The Economic Benefits of Immigration Reform

"A new report, Raising the Floor for American Workers: The Economic Benefits of Comprehensive Immigration Reform, by Dr. Raul Hinojosa-Ojeda, finds that comprehensive immigration reform (CIR) which includes a legalization program for unauthorized immigrants would result in a large economic benefit –$1.5 trillion in additional U.S. Gross Domestic Product (GDP) over 10 years.  In contrast, continuation of an enforcement-only policy would result in a loss of $2.6 trillion in GDP over 10 years." -Immigration Policy Center
