The U.S. Immigration Debate – An Analysis

In a nation of immigrants, the debate surrounding immigration reform continues to surface.  The book Taking Sides presents two opposing views from testimony made before the U.S. Senate in 2006.  Each makes the case for or against the economic impact on the United States.  Both find flaws in the studies of the other, and both suggest legal reforms.  Both attempt to discern the answer to the question of immigration as an economic benefit to the host country.

Answering ‘yes’ is Dan Siciliano, research fellow with the Immigration Policy Center at Stanford.  Siciliano argues that there is high demand for low skilled labor but current laws are set against recruitment of this specified source of labor, exacerbating the illegal immigration problem.
