As the details of the Kennedy-Kyl (K-K) amnesty/guest worker bill unfold, it is becoming apparent that the globalists’ plan for the economic integration of North America is not just a figment of the imagination of conspiracy believers, or an “urban legend” as one newspaper called it, or even just a pipe dream of far-out world federalists. The K-K bill will accomplish economic integration by legalizing 20 million (20,000,000 illegal) aliens immediately and inviting tens of millions more (relatives of the amnestied plus guest workers) to enter legally in the coming years.Not only does the K-K bill call for integrating millions of poor, uneducated Mexicans into the U.S. economy and giving them and all their distant relatives extraordinarily generous handouts of social benefits, it even calls for U.S. foreign aid to Mexicans still living south of the border.
The 600+-page K-K bill fails to mention its biggest effect: the immense tax burden it will impose on America’s middle class. The K-K bill will require U.S. taxpayers to finance what is, in essence, a multi-billion-dollar purchase of Mexican poverty.
Title VI of the K-K bill will instantly turn the 20 million illegal aliens now in the U.S. into legal residents. Nobody knows the exact number, but since the bill has no cap and makes it advantageous to declare yourself an illegal alien, fraud will probably grow the number (as did the number who were granted amnesty by the 1986 law).
(Forget national security and our hope to exclude potential terrorists, criminals, and MS-13 gangs. Background checks are limited to what the government can find “by the end of the next business day.”)
The big majority of these illegal aliens are low-skill, low-wage high school dropouts. An in-depth Heritage Foundation study by Robert Rector estimates that the average low-skill household receives $30,160 in taxpayer-paid benefits (from all levels of government).
Heritage estimates that the average low-skill household pays only $10,573 in taxes at all levels. Each household, therefore, lays a net cost on U.S. taxpayers of $19,588 per year, which added up to $564 billion [$564,000,000,000] in 2004.
