Do you think legal immigration is good or bad for the economy?

What do you think and why?
Thanks from McCoy

For any other reason than to keep the population up because white people aren't making babies?

Look at the demographics. Too many baby boomers are retiring and living too damned long. Just ask Sabcat.

With legal immigration, you can channel which areas of employment the immigrants will be guided to so that can help areas that need it.

Illegal immigration is more questionable. But there is still the question of who is going to pick the fruit and do the roofing in Arizona in the summer.
Thanks from Camelot and Clara007

Well now, you just told the conservatives what they've been trying to tell the Liberal-sheep. Immigration must be targeted to only those with skills needed.

You can manage on your own. And your bathtub is not a pool.

Especially those with a few million to invest, or those with advanced degrees.

Robotics will increasingly cover manual labor, we already have robotic lawn services that need far fewer workers. Same in agriculture, factories.

Silly, the housecleaner cleans the bathtubs, pool maintenance is a different service.

Seriously, the country needs immigration to sustain the economy.
Economic growth is the sum of population growth and productivity growth.
If we depended on productivity increases, our growth rate would be around 1%.
And in the long run, if you are going to have broad based distribution of wealth, you need to keep your after tax return on investment lower than the growth rate.
When wealth gets too concentrated, the system collapses.
