Immigration Could Reduce the Deficit by at Least $1Trillion Over the Next Ten Years

One common argument for limiting immigration is the belief that immigrants place a burden on the welfare system, ultimately increasing the financial strain on native citizens. However, this notion is actually false. In fact, immigration has the opposite effect, reducing the burden on the welfare state and contributing to a healthier economy. According to a recent report by the Congressional Budget Office (CBO), immigration is projected to decrease the federal budget deficit by approximately $1 trillion over the next decade. This is due to the fact that immigration leads to a larger labor force, which in turn boosts economic growth and generates more tax revenue. The CBO also predicts that the influx of immigrants will continue to have a positive impact on the economy and help reduce future budget deficits, which are expected to average $2 trillion annually over the next 10 years. This is a much-needed relief, as the country’s aging population and declining workforce put a strain on government programs. It’s worth noting that the CBO’s estimates may actually be conservative, as they are not allowed to use “dynamic” scoring to fully assess the fiscal benefits of immigration. Additionally, the CBO does not take into account the entrepreneurial contributions of immigrants, which have been shown in numerous studies to further boost the economy and government revenue. In short, immigration is a key factor in driving economic growth and funding government programs, and it’s time to recognize its positive impact rather than perpetuating false beliefs.
