The wide range of languages spoken in DLLs’ households reflects the considerable diversity within this population and is an important consideration for efforts by early childhood education and care (ECEC) programs to reach and effectively serve these young children.

About 2.1 million immigrants work in jobs growing, harvesting, processing, and selling food in the United States, serving an essential role in feeding America. While immigrants accounted for 17 percent of all civilian employed workers in the United States between 2017-2021, they played an outsized role in food production, making up 21 percent of workers in the U.S. food supply chain. They represent far larger shares in certain food-related occupations, and in particular states, as this infographic shows.

While 1.5 million immigrants and refugees are already working in the U.S. health-care system, an additional 263,000 immigrants and refugees in the U.S. with health-related college degrees are working in low-skilled jobs or are out of work.
