ABSTRACT
This article responds to scholar Peter Brimelow's claim that immigrants in the U.S. exploit natives by taking disproportionate funds from the public coffers. The author refutes Brimelow's claim by arguing that previous research has shown that immigrants put into the public coffers in taxes more than they take out in benefits. According to the author, natives in America receive much more money from the public coffers than do immigrants. And immigrant households on average pay more in taxes than native households. Because immigrants mostly come when they are young, they bestow a windfall upon natives through their excess of taxes over government expenditures on their behalf.
