Republicans Give Immigrants a Reality Check on Expecting Immigration Reform

July 14, 2013. New York Daily News cites the Report done by Taxation and Economic Policy and Fiscal Policy Institute regarding the possible tax contribution to the states if there is an immigration reform.

A report released Wednesday by the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy in Washington, DC, and the Fiscal Policy Institute in Manhattan estimates that legalizing undocumented immigrants, who currently pay $744 million in state and local taxes, would increase that figure by $224 million.

“It’s reassuring to see that (reform ) would also provide a modest boost to state and local tax revenues — and, more importantly, would improve tax compliance so that all families are paying their fair share,” said David Dyssegaard Kallick, director of the Fiscal Policy Institute’s Immigration Research Initiative.
