The Economist Touts Economic Benefits of Immigration
In a recent editorial, The Economist touted the economic benefits of immigration, which it asserts far outweighs the concerns of restrictive Western countries. The magazine noted, "Immigration is, on the whole, good for economies; and right now, rich countries can do with all the economic help they can get. Rather than sending immigrants home, with their skills, energy, ideas and willingness to work, governments should be encouraging them to come. If they don’t, governments elsewhere will."
