The High Price of Obama’s Amnesty
$585 million dollars
That is the estimate of what Obama’s new amnesty will cost the American taxpayer. This back door plan, put into action by imperial edict without any input from Congress, is just another nail in the coffin of our economy. This past week thousands of children of illegal immigrants were granted the right to apply for “deferred action” in order to stay in this country and sign up for employment opportunities. Starting August 15th, illegal aliens up to the age of 30 who meet certain requirements can begin submitting their applications that will allow them to remain in the country for a period of two years, with indefinite renewals. They may also apply for work authorization, adding an estimated 2 million job-seekers to the workforce when we have record unemployment.

Really? How does Congress allow this to happen? They just ignore this issue and sweep it under the rug hoping that the American people are on summer vacation and won’t notice that we have just opened wide the doors to 2 million illegal’s! Once again they let this President steam roll over them. It seems like they have forgotten that the Dream Act was defeated as recently as 2010.
What are the unintended consequences of this amnesty? Well, let’s see. Not only will it cost the American taxpayers an (estimated) $585 million dollars just to implement the program, but on top of that there are millions or perhaps billions more. Once they become permanent legal residents the floodgates open. Medicare, Social Security, food stamps, education, not to mention the earned income tax credit that would cost tens of billions annually. This will also encourage even more illegal immigration when others figure out how to work the system.
