One of the most controversial aspects of the proposed immigration reform bill is that, according to reports, the bill could end up costing taxpayers around $124 billion dollars a year, $6.3 trillion dollars over the next 50 years. The massive cost is predicted to come from the difference between what newly legalized immigrants would pay in taxes and what they would claim in benefits. The "Gang of Eight," (the bipartisan authors of the current immigration reform bill that was recently sent to the Senate floor for approval, insist that their immigration reform bill will not increase the nation's deficit. They are, in fact, anticipating that the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) will release an estimate in the next few weeks which will coincide with their expectations. The lead sponsor of the bill, Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.), stated their intention remains to have the bill pay for itself over the years, through the use of a trust fund, rather than force taxpayers to incur any of the implementation or operation expenses.
