"A general equilibrium analysis of effects of undocumented workers in the United States"
by Tsigas, Marinos and Hugh Arce


Abstract
We examine some of the economic impacts of the 7.2 million undocumented workers in the United States. We use the USAGE-ITC model, an applied general equilibrium model of the United States. Our simulation suggests that the immigration surplus due to undocumented workers is about $20 billion, which is about 0.19 percent of GDP. Additional calculations with the GTAP model of global trade suggest that ignoring the international implications of immigration and remittances might underestimate the immigration surplus due to undocumented workers.
