Immigrants — both legal and illegal — may be adding as much as $10 billion to the economy each year and have little negative effect on job opportunities for most citizens, the National Research Council said, "It's true that some Americans are now paying more taxes because of immigration, and native- born Americans without high school educations have seen their wages fall slightly because of the competition sparked by lower- skilled newly arrived immigrants," said James Smith, chairman of the panel that produced the report. "But the vast majority of Americans are enjoying a healthier economy as the result of the increased supply of labor and lower prices that result from immigration," said Smith, a senior economist at the Rand Corp. based in Santa Monica, Calif. Immigrants may add as much as $10 billion to the economy each year, Smith said. The study came under immedi- at£ fire from Rep. Lamar Smith, R- Texas, chairman of the House immigration subcommittee. He accused the authors of overemphasizing the positive aspects of immigration and minimizing the cost.

The Associated Press An explosive charge blows apart an old French Boeing 747 during Saturday's test at Bruntingthorpe Aerodrome, north of London. 747 blown up in anti- terrorism test French jet should have survived three blasts in reinforced cargo areas By EDITH M. LEDERER The Associated Press BRUNTINGTHORPE, England — Researchers blew up a jumbo jet on an airport tarmac Saturday to test new British and U.S. technology aimed at minimizing damage during mid-air bombings. It was an effort to determine whether reinforced cargo areas could help a plane withstand terrorist strikes like the 1988 explosion that destroyed Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland. The initial verdict: A bombproof plane is a long way off, but engineers can partially insulate cargo areas. "We're just making the job harder and harder for the terrorists," said Ken Hacker, a U.S. Federal Aviation Administration research manager. U.S. officials also monitored the explosion's sound to compare it with a cockpit recording of the final moments of TWA Flight 800; the cause of that flight's explosion off New York's coast last July is still undetermined. The guinea pig in Saturday's experiment was an old French jumbo jet wired with four bombs to explode simultaneously under warm, hazy skies at Bruntingthorpe Aerodrome, about 110 miles north of London. As expected, the controlled explosion in an unprotected rear area tore a huge hole in the fuselage, sending up clouds of debris and showering bits of luggage onto the tarmac. But the three other blasts — testing reinforced cargo areas — shattered windows and left a small crack but did not tear the outer skin of the plane. "We're just making the job harder and harder for the terrorists." Ken Hacker research manager lor FAA Engineers, who began assessing damage even as firefighters surrounded the plane, said neither the broken windows nor the crack should have prevented the plane from flying. But Richard Wright, a spokesman for Britain's Defense Evaluation and Research Agency, said: "It will be a long time before we discover the exact effects of what's happened." The retired Air France Boeing 747-100 had been pressurized to simulate flying at about 30,000 feet, and the bombs were about triple the size of the device that destroyed the 1988 Pan Am flight. That bombing, which killed 270 people, spurred new research on improving safety against air saboteurs in both the United States and Britain. The British research agency developed two of the ideas tested Saturday, and the FAA brought the third. In one British test, the cargo container was slightly strengthened and eight inches of foam padded the space between the container and fuselage shell. In the second, a flexible lining similar to body armor was inserted along the walls and floor of the cargo area. Officials from the FBI and U.S. National Transportation Safety Board were on hand for Saturday's test. But NTSB spokesman Peter Goelz said their observations may be of little benefit, given that the Flight 800 explosion was in a different section of the plane.
