Texas has relied on a large and sustained influx of workers from other states and other countries. These transplants—making up nearly half of the state’s workforce—account for an even larger share of Texas’ growth than their relative numbers. Significantly, this inflow brought the types of workers most in demand. Changes to immigration policy and slowing immigration can disrupt what’s been a key factor sustaining Texas’ growth premium.
