The Heritage Foundation’s new report  estimates that an amnesty like the Gang of Eight’s immigration bill offers would cost U.S. taxpayers $6.3 trillion.
Heritage President Jim DeMint said on Fox News this morning, “There’s no way that you can look at this and say that it’s good for the American taxpayer, and that includes immigrants who are here lawfully.”
“You can’t get around these costs. Congress is not considering the cost,” DeMint said. “It’s unfair to those who came here lawfully.”
