Immigration Protests Focus on 22 Republicans Across Country

Twitter, Facebook and other social media were abuzz Wednesday with photos and calls to action from immigration reform activists who protested across the country at district offices of at least a dozen House Republicans.

Arturo Rodriguez, president of United Farm Workers, one of the groups backing the protests, said activists planned to engage in civil disobedience Wednesday through Friday at the offices of 22 House Republicans.

“The plan is to send a powerful message to the Republican leadership that the time  for a vote on immigration reform is now.”

Judging by photos posted on Facebook, one of the biggest rallies appeared to be at the California office of GOP Whip Kevin McCarthy, with crowds of sign-carrying activists packing the office and spilling over into the parking lot.

In Nevada, the Las Vegas Sun reported five protesters arrested outside Rep. Joe Heck’s Henderson office,

In Pennsylvania, lehighvalleylive.com. reported that protesters sat down with Rep. Charlie Dent’s district director, Vincent O’Domski, to talk about comprehensive immigration reform.

And in Raleigh, N.C., Sergio Sanchez, president of the pro-immigration group Fuerza y Libertad, said his 64-year-old mother was camped out in Rep. George Holding’s office and didn’t plan to leave until she was arrested.

“My mother’s pretty set on what she’s going to do today. The message is: We cannot wait,” he told reporters on a phone conference.

Activists also posted photos of protests at Rep. Doc Hastings’ office in Washington, Rep. Matt Salmon’s office in Arizona and Rep. Michael G. Grimm’s office in New York City.

      CONGRESSIONAL BUDGET OFFICE

      Douglas W. Elmendorf, Director U.S. Congress Washington, DC 20515

      March 25, 2014 Honorable Nancy Pelosi Minority Leader U.S. House of Representatives Washington, DC 20515 Dear Madam Leader: As you requested, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) has reviewed H.R. 15, the Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act, as introduced on October 2, 2013. H.R. 15 would revise laws governing immigration and the enforcement of those laws, allowing for a significant increase in the number of noncitizens who could lawfully enter the United States on both a permanent and temporary basis. Additionally, the bill would create a process for many individuals who are present in the country now on an unauthorized basis to gain legal status, subject to requirements specified in the bill. The bill also would directly appropriate funds for tightening border security and enforcing immigration laws, and would authorize additional appropriations for those purposes. CBO and the staff of the Joint Committee on Taxation (JCT) have not completed a full, comprehensive cost estimate for H.R. 15. However, the bill is quite similar to the version of S. 744 that was reported by the Senate Committee on the Judiciary in 2013 (and later amended and passed by the Senate). Based on that similarity, we expect that enacting H.R. 15 would have effects on the population and the federal budget that would be quite similar to those of the committee-reported version of S. 744. Specifically, we expect that enacting H.R. 15 would increase direct spending and revenues by about the same amounts as S. 744, for a net reduction in federal budget deficits of about $200 billion over the 2015-2024 period and significantly greater amounts in the decade following 2024.

      1

      In addition to the cost estimate for S. 744, CBO prepared an analysis of the overall economic impact of that bill and of the incremental federal budgetary effects of those changes in the economy that were outside the

      1. For more information, see CBO’s cost estimate for S. 744 as reported by the Senate Committee on the Judiciary (June 18, 2013) at http://www.cbo.gov/publication/44225 and CBO’s cost estimate for S. 744 as passed by the Senate (July 3, 2013) at http://www.cbo.gov/publication/44397.

      Honorable Nancy Pelosi Page 2 scope of the cost estimate for the bill. CBO has not prepared such an analysis for H.R. 15. However, based on the similarity of the legislation to the version of S. 744 that was reported by the Senate Committee on the Judiciary, we expect that enacting H.R. 15 would have effects on output and income that would be quite similar to those of the committee-reported version of S. 744. Among other effects, the legislation would probably boost economic output, increase average wages for the entire labor force after about a decade (but decrease them before that), raise the amount of capital investment, and increase the productivity of labor and capital. On balance, we expect that the economic effects of H.R. 15 that would not be included in the cost estimate would have no significant net effect on federal budget deficits during the coming decade and would reduce deficits by a significant additional amount during the following decade.

