Economic Impacts of Immigration

Testimony of Harry J. Holzer to the Committee on Education and the Workforce, U.S. House of Representatives
November 16, 2005

Abstract

It would be economically unwise to curtail immigration drastically to the United States, Harry Holzer, a visiting fellow at the Urban Institute and former chief economist at the U.S. Department of Labor, told a House committee. The prices of some important categories of consumer goods would rise significantly, while employment shortfalls would be exacerbated in some key sectors as well.
