Immigration and the American Economy
Dave Dyssegaard Kallick, with the Fiscal Policy Institute s Immigration Research Initiative that examines the role of immigrants in the New York State economy and beyond
Cal Soto, National Rights Coordinator with the National Day Laborers Organizing Network (NDLON) committed to improve the lives of day laborers in the United States - to protect and expand their civil, labor and human rights.

Few government policies can have so profound an impact on a nation as
immigration. Large numbers of immigrants and their descendants have a significant impact on the cultural, political, and economic situation in their new country. Over the last three decades, socio-economic conditions, and the scourge of war and terror campaigns against the population have caused 25 million people to leave their homelands and emigrate legally to the United States. Additionally, it s estimated that the undocumented population grows by 400,000 to 500,000 each year.

As in the past, immigration has sparked an intense debate over the costs and benefits of such a large number of people entering the country. One of the central aspects of the immigration debate is its impact on the American economy. Presently the debate has been controlled by the white nationalist rants of Donald Trump and others in the Republican Party. But, we re here to debunk the myths, counter the lies, repudiate the vitriol and reset the discussion

There is a poster that s stayed in my mind s eye for years " it s a portrait of a Native American, which says if your so against immigration, splendid when do you leave?
