Napolitano To Resign in September

“Janet Napolitano is resigning as head of the Homeland Security Department and seeking a post as president of the University of California, the long-time Obama confidant announced Friday. Officials told Fox News that Napolitano does not plan to leave her post until September. But she announced the move on Friday after it began to break in the media, revealing that she has been nominated to lead the California university system,” Fox News reported.

The High Cost of Amnesty – $12,000 Per Immigrant

“A fight has erupted over the costs of granting amnesty to the estimated 11 million illegal immigrants in America, with the White House claiming the cash benefits to the Treasury are huge and will slash the deficit, and critics showing it will cost Americans more and increase the deficit,” the Washington Examiner says.

“Critics are pushing back hard, led by the Heritage Foundation. Among the key points: reform supporters suggest that immigrants will suddenly be paying taxes when they become legal, but that’s already happening.”

“Heritage is highlighting a chart that details the taxes paid and government services received by all Americans, including illegal immigrants. It shows that after amnesty, immigrants will cost governments $12,433 in benefits over the taxes they pay per year. Over a lifetime of an adult illegal granted amnesty, the difference between benefits received and taxes paid would be a cost to taxpayers of $592,000.”

House GOP Concerned Over Possible Conference With Senate

“House speaker John Boehner continues to insist that he won’t allow a vote on an immigration-reform bill that doesn’t have the support of a majority of the House GOP caucus. He recently extended that pledge to include any bill that might result from a conference committee – an official, bicameral negotiation that typically occurs when each chamber has passed legislation on the same issue. But opponents of the Senate-passed Gang of Eight bill are still skeptical,” says Andrew Stiles at National Review.

“We aren’t concerned about what passes the House, the concern is what passes out of conference,” a conservative GOP aide tells National Review Online. “Once you to go to conference, you lose control of the situation.”

    What makes me skeptical is that Heritage is always so pessimistic & negative about this which makes no sense…………….330 million Americans……………..11 million illegals…………3.3% of the population out of which NOT all of them are Welfare BECAUSE they are not legal…………………..just the children born here……………..the rest are working some pay taxes most do not……………….

    Most of the US pay no taxes about 50 to 60%……………..in any case………just making an observation…….

    Weren’t there studies done in the years after the 1986 amnesty that showed more use per capita of government benefits by those amnestied? Time to haul out those old studies because there is no reason at all to expect it will different this time.

      You betcha! There are so many bad things… Age of consent is 12 in Mexico, so we have MANY of them charged or in prison on child abuse/sex abuse/Rape, which Napalitono, WOULD have the authority to just “forgive these crimes, including the obvious coming here illegally! USA, Buy from USA, ALL USA companies, push e verify OR successor – that would ONLY be able to be used to check: SSN, DOB, Name and/or for LEGALPermanent Residents, their Green Card I-551 Number! As the majority of Central/South Americans are practicing Catholics, I feel that the Majority of them do not use Birth Control! I’m not discriminating against Catholics in any way, but I do believe that NumbersUSA has woefully underestimated the number of people who would have received Amnesty and the adding Family Reunification Act,, which allows each spouse to bring over their parents, grandparents, siblings, nieces and nephews, on and on… So I think 100M in 10 yrs, and we USED to be using a range of numbers of illegals – between 11-22 M here now, and most organizations are stuck on 11M, when Amnesty talks began, Border Patrol has stated that illegals are double if not triple increased! Lets remember that S 744 provided a ROLLING PERMANENT AMNESTY EVERY 10 Yrs! Seriously…this was a horrible bill, THANK GOD Republicans are killing it! WHEW! WE WON FOR NOW! Go NUMBERSUSA, FAIR, Heritage Foundation, ICE, BORDER PATROL! You ALL ROCK!
