Wondering how illegal immigration is affecting your pocket book? In 2013, taxpayers shouldered $100 billion in state spending on illegal aliens!

Interesting source, I'll bookmark that! Yeah, I just find it distressing to see the numbers, I have to live with it everyday with it in my face!

This is just the tip of the iceberg, illegal immigration probably costs a lot more than what is admitted. Consider the cost of schooling all the children, and giving them free meals. Consider how children who don't speak English drag down the education system, and cost tax payers billions. Also consider, refugees are not included in this scenario. Refugees get housing allowance, food stamps, heating assistance, WIC program, free ESL classes, etc, all subsidized by the tax payers.

If you click on each state, it breaks down the costs of education, healthcare etc. etc.

I do agree about the refugees but most of the stats on each state are not up to date.

I've seen some of the stats going back as far as 2010.

Funny how people are losing their minds over the cost of a wall (IF we have to pay for it all by ourselves, which is unlikely) but not the cost of NOT having a wall. $21 billion is a drop in the bucket compared to what we spend on these people in our country every year.

Are we bringing up illegal immigration again because Trump is in a heap of trouble? I think illegal immigrants are the least of our worries right now.

No, we were bringing it up for years way before Trump, and he was the only candidate who addressed it which is why he won. We won't stop bringing it up until it's actually solved. (Solved = laws enforced, not amnesty.)

Illegals have it better than Americans. They apply for every known freebee and welfare to cover all their living expenses and lie.. and work under the table. That 60 thousand dollar truck was bought with your taxes out of YOUR paycheck.

Illegals like to shop in the higher end stores. They like to live big on American tax dollars, leaving the American working poor with crumbs.