      2

      Comparison of the Provisions of H.R. 15 with Those of S. 744

      In 2013, CBO transmitted two cost estimates for S. 744 (which was also entitled the Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act)—for a committee-approved version and a Senate- passed version of the legislation. The budgetary effects of H.R. 15 would be quite similar to those of the committee-approved version of S. 744. The first estimate for S. 744 was transmitted on June 18, 2013, and was for the version of the bill that was reported by the Senate Committee on the Judiciary on May 28, 2013, including the amendments made in the star print of June 6, 2013. In that cost estimate, CBO estimated that, under the bill, the population of the United States would increase by 10.4 million people, on net, by 2023 (10 years after assumed enactment) and that roughly 8 million unauthorized residents would initially gain legal status (because those people would already be in the United States, that change in status would not increase the U.S. population). CBO and JCT estimated that enacting the legislation would generate changes in direct spending and revenues that would decrease federal budget deficits by $197 billion over the 2014–2023 period. The Senate amended S. 744 before passing it on June 27, 2013. CBO transmitted a letter summarizing its analysis of that version of S. 744 on July 3, 2013. For that Senate-passed version of the legislation, CBO estimated that the net population increase over the first 10 years after

      2. For more information, see Congressional Budget Office,

      The Economic Impact of S. 744, the Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act

      (June 2013), http://www.cbo.gov/publication/44346.

      Honorable Nancy Pelosi Page 3 enactment would be 9.6 million people—800,000 fewer than estimated for the committee-approved version of S. 744. That reduction stemmed from an amendment that would directly appropriate an additional $38 billion for the security of the southern U.S. border (relative to such funding in the committee-approved version). As a result of that appropriation and the consequent budgetary effects of having fewer unauthorized residents in the country (as well as the effects of other amendments), CBO and JCT estimated that changes in direct spending and revenues under the Senate- passed version of S. 744 would decrease federal budget deficits by $158 billion over the 2014-2023 period. H.R. 15 does not differ from the committee-reported version of S. 744 in any significant way; it differs from the Senate-passed version H.R. 15 of S. 744 mostly because H.R. 15 does not include the additional $38 billion in funding for border security that was in that version of the Senate bill (although it includes some such funding).

      Differences in Timeline and in CBO’s Baseline Projections

      Although H.R. 15 and the committee-reported version of S. 744 are very similar, if CBO and JCT were to prepare a full, comprehensive cost estimate for H.R. 15 now, the estimated effects on population and the federal budget would differ modestly from the effects for S. 744 that were estimated last year—primarily because the assumed enactment date would be different and because CBO has updated its baseline projections. However, the differences arising from those factors and others would be small relative to the size and scope of the budgetary effects of the legislation. Thus, the budgetary effects of H.R. 15 would be quite similar to those of the committee-approved version of S. 744. Last year’s cost estimate for S. 744 incorporated an assumption that the legislation would be enacted by the beginning of fiscal year 2014 and focused on the 10-year period from 2014 through 2023. For legislation that might be considered during the remainder of the current Congress, we would assume enactment near the start of fiscal year 2015 and focus on the 10-year period from 2015 through 2024. That shift in the timeline would have only a small impact on the estimated effects of the legislation on federal budget deficits through changes in direct spending and revenues. In addition, the shift would reduce estimated discretionary spending under the bill’s specified authorizations, but only by about $1 billion. That reduction would occur because those authorizations generally applied to the 2014-2018 period, which was the five-year period following the assumed

      Honorable Nancy Pelosi Page 4 enactment of S. 744, and authorizations for 2014 would not lead to spending if the bill was enacted near the start of fiscal year 2015. The updates to CBO’s baseline projections (which incorporate the assumption that current laws will generally be unchanged) reflect updated forecasts for inflation, average benefits to be provided through various federal programs, and other factors. Those updates would have only a small impact on the estimated effects of the legislation on direct spending and revenues because most of the revisions to the baseline projections were fairly small.

      Budgetary Effects in the Second Decade Following Enactment

      CBO expects that H.R. 15—like S. 744—would lead to a significant reduction in federal budget deficits during the second decade after enactment (as well as during the first decade after enactment). CBO estimated that the committee-reported version of S. 744 would generate changes in direct spending and revenues that would reduce deficits by about $700 billion over that second decade. In light of the considerations discussed above, CBO expects that the budgetary effects of H.R. 15 during that second decade would be quite similar. I hope you find this information useful. If you have any questions, the primary CBO staff contact is Sam Papenfuss. Sincerely, Douglas W. Elmendorf Director cc: Honorable John Boehner Speaker Honorable Joe Garcia

  • HelpSaveMaryland

    I would the bet the National Council of La Raza (The Race) and their buddies at the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) organized, transported and paid these illegal alien criminals to protst at the different GOP offices. Probably provided a box lunch too (Taco Bell). If our President wasn’t so busy trading Taliban terrorts away for U.S. deserters he could have had ICE agents detain and arrest these illegal aliens. 2016 is coming fast. No Amnesty. Enforce the law.

    I read that 60,000 children under 12 crossed into the US from Mexico in the last 10 months. That number is expected to double next year. Border Patrol in Texas is dumping illegals into Arizona bus stations because it has no more room for detainees.

