Mass immigration costs govt. $296 billion a year, depresses wages: National Academy of Sciences

Image result for no more refugees or illegal aliensImmigration is a massive drain on the government, with immigrants taking as much as $296 billion more in benefits than they pay in taxes, according to a new authoritative study by the National Academies of Science, Engineering and Medicine, which found the record level of newcomers is straining the country.

The report suggests that migrants depress wages for Americans, at least in the beginning, and particularly hit workers who have to compete for jobs.

And the new arrivals aren’t assimilating as well as past waves of immigrants, struggling to learn English and to raise their wages as quickly as previous migrants, the academy said in a final draft of the report, which The Washington Times obtained.

The reasons for the slowdown in assimilation aren’t clear, but one possibility — particularly when it comes to difficulties learning English — is the heavy presence of Mexican immigrants during the previous two decades, the academy said.

The report, due to be released Thursday afternoon, challenges many of the assumptions concerning how well the U.S. can handle the current levels of immigration, which run about 1 million a year, including both legal and illegal arrivals.

Defenders of immigration, including the White House, argue that legalizing illegal immigrants and increasing legal immigration will earn billions of dollars in new revenue.

That's on us to stop, nobody is D.C. Understands that is our money!

It's theirs as long as we do nothing to stop them from spending it! You are right!

One of their main objectives is being completed, to bankrupt the treasuries and to depress the incomes of the hard working Americans who pay the taxes. Double whacko whammy insane/hussian/oblamea. dc dictator in cheef, leader of isis/gihad.

every one in this congress is CORRUPT this is why we are in this horrible mess. These parasites are killing us

Ailinsky 101, just look at the rules for radicals and you got the Obama, Clinton playbook. Clinton had worked her whole political life to displace good high paying jobs. Just look at her record in the Senate. Look up the India connection. The unions should be massing to Trump for her back stabbings.

And Congress won't get off of their asses and act.

They don't care. They tax and spend.

You forgot; exempt themselves from the rules

1. They have no intention of assimilating.

2. Who is paying for them to be brought from their country to here? 

3. NAFTA when passed, it was already known that it would not work without a balanced wage for every country. Buying and selling is the objective and that has to do with Governments and manufactures getting rich. It has nothing to do with the slaves who will do the work!

4. Destroying the boarders will lessen the cost of shipping and the time it takes to get the product to the buyer. Destroying any power of the people to govern themselves. It will come down to... you get in line or else we bring out the whips. The whips will be... no buying or selling without their governing the process from beginning to end. 

One last thing... it costs the "Government" nothing... we tax payers are footing the bill for government and anything the government does. From playing in outer space to paving roads and installing camera's to watch what we do and hiring people to listen to our conversations. It's on the tax payers dime.

This is globalization for ya....no borders = excessive burden on productive countries.

Wouldn't it be cost affective to simply build them all a house in their home country?  The democrats don't seem to have a problem buying democrat votes with taxpayer money.  

Defenders of immigration, including the White House, argue that legalizing illegal immigrants and increasing legal immigration will earn thousands upon thousands of new Democratic VOTERS!!!

ALERT ALERT

Joe Biden Vows: Give Taxpayer-Funded Obamacare To All Illegal Aliens In U.S.

Former Vice President and 2020 Democrat presidential primary candidate Joe Biden is vowing to give Obamacare, funded by American taxpayers, to all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States.

During an interview with Telemundo’s Jose Diaz-Balart, Biden forgot that Obamacare technically bans illegal aliens from enrolling in healthcare plans — although illegal aliens are still able to obtain subsidized and free healthcare at Americans’ expense — and promised that under his plan, all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens would be able to get Obamacare.

The exchange went as follows:

DIAZ-BALART: When I … NBC moderated that first debate with you, I didn’t … I don’t recall a clear answer, under your plan should … would the 11, 12 million undocumented immigrants that live in the United States, that have been here many for generations, would they have access …

BIDEN: Yes.

DIAZ-BALART: — to health insurance.

BIDEN: Yes, they … if they can buy into the system like everybody else.

DIAZ-BALART: Because you know, in [Obamacare] they can’t.

BIDEN: Yeah. Yeah, I know. Well they can, that’s my point. They continue to be able to do that.

DIAN-BALART: They cannot under the ObamaCare.

BIDEN: Well and that’s my point, they will though. They will be able to buy into … [illegal aliens] would be able to buy in, just like anyone else could.

Biden joins Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg — among other 2020 Democrats — in committing to forcing American taxpayers to pay for healthcare for illegal aliens who arrive in the U.S.

Already, due to loopholes, American taxpayers are spending nearly $20 billion every year to provide illegal aliens with subsidized healthcare, emergency room visits, and other health services.

Under the 2020 Democrats’ plan to provide taxpayer-funded healthcare to all illegal aliens living in the U.S., Americans would be billed potentially $660 billion every decade just to cover the costs. Other research has found that the plan would cost Americans at least $23 billion every year.

As Breitbart News has reported, experts have said that giving taxpayer-funded healthcare to effectively all foreign nationals who can make it to America’s borders would drive “strong incentives for people with serious health problems to enter the country or remain longer than their visas allow in order to get government-funded care.”

Despite 2020 Democrats’ continued push for taxpayer-funded healthcare for illegal aliens, American voters are overwhelmingly opposed to the plan. The latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey revealed that the healthcare-for-illegal-aliens plan is the least popular policy position, with opposition from 62 percent of U.S. voters.

Similarly, a CNN poll from July discovered that 63 percent of likely swing voters oppose providing healthcare to illegal aliens, along with nearly 6-in-10 of all likely U.S. voters and 61 percent of moderates. A Rasmussen Reports survey also found that likely voters, by a majority of 55 percent, oppose giving healthcare to even the most low-income illegal aliens.
