They take some of our jobs. And that is a VERY sore spot for a job seeker like me.

Angry Illegal Immigration

To Just Kate

Great Post Just Kate. This is also a subject I am very serious and mad about and I feel you are hardly reaching the total figures. You are only addressing the cost of deportation/border control and building of the fence.
How about the cost of education and medical care, for both the illegals and our own citizens who are catching all the diseases brought from across the border.
And all the cost as a direct result of the replacement of our own work force which is dependent on unemployment compensation and evenually on welfare
and public assistance. You should investigate all these figures and I bet you will end up on the Trillions of Dollars. Have fun doing it .

The cost of medical and education was included, however I didn't include the cost of incarcerating illegal alien criminals and about 30% of our prison population is illegal aliens. I don't have hard figures for the number of jobs they've taken nor the number for total cost of depressed wages.
IF the senate bill passes, the cost will be in trillions as the illegals become eligable for medicare and social security.

Default Here is a Heritage Found. Study on the cost of the amnesty


YouTube - Heritage In Focus: Cost of Low-Skilled Immigrants

Incredible how the taxpayers already feed, clothe, medicate, and educate illegals and Congress wants more!
