Cutler Aversa, J.. (2006, Apr. 4 ). In Business Week Online. Retrieved Oct. 9, 2010, from http:// - +Con- nelly.pdf This was a fairly helpful article in my research. It explained how illegal immigrants in our nation are hard workers who earn lower wages. Therefore, this helps to keep down prices in our economy. It showed research that immigrants who work for low wages, increase profit for business and allow them to expand and boost economic activity. This article claims the only cost illegal immigrants impose on our economy is their use of federal, state, and local resources and many of these costs, such as school and hospitals, are used by children born in the U.S.. It con- tinues on to explain how most immigrants pay federal taxes and payroll taxes. This means that immigrants are paying these taxes, but are unable to receive the benefits of these programs. Finally, it claims that illegal immigrants improve the nations overall labor pool and productivity.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
