6 Specifically, freedom of mobility has been granted at this time to citizens of the 10 new EU members by Finland, Greece, Great Britain, Ireland, Portugal, Spain and Sweden.  According to the treaties signed when the eastern European countries joined, their citizens should have complete freedom of movement, including the rights to settle and work, throughout the EU space by 2011.  See Joanne von Selm and Eleni Tsolakis, “EU enlargement of the limits of freedom,” Migration Information Source (May 1, 2004):  http://www.migrationinformation.org/Feature/display.cfm?id=224.

13 Specifically, the National Research Council report suggested that immigration brought an annual net positive gain to the US economy of about $10 billion in the late 1990s, a drop in the bucket of the total national economy;  see the National Research Council, The New Americans:  Economic, Demographic and Fiscal Effects of Immigration (Washington, DC:  National Academy Press, 1997).
