Immigrants’ Population Is Now Diminishing in the USA 

The vast majority of illegal immigrants come to the United States in search of work. The most effective way to reduce illegal immigration would be the imposition of strong sanctions applied aggressively to both individuals and companies that hire illegal immigrants. 

It is clear that the total deportation of illegal workers would cause a labor shortage that would not affect all sectors equally. On the other hand, the new immigration policy could reduce legal immigration, although it should be0 noted that this is not even a sure fact. If legal immigration slows down or collapses, the consequences for the U.S. economy would be dire. Implications for investment Nothing is decided yet regarding the future trajectory of immigration in the United States.
