Report Focuses on U.S. Immigration Policy in Relation to Aging Population

According to "THINKING AHEAD ABOUT OUR IMMIGRANT FUTURE: New Trends and Mutual Benefits in Our Aging Society", written by Dowell Myers for the Immigration Policy Center, the rapid rise in the senior ratio will precipitate not only fiscal crises in the Social Security and Medicare systems, but workforce losses due to mass retirements that will drive labor-force growth perilously low and immigrants and their children will help to fill these jobs and support the rising number of seniors economically.
