In this two-article series Luis Pablo de la Horra explains that, both from a theoretical and a practical standpoint, more open and less restrictive immigration policies bring tremendous economic benefits to the countries that embrace them. Immigrants bring both a positive fiscal impact and major economic growth to their host countries.

Mr. de la Horra writes, “All in all, the economic benefits of immigration seem obvious for both host countries and immigrants. The data shows that restrictive immigration policies have adverse effects on host economies and prevent would-be immigrants from increasing their income by migrating to higher-productivity countries. Thus, the path to take is clear: we should gradually reduce immigration barriers so that more and more people can take advantage of the benefits of capitalism.”
