 Abstract
(Summary)
 
 "There's
always
a
sense
that
immigrants
are
a
drain
on
the
economy
rather
than
 contributing,"
said
Manuel
Pastor,
director
of
the
USC
Center
for
the
Study
of
 Immigrant
Integration,
which
conducted
the
study.
"What
I
think
this
suggests
is
 there
are
huge
contributions,
and
those
contributions
grow
over
time."
 
 The
study
made
no
distinction
between
legal
and
illegal
immigrants
because
of
 limitations
in
the
available
data,
most
of
which
came
from
the
U.S.
Census
Bureau's
 American
Community
Survey
in
2005‐07.
That
prompted
an
opponent
of
illegal
 immigration
to
call
the
report
"irrelevant."
 
 "We
believe
immigration
is
the
lifeblood
of
our
economy
and
our
culture,"
said
Tony
 Bell,
spokesman
for
Los
Angeles
County
Supervisor
Mike
Antonovich.
"It
is
illegal
 immigration
that
takes
a
catastrophic
economic
and
cultural
toll.
...
Any
study
that
 doesn't
differentiate
between
the
two
cannot
be
taken
seriously."

 Shining
a
flattering
light
on
California's
growing
immigrant
population,
researchers
 reported
Tuesday
that
the
state's
foreign‐born
residents
are
more
likely
than
the
 native‐born
to
have
jobs,
and
they
put
more
into
the
economy
than
they
take
out
of
 it.
 
 The
study
supports
calls
for
proposed
changes
in
immigration
laws
that
would
 "allow
immigrants
to
contribute
more
fully
to
the
California
economy,"
said
Reshma
 Shamasunder,
director
of
the
California
Immigrant
Policy
Center,
which
released
the
 report.
 
 The
study
concluded
that
although
many
immigrants
need
public
assistance
right
 after
they
arrive
in
the
United
States,
they
tend
to
improve
their
financial
situations
 over
time
through
hard
work
and
entrepreneurship.
 
 "There's
always
a
sense
that
immigrants
are
a
drain
on
the
economy
rather
than
 contributing,"
said
Manuel
Pastor,
director
of
the
USC
Center
for
the
Study
of
 Immigrant
Integration,
which
conducted
the
study.
"What
I
think
this
suggests
is
 there
are
huge
contributions,
and
those
contributions
grow
over
time."
 
 The
California
Immigrant
Policy
Center
describes
itself
as
a
nonpartisan,
nonprofit
 statewide
organization
that
focuses
on
supporting
pro‐immigrant
policies.
 
 The
study
made
no
distinction
between
legal
and
illegal
immigrants
because
of
 limitations
in
the
available
data,
most
of
which
came
from
the
U.S.
Census
Bureau's
 American
Community
Survey
in
2005‐07.
That
prompted
an
opponent
of
illegal
 immigration
to
call
the
report
"irrelevant."
 
 "We
believe
immigration
is
the
lifeblood
of
our
economy
and
our
culture,"
said
Tony
 Bell,
spokesman
for
Los
Angeles
County
Supervisor
Mike
Antonovich.
"It
is
illegal
 immigration
that
takes
a
catastrophic
economic
and
cultural
toll.
...
Any
study
that
 doesn't
differentiate
between
the
two
cannot
be
taken
seriously."
 
 But
the
USC
researchers
said
they
looked
at
illegal
immigrants
in
a
separate
study
 released
earlier
this
month,
concluding
that
giving
legal
status
to
currently
 "unauthorized"
members
of
the
Latino
work
force
would
add
$16
billion
annually
to
 the
California
economy.
 
 Pastor
said
that
because
of
differences
in
wages
and
access
to
public
services,
illegal
 immigrants'
net
contribution
to
the
state
may
be
higher
than
that
of
legal
 immigrants.
 
 The
new
study
portrays
an
immigrant
population
that
is
already
critical
to
the
 state's
economic
prospects.
 
 California's
9.9
million
immigrants
represent
27
percent
of
the
population,
the
 highest
of
any
state.
Forty‐eight
percent
of
children
living
in
California
have
at
least
 one
immigrant
parent.
And
their
impact
is
rising,
with
immigrant
voters
and
their
 children
likely
to
represent
29
percent
of
potential
voters
by
2012.
 
 As
for
their
economic
impact,
immigrants
make
up
34
percent
of
the
labor
force.
 Among
people
over
age
16,
62
percent
of
immigrants
are
employed,
slightly
more
 than
the
60
percent
of
non‐immigrants.
And
among
Latino
and
Asian
men
in
the
25‐ 64
age
group,
84
percent
of
immigrants
are
employed,
in
contrast
with
78
percent
of
 U.S.‐born
men
in
that
category.
 
 Immigrants
contribute
32
percent
of
California's
gross
domestic
product
and
27
 percent
of
total
household
income
‐‐
the
basis
for
the
researchers'
conclusion
that
 they
give
more
to
the
economy
than
they
get
from
it.
 
 Pastor
said
studying
immigrants
of
different
generations
shows
a
"dramatic"
decline
 in
poverty
rates
and
rise
in
home‐ownership
over
the
years.
