A handful of Republican senators has asked the Congressional Budget Office to analyze the cost to American taxpayers of a Democrat plan that provides United States jobs, government handouts, and free health care to illegal aliens.

In May and this month, House Democrats passed two versions of the “HEROES Act,” an effective amnesty for millions of illegal aliens who can be deemed as working “critical infrastructure” jobs in the U.S., needless to say - the legislation has very weak parameters for what is considered “critical.”

The Democrats’ first version of the HEROES Act (H.R. 6800) offered a similar amnesty — giving businesses the ability to hire cheaper illegal aliens for scarce U.S. jobs even as tens of millions of Americans remain unemployed, and even more Americans are out of the labor force entirely.

‘Senators Thom Tillis (R-NC), Joni Ernst (R-IA), Kelly Loeffler (R-GA), and Mike Lee (R-UT) have sent a letter to the CBO asking for a review of the impact the HEROES Act’s amnesty and illegal immigration enticements would have on Americans in the workforce and on their pocketbooks,’ as reported by Breitbart News.

“It’s time the American people have a fuller understanding of exactly how much Speaker [Nancy] Pelosi’s policies will cost them,” the Senators wrote. “While we have estimates of how much H.R. 6800 may cost in total, we believe Congress must know the costs of the specific provisions providing benefits to illegal immigrants.

Mass immigration has proven direct impacts on the nation’s working and middle class, who are forced to compete for U.S. jobs with millions of newly arrived illegal aliens and even more legal immigrants every year.

Though the big business lobby and corporate interests claim that the labor pool must be expanded to provide them with a never-ending flow of foreign workers in efforts to continue endless GDP growth, all the while, more than 50 million Americans today remain unemployed, underemployed, or out of the labor force, though all want full-time jobs.

President Trump’s agenda, opposed by big business and corporate lobbyists, has sought to tighten the U.S. labor market through increased immigration enforcement and an overall decrease in employment-based immigration, which, in return, has delivered jobs and higher wages (which have not increased since the late 1970s) to working- and middle-class Americans.
