Statement for the Record: The Fiscal Costs of the President’s Executive Actions on Immigration
On March 16, 2015 the First Focus Campaign for Children submitted this Statement to the House Committee on Oversight & Reform in response to a hearing on “The Fiscal Costs of the President’s Executive Actions on Immigration.” The expansion of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and the Deferred Action for Parental Accountability (DAPA) Programs is important for the healthy development and overall well being of children in the United States as this action has the potential to enhance educational opportunities, provide economic security, reduce fear of deportations and provide certain tax and social security benefits for eligible workers. Tax contributions by DACA and DAPA recipients will grow the U.S. Economy and more than pay for any potential benefits they might receive from the federal government.
