Infographic – America’s Immigration Advantages

Immigration and the American economy

(Trade Vistas/CSIS)

18 November 2017. If you’ve read Science & Enterprise for any length of time, you’ve seen that many of the scientists and entrepreneurs in the U.S. featured on our pages come from someplace else. In addition, our report in July of this year from a meeting of university research executives told about their fears of an immigration crackdown doing real damage to their labs and scientific production.

Our friends at Trade Vistas, a project of the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington, D.C., compiled a chart outlining the benefits to the U.S. from immigration, posted as this weekend’s infographic. It begins by noting that more than 1 in 3 workers in the U.S. with a PhD in in science, technology, engineering, or mathematics immigrated to this country. Andrea Durkin, Trade Vista’s editor, tells more about immigration’s economic impact and potential in an essay posted yesterday.
