New research from New American Economy underscores the crucial role immigrants in Los Angeles play as essential workers, economic contributors, and business owners.

It also features profiles of two Los Angeles residents: Lizbeth Garcia and Emanel Noreza. The report was produced as part of NAE's and Welcoming America's Gateways for Growth Challenge, which includes tailored research on the local immigrant population and/or technical assistance in the creation of a multi-sector strategic immigrant integration plan.
