If Congress pushes through amnesty, hold onto your wallets. Taxpayers will get robbed and illegal aliens rewarded.
The 11 million illegal aliens who get legalized will then qualify for many taxpayer-funded government programs, including health premium subsidies, the Earned Income Tax Credit and Medicaid. This redistribution of wealth will add billions to the governments red inknot to mention deprive productive Americans of their own money.
To get a handle on the size of amnestys fiscal consequences, consider the impact on a single program: Medicaid.

why do they keep saying it is only 11M, we know better than that
We had amnesty once, in the 1980s, and it didn’t work, and they didn’t do the follow on that they promised us.
Just wait until all their relatives pile across the border.
As Rush says, when you subsidize something, you get more of it. Illegals will be rewarded with billions of dollars' worth of freebies, and THE BORDER IS STILL UNSECURED. There'll be a wave of migrants bearing down on us that'll make the previous decade look small by comparison.
I don't see the US surviving such an invasion.
America will not survive if amnesty is granted. We will become a third world country with parasites draining the host. See your future.
Does ANYONE really believe we have only 11 million illegals here?
Maybe 11 Million just from Mexico!
But if we include the criminals from the rest of So. America, Asia, Europe, Africa, etc, I am sure that over 20 Million will claim “Amnesty” and benifits!
The real number is 4-5 times that figure.
Any that believes 11 million has never been in California.
Illegals make up at least 30% of our population.
