Amnesty to cost trillions
We're assured by those who presume to tell us what is and is not proper thinking that a tsunami of Third-World immigrants will enrich us culturally and economically. No one ever asked why these same people don't have the same effect on the economies of their home countries, but then, that's another of those crimethink notions you're not supposed to ask. But there are those who are warning that the rosy projections of alienist extremists don't add up:
Robert Rector, a senior research fellow with the Heritage Foundation, expects the bipartisan immigration reform proposal, which includes a path to citizenship, will end up costing taxpayers more overtime than the trillion-dollar calculations he testified to during debate over the 2007 immigration reform bill. “[The proposal] seems to be virtually identical to the 2007 bill and would be extremely costly to the U.S. taxpayers,” Rector told The Daily Caller in a Wednesday interview. “Granting amnesty or legal status to illegals will generate costs in Medicare and Social Security alone of $2.5 trillion above any taxes paid in.”But it's worth it, 'cause not only do we get all that vibrancy, we also get to prove we're not biased. And good Americans will pay any price for that.
