The United States would not have been an economic superpower today without immigration. Like it or not, the United States is essentially a nation of immigrants.
According to Richard V. Reeves, a senior analyst with the Brookings Institution, immigrants do not just make America a prosperous nation, but they improve the US holistically and give it an edge over other nations. In a recent article for Fortune, he highlights why America would be worse off without immigration.
According to him, studies reveal that the prospects of floating a new business among immigrants are twice when compared to American natives. Entrepreneurial zeal, which is said to be increasing among immigrants, is decreasing in the native populace.
A study also shows that immigrants from the conventional immigrant centres, such as New York and Los Angeles, are, in fact, migrating to other towns and cities within the US to try out their luck. New Americans embody the real spirit of America, despite the paranoia being infused into the native population that they are hurting the economy of the country, Reeves adds.
Immigration might be coming at a cost, but if one weighs its benefits versus disadvantages, it has helped the US to become a more dynamic and diverse nation. It has helped the country reinvent itself many a time in the past. So, without immigration not only will America be economically worse off, but it would stop being America.
The flow of immigrants will continue into America, notwithstanding the rhetoric of the politicians, who are just exploiting the misplaced fears being harboured by the local population.
