A Look at How the Immigration Executive Action May Impact California

When it comes to the November 2014 immigration executive action, we’ve discussed a lot of information about the national impacts of this action, as well as how people can start planning to apply for relief from deportation under this action.

Here, however, we want to take a closer look at how the immigration executive action is projected to impact the state of California, according to White House officials.

According to the latest projections from the White House, the immigration executive action could end up meaning the following for California and its residents:

  • A stronger state economy, as there is a more than $11.5 billion expected increase in the state’s GDP (gross domestic product) over the next decade or so
  • Higher wages for some workers, as the average wage for U.S.-born workers is expected to increase by about $170 annually for certain California workers (as well as certain workers in other states)
  • Increased productivity, as about 1.5 million more people in California are projected to be paying California state taxes.

In turn, this could end up meaning that the immigration executive action may also be pivotal in doing the following in California:

  • Increasing the available revenue for the California state budget
  • Increasing the state GDP to more than $27 billion over the next decade
  • Increasing the state’s investment in critical community infrastructures, including roads, schools, govt. agencies, etc.

As the White House’s website notes in explaining the potential impacts of the immigration executive action on California, as well as other states and the nation as a whole:

These actions not only live up to our heritage as a nation but are essential to building on our hopes for a brighter future. In fact, the President’s steps will allow people to contribute more fully to their communities and spark an economic boost for every single state.
