Table: The Two Faces of Immigration


ILLEGALS CAN BE A SOCIAL BURDEN...

Schools

More demand for English-language instruction. Overcrowding in melting-pot cities.

Hospitals

Greater need for emergency-room care. Less likely to have health insurance and preventive care.

Welfare

Higher local spending for traditional welfare.

Economy

Larger supply of labor. Additional small-business formation. More and younger workers paying into Social Security.
