Serial No. 109-27: Immigration Policy and Its Impact on the American Economy: Hearing before the Committee on Education and the Workforce, U.S. House of Representatives, One Hundred Ninth Congress, First Session, November 16, 2005   [open pdf - 976KB]

John A. Boehner: "We are holding this hearing today to hear testimony on U.S. immigration policy and its impact on the American economy. President Bush has announced his principles for immigration reform, and Congress is expected to act on corresponding legislation in the weeks and months to come. Many of these reforms concentrate on border security and other high-profile issues that have been covered prominently by the media and debated frequently here on Capitol Hill. However, often overlooked is the impact on workers of current immigration policy and proposed immigration policy changes. Indeed, two of the more important policy discussions taking place here in Washington focus on the need for reform of our nation's immigration laws and the need for a bold approach to keep our economy and our workforce competitive at the outset of the 21st century. These two discussions happen to intersect at a very unique way, right here at the Education and Workforce Committee, and they are front and center at this hearing today." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: John A. Boehner, Dennis J. Kucinich, Charlie Norwood, Steven A. Camarota, Douglas Holtz-Eakin, Harry J. Holzer, Dan Siciliano.
