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.
