We've put together a graphic that explains exactly how immigration reform helps to save nearly $1 trillion, and we need your help to share it

This week, we got some great news: The Congressional Budget Office, the nonpartisan experts who analyze the financial impact of legislation, believes that Senate immigration bill will reduce the deficit by almost $1 trillion over the next two decades.

We've put together a graphic that explains exactly how this works, and we need your help to share it.
