Winners & Losers from Immigration
Center for Immigration Studies
WASHINGTON, April 19, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- As the Senate today begins considering legislation to amnesty the illegal population and substantially increase future immigration, it's important to keep in mind the effects this would have on the economic position of American workers.
Included is a graphical representation of numbers drawn from a recent Center for Immigration Studies Backgrounder, "Immigration and the American Worker: A Review of the Academic Literature", by Harvard Professor George Borjas, who is generally recognized as the nation's leading immigration economist. They show only the non-fiscal economic impacts of international migration. Were tax and welfare balances to be shown, the picture would be even more dramatic, since immigrants are, on average, a low-income population.
