Pro-Illegal immigration studies

Really according to…

Now come the supposedly impartial Raul Hinojosa-Ojeda, associate professor of Chicana and Chicano studies at UCLA; and Manuel Pastor, a geography and American studies professor and co-director of the USC Center for the Study of Immigrant Integration. Hinojosa-Ojeda, a former advisor to ex-President Bill Clinton, claims legalizing the estimated 12 million illegals now in the United States would produce a $1.5 trillion benefit to the economy over 10 years — about $12,500 per year per legalized immigrant over current levels. Pastor says legalizing the approximately 3 million illegals in California would immediately increase state and local taxes by about $350 million a year.

What about sending illegal immigrants back home, letting some of the 25 million or so legal US citizens drive the wages up and increase the country’s tax base AND not have to put out the services we currently put out for illegal immigrants as well as the services we have to put out for the unemployed US citizens.  Trying to argue the case that by making the illegal immigrants legal will somehow help our country is so bogus that even a “non-professor” can see it.
