This source states that the undocumented immigrants in the United States expand the country’s economic productivity. According to this source, this is evident through a promotion of specialization and stimulation of investments. This source was written by two authors; Carrillo and Concetto in their article “Labour.” A reader would find this source reliable following the number of sources used by the authors. The source also claims that the presence of undocumented immigrants has led efficiency gains and increase income per worker in the country. This source supports my argument that stated that the undocumented immigrants have resulted in a positive impact on the country’s economy through specialization in terms work or jobs.

This source was written by two authors in their article in their journal “Economic Inquiry.” A reader would find this source reliable since it is very analytical regarding sources and figure quotation This source contradicts my argument which stated that the both the native born Americans and the undocumented immigrants would benefit from the economic expansion.
