Before 1965, U.S. immigrants had similar skill and education levels with the non-immigrant population. However, after 1965, there were higher quotas of high-skilled and low-skilled immigrants, at the expense of average-skilled immigrants. It seems, immigrants are more willing to work and work hard. However, studies show the social costs of poor immigrants, particularly for health care and education, given higher fertility rates, far exceed what they pay in taxes. Consequently, unrestricted open borders may be costly, and increase poverty, in rich countries.


Check out CGD Research Fellow Michael Clemens's blog posting on the article:

Samib, that article makes no adjustments in skill differences over time. If the U.S. population doubled with people who had similar skills, GDP would double and per capita income would be the same. However, it seems, if the U.S. population doubled with people who had higher skills, GDP would more than double and per capita income would rise, etc. Also, immigrants with higher education, more wealth, greater productivity, etc. would have a similar effect.
