Cost of giving illegal immigrants
path to citizenship could
outweigh fiscal benefits

Any immigration reform plan that allows the roughly 11 million individuals now in the United States illegally to stay in the country would bring with it a mix of new revenues and increased costs. And as President Obama and a bipartisan group of senators separately press the issue this week, past studies suggest it is doubtful that the fiscal benefits of such policy changes would outweigh the costs. By legally joining the workforce, the immigrants in question would generate additional and much-needed income tax but also would become eligible for a certain level of government assistance.

I´m trying to grasp desperately the dRATS twisted logic that giving illegal immigrants citizenship suddenly means that they will pay "more" taxes and contribute "more" to paying for 0bamaCare. Every company must have access to that eVerify system and thereby putting the onus on them for who they hire. I know that as a minority, I was hounded for documentation, as well as drug tests to work. Did it ever cross their minds that former company did all those checks?

It´s not 11 million, it is more like 20 to 30 million illegals. We are broke, we cannot afford more free stuff. It will destroy the country within 3 months. Not one crumb left for legal Americans.

The dark won is nothing but a squatter He forces his way into our home, squats his skinny rear and then invites all his hoodlum buddies to ransack and destroy the place. In a country with laws, he would be shot or put behind bars at this point.

Let´s pretend for a moment that the short bus crowd in charge of the GOP right now were to get a clue. Instead of amnesty deals with Schumer, you´d see them talking to the poor, struggling middle class (aka Reagan Democrats) about labor markets, unemployment, and specifically about how illegal immigration hurts the American worker -- unionist or not. You´d also be talking to upperclass Asians and Indians and legal Latino voters about expanding LEGAL immigration for skilled workers. You´d be attacking the De Facto open border policy of this administration. You´d make the moral argument that people who have broken immigration laws, customs law, tax law, labor law, and have falsified official documents should not be put in the front of the line over all those folks trying to play by the rules to get here. And if you were really shrewd you´d talk about how all this cheap illegal labor from Mexico is lining the pockets of corporate democrat donors. But we live in a world of the stupid party, dominated by stupid people like McCain, Gramnesty, Rubio, Sean Hannity, David Brooks, Boehner, McConnell, and so many others.

May as well make them citizens, they already vote. The Democrat/National Socialists made sure of that in the last election. That´s why Obama is "President".

Legalized aliens will not pay anymore taxes then they do now, because most are low income and have a lot of dependents, and instead of paying taxes get a tax refund every year. Once legalized they will become eligible for all the tax credits and that is going to cost the government a lot of money pretty quickly. The only reason that illegal aliens file tax returns now is to get a tax refund and to fraudulently file for tax credits based upon claimed children who are not in the USA.

Once they start putting 11 to 20 million legalized aliens on Obama Care the government will start subsidizing most of them because of their low incomes up to $6,000.00 a family per year. Where is all that money going to come from?

They also intend to open the borders to a huge number of foreign agricultural workers who will do agricultural work for awhile then move on into other industries, be granted citizenship and be replaced by an ever ending stream of new foreign agricultural workers. Since agricultural work is highly seasonal, those foreign workers may only be actually working half of the year, yet they would be allowed to stay in the USA indefinitely. When out of work you can bet that the government will be subsidizing them through a lot of different social welfare programs.

The social security disability program will be a prime target of the legalized alien population once they become eligible, human nature being what it is a good percentage of the legalized alien population will claim all sorts of disabilities to get immediate access to those social security payments.

That there´s any debate on this at all is ludicrous. Number one illegals or former ones will still work under the table to avoid taxes. We´ll still get floods of anchor babies resting comfortably on welfare.We´ll have even more healthcare tourism as people come here for expensive treatments they can´t get back home.All they have to do is show up at an emergency room with cancer or kidney failure and we´ll take good care of them. On the other hand if you´re an 80 year old American,your treatment will be highly in doubt. You´ll see more end of life counseling to get old people off the planet sooner.

Euthanasia will become a big worldwide effort in the next couple years under the guise of over population causing climate change.

