Why would granting amnesty to illegals in this country be a bad thing? They pay more in taxes than they take out of social welfare anyways and it would eliminate the hassle, physically, emotionally, and financially, of needing to deport them.
I'm wondering, if one day an Amnesty law gets passed would it be possible to just fly over beforehand, throw away your old passport and then act as if you have lived in the US as an illegal for multiple years so that you're granted amnesty and an easy way to citizenship.

I've posted often about this, and that is to say your statement is wholly untrue.
>They pay more in taxes than they take out of social welfare anyways
The annual costs of illegal immigration at the federal, state and local level is about $113 billion
Illegal immigrants pay $11.8 billion in taxes annually
>They pay more in taxes than they take out of social welfare anyway
KeK, the whole point of illegals is to pay them $3 hr, so you don't have to pay someone $25+ hr to do a dirty job. Trump is the only one who wants to stop this practice. The rest of the candidates are bullshitting you, especially the Democrats who want to give them the right to vote, but no way to be a citizen to get paid more.
You can do the math yourself, cuck.
There are 11 million illegal immigrants in the US (1). If each immigrant has 1 child (we know the number is higher) and the cost per student is $12,401 annually (2), the total comes out to $136.4 billion per year.
The progressive publication vice estimates a very generous $22 billion contribution in local and federal taxes, more than twice the estimate of other publications, but on schooling alone that leaves a shortfall of 114 billion. That's not even addressing the myriad other costs of illegal immigration including their massive over-representation in prisoner population and their straining of emergency rooms and abuse of social safety nets nation wide.
