According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics about 48% of foreign-born employees that are currently working in the
United States are Latino. Surpassing the Asian community, that is represented by 24%.
It is no secret to anyone the force that immigrants represent in the United States, foreign workers who are driving the US economy with their contributions and taxes.
And many states have benefited. Arkansas is one of them, where the US-born population stagnated and did not grow between 2000 and 2005. Meanwhile, the number of immigrants increased.
This allowed the Chamber of Commerce of the United States to affirm that without the arrival of immigrants many jobs that exist today would not be possible.
Even the contributions of immigrants goes beyond economics, they have also influenced the birth of children in some states.
Turning to taxes, undocumented immigrants pay billions of dollars in taxes each year, often for services that they are not going to receive. The Chamber of Commerce noted that many undocumented immigrants have provided false documents to your employer and, therefore, remain taxes deducted from their paychecks
Another sector that has driven immigrants, especially Latinos and Hispanics is the automotive industry by becoming the owners of most vehicles purchased in the entire United States, reportedly supported by “Solutions for the Automotive Industry” (IHS), a firm specializing in information related to the industry
The IHS says that this race drives the automotive industry, with over 60% of them likely to buy their first new car, and 52% more likely to add further to a new home. They raised in 2014 more than 44 billion dollars in new vehicle sales and have been instrumental in some brands of cars.
Also, a recent study by the Pew Research Center, located in Washington DC, states that the rate of business creation by Hispanics has soared in recent years in this country. Asians do not exceed it but are well placed and focused.
What would happen if they leave the country? If they are deported …
Latin Post reported that the deportation of the 11.3 million undocumented immigrants in the United States would cost at least $ 10,070 per person, which amounts to about $ 114 billion, according to the Center for American Progress.
The Inter-Action Forum (AAF), an institute of center-right political organization, launched its own estimates in
March. Estimates of mass deportation of AAF range between $ 419.6 billion and $ 619.4 billion over a period of 20 years.
The Hispanic population has doubled in the last 20 years, 27 million has reached an estimated 55.4 million by 2014 (17.4% of the total US population)
The states with the largest Hispanic populations are California with 15.2 million; followed by Texas with 10.4 million; and Florida with 4.8 million. Mexicans are dominating.
The loss of all undocumented immigrants in the US it will lead undoubtedly billions and billions of lost wages.
