The article, “Without immigrants, the U.S. economy would be a ‘disaster,’ experts say,” supports the ideology of immigrants in the U.S because its economic downfall is not only because of immigrants (Tan, & Marshall, 2017). Even if the remittances are spent in home counties, the money still finds its way back to the U.S by buying food and other necessities that are not in their home countries. If all immigrants were to disappear from the U.S workforce, it would greatly impact the economy. Therefore, the government should stop fighting immigration as they are represented in many sectors, both low-and high-skilled jobs. The other article, “Immigrants Sent $140 Billion From U.S. Back to Homelands in 2016,” supports the ideology that immigrants should be chased away from the U.S because they don’t add value to the country’s economy (Munro, 2018).
