Immigration contributes to the overall health of the American
economy. Despite recent concerns expressed about illegal and
some legal immigration to the United States, this country has
largely benefited from the skills, talents, and ambition that
immigrants bring with them. American businesses gain from a
good source of affordable labor, while towns and cities are
revitalized by immigrant families who strengthen communities
through civic participation and the generation of new economic
activity. The United States must continue to welcome new arrivals
and help those who are already here; otherwise, the country will
lose the advantages it has over other industrialized countries that
compete against us in the global marketplace and seek to recruit
from a vast pool of unskilled and skilled global workers.
