What if they left…the illegals? Part 2

Tina Griego is a Free-Lance reporter for the Denver Post. She writes some really good stuff and she is a strong advocate for LEGAL immigration.  Here she presents facts ignored by liberals and the media.

Here are 14 reasons illegal aliens have created a financial burden on American taxpayers:

  1. $14 billion to $22 billion dollars are spent each year on welfare to illegal aliens (that’s Billion with a ‘B’)
  2. $7.5 billion dollars are spent each year on Medicaid for illegal aliens.
  3. $12 billion dollars are spent each year on primary and secondary school education for children here illegally and they still cannot speak a word of English
  4. $27 billion dollars are spent each year for education for the American-born children of illegal aliens, known as anchor babies.
  5. $3 Million Dollars ‘PER DAY’ is spent to incarcerate illegal aliens. That’s $1.2 Billion a year.
  6. 28% percent of all federal prison inmates are illegal aliens.
  7. $190 billion dollars are spent each year on illegal aliens for welfare & social services by the American taxpayers.
  8. $200 billion dollars per year in suppressed American wages are caused by the illegal aliens.
  9. The illegal aliens in the United States have a crime rate that’s two and a half times that of white non-illegal aliens. In particular, their children are going to make a huge additional crime problem in the US.
  10. During the year 2005, there were 8 to 10 MILLION illegal aliens that crossed our southern border with as many as 19,500 illegal aliens from other terrorist countries. Over 10,000 of those were middle-eastern terrorists. Millions of pounds of drugs, cocaine, meth, heroin, crack, guns, and marijuana crossed into the U.S. from the southern border.
  11. The National Policy Institute, estimates that the total cost of mass deportation would be between $206 and $230 billion, or an average cost of between $41 and $46 billion annually over a five year period.
  12. In 2006, illegal aliens sent home $65 BILLION in “remittances” (un taxed money) back to their countries of origin, to their families and friends.
  13. The dark side of illegal immigration: Nearly one million sex crimes are committed by illegal immigrants in the United States!

 The total cost to US citizens and taxpayers is a whopping $538.3 BILLION DOLLARS A YEAR …. That is $1/2 TRILLION $taxes$ per year!
