Immigrants fuel innovation. Let's not waste their potential. ~Laurene Powell Jobs
Adam Rifkin stashed this in Immigration
From Laurene's article:
More than 170 years ago, Ralph Waldo Emerson called America “the country of the future.”
A large group of immigrants—the struggling and maligned 11 million, more than two-thirds of whom have lived here for more than 10 years—remain trapped in an agonizing state of limbo.
Granting legal status to undocumented immigrants would unleash massive potential, add an estimated 150,000 new jobs annually, and add $1 trillion to America’s GDP.
