As Arizona's Immigration Law SB 1070 Debated, Do We Actually Need More Immigrants?

As Arizona's Immigration Law SB 1070 Debated, Do We Actually Need More Immigrants?

As the Supreme Court begins to consider Arizona’s anti-immigration law, now is a time to reflect on the place of immigration in our economy and our society.

Yesterday, the Wall Street Journal showed that immigrants are a driving force behind America’s hottest new companies. This corroborates long-standing, non-partisan evidence that immigration is good for the economy—even the immigration of low-skilled workers. Similarly, it’s beyond a cliché to argue that America is a country founded and enriched by immigrants throughout our history.

Is the real immigration crisis that there isn’t enough of it?
