$ Costs of illegal immigration vs Irag & Afghanistan war
Isn't it convenient that DEMOCRATS and the globalist Republicans refuse to acknowledge that the costs of illegal immigration far exceed these wars?

OK, the latest figures from Washington shows we are spending $12 billion a month on the Afghanistan and Iraq Wars.
Now here’s the latest numbers we are spending on illegal immigrants to be in our country:
1) $2.2 billion a year is spent on food assistance programs (WIC, Food Stamps, free school lunches, etc.) for illegal immigrants.
2) $2.5 billion a year is spent on Medicaid for illegal immigrants.
3) $12 billion a year is spent on primary and secondary school education for children here illegally and who cannot speak a word of English.
4) $17 billion a year is spent for education for the American-born children of illegal Immigrants.
5) $3 million a day — yes, a day — is spent to incarcerate illegal immigrants
6) $90 billion a year is spent on illegal immigrants for Welfare and Social Services by the American taxpayer.
7) $200 billion a year in suppressed American wages are caused by the illegal immigrants.
The illegal immigrants 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 United States.
In all, it cost us taxpayers $325 billion a year, or $27 billion dollars a month to have illegal immigrants in our country.
So, the $12 billion we are using each month to fight terrorists is less than half that to support the illegal immigrants have in our country.
The federal government has stated it would cost us taxpayers $225 billion (a one-time deal) to deport all the illegal immigrants.
I personally think we would be far ahead to get rid of all the illegal immigrants, how about you?
