Barack Obama claimed the proposed immigration bill will reduce deficits by a trillion dollars and boost our economy by 5 percent.
From the president’s Weekly Address:
a report from the Congressional Budget Office definitively showed that this bipartisan, commonsense bill will help the middle class grow our economy and shrink our deficits, by making sure that every worker in America plays by the same set of rules and pays taxes like everyone else.
According to this independent report, reforming our immigration system would reduce our deficits by almost a trillion dollars over the next two decades. And it will boost our economy by more than 5 percent, in part because of businesses created, investments made, and technologies invented by immigrants.

Barack Obama also claimed Obamacare would reduce the deficit.
Obama knows the immigration bill won’t reduce the deficit. And, he really doesn’t care about the truth or the deficit. He just wants the immigration bill passed.
For the record… Most illegal alien families collect welfare.
