The Cost to US Taxpayers for Accepting Immigrants is $135 BILLION Per Year!

The US has granted citizenship to one-million immigrants per year for decades. They bring family members into the US through ‘chain immigration’ which strains the economy and the culture in many ways. Illegal immigration is on top of that, and costs taxpayers an estimated $135 billion per year for medical care, education, welfare, and law-enforcement.

A study from the Federation for American Immigration Reform found that 11-million illegal immigrants cost taxpayers $135 billion per year for free medical care, education, and law-enforcement. While illegal alien workers do pay an estimated $19-billion per year in taxes, there is a deficit of $116 billion.

The Center for Immigration Studies says that chain immigration, which allows relatives of migrants to come to the US, has resulted in one migrant bringing in an average of 3.45 more people with him into the US. Mexican immigrants average more than 6 additional family members brought into the US. 24% are over 50 and become eligible for Social Security benefits. If DACA immigrants are granted amnesty, they are expected to bring in millions more people to the US.

Simon Rosenberg of the New Democratic Network tries to justify mass immigration by claiming that illegal immigrants, who make up 5% of the US workforce, add to the GDP by hundreds of billions of dollars. Tucker argues that GDP is not the same as wealth because there is no consideration for the cost.

There are almost 100 million Americans who are not working that could fill the jobs by illegal immigrants. The opioid epidemic in America is linked to the unemployment. Immigrants send billions in earnings back to Mexico, which is the second largest cash flow to that country.

Rosenberg agreed that when the US allows one million low wage workers to immigrate into the US per year, they lower the wages in America.

The Left supports immigration because 80% of the immigrants vote Democrat.

Did George Floyd Die from Asphyxiation or Drug Overdose?

The official county autopsy mentioned that Floyd had a concentration of the drug Fentanyl at three times the lethal level. We hesitated to publish this fact and risk being accused of trying to cover up police brutality, which certainly is not the case. We have a long record of reporting on cases of police brutality when warranted.

Why Social Distancing Is Harmful to Children

July 3, 2020 Leigh Dundas 1

The COVID-19 fatality rate for children is so low that the CDC calculates it at 0.0% for anyone under 19 years of age. Isolation creates depression, lack of sleep, poor cardiovascular function, cognitive decline, and impaired immunity. This is a must-watch.

Again, there seems to be a major difference between the way the Immigration Law is written and the way Obama enforced it. Eleven million illegal immigrants should be deported and the practice of allowing relatives of illegals and “anchor babies” should be totally eliminated. Illegals are costing $135 billion annually and Congress doesn’t even consider cutting the spending. Congress is fiscally incompetent and the Country is bankrupt with $20 trillion in debt. Indict Obama and members of Congress for violating Immigration Laws. “It’s the spending, stupid”. Drain the Swamp.

Please add the false Muslim Refugees to the list of costly immigrants and those Muslims that have sneaked over the border and have remained after the expiration of their visa’s.

And why is one dime of taxpayer money – collected at gunpoint when you get right down to it – spent on immigrants?
Why don’t they pay their own way?
