9:20AM Tomorrow: BPC to Release Economic Analysis on Immigration at U.S. Chamber

Monday, October 28, 2013

Washington, D.C. – The Bipartisan Policy Center, working with policy experts, will release a study of the economic and budgetary impacts of varying policy frameworks for immigration reform. Leading economists will discuss the findings and the role of immigration reform in economic growth during a panel at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce tomorrow, October 29, at 9:20AM EDT.

At the heart of the ongoing immigration reform debate is the question of the anticipated costs and benefits of reform. Assessing the impact of the various reform proposals on economic growth, wages, housing markets and the federal budget is critical to making an informed judgment as to whether enactment of reform legislation is in the best interest of the country.

The panelists will address the paper and other economic analyses in this debate. This panel is part of a larger event organized by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce; Bibles, Badges and Business; Partnership for a New American Economy and The panel is open to the public and the press.

Other groups have chosen to conduct modeling by excluding important factors, such as tax revenues, economic growth and the impact of government spending. This report aims to produce a more complete and balanced assessment of immigration reform’s economic and budget impacts. BPC partnered with Macroeconomic Advisers, LLC to examine these impacts of reform proposals in the Senate immigration bill, as well as five alternate scenarios.
