Allowing 2 million illegal Aliens “Dreamers” to stay here in the U.S. would cost US taxpayers $25.9 billion over the next ten years, the Congresssional Budget Office said in a report released Friday.
Dreamers are the prospective beneficiaries of the DREAM Act (Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors), legislation introduced in the U.S. Senate earlier this year to provide a pathway to citizenship for some illegal Aliens.
They would include those who’ve participated in DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals), received temporary protected status, or have fulfilled certain educational requirements.
The report says that of the 11 to 12 million illegal Aliens currently in the U.S. (Way more than that) some 3.25 million would be eligible for the DREAM Act. However, the report estimates that only 2 million would apply, 1.6 million of whom would earn legal status over the next 10 years. A remaining 1 million would become citizens with that same time period, which would allow them to sponsor relatives, the report states.
DACA, originally implemented in 2012 under Obama through executive order, allowed individuals who entered the United States illegally as minors to receive a two-year period of deferred action and elligibility for a work permit.
By 2017 approximately 800,000 individuals – or Dreamers – were taking advantage of DACA. The Trump administration announced its intention to ax DACA earlier this year.
We must end DACA now and except no Amnesty. Any negotiation with DACA, Amnesty or Sanctuary Cities and States, only rewards those who have broken our laws, advertises our weakness for enforcing our laws, gives Sanctuary to criminals and worst of all funds everything with American Tax-Dollars!. Call your Congressman today and say NO!.
