* By CLINIC’s reckoning, illegal immigrants as a whole make a vital contribution to the American economy. One 2010 study, says the Network, found found that “comprehensive immigration reform that legalizes currently unauthorized immigrants and creates flexible legal limits on future immigration would yield at least $1.5 trillion in added U.S. gross domestic product over a 10-year period,” whereas “deporting all undocumented immigrants would lead to $2.6 trillion loss in gross domestic product over a 10-year period.”
