In light of the recent immigration executive orders that have been put in place by Donald Trump many questions have arrived about immigrants and the type of production that they may provide to the U.S. economy. This presents an interesting question that should be answered: does the percentage of foreign born immigrants within a Michigan county increase economic growth/activity overall? Many people seem to hold the belief that they do not provide a significant amount of production and in fact they seem to have a negative effect upon the economic activity and growth of the United States. Hopefully, through this study, the revelation that the percentage of foreign born immigrants will positively correlate with an increase in economic growth overall.
