Just in from Washington




Washington--Immigration reform could lead to a boost in the economy, according to a new study from the Bipartisan Policy Center. The report found that during the next 20 years, immigration would bolster the country's economic growth by 4.8 percent. The report also showed that immigration reform would reduce the country's deficits by $1.2 trillion during this time, as young working immigrants take jobs and pay taxes, according to "U.S. News & World Report."

The new report comes during a heated debate on immigration reform on the Hill, as well as the arrival of business leaders from more than 40 states visiting the nation's capital to lobby for reform.
