Scoring the Immigration Reform Bill: An Analysis of the CBO’s Numbers

On June 18, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) plans to release its score of S. 744, the Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act. What do the CBO numbers reveal? What do they fail to include? What assumptions may be subject to question? Have other fiscal costs been overlooked? Are there any shortcomings that policymakers should address? Join us as our panelists examine these and other questions regarding the true costs of this proposed immigration reform legislation and the challenges it presents to our nation’s fiscal well-being.
