    Granted I am new to this message board...but these numbers are staggering..even if the number of Illegals is a bit too high...

    So often, we get caught up in a debate over political semantics and end
    up ignoring the hard-shell realities of what we're talking about.
    According to, here are some of the realities:

    Number of Illegal Aliens in the Country


    Money Wired to Mexico City since January, 2006


    Cost of Social Security Services for Illegal Aliens since 1996


    Number of Children of Illegal Aliens in Public Schools


    Cost of Illegal Aliens in K-12 Since 1996:

    $13, 965,063,431.00

    Number of Illegal Aliens Incarcerated


    Cost of Incarcerations Since 2001


    Number of Illegal Aliens Fugitives


    Skilled Jobs Taken by Illegal Aliens


    Figures can trick your eyes. Take particular note that items 2,3,5, and
    7 reflect BILLION not millions of dollars -- and that item 3 exceeds
    one-third of a TRILLION dollars.

    Can you imagine how much it will cost taxpayers if we triple the number
    of Illegals entering this country!!


    So, What's in a Billion?.......

    Granted................ this is from the US!

    The next time you hear a politician use the word "billion" in a casual
    manner, think about whether you want the "politicians" spending your tax

    A billion is a difficult number to comprehend, but one advertising
    agency did a good job of putting th at figure into some perspective in
    one of its releases.

    A. A billion seconds ago it was 1959.

    B. A billion minutes ago Jesus was alive.

    C. A billion hours ago our ancestors were living in the Stone Age.

    D. A billion days ago no-one walked on the earth on two feet.

    E. A billion dollars ago was only 8 hours and 20 minutes, at the rate
    our government is spending it.

    While this thought is still fresh in our brain, let's take a look at New
    Orleans. It's amazing what you can learn with some simple division . .

    Louisiana Senator, Mary Landrieu (D), is presently asking the Congress
    for $250 BILLION to rebuild New Orleans . Interesting number, what does
    it mean?

    a. Well, if you are one of 484,674 residents of New Orleans (every man,
    woman, child), you each get $516,528.

    b. Or, if you have one of the 188,251 homes in New Orleans, your home
    gets $1,329,787.

    c. Or, if you are a family of four, your family gets $2,066,012.

    Washington D.C. ... HELLO!!! ... Are all your calculators

    This is too true.........And these numbers are HUGE..and so is the effect it will have on our future and the future of our kids....
