"The Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) is an organization devoted to reducing immigration into the United States, both legal and unauthorized. Its publications criticize immigration along cultural, economic, and political lines. On the economic front, FAIR’s report, 'The Fiscal Burden of Illegal Immigration on United States Taxpayers' by Jack Martin and Eric A. Ruark, estimates the total net costs of illegal immigration to U.S. taxpayers is $113 billion annually. However, FAIR’s report vastly overstates the costs of illegal immigration and totally ignores the benefits." (10/25/11)
