How Immigrants Grow the U.S. Economy

February 1, 2013 1 minute Read by Matthew Denhart

On December 4, the George W. Bush Institute will join the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas for a conference to spotlight the positive economic impact of immigration on U.S. economic growth. A live feed of the conference is available here beginning at 10:00 a.m. central time. The conference will feature the work of several immigration scholars, business leaders, and policy practitioners. The 4% Growth Project has prepared two documents in advance of the conference. The first, "Growth and Immigration: A Handbook of Vital Immigration and Economic Growth Statistics," by Matthew Denhart, has just been released, and is available for download here. The second, "Immigrants Today: A Plus to America," a white paper by Richard Vedder, is available for download here.
