I agree with KipEsquire, although I think that we should protect the best interests of our citizens. Allowing guest workers probably benefits us, imho.


In addition, the fact that immigrants are not living overseas and consuming American workers' products also hurts U.S. exports.

Does it really matter whether they buy American products abroad as "exports" or here as "consumption"?

Also, I take great exception to your headline -- the study says net loss to "native workers," not "the economy." Remember, these immigrants are now part of "the economy" too, so a transfer from native workers to immigrant workers is, at worst, a zero-sum game as far as "the economy" is concerned. (It is, of course, quite a positive sum game.)
