Would legalizing currently undocumented immigrants in the United States place an unneeded amount of strain on the economy?
Not according to a recent report issued by the Immigration Policy Center. This report, titled “Economic Progress Via Legalization: Lessons from the Last Legalization Program,” argues that legalizing currently undocumented immigrants could allow the United States economy to receive a significant number of financial benefits. This would lead to immediate job growth. The report uses the Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA) of the 1980’s, which granted a large number of undocumented immigrants legal status, as an example that could be applied to today’s immigration issues.
