Heritage Foundation has had those for a a while. In 2001, they'd predicted full employment and all debt paid off by 2010 due to Bush tax cuts they were pushing for (and got... twice).

Here's a FOX News story that mentions the CATO Institutes' response:

"...But Alex Nowrasteh of the Cato Institute said the new Heritage study has issues

'They do not consider that increased legal immigration will increase the size of the U.S. economy and thus increase tax revenues – contrary to an overwhelming contrary consensus in the economics literature...'"

If you you've taken math then you would know this would worsen the deficit.
The GOP's math guys disagree with you:


"In a statement on Monday, Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) cast doubt on Heritage’s findings, saying: “The Congressional Budget Office has found that fixing our broken immigration system could help our economy grow. A proper accounting of immigration reform should take into account these dynamic effects.”

Grover Norquist’s Americans for Tax Reform released a statement on Monday also denouncing the findings (while maintaining its support for the think tank in general): “The Heritage Foundation is a treasured ally in the conservative movement and a pillar of the conservative policy community,” said immigration policy aide Joshua Culling. “However, this study is every bit as flawed as its 2007 iteration.”"
