(CNSNews.com) Granting amnesty to illegal immigrants would cost $6.3 trillion, according to a new report by the Heritage Foundation. Unlawful immigration and amnesty for current unlawful immigrants can pose large fiscal costs for U.S. taxpayers, states the report by Robert Rector and Jason Richwine, Ph.D.
Not only would the federal deficit increase, but the cost of benefits and services to millions of newly minted citizens would reach nearly $10 trillion.
Over a lifetime, the former unlawful immigrants together would receive $9.4 trillion in government benefits and services and pay $3.1 trillion in taxes, the report states. They would generate a lifetime fiscal deficit (total benefits minus total taxes) of $6.3 trillion.
Rector and Richwine took into account direct benefits, such as Social Security, Medicare, unemployment insurance, and workers compensation, as well as means-tested welfare benefits, public education costs and population-based services in reaching their findings.
Heritage President Jim Demint will unveil the new study at a press conference at 11:30 on Monday.
This bloated socialist central government is implementing the Cloward - Piven Strategy:forcing political change through orchestrated crisis. The "Cloward-Piven Strategy" seeks to hasten the fall of capitalism by overloading the government bureaucracy with a flood of impossible demands, thus pushing society into crisis and economic collapse. Meanwhile we stand idly by dithering in uncertainty not knowing whether to shi- or go blind.
Wondering if that number includes the immense growth of many government agencies to deal with the sudden influx of people. I’m projecting it’s going to be at least 100 to 200 thousand new government workers just to start.
In the wake of this analysis, you cannot be a conservative, libertarian or constitutionalist and support illegal immigration.
Well, there go my dreams. There goes everyone’s dreams who had hoped for a better America.
America as we knew it will be GONE. I don’t know who these people think they’re fooling ...they aren’t coming to any sort of utopia. They’ll be bringing all their violence and disease and dysfunction right here, along with their votes.
I guess we’re just going to be one gigantic north American cesspool bloc, with the extreme rich and the rest of us extremely poor.
You can’t be a citizen and support it.
One of the big themes proponents have repeatedly stated in the ‘big lie’ fashion is the benefits should they become citizens. The lie was big, the lie was bold but the lie was easily seen for what it was.
Rubio outright lied about this aspect of the bill going on show after show repeating his big lie.
They could of crafted a bill that excludes low wage workers likely to drain more taxpayer $$$$, but Dems would never agree to that. Dems and unions want (demand) more and more poor dependent on government voting. They cry about too many poor in this country but they want more and more as long as they vote.
This same problem was pointed out by Heritage in 2007.
Rubio is a disgraceful mistake.
Right on target, Jabba.
He sure took on a risky game in being the front man to try to get this thing passed through Senate with both parties support. Must of believed the MSM hype that ‘Republicans need this’ they repeat over and over.
A few weeks ago he was on five Sunday shows but he is no-where to be found now.
EXHIBIT A Vote-crazed pols have given a "blank check" to lobbyists who colluded w/ US politicans to write this ethnic poison---$150 million immediately for organizations to advertise citizenship opportunities, to help stupid illegal immigrants sign up to become citizens----grants to public and private nonprofit groups for programs that help people apply for provisional immigrant status---assistance with completing applications and gathering proof of identification---legal help and public-awareness campaigns that tell dumbo illegals about the eligibility and benefits of registered immigration status."
The nonpartisan Center for Immigration Services calls the money slush funds that tax dollars go to the same groups that helped craft the legislation and that the spending appears to have no cap or oversight. Its virtually a blank check, Jon Feere, a Center for Immigration Services legal policy analyst, told FoxNews.com. And the groups that helped draft this bill can now give themselves taxpayer dollars.
EXHIBIT B Clearly, some (or all) of the reform provisions were written by salivating Third Worlders--and their Fifth Columns on US soil----greedily contemplating exchanging massive foreign aid checks for latino votes.
LYING IN WAIT FOR TAX DOLLARS---IMPOVERISHED THIRD WORLD COUNTRIES W/ PRESSURE GROUPS INSIDE THE US (here illegally): Argentina, Belize, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominica Republic, Ecuador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Puerto Rico (stateside), Salvador, Spain, Uruguay, Venezuela.
EXHIBIT C Taxpayers demand politicans come clean WRT quid pro quo sub rosa deals made with impoversihed foreign governments salivating about trading latino votes for frpeign aid. EXAMPLE: Even neutral travel brochures belittle the corrupt Dominican Republic govt---- that provides no safety net for its teaming impoverished pepulation---and that the DR relies on the $$$ billion dollars a year its illegal population on US soil sends back home.
FOREIGN MEDDLING WILL INCREASE The DR govt is already meddling in US affairs---trying to save the degenerate *** of US Sen Menendez (D-NJ) caught in shady deals that involves DR port cargo used for drug distribution (as if the cartels haven't figured this out already).
EXHIBIT D AYE VOTES FOR AMNESTY WILL NOT COME CHEAP--- WHAT KIND OF FOREIGN FINANCIAL DEALS will vote-crazed US politicians get in exchange for yes votes on amnesty? And who are their co-conspirators?
LET'S LOOK AT THE ETHNIC SOLIDARITY TAX-EXEMPTS (1) The National Association of Latino Electoral and Appointed Officials, (2) La Raza, (3) Voto Latino, (4) The Congressional Hispanic Caucus, (5) state Hispanic Federations,(6) latino PAC's, etc ,etc, etc (all pushing free-for-all amnesty)
We need to see these n/p's financial records-----copies of (1) checks, (2) wire transfers, (3) bank account statements, (4) invoices, (5) bills, (6) delivery tickets, (7) correspondence including e-mail, employment contracts, loan agreements, (8) any other books or records.
Scrutinize n/p bank accounts for suspicious activites: (A) large deposits, (B) funds transferred from one account into another, (C) request for withdrawals, (D) offsore activity. Also lists of monies n/p paid to (a) brokers, sub-brokers, (b) family members, (c) mortgage brokers, (d) financial managers, and, (e) real estate agents, brokers, and developers, and the like.
REMEDY Taxpayers could sue banks holding tax-exempt monies that cover-up tax fraud. Under the Bank Secrecy Act passed by Congress, banks are required to establish, implement and maintain programs designed to detect and report suspicious activity indicative of money laundering, tax evasion, govt fraud and other financial crimes.
The Bank Secrecy Act was enacted to protect the tax-paying public from harm by identifying and detecting criminal enterprises, including those engaged in govt fraud, tax evasion, and money laundering," explains the IRS Criminal Investigation Unit.
Just wait till all their enormous families arrive to freeload after the illegals get amnesty. These budget-busing numbers are way too low.
Thanks for the ping.
1. The purpose of immigration is to benefit the American People. All this emphasis on the 11 million is misplaced. How do the proposed laws benefit the American People?
2. All these progressives (donkey and elephant) pushed citizenship for the "undocumented Americans". Has anyone actually asked the illegal invaders if they want American citizenship? And further, has anyone asked them if they want to become Americans, assimilated to the American culture and traditions?
Obviously, neither question is ever, ever asked. The American People have to start asking these questions, maybe in Townhall meetings or on the street of these politicians and record the session. It would obviously be devastating to have this on video.
