Does immigration have a net positive effect on the United States?

Contents

Background and Context of Debate:

Immigration has shaped life in the United States since its beginning. As of 2006, the United States accepts more legal immigrants as permanent residents than all other countries in the world combined. The economic, social, and political aspects of immigration have caused controversy regarding ethnicity, economic benefits, jobs for non-immigrants, settlement patterns, impact on upward social mobility, crime, and voting behavior.

Is immigration good for the economy?

Pro

According to James Smith, a senior economist at Santa Monica-based RAND Corporation and lead author of the United States National Research Council's study "The New Americans: Economic, Demographic, and Fiscal Effects of Immigration", immigrants contribute as much as $10 billion to the U.S. economy each year.
