development Fund along with other community partners released the study titled Economic and Fiscal Contributions of International Immigrants in the State of Kansas and [Missouri] lead by Dr. Eaton from the University of Missouri-Kansas City and assisted by Dr. Rosenbloom from the University of Kansas and Dr. Leatherman from Kansas State University. This thorough study describes the international immigrant’s impact on some of the main socio-economic aspects in Kansas and Missouri such as their economic contribution by industry sector and taxes, as well as the use of services like education, health care, and transportation. The study confirms that “immigrants are an integral part” of the states of Kansas and Missouri economy and reducing their participation in the labor market would have a negative effect on native employment income and the overall states’ fiscal position. Dr. Cupertino attended to the release of the study last week in representation of the Juntos Center for Advancing Latino Health.
