The Real Cost Of Those 'Low Skilled' Immigrants

Robert Rector breaks down the cost of low-skilled immigrants in America: $1,000,000 price tag per immigrant.

Make no mistake about it: Amnesty and Continued Low Skill Immigration Will Substantially Raise Welfare Costs and Poverty.

Don't like the Senate immigration bill but you want border enforcement? No problem: Senate Immigration Bill Not Needed for Law Enforcement.

There already exist on the books numerous laws that, if enforced in a targeted manner, would discourage illegal immigration and the employment of undocumented labor, as well as send the signal that such activities will no longer be overlooked. Recent actions by the Administration prove that reasonable enforcement measures (well short of massive deportations) can reduce the number of illegal border crossings. In addition, Congress can take a number of modest actions that would strengthen enforcement, both at the border and in the workplace.

None of these measures require the kind of comprehensive legislation that was recently proposed in the Senate. The recently revived Senate immigration reform bill, which would grant immediate legal status to the 12 million or more people that are unlawfully present in the United States, would work at cross purposes with enforcement efforts: encouraging more illegal immigration; overburdening federal agencies; and complicating the task of upholding the rule of law.

What's Next for Immigration Reform?
