Deporting 11 million undocumented people would be an almost $8 trillion hit to the economy over the next 14 years. Legalizing them could boost GDP by almost $2 trillion in that same time period.
That is 1% GDP growth.
@lenagroeger from @ProPublica
Undocumented immigrants also leave on average about $11 billion in tax refunds to treasury EVERY YEAR.
$11 billion.

Trump is spending $12billion a year to detain and deport them.

Genius orange tiny hands
Interrupting this thread to remind the #MAGAMorons that:
1- if you are undocumented you do not qualify for welfare.
2- legal immigrants need years to qualify for social benefits while they start paying into them from day one
Undocumented immigrants do not lower wages for billy bob. Employers pay less to increase profits. Those savings are not passed on to you.

They also cost less to employ because they don’t bitch, complain, or sue when they get a booboo. They appreciate the opportunity to work.
Undocumented immigrants value opportunity.
They also want their kids to have a better life.
They bust their ass to educated them, provide a better life for them and invest in their future: THIS MEANS ECONOMIC ACTIVITY. Money & goods exchanging hands. It is a good thing for us all
There are bad apples in every segment of this society. Criminals come in all shapes and colors. Of course some undocumented immigrants commit crimes.
1.6% of immigrants are felons.
8% of Americans are felons.
Also, see how the increase in immigrant population affects crime 👇🏽
