NONCITIZEN RESIDENTS CONTRIBUTE $18.2 BILLION IN NY STATE INCOME TAXES

Not only do noncitizen residents pay billions in state income taxes, we are responsible for $229 billion in economic output in New York State: that’s over one-fifth of the state’s total GDP. We live here, we send our children to school here, we contribute to every aspect of the economic, cultural and social life of this city, yet we cannot vote in decisions that affect our daily lives.
