Immigrants filling up these jobs lighten the load of producers and consumers, and results in gains in economic welfare. Immigrants are a source of low cost labor, but these cost reductions are eventually passed on to the consumer, so host country citizens benefit from this as well. The goods produced through the efforts of immigrant workers can also generate additional profits as the goods can be sold at lower price. 2. Increase in cultural diversity

Immigrants moving in means more ethnic restaurants to dine in, more cultural centers to enjoy. 3. Increase in standard of living in the part of immigrants
