Despite billions of dollars in new Border Patrol agents and fencing, the Senates immigration bill will still only stop between a third and half of all illegal immigrants, according to the latest analysis the Congressional Budget Office released Tuesday morning.
Backers have said they guaranteed that the bill, which passed the Senate on a 68-32 vote last week, would stop a new wave of illegal immigration, which they said was the necessary precondition for legalizing the current illegal population.
But the CBOs analysis says illegal immigration will continue and be at least 50 percent of what it would otherwise have been.
The nonpartisan budget agency estimates that the net inflow would be reduced by between one- third and one-half compared with the projected net inflow under current law. That effect would not be immediate, as it would take several years before [the Department of Homeland Security] could hire the full number of Border Patrol agents called for in the act, according to the report.
Even though it doesnt stop illegal immigration, the bills additional border security is an improvement over a previous version, which CBO analysts said would only stop about a quarter of illegal immigrants. The difference works out to about 800,000 fewer illegal immigrants by 2023 than would have entered the country under the original bill.
