Study: Illegal Alien Households Would Get $3 in Benefits for Every $1 Paid Under Amnesty Bill

May 6, 2013 - 12:11 PM

Heritage Foundation Pres. Jim DeMint said that that unlawful immigrant households will receive $3 in benefits for every $1 paid into taxes under the current immigration bill being debated by Congress:

"Our expert, Robert Rector, is one of the nation's leading authorities on government social programs and he has calculated that the average unlawful immigrant household will receive three dollars  in benefits for every one dollar paid under this amnesty provision.

"Robert's research is based on methodology also used by the National Academy of Sciences. Taxpayers are right to be cautious about another large, incomprehensible bill like Obamacare, which created numerous new programs while politicians still falsely claim that it would lower our deficit."
