California Leaders to Address Cost of a Trump Mass Deportation Policy on State Economy & Communities

Los Angeles, CA — On Thursday, California experts, business and community leaders will hold a press conference to address the dangerous impacts of a mass deportation policy that would remove unauthorized immigrant workers in the state.

As immigration reform moves to the center of public discussion, the Center for American Progress (CAP) has released a study on the cost of mass deportation of unauthorized workers in California, looking into the economic impacts it would have on the state’s industries, overall economy and vulnerable communities. Donald Trump has consistently expressed his support for an enforcement only plan, including deporting unauthorized immigrants

CAP’s analysis estimates that removing 7 million workers from the country would reduce the total number of U.S. workers by nearly 5 percent. California – comprised of strong minority constituencies that disapprove of Donald Trump’s at historic levels – would stand to lose billions in annual GDP across key sectors under a mass deportation policy.
