But the naysayers are wrong.

Total BS. The only thing amnesty will boost is resentment, anger, frustration, violence -- and of course, our welfare rolls.

That's an understatement. It will also increase the amount of people trying to sneak in to do the jobs these new Americans won't do. Once made legal where exactly would be their incentives to do those jobs now?

A different study, based on common sense, shows that putting the currently 15 million unemployed Americans back to work would create more than $1.5 trillion in added GDP over ten years, and these newly employed American workers would increase tax revenues by more than $5.4 billion in the first three years.
