Trump Lie Of The Day

March 3, 2017 by skokielib

In his address to Congress, Republican President Donald Trump used the old and tired talking point that immigrants cost taxpayers billions of dollars a year. What he said was, “According to the National Academy of Sciences, our current immigration system costs America’s taxpayers many billions of dollars a year.”

But that is a lie, or, if you’re feeling charitable, a half truth. Because what the report said was that while first generation immigrants are more expensive, second generation contribute more in taxes per capita than did non-immigrants.
