Keeping 'Dreamers' would cost taxpayers $26B over next 10 years, feds say
By Bradford Betz, 17 Dec 2017
Allowing 2 million illegal immigrant “Dreamers” to remain in the U.S. would cost taxpayers $25.9 billion over the next decade, the Congressional Budget Office said in a report released Friday.
Dreamers are the prospective beneficiaries of the DREAM Act (Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors), legislation introduced in the U.S. Senate earlier this year to provide a pathway to citizenship for some illegal immigrants.
They would include those who've participated in DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals), received temporary protected status, or have fulfilled certain educational requirements.
Experts Say DREAM Act Would Legalize 2.2 Million – Mostly of Mexican Origin

Mexico City (CNSNews.com) – The DREAM Act of 2017 would give conditional permanent residence status to at least two million immigrants, mostly of Mexican origin, according to experts and a new study.
The legislation, proposed by Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.), and Chuck Schumer (D-NY), is central to the ongoing immigration debate in Congress over the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, which led to the recent brief government shutdown.
Announced by President Obama in 2012, DACA covered a subset of the 2.2 million immigrants who entered the U.S. illegally that would be eligible for residence status under the DREAM Act. The Trump administration ended the program last September.
DACA gave approximately 798,900 immigrants who arrived in the U.S. without legal permission as minors – “Dreamers” – temporary work authorization and permission to stay in the US, according to the US Citizenship and Immigration Service.
The vast majority of those eligible for DACA were brought to the U.S. by their parents from Mexico, according to analysis by the Migration Policy Institute in Washington, D.C.
