The Third Way Immigration Reform Calculations

The third way improves U.S. economy

The Immigrant Tax Inquiry Group (ITIG) policy advocates a 10 percent Public Service Tax for our 6.5 million undocumented immigrants (who are working with others’ Social Security numbers) based on employee wages. The payments are to be split evenly between each employer and employee yielding $146 billion over a 10-year period.

ITIG policy also recommends a 10 percent Public Service Tax for domestic, service and trade industry workers—the cash economy—to be split evenly between each employer and employee. This tax will be an additional cash revenue of $30 billion over the 10-year span to be deposited in the U.S. treasury.

The ITIG model creates 1.3 million jobs for Americans

We estimate that roughly 40 percent of the total revenue of $167 billion will generate 1.3 million jobs over a 10-year period. The jobs are averaged at $50,000 per year including staff benefits.

The numbers add up to a generated revenue that will fund immigration reform and create needed jobs.

The ITIG policy earmarks money for immigration reform and infrastructure

The Vision includes $100 billion to mitigate many of the concerns of massive illegal immigration. The remaining $67 billion is allocated for our infrastructure. Our commerce needs to thrive for us to help immigrants.
