Dear Editor:
National Immigration Forum's rebuttal is full of assertions, but no evidence. The data that CIS based its research on are publicly available. Let National Immigration Forum run the data using its assertions, and present us with the results. Until then, they're mouthing the same tired arguments that immigrants, all immigrants, legal or illegal, are a benefit to the US. Or could it be that he's afraid that this new generation of immigrants, consisting as it does largely of unskilled, uneducated, workers, will put the lie to his claims, and refute the earlier work on immigration which showed that previous generations of more highly skilled, highly educated legal immigrants did indeed have a (small) net benefit to the US economy, and assimilated over time. By the way, National Immigration Forum, if it actually does such a study, should consider whether the economic benefits that immigrants do produce could be/would be produced by citizens if immigration didn't occur. It should also consider whether the benefits accrue to the US citizenry as a whole, or only to the immigrants themselves.
