cooker bombs suggests hands on training. >> the individuals were able to reproduce weans using crude materials off the shelf in an effective manner. that shows me that there's some training there. it's not just something that somebody read. >> while today an unnamed u.s. official says the woking theory of investigators is that the two the working serrate -- terry of investigators they acted alone after both the chair and ranking member of the senate intelligence committee insisted it was premature to conclude there were no oversees ties and the fbi is reconstructing tamerlan tsarnaev six months in russia. lou: a scathing new report by five house republican committees blames rmer secretary of state hillary clinton for the failure to protect our consulates and benghazi from a tax of a month ago. the 46 page report issued

lou: what is the real cost of social and medical services? what is that answer definitively? water those illegal immigrants paying in taxes and providing in the way of services to others? i asked 18 questions which have no definitive answers concerning the impact of illegal immigration. is a positive, is a negative why doesn't the government
know or why are politicians so quick to see legislation passed? george soros backed left-wing hit squad media matters' say they do know the answers and i was anti-immigrant because i did not acknowledge the answers. i failed on basic immigration fax. apparently they have all the answers. but instead of an honest response to confuse and conflates issues and t 2009 report from the think tank from the policy institute with the union backed institute found immigration which we support as a whole $37 billion.
to the nation's gdp every year. that doesn't answer my question. i have no question about legal immigration. by the way my guess is that number is ridiculously small my question is do we make money or benefits or prosper? media matters went on to cite a professor of that it would decrease gdp by 2. $6 trillion over the next 10 years. 2.6 trillion. i don't know how they came up with that but who is that? put that down. 2.6 trillion. but who was at professor?
we have a pitcher roald -- -- teaching chicano studies his name is raul yes andhe independent objective academic mind who is then academic pursuit more of an activist and think chican gives that away. i cannot imagine how he came up with 2.$6 trillion but we give it to you. here it is but also like media matters we could cherry pick the studies to prove a point* but the fact is they're not empirically it objectively researched. for example, the federation for american immigration reform perfectly fine organization like ucla of
the fiscal policy institute this restriction nest nest, anti-immigration and estimate they cost taxpayers $113 billion per year for crying out loud. 130 million. really? but just like the good professor they are activist i am asking for objective answers for those who will make public policy decisions as important as border security and immigration reform to have real answers reno the studies of how much can you rely upon them? media matters knows the answer but that isn't what they are about. within your time pois out are undocumented workers contribute 15 billion per year.
with the social security $15 billion per year with social security. that is fine through payroll taxes. but they said that immigrant without a high-school degree would have a net co of $89,000. her year over their lifetime. who do believe? the national research council, "new york times", we believe the national research council basically $90,000 is the net cost? what we're asking for is simple honesty for the american people. this doesn't have to be an ugly discussion but it does have to be honest. media matters and organizations like it fails to understand these are honest questions that
deserve honest answers. there's nothing anti-immigrant about demanding responsible leadership based on fact and empirical studies in washington and public policy based on all of that, not just politics. but public policy choices in the nation's interest. >> the bston bombing suspect is not an enemy combat into? then what is the. we have the answers with "dobb's law". the analysis says the obama budget is fair on taxes he raises them on every one. details ahead. a plan to reform the immigration laws with gang of 8 but lamar smith says it of 8 but lamar smith says it is worse than we expected. you hurt my feelings, todd. i did? when visa signature asked everybody
what upgraded experience really mattered... you suggested luxury car service instd of "strength training with patrick willis." come on todd! flap them chicken wings. [ grunts ] well, i travel a lot and umm... [ male announcer ] at visa signature, every upgradedxperience comes from listening to our cardholders. visa signature. your idea of what a card should be. ...amelia... neil and buzz: for teaching us that you can't create the future... by clinging to the past. and with that: you're history. instead of looking behind... delta is looking beyond. 80 thousand of us investing billions... in everything from the best experiences below... to the finest comforts above. we're not simply saluting history... we're making it.

lou: remember when the president promised he would not raise taxes on the middle css? and analysis from the tax policy center finds his budget does that. between 100 and $200,000 per year will pay $150 more in taxes each year some earning less than 100,000 would pay just under $100 and congress is not expected to take up the president's budget anytime soon provide a report finds the internal revenue service over paid billions of dllars in tax credits designed to help low-income families and the ira's overpayments amount between 11.6 billion and 13 point* $6 billion that range is the government's calculation. the budget over fbi was just over a billion dollars last year.
turning to immigration reform my next guest calls the gang of 8 plan mass amnesty now we need to take it slow and get a right. joining me now is congressman of lamar smith from texas chairman of the committee on science base an technology. let's start with a reflexive response with the left in the right to with the bombings and boston that it should accelerate the passage othe immigration reform and immediately where do you come down? >> we need to get all the facts bere we determine how the bombing's impact immigration policy but we
need to put the safety of the american people first. that means we don't immediately legalize the 10 million people illegally before we have secured borders it seems to me if we rush the bill we will jeopardize american lives so i think the message is go slow, wait and see with the result of the bombings but don't rush to get the bill through any time soon. lou: you called the nicole petallides -- gang of 8 planned mass amnesty. why? >> with the senate immigration bill six months after it is enacted almost everybody in the country ilgally will be legalized and get amnesty. they will get amnesty before the borders are secure. and pay december 14 and says of the border is insecure
after five years a commission will be appointed to make recoendations. that doesn't sound like a deadline for border security lou: that is the guaranteed? talk about border security, that he would be satisfied in coming years with state teachers with the term of art operational or operatives secity. what in the world? how about securing the borders? >> avenue where she gets her information the gao said only 6 percent of the borders have full control only 20% under operational control that is less than half with a failing grade and as far as the triggers
is a hope and wish if not done within five yearsrs there is another commission so it is amnesty fortand border security later, if ever. lou: in sure the temperature you have taken. is it likely? you have your own gang of 8. you are working on this issue but the first words are they love what the gang of 8 has done. will we watch this get rubber-stamp? >> not all. i do not think the senate immigration bill as it now stands will pass the senate. as far as what is going on they have not made pants -- plans public. we will pass the guest worker plan and a bill for more immigrants to need the
skills they need to get jobs and take care of their families. to pass that you verify bill to make sure workers who hire those here illegally and we will do it right on the house judiciary committee that is a direction you'll see congress go. lou: always good to talk with you. good to be here. make your voice heard and join the discussion at lou dobbs.com an e-mail me at email@example.com or twitter at lou dobbs news. the man accused of sending rice and poison to the president now suspect it was a frame. we will tell you who was really framed. next.@ ♪
