Gee, that's what, a whole 2.5% of their red ink??

I'd bet they'll save 3 times that amount just from lowered spending in the schools, not to mention all the savings at the emergency rooms and the jails.

less illegals=savings of American tax dollars over all.
Spending some now, to deport, and keep them out,
will absolutely benifit Americans in the long run.
By doing nothing and allowing the influx of illegals
to keep growing.. will cost us 10 fold in just the next
few years for what a completed fence will cost.
As time goes by.. deport-as-caught will reduce tax
dollars on illegals as more and more are sent over the fence
without a return ticket!
