The Cost of “Dreamers” In America


Most left wingers support DACA and the DREAM Act. In their opinion, illegal immigrants will contribute to America by working. Furthermore, Democrats often employ the emotional appeal, stating that children who were brought to the U.S. illegally by their parents are not at fault.

However, most conservatives have a different viewpoint. As stated by the Congressional Budget Office, illegal immigrants will cost American taxpayers billions of dollars over the next decade. Moreover, as Republicans often note, there are also American dreamers. Should we not put our own citizens first, question many people. At a time where the national debt is through the roof, perhaps now is not the time to take on another bill, note critics of the DREAM Act.
