Breaking News: Senate Passes Immigration Overhaul

June 27, 2013 by Matthew Denhart

After months of debate, today the Senate approved a bill that would make sweeping, comprehensive changes to U.S. immigration laws. 

To read all the details of the Senate vote and learn about the next step for immigration reform in the legislative process, refer to these articles from the The Wall Street Journal and The New York Times.

The 4% Growth Project believes better immigration laws generally are one of the most promising ways to achieve faster economic growth. To learn more about the importance of immigrants to America's economy, please check our two books on the topic: "Growth and Immigration," and "The Invisible Hands." In addition, "The 4% Solution" features two wonderful chapters on the relationship between immigration and economic growth.

Furthermore, on July 10, 2013, the 4% Growth Project will host "What Immigrants Contribute" at the Bush Center in Dallas, Texas. This special event will feature a naturalization ceremony and three panel discussions featuring immigration experts who will highlight the many ways immigrants contribute to the American economy and way of life. A live stream of the entire event will be available at www.bushcenter.org. We hope you will join us.
