Immigration Reality: The mega payoff of increased immigration is lost on the pols

Here is more discussion of the report released last week on how immigrants boost the employment level of native-born workers. 

The mega payoff of increased immigration is lost on the pols: "I have a plan that will raise wages, lower prices, increase the nation's stock of scientists and engineers, and maybe even create the next Google. Better yet, this plan won't cost the government a dime. In fact, it'll save money. A lot of money. But few politicians are going to want to touch it.

Here's the plan: More immigration. A pathway to legal status for undocumented immigrants. And a recognition that immigration policy is economic policy and needs to be thought of as such." Sept. 25, 2010, Washington Post
