June 19, 2013. Von Diaz reports on FPI’s analysis of the economic effects of immigration reform.
The FPI report perhaps isn’t the most provocative to come out in recent months, but it takes a balanced approach. Kallick doesn’t claim that legalizing undocumented immigrants will be the saving grace of the struggling U.S. economy. Rather, Kallick describes a measured approach, which he believes could lead to greater economic stability.
“I think that people sometimes exaggerate the potential consequences – positive or negative,” Kallick says. “I hope people will feel like there is a clear gain to all of us to having a context in which everyone who’s here has legal status.”
