Through the years, labor economists have been studying the effects of immigrants within different labor markets. This paper attempts to shed light on some of the issues surrounding America's sudden change in heart. Do immigrants suppress the wages of native born workers and increase the income disparity? Do they lead to higher unemployment and labor market crowding? And finally, is there room for improvement, or will immigrants prove to be a drain on America's resources and economic well-being?
