The Real Costs of Illegal Immigration

The Real Costs of Illegal Immigration

(WatchDogNews.org) – One of the reasons US voters elected President Donald Trump is because he promised that he’d crack down on illegal aliens coming to our country. The Left, meanwhile, refuses to acknowledge these people are costing Americans and we’re not just talking about money.

Financial Cost

The Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) recently reported 10 of the smallest states in our country are paying $454 million annually. That’s 200 times more than Montana’s Veterans Affairs program’s budget.

The study, “Small Immigrant Populations, Huge Impacts,” found nearly half a million foreigners living in 10 states:

  • North Dakota
  • South Dakota
  • New Hampshire
  • Montana
  • Mississippi
  • Maine
  • Alaska
  • West Virginia
  • Wyoming
  • Vermont

They each cost taxpayers between $4,000 and $6,500 every year. They also drive down wages and suck up educational resources for their kids who are allowed to go to school for free.

Small states aren’t the only ones being hurt though. In 2017, FAIR found illegals cost $116 billion for a single year. The radical Left claims this tax burden is eliminated when aliens pay taxes, but that’s not true. In fact, many immigrants receive cashback thanks to tax credits meant to benefit American taxpayers.

Human Cost

Illegals don’t just cost Americans money every year. Innocent Americans are murdered by these people who just invited themselves to our country. Recently, 92-year-old Maria Fuentes was brutally killed by a man from Guyana who shouldn’t have ever been on the streets of NYC.

President Trump invited Jody Jones to the State of the Union in 2020 to highlight this cost. Jones’ brother, Rocky, died after being shot by an illegal alien in California. In 2015, Kathryn Steinle was walking in San Francisco when she was killed by the reckless actions of a man who’d been deported multiple times.

It’s not just American citizens, either. Migrants die all the time on their way to America. Women are even assaulted.

President Trump is the only politician in a very long time who is trying to solve this problem and save lives. It’d be nice if Democrats stopped reading their fake news and faced reality: the cost of illegal immigration is too high.
