They're taking our money. They're killing us". A new analysis of household earning power has actually revealed that U.S.-born citizens are outearning immigrants in 45 states, often to the tune of thousands of dollars.

The analysis, conducted by Nerdwallet, found that Wyoming topped the list. In that state, a household led by someone born in the U.S. would have a median annual income of $59,689 compared to just $40,145 for a household headed by an immigrant.

The five states that buck the trend and see immigrant households outearning U.S.-born households are Delaware, Michigan, Mississippi, West Virginia and Virginia.

This chart shows the median annual household income gap between U.S. born people & immigrants.
