Comment: Rural Immigration
Center for Rural Strategy has released a study that shows the positive impact of immigration on rural areas.
Rural counties with more immigrants also tend to be performing better economically. Rural America's foreign-born residents may be moving to counties that have more jobs, but immigrants also create more economic opportunity when they get there, economists say. Roberto Gallardo, Ph.D., the author of the study, looked at the percentage of a rural county's population that was born beyond U.S. borders and correlated that information with some basic economic data. He found that, in general, as the proportion of the immigrant population grows in rural areas, positive economic indicators like per capita market income rise, as well. And negative economic indicators like the rate of poverty and unemployment go down.
Rural America is plagued by serious loss of population, and these communities are being saved by the influx of immigrants.
