White House touts economic effect of Obama's immigration program

The White House said Monday that President Obama’s executive actions on immigration could boost California’s economy by as much as $27.5 billion.

In a public relations blitz ahead of the rollout of Obama’s expanded deferred action program, White House advisor Cecilia Muñoz said the president’s move to give work permits to millions and ease restrictions on high-skilled immigrants would increase wages and productivity in the nation’s largest economy.

“The executive actions encourage innovation and entrepreneurship,” Muñoz said. “By allowing undocumented immigrants … to come out of the shadows and into the mainstream economy, the president’s executive actions make it easier for both immigrants and U.S.-born workers to find jobs that best suit their skills.”

Muñoz cited statistics from the White House Council of Economic Advisors, which has estimated that the package of changes announced by Obama last November would raise the nation’s gross domestic product by up to $90 billion over the next decadeby expanding the labor force and givingimmigrant workers the flexibility to seek new jobs.

Along with issuing temporary work permits to millions of eligible immigrants who have U.S.-born children or who were brought here as youths, Obama’s new policy will allow foreign workers in some high-skilled fields to change jobs as they wait for green cards.
