What Would Amnesty Cost?

If any form of new work visas, a guest worker program, or path to citizenship passes Congress, the first step in legal status has been achieved, and the financial burden on the American taxpayer will be high. Current net fiscal cost per illegal household is about $14,387/yr. Once legal status of any kind is achieved, it opens the door for more federal benefits, raising that number to about $29,000/year. Extrapolated, the conservative estimate for the total net cost of granting amnesty is $6.3 TRILLION. Heritage Action has a great flyer that summarizes the fiscal cost of illegals.
