Immigration and refugees are always a hot topic in Idaho, so I'll let you talk among yourselves on your personal feelings on the subjects. WalletHub has done the work in finding the latest statistics on the benefit of immigration in each state and found that it really isn't that great for Idaho. That doesn't mean it needs to end or that it is a bad thing, but it does mean that other states are seeing more of an economic impact due to immigration than we are in Idaho.

Idaho is ranked at number 47 in the nation getting only 19 points out of 100 using the WalletHub methodology of Immigrant Workforce, Socioeconomic Contribution, Innovators, and International Students.

The interactive map above lets you see how each state is impacted and also WalletHub has more on their findings.
