Why Is Cost of Illegal Immigration Ignored In Debt Ceiling Debate?
Simple, it doesn't fit the mainstream media's narrative that these new Democrat voters do not negatively impact the government's budget and we should just ignore the inconvenient, pesky immigration laws. Its even worse in California where a significant percent of the deficit is due to funding various aspects of this issue.

The true numbers of illegals are unknown and IMO the fed would like nothing more than to keep it unknown. If unknown then a true accounting of the associated costs becomes impossible. The very nature of the problem makes keeping a head count impossible.

Oh, wow, the bilingual printing gambit again.

Hint: printing stuff in spanish is (approximately) 0.00000001% of the federal budget. But seeing those funny spanish words gets the haters mad so it generates like 50% of the bellyaching.

Of course they're "bogus" since they're exaggerations. But I don't have any obligation to support an argument here since someone else made the claim that such printing is a HUGE DRAIN that should be of UTMOST IMPORTANCE.

Where are your numbers?

It is a huge drain.
You must hire someone & used additional resources to accomodate them.
Its like taking care of another third world country in your backyard.

American taxpayers spend $113 billion annually subsidizing illegal immigration and padding the pockets of businesses addicted to cheap labor. Taxpayers at the state and local levels bear the brunt, providing $84 billion in services annually while the federal government spends $29 billion. The latter figure is – incidentally -- almost exactly equal to the interest payment on the total federal debt this past April. Of course, the debt continues to grow uncontrollably because the government must borrow to keep up with, among other things, the growing cost of illegal immigration.

OK, it's a "huge" drain, let's SEE YOUR NUMBERS. You're making the claim, BACK IT UP.

Quoting some unnamed source (where's your link?) claiming something about TOTAL COSTS doesn't say anything about spanish printing costs.
