ASA Statement Ahead of House Budget Hearing on Economic Cost of Increased Immigration

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The American Securities Association (ASA), in advance of today’s U.S. House Committee on the Budget hearing, released the following statement from ASA President & CEO Chris Iacovella on the impact of immigration on municipalities, their budgets, and the cost of municipal bonds to fund projects in their communities.


“As the nation grapples with mass immigration, its financial implications extend beyond political discourse and into the economic fabric of cities, states, and towns across the country. Municipalities have become overwhelmed by the increase in their population and are finding their budgets and the ability to provide basic services stretched to their outer limits. If something doesn’t change, then, one way or another, this will cause an increase in costs for municipalities and the people who call those communities home. We ask lawmakers to focus on how this aspect of immigration is impacting the American economy- on the local, state, and national level.”
