Congressional budget analysts said Tuesday that legislation to overhaul the nations immigration laws would cut close to $1 trillion from the federal deficit over the next two decades and lead to more than 10 million new legal residents in the country.

Get this, folks, we’re supposed to believe that giving amnesty and welfare to millions of more people will result in MORE money going to the government and LESS flowing out of D.C.
In Fantasy Land.
This is the most absurd claim ever from CBO. Clueless Bastard Oddfellows.
cover for RINOs....
The study, which covers all immigrants, legal and illegal, and their U.S.-born children younger than 18, found that immigrants tend to make economic progress by most measures the longer they live in the U.S. but lag well behind native-born Americans on factors such as poverty, health insurance coverage and homeownership.
The study, based on 2010 and 2011 census data, found that 43 percent of immigrants who have been in the U.S. at least 20 years were using welfare benefits, a rate that is nearly twice as high as native-born Americans and nearly 50 percent higher than recent immigrants.
so more amnesty from republicans helps our country how again?
Why not?! Nancy Pelosi believes that unemployment checks are an economic stimulus. /sarc
Obamacare is gonna cut the deficit, too.
Just for giggles, I wonder if anyone has bothered to inform these “undocumented Democrats” that once they become legal residents they will be required to file a US income tax return on their world wide income and their employers will be required to withhold income (maybe), social security and medicare taxes from their wages.
Also, they will be required to continue to file those returns if they return to Mexico, Honduras, Guatemala or wherever until they renounce their residency or citizenship (if it comes to that).
At one time American citizenship was a prized gift bestowed on the blessed by birth or naturalization. Once the Democrat totalitarian vision comes to fruition, it may become the leech that doesn’t turn loose until the last drop is drained.
Give each illegal a new home and a new car.....I am sure that would REALLY cut the deficit!/s
Amnesty is not for the 40,000,000 aborted taxpayers who would have been within our ranks paying taxes and buying stuff, but instead for the 40,000,000 Mexicans as economic proxies.
I demand these ‘analysts’ come forward and identify themselves, immediately. We pay their salaries, we have a right to publicly shame them.
As Sean Hannity told us, the CBO is the “gold standard.”
This sure is humor.
Just as ObamaCare was to make insurance less expensive by adding 10 million freeloaders to the rolls, Amnesty will slash the deficit by adding 30 million. Why don’t we import all of South America and balance the budget? This is Pelosi-level logic.
Wouldn’t it be a hooty if we could get the invaders to realize that the puppet masters are giving them amnesty so they can be exploited to pay for black welfare?
The illegals’ll never buy it, because they know damn well that their version of the American Dream doesn’t include paying taxes, it means getting a check back every April 15.
If the 0bamas would just sea quester one vacation a month, the federal deficit could be reduced by 177.3 billion dollars over the next five decades.
let mostly third world immigrants in and their families on welfare and that cuts the debt,.
you can’t even make this crap up anymore and I HATE THE MEDIA and the sheep which follow them
Hannity is an idiot and who can’t mention social issues due to him being a coward and follows the establishment line
This is definitely a semi-news/ semi-satire thingy. But you just can’t make this stuff up.
