Several years ago, it was estimated that illegal aliens cost US taxpayers over $100 billion a YEAR.
Most of that is to pay for the extra education, healthcare, welfare and needed law enforcement.
In addition to the financial costs, illegal aliens cost Americans in many other ways.
I’ve seen entire sections of cities totally transformed into something ugly and dangerous due to the influx of illegal aliens.
Worse yet is the growing number of victims of physical and sexual assaults, robberies, beatings, rapes and murders, committed by illegal aliens.
Those costs are often permanent, disastrous and cannot be fixed with money.
(Independent Sentinel) – In a new report from The Center for Immigration Studies, the researchers found that there are about 300,000 births to illegal immigrants each year at a cost of about $12,000 each. Two-thirds of them are covered by the taxpayer for a total cost of $2.5 billion per year.
That is more than we’ve spent on new wall construction to date, researcher Steve Camarota said.
“If we have a situation where illegal immigrants can get everything from drivers licenses to various benefits to college tuition, and there are jurisdictions that won’t cooperate with law enforcement, it’s almost amazing we don’t have even more illegal immigrants”, stated Mr. Camarota.
Then there are the child rapists…
My old neighborhood in Mesa, Arizona was a great family friendly and safe neighborhood 20 years ago.
My daughters used to play outside and walk to high school.
Today, the entire neighborhood looks like a Mexican ghetto, filled with trash, graffiti and neglected homes and yards.
Police and friends tell me that the neighborhood isn’t even safe to drive through in the daytime and that property values have plummeted.
There have been several murders and a number of rapes, sexual assaults and numerous burglaries and they are mostly due to illegal aliens.
These are the people that Democrats want to protect and allow to remain in OUR country.
I hope you remember that when you go tot the polls next month.
