Senate Passes Amnesty Bill

In a bi-partisan 68-32 vote, the U.S. senate passed a sweeping immigration reform bill that will lead to the citizenship of approximately 11 million illegal aliens.

This is likely to cause major economic issues as all of the workers making below minimum suddenly need to be paid it.

However, this also means that those granted amnesty will have to pay their share into the system through income taxes.

They also will receive social assistance (which some do already illegally.)

The net effect on the economy is going to be hard to measure within at least a decade but it is going to hit the wallets of farms harbouring illegals for cheap labour (which isn't something that should be encouraged. Hire legal workers or you're just part of the problem.)

Also, I highly doubt all 11 million are going to get in. Expect a big wave of deportations along with the new citizenships.
