Princeton Policy Adviser President Steven Kopits says his research on illegal immigration shows that giving amnesty to illegal aliens would cost American taxpayers a staggering $2 TRILLION, as the new citizens would eventually become eligible for government programs.

Omar Mateen reportedly shot and killed 49 people at the Pulse gay nightclub in Orlando in 2016, and his wife is on trial for collaborating with terrorists related to the shooting event. Her lawyers are asking for a mistrial as prosecutors delayed informing her that Omar’s father, Seddique Mateen, has been an FBI informant for more than a decade, and allege that he may have been an accomplice. The FBI declined to prosecute the shooter, Omar, for making violent threats in 2013, which may have prevented the Pulse event.
