Immigration_Protest_Miami_68880.jpg-3cf0f_c0-171-4415-2745_s885x516Legalizing 2 million illegal immigrant “Dreamers” would cost the government $25.9 billion over the next decade, as those now-legal people would claim more tax, education and other benefits they haven’t been able to get before, the Congressional Budget Office said Friday.

The CBO also said newly legalized Dreamers would sponsor 80,000 more immigrants to enter the country as part of “chain migration.”

Immigrant-rights activists have argued that legalizing Dreamers would be a financial boon to the country, but the CBOand the Joint Committee on Taxation suggested otherwise, saying that while they would pay somewhat higher taxes in to the government, they would take far more out of it.

The findings could be a blow to activists who have demanded the bill be included in any year-end spending deal. Congress already struggles to find offsets for other spending, and digging a hole more than $25 billion deeper could be difficult.

    I greatly resent this legalization since my parents worked here on permits for many, many years before PAYING for the honor and privilege of becoming citizens. My sister and I were not even consider prior to them becoming citizens. It would be very true as it is now that once one becomes a citizen he acquires another 50 relatives all of a sudden even though the relatives pays for being sponsored. I know as I live among them and hear the conversations.

    The cost the CBO projects for everything it studies has and will continue to be massively under estimated based on the history of their previous reports on ObamaCare alone. The real cost of the Dreamers will be to the destruction of our form of government due to the voting practices of these liberals. as the previous two posters have mentioned. Even the number of people involved is off by a few hundred percent. Two million isn’t even close. Shut down all immigration until ICE gets a REAL handle on the numbers. Immigration is now the most expensive and most destructive action allowed by the US.

    The Fascist Democrat Globalists have been flooding our nation with illegal’s and all for their votes. The Democrats want a Fascist Islamic Socialist World Government with no borders, no American law and no US Constitution. Vote the Democrats and the RINO’s out or we will look like Europe soon.

      Did you know most of these people are closer in their views to the republicans then the democrats and with a little work could be brought into the republican party. They tend to be pro life, Christian, capitalists, anti bilingual who would fit nicely into the conservative party. The only problem is the republicans need a foil and they are it. These families came here to work with no hope of getting anything for free. To bad the Republicans haven’t welcomed them since they share so much.

        Eres muy pendejo y tienes la “p” en la frente. With all the “free” stuff the demonc rats are now giving them and now want to include citizenship why would they vote/become republicans.

  • Well thats just dandy, Load each of them up with $500.00 pesos of real mexican money and some fruit. Put them on a bus to Tiajuana, and if you citizens of America want to further help them send that money to the mexican government. I have no doubt that they will make sure that they get all the help you send Dreamers / DACA / Lottery Immigration.The illegals have nothing to say about what happens in America.We now have enough people here in the USA that need training for jobs that arent even invented yet. They need the help with staying alive. We wont need anymore labor help for at least 2 decades. Its time we americans blessed ourselves by saying = Merry Christmas. Send Cinco de Mayo back where it came from.
