Default Re: Cost of giving illegal immigrants path to citizenship could outweigh fiscal benef

If they were already here, then they were already spending here.
If they were already here, then chances are they were already taking advantage of what benefits they could.
Increase in tax revenues, IF they file.
Increase on benefit programs such as Social Security, disability and other tax-contribution benefits for which they have not made the same contributions as a legal citizen

Bottom line, there is no increase to the economy by make illegal immigrants mystically legal.

All it does is condone an illegal action that will cause more to follow suit.
Your life is the sum total of the choices you make.
