Why Lawmakers Should Work for a Reform Against Attacks on Legal Immigration
The report, “The Case for Protecting Legal Immigration Against Recent Attacks” includes several of the efforts that are made or being made by our current Administration in the United States. Most of these efforts are targeted towards making immigration more difficult for legal immigrants, Dreamers, and those that are already even here and to overall reduce legal immigration. This is problematic especially because immigrants and immigration are good for the economy of the country. According to the report, immigrants are “a source of economic strength”, helps to grow the GDP of the country which will provide more jobs for Americans as well as increase wages. Attacking legal immigration puts America at an economic disadvantage. More specifically, there will be a 2% drop in GDP by 2040 and 4.6 million fewer jobs. As a result, it is crucial that they need to understand why we need to make reforms towards these new attacks on legal immigration for the sake of our own country.
