Give Me--Everybody

December 1997
National Review;12/31/1997, Vol. 49 Issue 25, p14
The article focuses on a report by economists George J. Borjas and Richard B. Freeman on the economics of immigration. Both Borjas and Freeman have demonstrated that the claim by Senator Spencer Abraham that their report on behalf of the National Academy of Science (NAS) was highly favorable toward immigration was inexact. Abraham has claimed that the NAS found immigrants raise GNP by some $200 million a year, while also emphasizing that most of this goes to the immigrants themselves. Abraham has also claimed that the NAS found a net fiscal benefit from immigrants. The conclusion of the NAS report is that America is not merely being transformed for nothing--it is actually paying for the privilege.
