The US Governments View on
mmigration Today
^ Cannot be ignored as Hispanics spend
b a year and rising. Worth a lot
to companies
^ mmigration part of the A Dream,
opportunities to succeed
^ California relies on cheap labour,
makes products cheaper and more
competitive as they drive down
^ oreans and Hispanics regenerate
Ghettos. Employ Americans, buy
American products. Would not have
happened if left to blacks. They are
putting money into the economy
