The immigration reform bill was defeated in the Senate yesterday.

It included a remarkable item. The illegal immigrants would qualify for the visa if they paid a $5,000 fine.

There's 12 million illegal immigrants in the USA.

$5,000 each from 12 million people is $60 billion dollars.

That's a rather substantial amount, which is basically a tax on workers.