    Yet the U.S. is going to spend $1.5 trillion on the F-35 to rule the skies. Meanwhile, thousands are crossing the border, invading the U.S. every month and there’s little effort to stop them.

    Hello, Congress, Hellooooo Mr. President. What are YOU going to do, or should we get a citizen militia together to guard our border, since YOU won’t.

    Many would consider conservative ideas if there were any proof that it results in a better world. All the proof shows otherwise. Conservative states are poorer, sicker, less free, and more immoral. When conservatives rule the federal government everything gets worst. The deficit goes up, the national debt climbs, the economy falters.

    The GOP / Republicans & Tea Partiers have an Illness that is worse than cancer its called OBAMISITIS :-).

    TheGOP / Republicans think that we all are FOLLIES like their RED STATE CONSTITUENTS :) HA HA HA THE JOKE IS ON THEM.:)

    The states with the

    LOWEST levels of education

    LOWEST levels of income

    HIGHEST rates of poverty

    HIGHEST rates of welfare and food stamps

    HIGHEST rates of illegitimate brats are RED STATES – ya know all your dveoted trailer park denziens in the south who don't have any teeth and slurp their cheap beer as they watch FAUX News

    So no – the UNDERCLASS is typically Republican.

    (and of those with more than BA – they voted D, not R.

    Ds get the super-educated,

    R's get the trailer park trash high school dropouts who live on welfare, food stamps and Sec 8 while popping out illegitimate brats that go on Medicaid and who rant about 'those people' while they waive their Confederate Flag.)

    For a start they are not undocumented immigrants, THEY ARE
    ILLEGAL ALIENS. They broke federal law. Which although not a FELONY, it is a
    civil infraction by crossing into a sovereign nation. I believe it’s a
    conspiracy as on the surface is seen that each administration is enforcing the
    laws, but in actual fact its still very porous, so businesses and agriculture
    still get their discount labor. The costs for the illegal invasion is out the
    window and now Obama and his elected officials has opened their big mouths
    about the possibility of Amnesty,
    millions more are going to try and skirt the Border Patrol. However, that’s not
    the worst of illegal immigration as 40 percent; arrive by aircraft masquerading
    as tourists. Many of the females are pregnant and once past ICE, they head for
    the nearest emergency room. America
    is a passionate country, but by this never ending stream of mostly illiterate,
    poor illegal aliens, taxpayers are their bread and butter. Although the
    E-verify system of identification has its merits, it’s not perfect. But
    Congress could pass a law that every American carry a national digital ID card
    based on your Social Security Number. Not only would it halt illegal aliens
    stealing American jobs, with the compliments of incorrigible employers, but
    could be used for voting and much more. The cost according to the Washington
    would be around $2 Billion dollars. That’s peanuts; we give that away as pocket
    change, especially under President Obama’s reign.

    Unless we rid ourselves of the Republican establishment and
    the Lib Democratic, we will be heading for overpopulation, shortages of water
    (what we have now in the Southwest) and a doctorial EPA, DOD, HS and other
    agencies sticking us with reams of more Rules and Regulations. Any other president would be impeached but
    Congress has refused to do so. It’s up to us to make it happen. Now more than
    ever we have to keep intense pressure on to remove this anti-American fraud of
    a president from office. We’ve been lied to repeatedly, had our Constitutional
    rights violated at every turn, been subjected to the whims of a dictator and
    watched our country and our liberties be torn to shreds. We the People are fed
    up with Obama’s lies, corruption and destruction of America.
    He overspends, overreaches his power and is a disgrace to our country. He
    allowed the bloodshed in Benghazi
    and good conservatives to be targeted in the IRS scandal. The only people who
    should be allowed into this nation are the highly skilled, not the criminals
    who bring illnesses unknown to America
    or even disguised terrorists. We need the double fencing along the border from CAL
    to Texas as if another Amnesty is
    passed, while millions of Americans are still looking for a job, ALL HELL WILL
    BRAKE LOOSE. My though is dump the GOP
    and Democrats and look for new leaders, not Career politicians. The break away
    TEA PARTY is the way to go. They would abolish the IRS and institute a fair
    tax, kill Obamacare, kill any amnesty and reduce this out of control government
    who ignores our veterans and is now giving freebies to the millions of illegal
    aliens already squatting here. I have no idea the cost annually of public
    benefits to foreign nationals, but it must be hundreds of billions while our
    old folks have to live on a pittance.

    More aliens protesting and demanding —boring, a non-story. US has plenty of immigration, nearly 1 million a year enter legally each year plus hundreds of thousands of guest workers.

    Time to focus on getting unemployed American back to work and passing E-verify to make sure only American citizens and legal immigrants hold hard-to-find U. S. jobs.
