  1. This is from the Texas Monthly which is left leaning. They are trying to sell the story that enforcing the immigration law would be costly with lost tax revenue and wage earnings. I’d say no problem. Fill the jobs with citizens who are sitting on their duffs collecting welfare.

    Texas’s law banning immigrant sanctuary cities is set to go into effect on September 1, and if that happens, the state could stand to lose billions of dollars, according the Houston Chronicle. The estimate comes from an economic analysis conducted by a group of Houston business leaders, city officials, and immigration advocates. The Reform Immigration for Texas Alliance presented its findings at a press conference on Tuesday, after looking at data from the U.S. Census, the Bureau of Economic Analysis, and the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy. The report says that should 10 percent of the state’s undocumented immigrants leave, Texas would lose about $190.7 million in federal tax revenue and $223.5 million more in state and local taxes. With the loss of those 95,000 undocumented workers, Texas would also see about $2.9 billion in wage earnings disappear, plus a loss of about 70,000 jobs that depend on undocumented consumers, which would cost an additional $2.4 billion in lost wages. In total, the analysis shows Texas could lose between $9.2 billion and $13.8 billion. The law, Senate Bill 4, would require local governments and law enforcement agencies to cooperate with federal immigration authorities, a measure supporters like Governor Greg Abbott says will make Texas safer. Critics of the law say it allows for racially biased immigration policing.
