A bi-partisan group has created an interactive map showing the economic impact of immigrants in all 50 states.

The map comes from a study produced by the group New American Economy.

According to the study, in Cleveland, immigrants have over $3 billion in spending power and contribute over $1 billion in taxes.

It also finds that immigrants are 75% more likely to start businesses than native citizens.
