In November 2014, millions of Americans and their families watched and rejoiced together as President Barack Obama announced a series of immigration directives to strengthen border security, focus immigration enforcement on serious threats, and temporarily defer the deportations of 5 million eligible undocumented immigrants. Six months later, DAPA and the DACA expansion remains on hold, embroiled in a legal battle in the federal courts filed by states that are undermining their own fiscal interests.

A recent CAP report, “Assessing the Economic Impacts of Granting Deferred Action Through DACA and DAPA,” estimated that the deferred action programs—DACA, DAPA, and expanded DACA—will grow the U.S. economy cumulatively by $230 billion over 10 years. The analysis in this interactive takes that methodology a step further, showing the impact that the three deferred action programs will have on state gross domestic product, gains in income, and creation of jobs over 10 years, in 37 states and Washington D.C.
