America will decline without immigrants.America will definitely decline
WITH illegal aliens.
The first comment above is a valid one. Allowing the right and legal types of
immigrants will and does help America. But continuing to allow the
nearly uncontrolled influx of uneducated and unskilled illegal aliens... and
then granting them amnesty citizenship would become a tremendous economic burden
on America. They would take far more than they would ever contribute in their
use of welfare and numerous other entitlements our government currently offers.
The Heritage Foundation recently made a valid study and assessment
that the net cost to America by following the amnesty path would create a net
drain on our economy of over $6.2 trillion over the next few decades. And given
our current world record federal deficit, that is something we could ill afford.
@tatorsI was right with until you invoked the Heritage
Foundation."...The Heritage Foundation recently made a valid
study and assessment that the net cost to America by following the amnesty path
would create a net drain on our economy of over $6.2 trillion over the next few
decades...".The words Heritage Foundation and valid have become
a contradiction in terms since the advent of former Republican Senator from
South Carolina Jim De Mint. From the Heritage Foundation
website..."...Amnesty Will Cost U.S. Taxpayers at Least $2.6
Trillion...".But hey...6.2 or 2.6...A trillion here,
a trillion there, and pretty soon we're talking some serious change...
To There you go again:You can be right with me again if you will
continue doing a bit more research. The Heritage Foundation actually did release
a 102 page report on May 6th detailing how enacting the proposed immigration
package involving a form of amnesty will cost our government a net amount of
$6.3 trillion (even more than the 6.2 I stated earlier). It was derived by those
effected receiving $9.4 trillion in government benefits over their lifetimes and
paying back only $3.1 trillion in taxes. The math is not rocket science. Your
2.6 trillion is a bogus number.And yes, we are already talking
serious change here. It would take a stack of $1000 bills 67 miles high to equal
just $1 trillion. $6.3 trillion would take a stack over 400 miles high, which is
a distance approximate to the space station and back. Very serious change!
Such confidence.Truth is! This world would be in total
dictatorship, and poverty without this country.
I agree with Jesse Jackson for once. "Stay out the Bushes". Iam a
Republican, but I do not want to see another Bush in the White House.
We've had enough of that family. And this Bush, in pandering to the
illegals, said that they are better than native born Americans at starting a
business, and having families. Wow. I didn't realize we native born
Americans were such losers. Maybe we should just turn our country over to
Mexico since they are obviously doing so much better than we are.
@ Tators: Are you talking about the "valid" Heritage Foundation study
based on the claim by one of the authors that Latinos naturally have a lower IQ
than Caucasians? And the other author admits they never fully read the proposal
the study addresses? The study that performed a cost/benefit analysis that
ignored all benefits while claiming unavailable costs?The study that
has been so thoroughly debunked that not even the Heritage Foundation uses it
anymore?That "valid" study?Not really a good
This country is currently in decline, and with many immigrants, so Mr. Bush is
