Thanks for the welcome, Tim. I was being a little glib with how the very first sentence of Strayhorn’s report is absurd. When you drill down into the report the flaws are really serious: it presumes the “undocumented” in Texas don’t ever fraudulently apply for benefits, it assumes the $18 billion in work wouldn’t get done without the “undocumented,” and it ignores its own findings that since the “undocumented” are a billion dollar net cost to local governments, the reality is they cost Texas about $500 million a year.

Oh, and Tim, you left your wallet in the kitchen. I made an undocumented withdrawal. Hope you don’t mind.
