Public Policy Institute Study on Immigration
Martin at the Total Buzz Blog
posted on this on Friday afternoon. There is some pretty good stuff here covering the costs and contributions of undocumented immigrants to our economy, their impact on public services and one of the most contentious of issues, whether or not “they” are taking jobs from U.S. Citizens.
I am not really surprised that the other blogs like Orange Juice and the OC Blog haven’t picked up on this yet. The study seems to counter most of the anti-immigrant arguments that are being thrown around as fact. Remember, these immigrant bashers are taking a page right out of the Conservative Republican play book. “Say it often enough and most people will believe it’s true.”
At any rate, you can download a pdf of the study from the Public Policy Institute of California.
