Attention South Carolina:  If undocumented immigrants are removed, South Carolina stands to lose $1.8 billion in economic activity. 

  • If they are granted legal status, they would pay $40.7 million in state and local taxes.
  • Undocumented immigrants make up at least 2% of South Carolina’s population.  They paid $33.4 million in state and local taxes in 2010.

Florence/Myrtle Beach WPDE ABC 15 News interviews Donusia Lipinski. “”I don’t see immigration as a political issue, it’s about who we are as a people,” said Lipinski.”

Myrtle Beach Immigration Law’s immigration attorney, Donusia Lipinski, was featured on the ABC15 News on March 1, 2017. She shared her views and passion towards immigration.

It’s safe to say the debate over illegal immigration is one of the most emotional and controversial facing our country at this time. But, have you ever wondered what impact illegal immigration has on our economy?

The Federation for American Immigration Reform estimates the annual cost of illegal immigration is $113 billion.

But, the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy says illegal immigrants contribute more than they take, bringing in more than $11 billion dollars.

So, which is it?

Ultimately, the most recent report by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office says most of their estimates determined that illegal immigrants do have a net cost to state and local governments, but there’s no agreement on how much that net cost is or even the best way to measure it nationally.

Donusia Lipinski is an immigration lawyer in Myrtle Beach. She is very passionate about helping those who have come from other countries illegally.

Joe Dugan is also passionate about his beliefs. He’s the coordinator of the South Carolina Tea Party Coalition and is against illegal immigration.

Lipinski says since President Donald Trump’s inauguration, she’s had endless calls from clients wondering about their futures.

“They’re afraid to go to work; they’re afraid to go to school. The question they ask most is, ‘What am I going to do?'”

Lipinski says her research points to a positive impact from illegal immigrants

“The local economy would lose $1.8 billion. There’s only 2 percent of the workforce in South Carolina that are actually earning the monies. The contributions that they make to the state are tremendous,” she said.

Lipinkski says some of these illegal immigrants are paying taxes. Sometimes making up or buying Social Security numbers, but by doing it, they’re trying to better themselves and their families.

Dugan thinks it’s the exact opposite.

“I think it has a very negative impact, and for a lot of reasons,” he said.

Dugan says the best way to understand his logic is to read Donald J. Trump’s Contract with the American Voter, but his biggest reason is employment.

“We undercut the wages of American people who are here legally that cannot find employment,”Dugan said.

The one thing Dugan and Lipinski do have in common, despite their differences, is the belief in immigration ‘s ability to make our country a better place.

“I’m in favor of immigration. If somebody wants to come here legally and assimilate, I have no problem with it whatsoever,” said Dugan.

“I don’t see immigration as a political issue, it’s about who we are as a people,” said Lipinski.
