    I don't know about you all but these numbers are staggering and it could be stopped if someone in Washington gave a darn!
    We are not the keepers of the world nor do we have the money to keep this kind of payout up.
    No wonder our economy is hurting!
    All the money the illegals have taken away in jobs and to add insult to injury they are sending that kind of bank home to Mexico we need it in our economy Right Now!




    Such as how many here:

    Illegal Immigrants in Country: 21,360,240

    Number of illegal children in school: 4,262,720

    Illegal Immigrants Incarcerated: 357,461

    Illegal Immigrant Fugitives: 670,429

    Anchor Babies Since 2002: 1,903,668

    Skilled Jobs Taken by Illegal Immigrants: 10,356,435


    The following is in American MONEY....

    money wired to Mexico since Jan 2006: 23, 975, 882, 497

    wired to Latin America since 2001: 228, 792, 375, 693

    Cost of Social Services for Illegal Immigrants Since 1996: 397,445,002,988

    Cost of Illegals in K-12 Since 1996: 13,801,167,812

    MONEY WIRED TO MEXICO: Good For Mexico, Lost Revenue That America Needs:
    In 2003, an estimated 40 million remittance transactions carried money from the United States to Mexico.
    http://pewhispanic.org/files/reports/28.pdf

    Source: The Miami Herald, February 01, 2006 “Remittances reach US$20 billion in 2005.”

    “Remittances sent home by Mexicans living abroad rose to US$20 billion in 2005, a 17 percent increase over the year before, the Bank of Mexico reported on Tuesday.” The report is provided below.
    http://www.eluniversal.com.mx/miami/16816.html


    COST OF SOCIAL SERVICES FOR ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS: Job Security For Government Agencies:
    Total cost for social services including food stamps, AFDC, SSI, housing, Social Security, earned income tax credit, Medicaid, Medicare A & B, medical services in emergency rooms, increased local government services, and other programs.
    Includes costs of $4.3 billion annually due to unemployment payments made to American citizens who lost their jobs to illegal immigrants and the lost tax revenue and economic impact due to their unemployment.

    CHILLING COSTS OF ILLEGAL ALIEN MIGRATION:

    In 2003, according to the Arizona Department of Motor Vehicles, 57,600 cars were stolen in Phoenix. It is now the car-******* capital of the world.

    Who stole them? Take a guess. Arizona is the temporary home of 500,000 illegal aliens.
    They cost Arizona taxpayers over $1 billion annually in services for schools, medical care, welfare anchor babies, loss of tax base and prisons.
    Illegals use those vehicles for smuggling more people and drugs from around the world into our country.

    Illegal aliens displaced American workers at a cost in excess of $133 billion dollars last year according to Harvard Professor George Borjas.
    College and high school kids cannot find a summer job in yard care, landscape, fast food or service jobs.
    Why? Illegal aliens work them at a third the wage and often, under the table.

    Annually, 75 percent of drugs arrive from Mexico at a net cost of $120 billion hard currency that leaves our country for good. In addition, our tax dollars pay $80 billion for the War on Drugs each year.

    When an alien criminal gets caught for rape, murder or drug distribution, you pay $1.6 billion annually in prison costs to house, feed and clothe those filling 30 percent of our federal and state prisons

    The average head of household illegal alien costs you $2,700.00 in welfare money over and above any taxes he or she pays in their meager paying jobs. With 15 to 20 million illegal aliens in the USA, that figures exceeds $20 billion of your tax dollars. (Source: Center for Immigration Studies, August 2004)

    It costs $200 million to provide for emergency health care for illegal aliens in the Border States annually.

    California
    with over three million illegals paid $79 million, BUT four of their major LA hospitals bankrupted and shut their doors in 2004.

    Texas with 1.5 million illegal aliens paid $74 million in hospital care.
    Who is Texas? You, the taxpayer, that’s who!
    Because you, in your state, pay commensurate medical care according to your illegal alien population.

    Georgia ran a $63 million deficit for 64,000 unpaid doctor visits to their Grady Health Care system in 2002.
    In the same year, Georgia taxpayers paid $27 million for 11,188 anchor baby hospital births.
    Georgia taxpayers paid a whopping $242 million for educating illegal alien kids in 2003.

    What is it in your state?


    Fellow Americans, we are $7.384 trillion in debt as of November 1, 2004. This year’s budget deficit exceeds $413 billion.
    Our trade deficit stands at $400 billion. Our consumer debt exceeds $2 trillion and our average credit card carries an $8,000.00 balance.
    Our U.S. government borrows $1.6 billion daily from foreign banks, just to stay afloat.

    Who brings this fiscal nightmare into America? Take a guess. The majority of your Congress!

    Illegals are arriving at over 4,000 per night according to Time Magazine, September 12, 2004, "Who Left the Door Open?" I quote,

    Who else figures in this grand scheme?

    Your governors and mayors who provide sanctuary laws for illegal aliens!



    Mayor Bloomberg of New York City.
    Governor Baldacci of Maine!

    Governor Bill Owens of Colorado!

    Mayor Hickenlooper of Denver! Mayor of Los Angeles!

    Mayor of San Francisco!

    Mayor of Chicago! Mayor of Miami!



    How do I know? All those cities and dozens more give sanctuary to illegal aliens with Special Order 40.
    Illegals remain in our country with exemption from arrest—yet, they are federal criminals!

    Why is there so many threads on illegal immigrants?
    I heard someone on another thread use the word scapegoat.
    Maybe you should send them over here - we have a huge shortage of workers (especially in fast food and other service industries) =D

    Apparently paintedquarters feels that it is his/her personal duty to warn HGS of the dangers of illegal immigrants, in multiple threads.

    Just to let you know, illegal aliens are not the only thing hurting our economy. It's been costing billions upon billions of money to continue on with a useless war.
