    SEATTLE, Washington (AP)

    The Seattle Sounders are adding Seahawks quarter-back Russell Wilson and wife Ciara, hip-hop artist Macklemore and Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella to the MLS club’s ownership group.

    Other investors are also coming aboard while current majority owner Adrian Hanauer is increasing his investment stake in the club. Holly- wood producer Joe Roth, who helped bring the MLS to Seattle, is leaving the franchise.

    Wilson has been attempting to get into sports ownership. He was previ- ously a partner in an effort to build a new basketball arena in Seattle and has also been part of the project in Portland, Oregon, to build a baseball stadium in the hopes of luring an MLB team to the city.

    “When I got here in 2012, Seattle was a place that I felt I could call home forever.

    And obviously because of the Seahawks, and now because of the Sounders, it

    makes that really come to life,” Wilson said in a statement. “We’re really excited about building that winning culture. This city is a special place. The Pacific North- west is a place we love and we get to raise our kids here and have a lot of fun while doing it.”

    While the addition of Wilson and Macklemore will grab attention, other new additions to the ownership group have deep ties to Microsoft. Nadella is the most notable, but former Microsoft exec- utive Terry Myerson and his wife, Katie, are the leaders of the new investment group.

    “He quickly put together this rock star, literally and figuratively, group of owners and I had known several of them over time and met some new ones, and I guess it was humbling to know how much passion there was, how much connection there was to the club that we all have built together,” Hanauer said. “People were enthusiastic for all the right reasons.”

    In a lengthy post on social media , Myerson described the process of starting to bring new investors together more than a year ago. Pulling together 11 families and finalizing the purchase took longer than anyone expected.

    “What motivated so many of us to come together was to make sure the Sounders were owned here in Seattle for our kids and for our community,” Myerson said.

    ORLANDO, Florida (AP)

    Foreign-born residents had higher rates of full-time employment than those born in the United States last year, and naturalized immi- grants were more likely to have advanced degrees than the native-born, according to figures released Monday by the U.S. Census Bureau.

    The new figures show that the eco- nomic gap between the native-born and the foreign-born in the United States appears to narrow with citizenship.

    Immigrants who weren’t citizens had higher rates of poverty, lower income and less education compared with native- born citizens last year. But immigrants who were citizens had less poverty, close to equal earnings and higher rates of advanced degrees than native U.S. citi- zens.

    “Usually immigrants start off in the U.S. lagging behind a bit in terms of income, as they need to find the right job, learn local skills and so on and then catch up,” said Giovanni Peri, an economist at the Uni-

    versity of California, Davis. “Immigrants also are very different among each other, and those naturalized may be a selection of those more educated and with better jobs.”

    Naturalized immigrants had a fulltime employment rate of about 83 percent last year, noncitizens had about 81 percent and native citizens had 77 percent.

    “Some immigrant groups have to be employed to stay in this country — those on work visas, which would raise the proportion,” said Stefan Rayer, a demographer at the Uni- versity of Florida.

    The 2018 Current Population Survey figures offer a view of immigrants’ edu- cation levels, wealth and jobs as the U.S. engages in one of the fiercest debates about the role of immigration in decades.

    Stopping the flow of immigrants into the U.S. has been a priority of President

    Donald Trump’s administration, which has proposed denying green cards to immigrants who use Medicaid and fought to put a citizenship question on the decen- nial census questionnaire.

    Monday’s figures also look at differ- ences between naturalized immigrants and those who aren’t citizens. In 2018, the U.S. had 45.4 million foreign-born resi- dents, or about 1 in 7 U.S. residents.

    Education appears to play a role in narrowing the income gap between the native-born and the foreign-born.

    Overall, naturalized immi- grants had a slightly smaller median income than the native- born — $50,786 compared with $51,547 — but nonciti- zen immigrants trailed them both with a median income of $36,449.

    But naturalized immigrants with a college degree surpassed college-educated natives’ income, and both naturalized immigrants and noncitizens with advanced degrees had

    higher median incomes than U.S. natives with advanced degrees.

    Immigrants, both naturalized and non- citizens, were overwhelmingly urban and suburban dwellers. Less than 1 in 20 immigrants lived outside of a metropoli- tan area last year, compared with about 1 in 7 for native-born citizens, according to the figures.
