DREAM Act would boost economy, think tank says

There are 521 comments on the WTSP-TV Saint Petersburg story from Oct 1, 2012, titled DREAM Act would boost economy, think tank says. In it, WTSP-TV Saint Petersburg reports that:

If illegal immigrants brought to the U.S. as children were given legal status, their improved access to college and better jobs would add $329 billion and 1.4 million jobs to the nation's economy over two decades, according to a report set for release today.

Just like this report says that amnesty will boost the economy. I cannot argue that more consumers and an increased labor supply will boost the economy. Of course that will make the rich richer because increased demand will cause prices to rise increasing profits and wages will fall due to an increase in the supply of labor also increasing profits. Those who work will see prices and taxes rise and wages fall. Those who do not work will of course not be affected since they do not receive wages and the politicians will just increase their entitlements so the 47% will keep voting them back into office.

Exactly, it's the only night of the year I go out for dinner and friends house. Last year, I had about three American tricker treaters, and at least 50-60 Latino's.....And I live in a predominantly white neighborhood, so ya gotta believe they come up here for better Candy.That's cruel.....

How would giving amnesty boost the economy? The few cent's they pay on the dollar goes into the economy now. Doesn't help. The rest of their money goes back to Mexico. They will just be freer to come out and rack up more Social Services off the tax payers.
So true, plus having kids every year sucking up public assistance for their anchor brats, free food, cash aid, health care. "hard working illegals" yeah right.

<quoted text>bull shit even if they where to go and come back legally you racist bastards just don't like our people. never did and never will.because are native people have always lived in this contenent.I myself am native American mom from Mexico and father from Texas.don't forget Texas was Mexico.History they try to get rid of our native people, but where back and its called karma.We are many Mex-Amer and we are here to stay like it or not.
You may possibly be part Native American Indian if your Father is or was one. But Native Americans have no blood lines with Mexicans at all. They are Asian. And have the same blood lines as Eskimo`s. Indians from Mexico are not in any way related. Many from South of the border try to use that claim to further their cause. But that is all it is. A pathetic attempt to advance La Raza or Reconquista Agenda. So Knock off the BullSh!t. Azzw!pe.

Only because there are a larger number of whites at present in America. But if you use statistic`s by the group alone Illegals are higher on the dole. Stop trying to BullS!t people Wannabe!
