The Elections in US have been experiencing an environment wherein all possible issues making a change in the economy of the country are being wrecked.
One of the most important issues is “Immigration and its impact” on the country.
On one hand, Romney blames Obama administration for making little efforts towards immigration. On the other hand, the mood swing of Americans reveals that Immigrants are less wanted in the country, in the present dooming market.
A study conducted by a group of experts has recommended an immediate change in the Immigration System of the country, but, the efforts made by previous Governments have shown little improvements.
The Immigrant Population
About 12% of the population living in US are foreign burns which is definitely the highest in the last few decades. Out of this population, almost, 16 million are citizens and 21 million are not.
Contribution of Immigrants
The US economy absorbs Immigrants by expanding job opportunities instead of taking away jobs from the natives.
The output calculated per worker is also found to be larger, because the number of working hours is also studied to be more than others.
A report says that one out of three workers in California is foreign based nationals.
The skilled Immigrants also have a high quality of contribution in the technology development and research.The Immigrant investors bring in galore of jobs by enterprising business in the country.
The scenario in Canada
Almost 250,000 immigrants are welcome in the country. By 2031, the nation expects its half of the population to be occupied by Immigrants, especially in cities like Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver.
The country has pro-immigration policies and Immigration is never an issue of winning elections in the Country.
Provinces with weak economy are considered for more of immigration in order to strengthen the economy.
New comers pay taxes and contribute in meeting the economic crunches of most of the provinces in Canada.
A survey reveals that 80% of the Canadians appreciate the positive contribution of Immigrants in developing the economy of the provinces. Only 20% or so believe that new immigrants take away the jobs from them.
The Immigrants seem to be contributing positively to the economy of many developed countries, though they might not be getting a welcome treatment from all of them.
