    Illegal-Alien Burden on Taxpayers Dwarfs Cost of Deportation

    CNN targets removal price tag, ignores annual $113 billion impact of illegal population

    by Margaret Menge | Updated 14 Apr 2017 at 10:45 AM

    CNN reported this week that the U.S. government spends more than $10,000 on average to deport each illegal alien, the implication being that taxpayers pay a heavy price for the removal of those in the country illegally.

    But a group that advocates for enforcing immigration law says the cost of removal is a bargain.

    ďIt costs a lot more to allow people to remain here,Ē says Ira Mehlman, a spokesman for the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR).

    How much more? FAIR estimates that the burden placed on U.S. taxpayers by the roughly 13 million illegal immigrants residing in the country stands at roughly $113 billion a year.

    The biggest cost-driver is education, according to a detailed 2010 analysis from the organization. It costs more than $50 billion each year to educate illegal immigrant children and the children of illegal immigrants, researchers found ó with most paid through local property taxes and by states, with the federal government chipping in more than $1 billion for Title I programs.

    Somewhat shockingly, the state of Iowa alone spends more than $300 million a year to educate English Language Learners, the vast majority of whom are children of illegal immigrants.

    In Florida and Illinois, itís almost $3 billion, according to a 2016 FAIR report, which looks only at education costs. In Texas, itís $7.5 billion, and in California itís $16 billion. Every year.

    Medicaid for the children of illegal immigrants costs $1.6 billion a year, according to FAIRís estimates, and U.S. taxpayers spend another $1.2 billion a year on Medicaid for childbirths: Medicaid pays because it is assumed that the children who are born will be U.S. citizens, under the ďanchor-babyĒ policy.

    But the $113 billion likely doesnít even cover all the costs associated with illegal immigration.

    It doesnít cover the cost to U.S. taxpayers, for example, to prosecute crimes committed by illegal aliens.

    ďSome of these costs we donít know, so we canít report,Ē says Spencer Raley, a FAIR researcher who is working on an update to the 2010 report, to be released later this year.

    It also doesnít cover the loss to American businesses of remittances, the amount of money earned here by immigrants, many of them illegal, that is not spent here in our communities but rather sent back to families in Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, Haiti, etc. The World Bank reports that Mexico alone gets more than $25 billion a year in remittances from the U.S.

    The researchers, furthermore, didnít calculate the effect of illegal-immigrant workers in pushing down wages for Americans, or displacing them in some jobs.

    Nor did the FAIR research include the effects of illegal-immigrant criminal gangs on the American economy, or local communities.

    ďThatís another thing that we would love to include in our cost studies, because I assume that would be billions more,Ē says Raley.

    On deportations, FAIR is watching closely, but the organization isnít sure what the Trump administration will do.

    It's way, way, way, way cheaper to deport illegal aliens than allow them to stay here. The costs aren't on the same page, they're not even in the same book.

    CNN lives on another planet, the cost of a one time deportation versus a lifetime of benefits for an entire family is night and day. It costs US taxpayers billions and billions of dollars to support these freeloaders, when we can just deport them for the price of a plane or bus ticket. CNN are idiots !!!

    CNN is filled with air-heads. Truly stupid people. They can't keep words straight, numbers straight, thoughts straight, they're people you wouldn't hire to work in a regular business. They would never pass a polygraph test, either (required to work for Border Patrol).

    In sum, they're dregs.

    Wolf Blitzer, Anderson Cooper, Jake Tapper, Van Jones, Don Lemon, Dana Bash, etc., etc. I rest my case.

    What price do you put on losing your country to people who have no allegiance to the country and disdain for the law?

    CNN, or the media, doesn't seem to mind the billions we are spending interfering in other countries' affairs? These actions bring nothing good - only bad - to the American people.

    I do think, though, that simple enforcement of the laws, would get a lot of them to go home. If they couldn't work, lcouldn't draw benefits, were charged for fake ID, etc., many would go home.
