Skip to comments.There’s no such thing as a free immigration amnesty ($6.3 Trillion)

Amnesty, and particularly citizenship, for people who broke the law to get here is bad policy because it rewards law breakers and advantages them over law abiders.
Its also very costly, as a study released by the Heritage Foundation demonstrates, The Fiscal Cost of Unlawful Immigrants and Amnesty to the U.S. Taxpayer:
Unlawful immigration and amnesty for current unlawful immigrants can pose large fiscal costs for U.S. taxpayers. Government provides four types of benefits and services that are relevant to this issue:
Direct benefits. These include Social Security, Medicare, unemployment insurance, and workers compensation.
Means-tested welfare benefits. There are over 80 of these programs which, at a cost of nearly $900 billion per year, provide cash, food, housing, medical, and other services to roughly 100 million low-income Americans. Major programs include Medicaid, food stamps, the refundable Earned Income Tax Credit, public housing, Supplemental Security Income, and Temporary Assistance for Needy Families.
Public education. At a cost of $12,300 per pupil per year, these services are largely free or heavily subsidized for low-income parents.
Population-based services. Police, fire, highways, parks, and similar services, as the National Academy of Sciences determined in its study of the fiscal costs of immigration, generally have to expand as new immigrants enter a community; someone has to bear the cost of that expansion.
The cost of these governmental services is far larger than many people imagine. For example, in 2010, the average U.S. household received $31,584 in government benefits and services in these four categories.
Bottom line $6.3 trillion.
Obama is like an inverted Midas.
Everything he does, costs money.
My money (taxes).
Makes you wonder how much of the free-shit army is fed financed illegal aliens. But that’s okay, they’re just here to do the jobs, smuggle the drugs, and plot the insurrections that Americans won’t do. Hope those free-trader, illegal alien employers are well armed, because they’ll be outnumbered pretty soon.
and while Rubio is saying his bill needs changes and is asking for other Pols suggestion Schumer says NO changes are needed and it MUST be passed ASAP>
Hmm where did we hear that before
and how is that working for 0dumbo
God bless all the Republicans in the House and any Dem who will face reality
Sure there is a way that is free. If Mexico likes the US so much, they should just apply for statehood to the US. Would create tens of thousands of jobs and tax revenues for the US.
Our military must complete an EIR for basic maneuvers, I wonder what the EIR would look like for 40 million new people?
Of course there is a cost. An enormous, insurmountable cost. There are NOT just 11-12 million of these mexicans; there are near 50 million. The relatives they will ‘sponsor’ once they become ‘normalized’ as Herr Rubio puts it number probably double that number.
This is a financial disaster greater than even Obama’s 100 Million in 85+ entitlement programs, I believe. All this for a Rubio that has drunk the tea or so drunk on his own political good-fortune aura, he is giddy with disregard.
The article mentions Sen. Dick Durbin. If you know anyone, who lives in Illinois, please tell them that he can run in 2014 and that a conservative Republican, Chad Koppie, announced for that race. Chad says that Congress should triple the fines for employers who hire illegal aliens. That would usually deter employers from hiring illegals. When illegals can’t get jobs, they’ll leave the U.S. If any money is colllected, from the fines, it will be used to build a brck wall, along the Mexican border.
Rubio, like the phony Barack Obama, can sure pick em proof of which is in the selection of a Soros henchman Cesar Conda. Rubio is now rotting at the head and his credibility now sinks by the hour!
Instead of enforcing the laws against illegal immigration Rubio and his NWO crony Conda attempt to foist this 844 page bill loaded with non- immigration pork spending that adds 6.1 trillion in money the central socialist government steals from us in order to fund this and other swinish, gluttonous totally worthless programs. Sounds like a left wing hard core Democrat wrote the bill that the gullible Rubio claims as his effort.
