Immigration reform, done right, would be good for immigrants, but it would also be good for all Americans, says David Dyssegaard Kallick. A new report from Carnegie Corporation grantee, the Fiscal Policy Institute, shows that legalizing undocumented immigrants, paired with labor standards enforcement, would boost economic productivity in New York and across the nation. According to the report, reform would remove barriers to advancement for newly legalized immigrants, create a level playing field for businesses, and align our systems of taxation, social services, and social insurance.
