Immigration Reform Bill Is A Multi-Billion Dollar Bonanza For Defense Contractors

"Last week, the U.S. Senate passed the Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act, a massive bill that overhauls American immigration policy –and offers a bonanza of cash for the defense industry.  The bill –which must still be approved by the House and signed by the President before it becomes law– mandates that the government spend approximately $38 billion on personnel and equipment meant to secure the nation’s southern border, and even goes so far as to include shopping lists of specific gadgets and systems that must be purchased." - Forbes, July 1, 2013.
