We’ve recently taken an in-depth look at how immigration reform benefits the U.S. economy.
However, there still remains a lot of misinformation about immigration reform and immigrants as a whole. Those who oppose immigration reform often claim that immigrants take away jobs from Americans and are unfairly using public benefits. This infographic from the Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service serves to debunk many common myths on immigration.
It’s clear that immigration reform is something that America as a country needs and that Americans as a whole want. We still have a long way to go for immigration reform to happen. There remains a lot to be done by our elected officials and this is the time that we keep the pressure on to ensure that the final bill for immigration reform is fair for everyone.
