It's a Win.....Win situation!

"WASHINGTON: The White House released a report Tuesday indicating that naturalization of undocumented immigrants would be a boon for the US economy as it pressed the House to approve immigration reform.



The bill, already passed by the Senate, would provide a pathway to citizenship for 11 million undocumented immigrants, an act that the White House says would boost US GDP by $1.4 trillion over 10 years, citing outside estimates.



The White House report showed an increase in total income for all Americans by $791 billion,$184 billion in additional state and federal tax revenue and the creation of two million jobs over the same period."

We already know that the rich will get richer when wages are driven down as demand for resources drives prices higher.

Any American can get rich if they really work hard enough and make the necessary sacrifice ask economist J R.

Benefits of legalization.....

"National and State-by-State Economic Benefits of Immigration Reform

If the 11.1 million undocumented immigrants currently living in the United States were provided legal status, then the 10-year cumulative increase in the gross domestic product, or GDP, of the United States would be $832 billion. Similarly, the cumulative increase in the personal income of all Americans over 10 years would be $470 billion. On average over 10 years, immigration reform would create 121,000 new jobs each year. Undocumented immigrants would also benefit and contribute more to the U.S. economy. Over the 10-year period they would earn $392 billion more and pay an additional $109 billion in taxes—$69 billion to the federal government and $40 billion to state and local governments. After 10 years, when the undocumented immigrants start earning citizenship, they will experience additional increases in their income on the order of 10 percent, which will in turn further boost our economy."
