Conversation on Immigration:
The Economic Imperative for Immigration Reform
Immigration reform remains a hotly debated topic in Congress and across the country. Yet, economists from all sides of the political spectrum have clearly documented through their research that immigration reform will raise our national GDP, create jobs, promote innovation, and create long-term solutions for the problems this country faces in the global economy. The economic consequences of delaying action on immigration reform are very real to workers and our economy.
Join us at an @Microsoft Conversation on Immigration to hear why economists and academics from all sides agree – immigration reform is an economic imperative for the United States. Our panelists will seek to dispel some of the myths surrounding immigration reform and show how it will boost our job growth and the US economy.
