Illegals Cost Taxpayers $113 Billion a Year: Why Does No One Care?


President Obama dumped a real dilly on Congress for Valentine’s Day. That being a $3.73 trillion dollar budget that actually increases the deficit in 2012, but which attacks the problem with tax increases later on.

Tax increases? During a recession?

Obama’s proposal confirms that the president remains stuck in the quagmire of a “learning curve” gone amuck. It also proves that his short-term memory is wonky as well.

Does the date November 2, 2010 mean anything to you, Sir?

What about the word “shellacking” ? Ring any bells?

While Obama foolishly proposes to tax America to ruin, Republican gladiators in the U.S. House, led by the ever-weepy John Boehner, scramble frantically to find 35-60 billion dollars to fulfill campaign pledges to cut spending.

Given the chaotic state of the nation’s finances, one would think one of the newly ordained Tea Party warriors would take note of the fact that America shells out more than $100 billion per year (after taxes) to support illegal aliens.

Invading criminals who should not even be here cost American taxpayers more than $100 billion a year! HELLO!

Details concerning this outrage can be found here, which is summarized, in part, herewith:

“(Washington, D.C July 6, 2010) A new study released today by the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) estimates that illegal immigration now costs federal and local taxpayers $113 billion a year. The report, The Fiscal Burden of Illegal Immigration on U.S. Taxpayers, is the most comprehensive analysis of how much the estimated 13 million illegal aliens and their U.S.-born children cost federal, state and local governments.

The cost estimates are based on an extensive analysis of federal, state and local spending data. The Fiscal Burden of Illegal Immigration on U.S. Taxpayers examines dozens of government programs that are available to illegal aliens and their U.S.-born children, both legally and fraudulently. The report provides detailed analysis of the impact of illegal immigration on education, health care, law enforcement and justice, public assistance, and other government programs.

The report also accounts for taxes paid by illegal aliens about $13 billion a year, resulting in a net cost to taxpayers of about $100 billion. However, the study notes that government at all levels would likely have realized significantly greater revenues if jobs held by illegal aliens had been filled by legal U.S. residents instead.”

This grim news is made all of the more gloomy by a report,  which documents the fact that illegal aliens cost taxpayers $600 million a year in Los Angeles County alone!

How in the world can any elected official who claims to be interested in fiscal responsibility blatantly ignore the savings that could be realized by enforcing existing laws and deporting illegal aliens?

    Sen. Hatch’s (R-UT) this week will be introducing major legislation that will Strengthening Our Commitment to Legal Immigration and America’s Security Act, abolishing the Visa Lottery, strengthen interior enforcement, and require the implementation of an exit procedure for foreign visitors (of paramount importance to enforce) to the United States. By means this is not a perfect bill, but it face the major problems associated with the illegal alien invasion. The commitment comes in these forms: 1. Restrict the Justice Department and Department of Homeland Security from issuing a mass amnesty to illegal immigrants through the use of delayed action. Deportation cases could only be deferred after being measured on a case-by-case basis. 2. Requires State, county and municipal police to participate in Secure Communities or 287(g) to fully conform to federal immigration enforcement agents.

    3. Requires the Department of Homeland Security to create a mandatory exit formula for all foreign visitors to the United States. 4. Eliminates the Visa Lottery that issues 50,000 green-cards despite of the individual’s educational or economic attainment. 5. Requires the Department of Health and Human Services to draft a directive every year detailing the dollar amount of federal welfare benefits received by foreign national households in each state and in Washington DC. 6. Allows states to maintain receiving federal matching dollars for covering legal immigrant children and legal immigrant pregnant women, but only after the state has provided the federal government with evidence that at least 90% of its eligible U.S. citizen children and expectant women have been covered by either CHIP or Medicaid. 7. Allows authorities to charge individuals who have used stolen identities, who are also being charged with another felony, to be charged with aggravated identity theft.

    However Senator Hatch doesn’t cover the massive expenditures endured by hard working taxpayers, whose money is extracted by the IRS to pay for the annual projection of 300.000 pregnant mothers who enter America via the airports, ships or across the poorly fenced border regions. Now relating to this issue of birthright citizenship for any female who can slip across our borders, the Republican Party has introduced a bill to close this loophole, by an amendment or revision of the 14th Amendment. Of course this controversial Amendment is causing consternation through both political parties, specifically the Liberal progressives, all though their rants have not halted over the 63 co-sponsors of H.R.140.

    Titled the Birthright citizenship act has become a multiple billion dollar entitlement that must be reduced. The Birthright Citizenship Act of 2011 would add to the existing federal code, a rider that requires at least one parent of a new born to be a U.S. citizen or legal permanent resident in order for the new born to receive instant citizenship. The Fourteenth Amendment extends citizenship to all persons born in the U.S. and “subject to the jurisdiction”; but it also grants Congress the empowerment to enforce and define the provisions of the amendment. Since the Civil Rights Act of 1866, Congress has defined Birthright Citizenship through appropriate legislation, which for decades has granted citizenship to newborns with both parents’ illegal aliens, foreign tourists or temporary foreign job seekers and students.

    The Fourteenth Amendment gives Congress the right to define birthright citizenship differently. As an addition to stopping undisclosed clandestine amnesties Rep. Phil Gingrey (R-Ga.) has introduced H.R. 692 that would purge the extended family visa categories (e.g., married sons and daughters of citizens, etc.), thus ending “chain migration” as suggested by the bi-partisan Barbara Jordan Commission in 1997. Current immigration law allows U.S. citizens and legal permanent residents to sponsor non-nuclear, adult family members, creating an endless chain of mass legal immigration, which has snowballed. Rep. Gingrey’s bill would end this practice by disallowing all adult family members from receiving legal permanent residency. America has always been sympathetic to the refugees and asylum seekers, but the unfettered movement of economic illegal immigrants is out of control and diluting in large dollars to the GDP.

    The original Ronald Reagan 1986 amnesty was truly a travesty of our laws, which were intentionally neglected by the US Government and the employers. You can do your part as a voter and as pro-sovereignty American to stop this behemoth drain on the federal and municipalities that are straining to offer entitlements to seniors, veterans and other poverty stricken categories. We can no longer accept illegal aliens to our table as free meals, health care, education. Call your local Representative and more so you’re Congressional House or Senate member through the Washington Switchboard 202-224-3121.
