    Record $135 billion a year for illegal immigration, average $8,075 each, $25,000 in N

    Record $135 billion a year for illegal immigration, average $8,075 each, $25,000 in NY

    by Paul Bedard | Sep 27, 2017, 6:30 AM

    The swelling population of illegal immigrants and their kids is costing American taxpayers $135 billion a year, the highest ever, driven by free medical care, education and a huge law enforcement bill, according to the the most authoritative report on the issue yet.

    And despite claims from pro-illegal immigration advocates that the aliens pay significant off-setting taxes back to federal, state and local treasuries, the Federation for American Immigration Reform report tallied just $19 billion, making the final hit to taxpayers about $116 billion.

    State and local governments are getting ravaged by the costs, at over $88 billion. The federal government, by comparison, is getting off easy at $45 billion in costs for illegals.

    President Trump, Attorney General Jeff Sessions and conservatives in Congress are moving aggressively to deal with illegals, especially those with long criminal records. But their effort is being fought by courts and some 300 so-called "sanctuary communities" that refuse to work with federal law enforcement.



    The added burden on taxpayers and the unfairness to those who have applied to come into the United States through legal channels is also driving the administration's immigration crackdown.

    The report, titled "The Fiscal Burden Of Illegal Immigration on U.S. Taxpayers," is the most comprehensive cost tally from FAIR. It said that the costs have jumped about $3 billion in four years and will continue to surge unless illegal immigration is stopped. It was provided in advance exclusively to Secrets.



    "Clearly, the cost of doing nothing to stop illegal immigration is far too high," said FAIR Executive Director Dan Stein. "President Trump has laid out a comprehensive strategy to regain control of illegal immigration and bring down these costs," said Stein. "Building the wall, enhancing interior enforcement and mandating national E-Verify will go a long way in bringing these ridiculously high costs under control," he added.

    Over 68 often shocking pages, FAIR documents the average $8,075 in state, local and federal spending for each of the of 12.5 million illegal immigrants and their 4.2 million citizen children.

    Broadly, the costs include $29 billion in medical care, $23 billion for law enforcement, $9 billion in welfare, $46 billion for education.



    Just consider the cost of teaching an illegal alien child who doesn't speak English. FAIR estimates an average cost of over $12,000 a year, and that can reach $25,000 in New York. Add to that welfare, health care, school lunches, and the per student price soars.

    In state costs alone, California leads the list at $23 billion per year, followed by Texas at $11 billion, and New York at $7.4 billion.

    And it also documents the taxes paid and how they don't come close to offsetting the costs. What's more, FAIR noted that 35 percent of the illegal population operate in an underground economy hidden from tax collectors. And worse, employers hire illegals and either pay them cheaply or under the table.

    "The United States recoups only about 14 percent of the amount expended annually on illegal aliens. If the same jobs held by illegal aliens were filled by legal workers, at the prevailing market wage, it may safely be presumed that federal, state and local governments would receive higher tax payments," said FAIR.

    Key findings pulled from the report:

    *The staggering total costs of illegal immigrants and their children outweigh the taxes paid to federal and state governments by a ratio of roughly 7 to 1, with costs at nearly $135 billion compared to tax revenues at nearly $19 billion.

    *The nearly $135 billion paid out by federal and state and local taxpayers to cover the cost of the presence of 12.5 million illegal aliens and their 4.2 million citizen children amounts to approximately $8,075 per illegal alien and citizen child prior to taxes paid, or $6,940 per person after taxes are paid.

    *On the federal level, medical ($17.14 billion) is by far the highest cost, with law enforcement coming second ($13.15 billion) and general government services ($8 billion) third.

    *At the state and local level, education ($44.4 billion) was by far the largest expense, followed by general public services ($18.5 billion) and medical ($12.1 billion).

    *The top three states based on total cost to state taxpayers for illegal immigrants and their children: California ($23 billion); Texas ($10.9 billion), and New York ($7.5 billion).

    Not surprising - illegals are everywhere, working, plopping out kids yearly at our expense and not just one or 2 per woman; the English teachers needed do not come cheap either. It is outrageous! They want to cut everything they can from Americans & senors yet illegals are able to reproduce on our dollar.

    People need to readily know these figures rather than the constant blather of "illegals pay taxes and contribute". They contribute to crime, drugs and enable deadly drug cartels to have cover and operate in USA, especially the sanctuary cities. They suppress our wages and endanger our lives. They are welcomed by the chamber of commerce for CHEAP labor and consumer needs - a total sellout of Americans and really criminal to harm American citizens this way; they are aiding and abetting, breaking our immigration laws - fire all politicians wanting amnesty/open borders - UN-AMERICAN.

    There is no upside to these people still being in our country. They must ALL be deported post haste. If one of 'em finds a cure for cancer, it will be a global cure they can sell from anywhere in the world, it does NOT have to be from the United States. There is no contribution by any of them that warrants 1 more day of illegal presence in the United States.

    And I'm betting if we get all these illegal aliens out of our country and allow AMERICANS into those jobs, we'll be miles and dollars ahead to Make America Great Again, probably find the deliberately elusive cure to cancer and solve a ton of other issues and problems to boot!!

    NOW GET THEM OUT OF HERE!!!

    There you go - add to that the so called improvement in healthcare over aca that has failed and you have an even greater burden on local/state aka more tax raises as the federal gov't drops aid to states. trump should come up with better plans to endorse than burdening the states with healthcare costs. LIKE DEPORT ALL ILLEGALS AND THEIR ANCHORS! Not just the hundred here and there "known" criminals here illegally - ALL ILLEGALS! We want this burden removed and immigration laws enforced TODAY!

    So true, it probably doesn't fit their agenda. Did hear this talked about on a talk radio show today. Find I learn so much from talk radio.
