So much for the tired old argument by illegal supporters that illegals don't use taxpayer funded services and don't cost us money.

. . . after a freshman GOP lawmaker forced state officials to reveal the state spent $93 million on health care for illegal aliens last year.
What a disgusting abuse of taxpayers. And, this is only one state. When will citizens demand an end to illegal immigration and the fleecing of America? Yet, while CNN can try to tug at our heartstrings with sob story after sob story on illegal aliens, I bet they won't report on this.

You said it, what a friggin disgusting disgrace of abuse of hard taxpayers dollars. Why do some just don't get it is beyond comprehension.

As you stand, and this in only one state. can you imagine. This Country is only going to get much worse, because it seems the people currently in power, could give a rat's ass about illegal immigration, and sorry of their tired excuses.

This was in 2009:

Quote:
$11 billion to $22 billion is spent on welfare to illegal aliens each year by state governments.
Illegal households only pay about one-third the amount of federal taxes that non-illegal households pay.
Illegal households create a net fiscal deficit at the federal level of more than $10 billion a year. If given amnesty, this number could grow to more than $29 billion.
$1.9 billion dollars a year is spent on food-assistance programs such as food stamps, WIC and free school lunches for illegal aliens.
$1.6 billion is spent on the federal prison and court system for illegal aliens.
$2.5 billion dollars a year is spent on Medicaid for illegal aliens.
About 21 percent of the population of U.S. prisons is classified as “noncitizens” from Mexico, Colombia, Cuba and the Dominican Republic. About 5 percent is listed as “unknown.”

This doesn't include how much money is sent out of the US.
