The Email That Would Not Die.
Like a zombie from a late-night horror movie, misinformation about the state of U.S. immigration seems to have a life of its own. Back in July 2008, the ISAAC Newsletter debunked an email called, “14 reasons”. Ostensibly the email asserted “facts” about the costs of immigration and immigrants to the economy. The problem with the email is that many of the assertions were false, had half-truths or were just made up. The other day, I received an “updated version” of the email. After careful review, the only things updated were some introductory paragraphs. Alas, this email does not seem to die, so this month, we are reprinted our analysis of this email on the ISAAC Blog’s May 11, 2009 posting. Please remember to keep separating the wheat from the chaff!