FTA ´...also would become eligible for a certain level of government assistance´. Is this writer living in a cave? Illegals start slurping at the taxpayer trough minutes after their arrival. Welfare, food stamps, free medical care, in-state college tuition, we just can´t do enough to make their stay comfortable. Oh, and the Democrats will pull the bus right up to your curb on election day to make sure you vote. Who loves ya baby.

Court Upholds EPA Emission Standards

Washington - A federal appeals court on Tuesday upheld the Environmental Protection Agency’s emission standards for hazardous air pollutants from coal- and oil-fired power plants. In its ruling, the court rejected state and industry challenges to rules designed to clean up mercury, lead, arsenic and other dangerous air pollutants. The new regulations were designed to remove toxins from the air that contribute to respiratory illnesses, birth defects and developmental problems in children. Some industry groups have criticized the standards, saying the EPA was overstating the benefits. Industry groups argued it would cost billions of

You don´t have to go to the Griffith Observatory or other prime watching spot to view the first total lunar eclipse of 2014. Numerous "blood moon" video streams are available on the Web. The Griffith Observatory will be streaming the event live from the Zeiss dome beginning at 9:45 p.m. The Slooh Observatory in the Canary Islands will also be doing a live stream. NASA is also planning a live stream, with experts taking questions from viewers. For those who want to take in the event in person, Griffith Observatory decided to open its doors Monday (it´s usually closed). "We are expecting large crowds," the observatory said in a statement.

Chelsea Clinton open to run

Chelsea Clinton says in a new interview that she´s open to a run for a multitude of offices, from mayor of New York to the U.S. Senate. "I live in a city and a state and a country where I support my elected representatives," Clinton told Fast Company. "If at some point that weren´t the case, and I didn´t support my mayor or my city councilwoman or my congresswoman or either of my senators -- and I'm lucky to live in a state where I have lots of women representing me, you know -- maybe then I'd have to ask and answer the question for myself, and come to a different answer." The answer is pretty similar to a response Clinton, 34,

Even as the cost of prescription drugs has plummeted for many Americans, a small slice of the population is being asked to shoulder more and more of the cost of expensive treatments for diseases like cancer and hepatitis C, according to a report to be released on Tuesday by a major drug research firm. The findings echo the conclusions of two other reports released last week by major pharmacy benefit managers, which predicted that spending on so-called specialty drugs would continue to rise. The report, by the IMS Institute for Healthcare Informatics, also found that consumers’ use of health care — visits to the doctor,

Dozens of teenagers are now tweeting

One dumb teenager is easily excused — but the host of Twitter users currently tweeting bomb threats at major airlines is another story entirely. In case you’ve somehow missed this latest round of Internet idiocy, here’s what went down: Sunday night, a Dutch teenager identified only as “Sarah” infamously tweeted a threat at American Airlines. (“hello my name’s Ibrahim and I’m from Afghanistan. I’m part of Al Qaida and on June 1st I’m gonna do something really big bye,” she wrote. Hilarious!) She then promptly made the account private and insisted it was all a joke — “I’m so stupid, I’m scared,” she wrote at one point —

Guantanamo Bay Navy Base, Cuba - A military judge abruptly recessed the first 9/11 trial hearing of the year Monday after defense lawyers accused the FBI in open court of trying to turn a defense team security officer into a secret informant. If true, the lawyers argued, attorney-client confidentiality might be compromised in the case that seeks to put on trial and execute five men accused of orchestrating the Sept. 11 attacks that killed 3,000 people in New York, Pennsylvania and at the Pentagon. At issue, in part, was the publication in January of prison camp musings by the alleged 9/11 mastermind, Khalid Sheik Mohammed,




Boko Haram rears its head in Nigeria´s

Abuja, Nigeria - Bomb blasts ripped through a bus station in the suburbs of the Nigerian capital today in the largest single attack on Abuja since insurgents began violent operations in 2009. Authorities say 71 people were killed and 124 were injured in a strike on Nyanya Motor Park, a chaotic bus station where commuters board megabuses into the pristine city center for work less than 10 miles away. The blasts in Nigeria´s capital are a direct challenge to the government´s recent assurances that it has managed to contain Boko Haram, Nigeria's militant Islamist group, to the remote northeast of the country. The last attack in Abuja was two years

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it
