#05 Immigration and the American Workforce

Pints & Policy

One of the Trump administration’s goals has been to decrease immigration in the U.S. yet the immigrant population adds value to the U.S. economy. With 62 percent of foreign-born individuals employed in the U.S., is it really possible to limit immigration and have a healthy economy? BPC’s Ashley Swearingen and Rachael Gresson sit down with Senior Policy Analyst Kenny Megan to discuss how immigration impacts the economy and the American workforce. You can learn more about how immigrants are affecting the economy in a country with changing demographics by reading our report, America’s Demographic Challenge and our report on immigration’s effect on employment and wage: Immigration’s Effect on Employment and Wages.
