In a Santa Fe Reporter article titled, "American DREAMers," a recent IPC state fact sheet and infographic were used to point out the importance of immigrants in New Mexico:
"According to Congressional Budget Office estimates, for instance, the US economy would grow by $1 trillion if immigration reforms pass.
