Former senator and current Heritage Foundation president Jim DeMint on Sunday predicted that the Gang’s of Eight’s immigration reform bill would be blocked “if people read the bill.”

“I think if people read the bill, that it will be blocked,” DeMint said on ABC’s This Week. “Because once you get into it, just like Obamacare, it is not the way it’s been advertised.”

DeMint also previewed the results of a Heritage Foundation study coming out next week, which will highlight the “staggering cost” of the proposed legislation — potentially “in the trillions of dollars.”

“Our country faces very difficult economic and financial problems,” DeMint said. ”There’s no reason we can’t begin to fix our immigration system so that we won’t make [these problems] worse. But the bill that’s being presented is unfair to those who came here legally, it will cost Americans trillions of dollars, it will make our unlawful immigration system worse.”
