The high cost of the illegal invasion

By 10 Comments 1,124 views


Barack Obama and democrats in Congress have all but sent up rockets inviting illegals to invade the US.

In truth, false messages are being sent to American voters, while the incoming wave of refugees are getting the real message loud and clear. The same Washington Times article includes a quote from an unnamed Administration official who admitted “more than 50 percent of children who illegally cross the border alone will be allowed to remain in the United States.” A 50-50 shot at getting your kid residency plus benefits in the United States looks pretty good to people trapped in the violent squalor of Central America, stuck between corrupt governments and trigger-happy drug gangs. And really, that’s a ridiculous under-estimation of the odds of success. The real “repatriation” rate for families traveling with children won’t crack 10 percent, and it’ll be even less for unaccompanied minors.

democrats are big on largesse but they never talk about the elephant in the room- the cost- and the cost is onerous.

The cost of harboring illegal immigrants in the United States is a staggering $113 billion a year — an average of $1,117 for every “native-headed” household in America — according to a study conducted by the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR).

The study, a copy of which was provided to, “is the first and most detailed look at the costs of illegal immigration ever done,” says Bob Dane, director of communications at FAIR, a conservative organization that seeks to end almost all immigration to the U.S.

This is the big one

The single largest cost to the government of illegal immigration, according to the report, is an estimated $52 billion spent on schooling the children of illegals. “Nearly all those costs are absorbed by state and local governments,’ the report states.

Because this is borne directly by local property tax payers- ONLY. There is no way an illegal alien with four children is going to be able to contribute anywhere near the costs of education his dependents demand from local property tax payers.

The cost of illegals is often equal to the budget deficits of states:

Moreover, the study’s breakdown of costs on a state-by-state basis shows that in states with the largest number of illegals, the costs of illegal immigration are often greater than current, crippling budget deficits. In Texas, for example, the additional cost of immigration, $16.4 billion, is equal to the state’s current budget deficit; in California the additional cost of illegal immigration, $21.8 billion, is $8 billion more than the state’s current budget deficit of $13.8 billion; and in New York, the $6.8 billion deficit is roughly two-thirds the $9.5 billion yearly cost of its illegal population, according to Jack Martin, the researcher who completed the study.

Illegal alien supporters employ a pretzel logic:

But FAIR’s critics said the report wrongly included American-born children of undocumented workers in its study.

“The single biggest ‘expense’ it attributes to unauthorized immigrants is the education of their children, yet most of these children are native-born, U.S. citizens who will grow up to be taxpaying adults,” said Walter Ewing, a senior researcher at the American Immigration Council. “It is disingenuous to count the cost of investing in the education of these children, so that they will earn higher incomes and pay more in taxes when they are adults, as if it were nothing more than a cost incurred by their parents.”

But it IS a cost incurred by their parents. It is not erased.

The news is not getting any better. The current illegal invasion is expected to cost us an extra $2 billion next year. Despite that, the Obama administration continues to send more than $4 billion per year in fraudulent tax credits to illegal aliens.

This bombshell dropped on Monday in Washington, D.C., causing outrage throughout the halls of Congress, and now beyond, to the “genuine” taxpayers who have been robbed all across America.

Investigative television reporter Bob Segall of Indianapolis NBC affiliate WTHR TV Channel 13, was contacted by a long-time central Indiana tax preparer, who blew the whistle on a multi-billion dollar tax fraud about which the IRS has done nothing, according to the TV news show video segment that aired on Monday.

“There is not a doubt in my mind there’s huge fraud taking place here,” he said, slowly flipping through the pages of a [heavily redacted] tax return.

“We’re talking about a multi-billion dollar fraud scheme here that’s taking place and no one is talking about it,” he said.

The scheme involves illegal immigrants that are filing tax returns, claiming child credits for multiple dependents under their support in “their” U.S. household, and collecting enormous cash refunds–such as one persons tax return that showed income of over $14,000, who collected a cash refund of over $10,300.

Lately Obama has been whining about Congress not taking up immigration reform. democrats continue to rely heavily on the stupidity of their supporters who believe there are no immigration laws now. One has to wonder why Obama can’t use his pen and his phone to simply not enforce the laws which he insists are hamstringing his efforts to take action.

The truth is he has no intention of deporting any of these future democrat voters. I would not be surprised to see him declare them eligible to vote before November.

One blue dog democrat claims Obama is “one step” behind on the immigration crisis. No, he’s not. This is the plan.

If liberals really care, let them take their money with them to Central American countries and pay to make things better for the children there. Otherwise, the illegals will not stop coming.

    I read where the current invasion is costing $250 per day per criminal invader – a ‘cool’ $90,000 per year!
    And you know that if the government has anything to do with it – the true cost is 2-3 times as much.

    As for these other ”children,” Art Del Cueto, president of the National Border Patrol Council Local 2544 in Tucson, Arizona said that officers who recognize gang tattoos on the minors are supposed to treat them like everyone else.

