State of the Union

“Finally, if we are serious about economic growth, it is time to heed the call of business leaders, labor leaders, faith leaders, and law enforcement – and fix our broken immigration system.  Republicans and Democrats in the Senate have acted.  I know that members of both parties in the House want to do the same.  Independent economists say immigration reform will grow our economy and shrink our deficits by almost $1 trillion in the next two decades.  And for good reason: when people come here to fulfill their dreams – to study, invent, and contribute to our culture – they make our country a more attractive place for businesses to locate and create jobs for everyone.  So let’s get immigration reform done this year.”

-President Barack Obama

Baltimore Sun: Immigration Benefits Maryland

A good piece by AILA DC Chapter Cynthia Rosenberg refuting the notion that undocumented immigrants harm the economy.  On the contrary, the article points out, the undocumented are responsible for over 6 billion dollars in state domestic product and have created 70,000 jobs statewide.  Whether you’re for or against immigration reform on idealistic grounds, surely the practical side of reform should serve as an important influence.  Immigration is good for the state and good for the country.
