Comment: Cost Of Bad Laws - The Chicago Tribune reports "A cost-benefit analysis released this week by University of Alabama economist Samuel Addy estimated up to 80,000 jobs could be vacated by illegal immigrants fleeing the crackdown, costing Alabama's economy up to $10.8 billion. The lost jobs would cost Alabama up to $264.5 million in lost state sales and income taxes, and as much as $93.1 million in lost city and county sales taxes, it found." Our economy needs immigration. Immigration is primarily an economic issue - not primarily a security issue. When it is treated as a security issue, and police state measures are used to enforce it, the economy suffers.
