American Taxpayers Getting Reamed by Illegal Alien Households

A mind-numbing 63 percent of illegal alien migrants tap into American taxpayer dollars as to K -12 schooling, breakfasts and lunches, food, utilities, housing and medical care.

Not only do they violate our borders and break our laws every single day of their existence in our country—our U.S. Congress, your senator and House member—make you pay for them.

At this point, the Yale Illegal Immigration Study showed that 22 to 25 million illegal aliens now call America their home.  The report, by Dr. Steven Camarota of www.CIS.org , showed that 4.6 million illegal alien households utilize U.S. tax dollars to house, feed, educate and clothe their families.

If you take the simplest number of two children, wife and husband into account for 4.6 million illegal households, that’s a whopping 18,400,000 (million) illegal aliens living off your tax dollars. Worse, your U.S. Congress allows, promotes it and funds it.  Your two U.S. Senators and House member do absolutely nothing to stop it.

In cold black terms, you, the American taxpayer are getting reamed by your own government and elected representatives.

Not only does Congress refuse to build a wall, but it refuses to stop anchor babies, visa overstays and an average of 1,500 illegal from jumping over our borders 24/7.

You pay for those illegals in higher taxes and national debt.  You pay for it in unemployment checks for our own citizens. You pay higher prices for everything from shoplifted goods by illegals to insurance rates because they can’t or won’t buy insurance to paying for all their doctor bills. It’s mind-numbing what you pay for as to illegal aliens.

Among the findings:

  • In 2014, 63 percent of households headed by a non-citizen reported that they used at least one welfare program, compared to 35 percent of native-headed households.
  • Welfare use drops to 58 percent for non-citizen households and 30 percent for native households if cash payments from the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) are not counted as welfare. EITC recipients pay no federal income tax. Like other welfare, the EITC is a means-tested, anti-poverty program, but unlike other programs one has to work to receive it.
  • Compared to native households, non-citizen households have much higher use of food programs (45 percent vs. 21 percent for natives) and Medicaid (50 percent vs. 23 percent for natives).
  • Including the EITC, 31 percent of non-citizen-headed households receive cash welfare, compared to 19 percent of native households. If the EITC is not included, then cash receipt by non-citizen households is slightly lower than natives (6 percent vs. 8 percent).

Today, 44 million Americans and non-Americans subsist on food stamps paid for by your daily labors.  Every time an illegal arrives in this country, eventually, you start paying for his or her babies, their education, their clothing, their food, their housing, their utilities and their medical care.

Programs Examined. The major welfare programs examined in this report are Supplemental Security Income (SSI), Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF), the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), the Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) food program, free or subsidized school lunch and breakfast, food stamps (officially called the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program or SNAP), Medicaid, public housing, and rent subsidies.

In a few words, you and your family are getting ripped off and trampled by illegal aliens.

The Cost of Illegal Immigration to the United States

At the federal, state, and local levels, taxpayers shell out approximately $134.9 billion to cover the costs incurred by the presence of more than 12.5 million illegal aliens, and about 4.2 million citizen children of illegal aliens. That amounts to a tax burden of approximately $8,075 per illegal alien family member and a total of $115,894,597,664. The total cost of illegal immigration to U.S. taxpayers is both staggering and crippling. In 2013, FAIR estimated the total cost to be approximately $113 billion. So, in under four years, the cost has risen nearly $3 billion. This is a disturbing and unsustainable trend. The sections below will break down and further explain these numbers at the federal, state, and local levels.

May I mention that those figures above by the Federation for American Immigration Reform stand for 12.5 million illegals and not the latest figure of 22 to 25 million.  Essentially, you may tabulate that their figures are doubled by the Yale Study of 22 to 25 million illegals.

Guess what? It’s only going to get worse because you will not see any change when Democrats take over the House in 2020.  You are electing them and paying them to push for open borders.  Their leaders like Bernie Sanders, Nancy Pelosi, Diane Feinstein, Charles Schumer and governors like De Blasio, Jerry Brown and John Hickenlooper all support open borders and sanctuary cities.

We, the American people, will pay and pay, and keep paying because Congress will do nothing to stop illegal immigration into America.  Why? Because the American people keep electing the same career corrupt politicians who answer to their big corporate interests for endless 21stcentury slave labor.

Read it and weep!  Then, what’s in your wallet?
