Study/Action Issue

“Immigration as a Moral Issue” is the 2010-2014 Congregational Study/Action Issue (CSAI) of the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA).

The Congregational Study/Action Issue is an invitation for congregations and districts to take a topic of concern and confront it, reflect on it, learn about it, respond to it, comment on it take action—each in their own way. A CSAI is NOT a statement—it is a question.

Immigrant Myth-Buster #1

“Immigrants are a drain on our social services.”

Fact: By paying taxes and Social Security, immigrants contribute far more to government coffers than they use in social services. An average of $80,000 per immigrant over a lifetime is paid into our public revenues over and above local benefits received in that same lifespan – this conclusion was reached independently in 1997 and 2007 by the National Research Council (NRC) of the National Academy of Sciences and the Council of Economic Advisers in separate studies.
