Can't argue with the math. How can any American condone this?

Quote:
Recent estimates released by the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) suggest that Arizona’s cost of illegal immigration exceeds $2.7 billion annually. Six years ago, the organization put that cost at about $1.3 billion.
Regarding specific budgetary areas, FAIR has found that K-12 education of the children of illegal aliens costs the state’s taxpayers nearly $1.4 billion. Among other state expenses, Medicaid, SCHIP, incarceration and welfare cost approximately $1 billion.
By contrast, the report found that state tax revenue collected from illegal immigrants amounts to only about $143 million annually, leaving a deficit of more than a $2.7 billion.

Actually, most statistics show that the average undocumented immigrant pays more in taxes than than he or she uses in services.

Do you have a link to back this up as MANY statistics show quite the contrary. If you do a search in here, you'll find plenty which support showing the economic drain illegal aliens cause in this Country.

I'd like to see those stats also. If they are produced it will probably be from some far left, illegal alien sympathizer source.

FAIR does not have an excellent reputation for anything other than furthering their agenda.

The nature of the data makes it likely to be incomplete. At this point I don't trust any of the statistics on the cost or benefits of undocumented migrants because it's unreliable.

Maybe a single male that is employed with a tax id. Everyone else is either bilking the govt by getting paid under the table or has children getting free meals and a free education and medical. Once you factor those in it's impossible NOT to see how the US tax payers are getting fleeced.

Once you include the fact that most Illegals paying taxes have committed id theft the laundry list of broken laws starts to grow.

Are you serious? LOL Are you familiar with how illegal immigrants can get all their tax monies back and more?
