It’s extremely clear that immigration is not only a driver of the U.S. economy but also the creative spirit that has historically given it an edge in the world marketplace.

A December 12 article on Forbes tells the uplifting stories of a number of successful Americans who have come to the United States from every corner of the world in search of a better life while also helping to make life better for others. The article also points out such data points as a 2019 Gallup poll finding that 76% of Americans still see immigration as beneficial, as well as a recent study that indicated the children of immigrants boast consistently higher rates of upward mobility compared to others. Los Angeles-based immigration attorney Henry A. Posada says that it’s extremely clear that immigration is not only a driver of the U.S. economy but also the creative spirit that has historically given it an edge in the world marketplace.

There is no way to ignore the reality that the landscape for newcomers to the United States has become much more challenging in recent years, says Mr. Posada, though new American citizens are still naturalized every single day. The attorney adds that part of the problem is that too few native-born Americans understand that immigrants give so much to the economy. That’s literally true, says the attorney, when it comes to the massive amounts paid in payroll, sales, and federal taxes by immigrants.

That’s only the beginning, says Mr. Posada. An even more substantial benefit from immigration is from the diversity of ideas and concepts they bring with them from around the world, says Mr. Posada. America has built its economy taking ideas and products from around the world and then reinventing and repackaging them for worldwide consumption. For example, the world has enjoyed Americanized versions of everything from cars, to pizza, to clothing. Mr. Posada points out that blue jeans were created in the 1840s for California gold miners by German-Jewish immigrant Levi Strauss and marketed by him and his partner, originally from Latvia. Today, there probably isn’t a place on the planet where people don’t wear Levis, one of the USA’s most iconic products, says Mr. Posada.

The attorney adds that it’s also the raw energy and enterprising spirit of immigrants who, after all, have had to physically uproot themselves and travel long distances to start their new lives. It’s probably not by accident, says Mr. Posada, that the line from the musical phenomenon “Hamilton,” “Immigrants, we get the job done!” has resonated so deeply with audiences young and old.
