Summary

The future of Texas is inextricably linked to the immigrants and refugees who call the state home. One in three children in Texas—most of whom are U.S. citizens—has a foreign-born parent, and the state’s foreign-born population is growing six times faster than that of U.S.-born. Whether immigrants and refugees are able to reach their full potential will go a long way to determining Texas’ long-term vitality. This new report from Grantmakers Concerned with Immigrants and Refugees explores these changing demographics, and the role philanthropy can play to support integration and ensure the future prosperity of all Texans.
