Vitter: Amnesty Would Cost Taxpayers $6.3 Trillion, According to Study

(Washington, D.C.) – U.S. Sen. David Vitter today reacted to a new report by the Heritage Foundation showing that the Gang of Eight immigration proposal would cost $6.3 trillion of taxpayer dollars.

“A $6.3 trillion price tag should completely disqualify the Gang of 8 proposal, even without the amnesty,” Vitter said. “Our federal debt severely threatens our economy as it is now. The last thing we should be doing is granting amnesty to illegal immigrants, giving them all the taxpayer funded benefits and advantages of citizenship, while completely turning our back on enforcement.”
