    hte study does NOT say that to "pay taxes", they are identity thieves.

    nor does it say that they place other burdens on the health care system.

    it's all a crock.

    What these studies don't tell you is that ten years out things change dramatically. And 13 years out is when this wave of amnesty recipients will be eligible for full benefits.
    They work the low end of the economic spectrum and will be takers, not givers, once they age and are eligible.
    But this is a nice little article during "reform" season, giving false comfort to those who believe amnesty is the right thing to do.
    In the interest of full disclosure, it ought to be said that the Deseret News is in favor of an amnesty plan, at least according to Mark Willis, proud signer of the Utah Compact. Perhaps that explains why this article was published in the first place.
    Of course, an article like this explaining the Heritage Foundation's study might be helpful. I know you covered the study some on May 6th, but it was filled with a fair amount of political backstopping and commentary. The style and tone were completely different.
    Your bias is showing here.
