Construction of Main Arguments The benefits of a high immigrant population are apparent in almost every walk of life. Their overall contribution to the general economy is show as a positive one and there improvements to the quality of the workforce are also quite note-worthy. First, let us turn our eyes to something that is indisputable in economics. Even among those who claim that immigration isn’t beneficial still have to accept the fact that overall the United States’ gross domestic product (G.D.P) increases. The Center of Immigration studies’ Camarota Steven (Immigration and the U.S. Economy 2010) an opponent to immigration states that the G.D.P. is increased by 0.24 percent. This may seem small and insignificant, but remember that the population of the United States is very large and G.D.P. is not the only thing that an economy gains from the introduction of more foreign labor. Senator Larry Obhof (The irrationality of enforcement? An economic analysis of U.S. migration law) wishes for a policy that will increase the ease at which immigrant workers from countries such as Mexico can come work in the United States. He states the following points “ (1) Increase the quality of the workforce, (2) bring new ideas and know-how to U.S. Firms, which can lead to innovation, (3) transfer new skills and knowledge to their native coworkers, (4) increase diversity in the workplace.” Now lets take the time to look at each one of these points individually. Increasing the quality of the workforce can be viewed as many things. To begin with we could say that it refers to the nice compliment that immigrants give to the native-born workforce. According to Immigration Policy Center (Strength in diversity, 2010) the immigrant populac.

Regardless of the situation, the company will still strive to reach equilibrium and anyway they try to do that ends up being beneficial. It might not seem beneficial because the lower class did not receive employment, but if the overall cost of something goes down then anybody who purchases that product will be positively affected. Overall, the native citizens that have been so unfortunately trapped in the lower within the United States are probably going to stay trapped. The quality of their lives will increase, but they will remain poor. Immigrants are a huge asset to the nation, and the small costs are for the greater good of everyone involved in the economic system.
