Houston Home to Many Skilled Immigrants

Houston, TX (Law Firm Newswire) August 1, 2011 - Houston is a city with many immigrants from diverse countries and cultures. The latest Census data shows that more than 1.27 million immigrants call Houston home. And more than 22 percent of them are highly skilled and at least have a bachelor’s degree. The Brookings Institution Metropolitan Policy Program recently published “The Geography of Immigrant Skills: Educational Profiles of Metropolitan Areas” report. It noted that many of Houston’s immigrants over the age of 25 years old are highly skilled.

“Houston is a city with some of the finest universities, science and high tech jobs, and work opportunities,” said Houston immigration attorney Annie Banerjee. “You can tell that the diversity contributes to making the city a better place to live and work.”

Houston also scored high as one of the best places for young workers. In the American City Business Journals latest study, Houston ranked number two for job opportunities. Houston offers good employment growth and income, modest rents and lower unemployment when compared to 65 other U.S. cities.
