Comment: Immigration And The City - One of the largest demographic trends in the US and the World is increasing urbanization. At the beginning of the 20th century, 4% or Americans lived in urban areas and now the number is up to 80%. To see the place of immigration in the US, it is instructive to look at the place of immigration in New York City, the heart of its largest metropolitan area. Crain's New York Business reports that in 2008, immigrants accounted for 33% of city's economic activity, made up 36% of the city's population, 43% of its workforce, and 60% of its homeowners. The actual impact of immigrants is even stronger than suggested by these numbers as they do not take into account the large role undocumented New Yorkers play in the city's economy. These numbers are nothing short of astounding. They make you think about the massive benefit, both economic and human, of our immigration laws.
