Factcheck: Immigration bill's '$6.3 trillion price tag'

Critics wrongly using Heritage Foundation study to make claims about legislation's cost

Critics of a bipartisan Senate bill to overhaul the nation's immigration system falsely claim that it will cost an additional $6.3 trillion, citing a study by a conservative group that opposes the bill. However, the report is not an analysis of the bill, and it says the cost of keeping the status quo "could run into the trillions" – so the net cost would be substantially lower than $6.3 trillion.
