Arguments to restrict immigration on the grounds that immigrants will take domestic jobs ignore the fact that immigrants, once employed, will earn and spend money on goods and services, creating new jobs that will more than make up for the old ones they took.

Which of the following is an assumption on which the argument depends?

(A) The immigrants will not send most of the money that they earn back to their hometowns
(B) Studies show that large scale inflow of immigrants invariably leads to an increase in the incidence of crime in that city
(C) The immigrants will not subsequently get their families to also join them in the new city
(D) Immigrants generally tend to save most of the money that they earn
(E) Opponents of immigration are not opposed to immigration for reasons other than loss of jobs
[Reveal] Spoiler: OA

A and D are the only options within the scope of the argument. D however weakens the argument. If people tend to save their earnings, then they would not be creating new jobs. Hence A is clearly the answer.

Kudos Plesae... If my post helped.

That would be something like "Opponents of immigration might be opposed to immigration for reasons other than loss of jobs." Which is still irrelevant to the argument
