The New York Times recently published a very good article on the economic benefits of immigration. I would urge everyone to read it. Here is the link. The article looks at the arguments made by those opposed to immigration and shows how they are incorrect and, in fact, immigration does help our economy. It cites to several studies that were done on this issue, including the survey of almost all leading economists, all of whom agreed that immigration is a plus for our economy.
Let me know what you think in the comments.
