…then why is it going to be passed?
The Senate’s immigration bill will only reduce illegal immigration by about 25 percent a year, according to a new Congressional Budget Office report, Stephen Dinan will report Tuesday in The Washington Times.
The bill’s new guest-worker program could lead to at least 500,000 more illegal immigrants within a decade, said the report from the CBO, which said in its official cost estimate that it assumes some future temporary workers will overstay their time in the plan, adding up to a half-million by 2017 and 1 million by 2027.
What’s not taken into consideration here is the idea that granting any sort of amnesty to the illegals already here will encourage more illegal immigration. After all, if you tell your friends that you got away with stealing candy from the candy store they’re likely to steal some candy too.
