how does immigration policy interact with economic policy

2 Answer

  • Well the more people you got coming in, the more money you will need to support those people
  • Immigration is a prominent part of the United States’ DNA. Nevertheless, concerns still exist about immigrants’ ability to integrate into broader society. While integration entails uncomfortable adjustments among immigrants, their descendants, and host societies, so far U.S. immigrant integration has occurred essentially without policy intervention and relatively little federal funding, relying instead primarily on a strong labor market and high-quality public education. Just as previous immigrants incorporated into mainstream American life, an examination of the most recent inflow of immigrants shows they are integrating well, according to five indicators: language proficiency, socioeconomic attainment, political participation, residential locale, and social interaction.
