Report: Across-The-Board Amnesty Would Cost U.S. Over $2 Trillion


Family members and friends of Perla Morales Luna gather in front of the Otay Mesa Detention Center Tuesday, March 20, 2018, in San Diego. Morales Luna, a Mexican woman whose videotaped arrest for being in the U.S. illegally gained widespread attention online is being released on her own recognizance by an immigration judge in Southern California.

A new report shows the high costs taxpayers will suffer if illegal immigrants in the U.S. are given across-the-board amnesty.
Steven Kopits, president of Princeton Policy Advisers, says amnesty for 6 million undocumented immigrants translates to 2 trillion dollars in additional spending.
The number takes into account the price of providing amnesty recipients with education, health care and other government benefits, such as social security and medicare.
His calculation is in line with another study put out by the Federation of American Immigration Reform which said the costs from illegal immigrants totals 135 billion dollars per year.
