A Proud Member of Arizona’s Immigrant Community

This land we call Phoenix was inhabited by Native nations for centuries, including the O'odham Jewed, Akimel O'odham (Upper Pima), and Hohokam. All of us, except members of these Native nations and descendants of formerly enslaved people, are immigrants—whether we arrived days, years, or decades ago.

Our immigrant community is vast

Arizona’s immigrant community is bigger, brighter, and stronger than many people realize.


There are 275,000 undocumented immigrants in Phoenix alone.*

1 in 8

1 in 8 Arizona residents migrated from another country.

1 in 6

1 in 6 is a native-born U.S. citizen with at least one immigrant parent.

Immigrants are our friends, neighbors, colleagues, family members, and selves.