    No one knows what all this will cost.
    We can’t even properly estimate the costs of the diseases being spread among the routes of these illegals.

    @Budvarakbar: Much much higher my friend. They will receive free education, health care, and over work our law enforcement agencies!! The ILLEGALS who have already broke our laws are doing that now!! Visit any jail, school, or Hospital ER here in San Diego county and you will witness this waste!!

    Backlash Stirs in U.S. Against Foreign Worker Visas

    But amid calls for expanding the nation’s so-called H-1B visa program, there is growing pushback from Americans who argue the program has been hijacked by staffing companies that import cheaper, lower-level workers to replace more expensive U.S. employees — or keep them from getting hired in the first place.

    “It’s getting pretty frustrating when you can’t compete on salary for a skilled job,” said Rich Hajinlian, a veteran computer programmer from the Boston area. “You hear references all the time that these big companies … can’t find skilled workers. I am a skilled worker.”

    Hajinlian, 56, who develops his own web applications on the side, said he applied for a job in April through a headhunter and that the potential client appeared interested, scheduling a longer interview. Then, said Hajinlian, the headhunter called back and said the client had gone with an H-1B worker whose annual salary was about $10,000 less.

    “I didn’t even get a chance to negotiate down,” he said.

    The H-1B program allows employers to temporarily hire workers in specialty occupations. The government issues up to 85,000 H-1B visas to businesses every year, and recipients can stay up to six years. Although no one tracks exactly how many H-1B holders are in the U.S., experts estimate there are at least 600,000 at any one time. Skilled guest workers can also come in on other types of visas….(snip)

    …Critics say there is no across-the-board shortage of American tech workers, and that if there were, wages would be rising rapidly. Instead, wage gains for software developers have been modest, while wages have fallen for programmers.

    The liberal Economic Policy Institute reported last year that only half of U.S. college graduates in science, engineering and technology found jobs in those fields and that at least one third of IT jobs were going to foreign guest workers.

    The top users of H-1B visas aren’t even tech companies like Google and Facebook. Eight of the 10 biggest H1-B users last year were outsourcing firms that hire out thousands of mostly lower- and mid-level tech workers to corporate clients, according to an analysis of federal data by Ron Hira, an associate professor of public policy at Rochester Institute of Technology. The top 10 firms accounted for about a third of the H-1Bs allotted last year.

    The debate over whether foreign workers are taking jobs isn’t new, but for years it centered on low-wage sectors like agriculture and construction. The high-skilled visas have thrust a new sector of American workers into the fray: the middle class.

    Last month, three tech advocacy groups launched a labor boycott against Infosys, IBM and the global staffing and consulting company ManpowerGroup, citing a “pattern of excluding U.S. workers from job openings on U.S soil.”

    They say Manpower, for example, last year posted U.S. job openings in India but not in the United States.

    “We have a shortage in the industry all right — a shortage of fair and ethical recruiting and hiring,” said Donna Conroy, director of Bright Future Jobs, a group of tech professionals fighting to end what it calls “discriminatory hiring that is blocking us … from competing for jobs we are qualified to do.”

    Which is why the crony capitalist cabal in Washington DC and the US Chamber of Commerce want more illegal immigration and H1-B visas. They want to screw Americans out of jobs for the elite’s own profits.

    It’s also one reason why leftist leaders support illegal immigration- it helps to drive down wages making it easier to divide and conquer America along class lines thus setting the stage for the all elusive Marxist utopia that they can never attain.

    Ted Kennedy on the 1986 Simpson-Mazzoli Bill,Quote:
    “This amnesty will give citizenship to only 1.1 to 1.3 million illegal aliens. We will secure the borders henceforth. We will never again bring forward another amnesty bill like this.”

    What a great teller of fortunes Ted was. So we really have no illegal problem, this is just a faux news story?
    The borders are secure? What a guy.

    The rather overused term “tone-deaf” doesn’t even begin to describe the performance from White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest today in defense of Team Obama’s actions to combat the current crisis on the border. In a rather shocking display of sheer lunacy,

    Earnest insisted that “we’re seeing the benefit” of the Obama administration’s investment in border security right before our very eyes (see the video above)

    . If that’s the case, can we please get our taxpayer money back? Sheesh. We are indeed seeing the result of the administration’s efforts — or lack thereof — to address our porous border. But “benefit” is the last adjective in the world I’d ever use to describe it.


    The most tone deaf administration in the history of this nation.

    How can we even predict what this will cost us?

    Obama’s request averages out to $67,000 per illegal.
    It would be better to offer them each $10,000 to LEAVE and be done with them!

    Add to this that blacks are starting to scream about where their equal money is and the OWS movement might look cheap in cost in comparison….because blacks don’t just scream and they don’t just demonstrate…..they riot.
