There is one big difference today; this time we know the cost, and that’s truly scary. Robert Rector of the Heritage Foundation estimates that this amnesty plan will cost the U.S. taxpayers “$2.5 Trillion" in” because the majority of illegal aliens who would eventually be legalized by the proposal are uneducated and poor. At least 60 percent are high school dropouts so they live below the poverty level and will be eligible to receive many of our 79 varieties of welfare handouts.
The entire plan should be illegal because it violates an explicit federal law that anyone granted entry into the U.S. must be financially self-supporting and not likely to become a public charge. What good are promises of future enforcement when the Administration covertly undermines laws now in place?”
