One clichéd argument against immigration reform is that it will lead to job loss.  Laura Clawson of Daily Kos puts the stake to this lie.  According to analysis of Congressional Budget Office data, every congressional will gain at least 7,000 jobs if the reform law is passed.  Some districts will gain as many as 14,000.  Most interestingly, the report was generated by a group that support moderate Republican legislators.  Maybe this is good news for immigration reform and the jobs economy.
