Study Says Immigration Reform Will Boost Economy

Las Vegas CBS KXNT – Immigration reform will create 600-thousand new jobs in the next five years, according to a new study.

Legal workers are more mobile, more able to acquire new skills, according to the consulting company Regional Economics Models, Inc., which published the study. REMI economist Corey Stottlemyer told KXNT legal workers are also more vested in the American economy.

Tax reform watchdog Grover Norquist praised the study during a conference call this week, calling it a “serious, grown-up study pointing out the benefits of immigration.”

The study examined three key elements of the senate immigration reform bill — visa programs for both high and low-skilled workers, and the pathway to legal status.
