Then I got to thinking: with all this talk about jobs and the economy, how come nobody has mentioned immigration reform? Of course I know that's a different contentious debate therein and of itself. But even so, couldn't immigration reform create a positive impact on the economy?
Of course I know the answer, but I decided to ask an expert:
Hmm, $1.5 Trillion in economic growth over 10yrs?
So you tell me: what could it hurt?
