So Much for the Idea That Dreamers Pay More in Taxes than they Get in Benefits
The Congressional Budget Office put out a report a few days back that stated the cost for allowing the two million DACA illegals to stay in the country. This Obama era scheme gave benefits and work permits to about two million illegal aliens, many that haven't been children in many years. The report stated that the cost to taxpayers would be 25.9 billion dollars, mainly in Medicaid, food stamps, education funding, and other programs. Not counting the cost to the states of course. In the same time frame these illegals would return a mere .9 billion, less than one 25th of the cost of keeping them in the U.S.
