For nearly one-third of Washingtonians, immigration is not just a political issue — it’s also personal.

That’s because in 2021, nearly 2.3 million Washington residents — 30% of the state’s population — were immigrants themselves, or had at least one parent who is an immigrant, according to new data from the Current Population Survey, a joint effort between the U.S. Census Bureau and the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
