Infographic: New Americans in Maine

Check out this fact-packed infographic produced by the Immigration Policy Center about the foreign-born population in Maine. My favorite stats:

  • 3.4% of Mainers are foreign born
  • 56.6% of immigrants in the state are eligible to vote
  • Immigrants are 2.8% of the state’s workforce
  • 83.1% of children with immigrant parents are proficient in English
