Immigration: An Engine For Economic Growth

June 10, 2013 - June 11, 2013
#NAAimmigration, #11Million, #ImmigrationReform

NAA members, business leaders and advocates will raise our collective voice on the imperative for immigration reform and to deliver a resounding statement to the nation’s elected leadership on the value of immigration as an engine for economic prosperity. Participation in this program is by invitation.

As discussed at last year's inaugural NAA American Latino National Summit, we have a vested interest in ensuring full participation of all Latinos in our nation's economic, educational and civic system, while also dispelling the misinformation that so often clouds public and policy debates. As reported in our 2012 American Latino Agenda, full report HERE included:

  • There is no correlation between immigration and unemployment
  • Immigrants impact the growth of the nation's job market and economy
  • Immigrants are more likely than natives to start their own businesses generating an estimated $775 billion in revenue, $125 billion in payroll, and $100 billion in income as of 2011.
