|Alert! Tell Super-Committee on Deficit Reduction Not to Cut Immigration Enforcement Funds|
If you have been following the shenanigans in Washington, you know that Congress has created a new twelve-person “super committee” to find at least $1.5 trillion in additional deficit reduction steps over a ten-year period. If it fails to do so, or if Congress does not approve its recommendations, then $1.2 trillion in automatic, across-the-board cuts will be triggered.
CAPS has issued a press release to point out that immigration enforcement reduces the deficit since the federal government spends three times as much on services and benefits to them as it collects in taxes. Reducing the operations of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and Customs and Border Protection (CBP) will cost more than it will save.
