EXPERT: Amnesty for ILLEGALS to Add $2 Trillion in Retirement, Medicare Costs

The already high cost to taxpayers for providing welfare, education and healthcare to illegal immigrants will soar if they are granted amnesty and citizenship, a massive bill driven as the aging population secures Social Security retirement and Medicare, according to a leading expert.
With the costs of illegal immigration already at $135 billion, according to a recent report, the retirement bill is likely to add far more, bringing the tab to $2 trillion.
“Do the math, and six million long-term undocumented residents translates into roughly $2 trillion of government benefits over the balance of their lives, some of which will be offset by Social Security and Medicare taxes paid. It is a steep bill,” said Steven Kopits, president of Princeton Policy Advisors in Pennington, N.J. He writes regularly on immigration.
His is a calculation few others have considered but is a likelihood as President Trump and Congress moves toward embracing some 800,000 so-called “dreamers,” youths who illegally entered the U.S. under a pro-immigration Obama-era plan, and millions of others already here.
