Former South Carolina Republican senator and current Heritage Foundation president Jim DeMint on ABC's “This Week,” 

“The study you’ll see from Heritage this week presents a staggering cost of another amnesty in our country, based on the 'detrimental effects long-term' of government benefits that would eventually go to the millions offered a path to citizenship under the reform legislation currently being considered. There’s no reason we can’t begin to fix our immigration system so that we won’t make this problem worse. But the bill that’s being presented is unfair to those who came here legally. It will cost Americans trillions of dollars. It’ll make our unlawful immigration system worse.”
