Immigration News, 9/14/19
QUOTE OF WEEK: “One of the things that we found is if we increase immigration, legal immigration in particular, the entire population as a whole of the United States becomes younger, there are more working-age people who are contributing to economic growth, and also — given current trends in immigration — the population becomes more educated. And so we wind up with more productivity. We wind up with a larger tax base that helps tax burdens on ordinary Americans. And it also helps financing for these entitlement programs like Social Security. So increasing immigration can have a lot of positive impacts on the budget.”
Kimberly Burham, managing director of legislation and special projects for the Penn Wharton Business Model on the Knowledge@Wharton radio show.
