Link To News: Let’s Give Thanks for Immigrants

From CityLab

 

Ultimately, the study finds overwhelming evidence that U.S. counties with a large proportion of well-integrated immigrants a century ago exhibit stronger economic performance today. By contrast, places that were characterized by high degrees of ‘polarization,’ or segregation, a century ago tend to be worse off economically today.

 In other words, the collision of different identities and ideas that occurs in diverse communities doesn’t just create a more dynamic economy in the here and now; this sense of openness actually embeds itself in the fabric of places for decades to come.
Of course, there are other reasons why places that attract large numbers of immigrants tend to be more successful over time. Immigrants are typically drawn to places that offer more economic opportunity to begin with: People don’t leave their homes and cross oceans to settle somewhere with limited economic opportunity. The irony is that the places that have historically been hostile to immigrants are less likely to be prosperous precisely because they are closed to the new people and ideas that drive innovation and economic growth. Indeed, for places where economic anxiety has given rise to anti-immigration sentiment, it may actually be a lack of immigrants that stands at the root of their economic distress.
