New Study Estimates Outcome of S. 2611's Amnesty Provisions
Based on the outcomes of the last amnesty in 1986, the Center for Immigration Studies' Steven Camarota's estimated that nearly 10 million illegal aliens will receive amnesty under S. 2611. Camarota writes:
[T]hey will legalize and eventually apply for permanent residence and be eligible for citizenship. As in 1986, we also expect that one-fourth (2.6 million) will get amnesty fraudulently. The bill will also allow an estimated 4.5 million family members of illegal aliens to join their legalized relatives, for a total of 14.4 million beneficiaries. These estimates do not include the very large increases in future legal immigration in the bill.
