...should help to assimilate the immigrants to help our production and boost our economy. Documented immigrants play a major role in the economy today, and are projected to be even more important to the United States economy in the future. Results show that job loss is not related to immigration, so immigrants cannot be blamed for our job deficit in America today. Even with the problem on undocumented immigrants, the benefits of all the other immigrants out weight the problems caused by immigration. In the end, the policies of immigration need to be changed to help more immigrants to become assimilated into our society to help out our own cause, and not are preoccupied trying to keep everyone out. The supporting evidence shown throughout can be useful to help see the beneficial factors of immigration and why we should invite immigration into the United States.
