2 billion alone for my little state and we aren't even close to the border.

A lot of money can be saved by deporting them all, why do we have to pay for them.

1.6 BILLION for Colorado.

It's a disgrace that our elected officials allow this "redistribution" of wealth from the American taxpayer to criminals from the third world.

They need jail time for their crimes against the American Taxpayer.

In all fairness you need to also look at the revenue they generate, which most places estimate to be around 12 billion in state and local taxes.

You have to look at all the numbers to estimate the full impact. The 12B does not account for ALL the revenue they generate, it's a complicated situation.

I am not using this to justify anything, just that you can't look at half an equation and say that's the answer.

They cost way more than they contribute.

Besides being illegal, they also take jobs from Americans (who are currently on welfare).

Again:

My point is you need to look at the whole picture and ALL the numbers. Not just part.

My point is that even looking at the "whole picture" they are a huge burden on the American Taxpayer.

If you have proof that they somehow make a net positive contribution (money) to our country, please provide the evidence.

I don't need proof for something I didn't say.

So then you agree that they are a net financial drain on our society?
