Immigrants Continue Leading Small Business Growth

Here’s a great piece in the Wall Street Journal titled, “Migrants Keep Small-Business Faith“. Here’s a quote that sets the tone of the article:

Immigrants accounted for 18% of the country’s 4.9 million small-business owners in 2010, a six-percentage-point increase from two decades earlier, according to analysis of census data by the nonpartisan Fiscal Policy Institute. Immigrants, who represent 13% of the population, accounted for a third of the increase in the number of small-business owners between 1990 and 2010.
