Cost of amnesty not important when it proves positive

Remember the nonsensical Migrationwatch paper on the cost of an amnesty for illegal immigrants that made the front page of the Express on 4 May?

Well, today, the London School of Ecnomomics will publish a report commissioned by the Mayor of London Boris Johnson, suggesting such an amnesty would 'boost the UK economy by £3 billion a year and raise tax revenues by £842 million,' according to the Telegraph. The BBC, the Financial Times, the Guardian are all reporting the same.

On Google News there are currently 16 articles on this subject. None of them are from the Mail, Express, Sun or Star. The story has not made Migrationwatch's 'recent news reports archive' either.
