Immigrants among essential workforces

Immigrants make up an estimated 17% of the overall U.S. workforce. But many essential service employees are immigrants, at a much higher rate in some occupations. More than a third of California nurses are immigrants, as well as 29% of nurses in New York and New Jersey.  One-third of delivery workers in New York are unauthorized immigrants, per the New American Economy.
