We Wanted Workers

In We Wanted Workers, George Borjas, America’s leading immigration economist, pulls back the curtain of political bluster to show that immigration has created winners and losers. The losers tend to be nonmigrant workers who compete for the same jobs as immigrants. And somebody’s lower wage is somebody else’s higher profit, so those who employ immigrants benefit handsomely. In the end, immigration is mainly just another government redistribution program.
