Hi Tara
They have considered the impact of immigrant children.

The share of immigrant students has remained predominantly stable in most
PISA-participating countries since 2012
Once socio-economic status and language spoken at home are taken into
account in the analysis, it turns out that immigrant students outperform
non-immigrant students in more countries/economies than where the opposite
is true.
