In the article "Immigration Reform 2014: Economic Impact of Obama Helping Immigrants Includes More Jobs, Tax Revenue" by Morgan Winsor the topic of Obama's new immigration policies is discussed. Some of the common arguments against immigration from an economic side are that immigration places a heavy burden on schools, social welfare systems, overpopulation, and scarce resources. The article in question argues these against these points by proposing the fact that instead the incoming pool of immigrants would be a boon to the local economies in the form of increased jobs, increased labor income and increased tax revenues. It also brought up the fact that if these same immigrants were removed from their new homes in america the states would lose significant revenue and tax flow. What does SWEET think?
