It's all OK if you can hypothosise a case where you want people in your country (legally) but don't want them to be able to legally work. So if you want to force the foreigners to pump their savings into your economy while your own people still have jobs, it seems to make sense?

But if you allow them to work then you'll have a larger workforce which, unless you have a massive unemployment problem, will mean that you have the potential to fulfill more jobs and hence grow the economy.

This is doubly so because (legal) immigrants tend to be skilled workers which are usually at a shortage in the workforce.
