Congress will begin work in earnest at the first of the year on DACA amnesty. Both the RINOs and the Democrats will be pushing hard for it’s passage but they had better find enough votes to override a veto because Democrats will want a clean bill with no conditions, such as a wall and no chain migration. I don’t believe President Trump will go for that and will veto any bill that doesn’t include them both. The very concept has drawn criticism from all sides except the ruling elite. That’s what forced Democrats to drop their demand that amnesty be included in the coming budget deadline.
The CBO has just thrown an additional monkey wrench into the mix. The non-partisan CBO predicts that one out of every five illegals who are granted amnesty will immediately go on food stamps the moment they are eligible. When you consider DACA could provide amnesty for 3.2 million illegals, the cost would be stratospheric.

Remember, that is just the cost of food stamps. Not included would be Medicaid, HUD, HEAP, welfare and assorted other government freebies. All of those programs cost more than the SNAP (food stamp) program. We still haven’t included education including college assistance, which is not infinite, meaning that Dreamers could bump the children of American citizens from the programs. Also, you have student loans that cost the taxpayers a fortune because so many of the loans are never repaid.
The cost of DACA amnesty would be placed on top of the costs that Americans already pay every year due to illegal immigration into the U.S.
As Breitbart News reported, the most recent Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) report reveals that an illegal alien costs each American taxpayer approximately $8,075, totaling a burden of roughly $116 billion annually.
Researchers with FAIR said the finding was both a “disturbing and unsustainable trend,” as the cost of illegal immigration to taxpayers has risen nearly $3 billion since 2013, when illegal immigration cost $113 billion.
