    Granted I am new to this message board but this is amazing...and these numbers are MASSIVE! even if the # 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 mmigrationCounters.com, here are some of the realities:
    Number of Illegal Aliens in the Country

    20,807,645

    Money Wired to Mexico City since January, 2006

    $22,213,001,672.00

    Cost of Social Security Services for Illegal Aliens since 1996

    $397,450,739,563.00

    Number of Children of Illegal Aliens in Public Schools

    3,958,789

    Cost of Illegal Aliens in K-12 Since 1996:

    $13, 965,063,431.00

    Number of Illegal Aliens Incarcerated

    332,594

    Cost of Incarcerations Since 2001

    $1,398,127,42900

    Number of Illegal Aliens Fugitives

    642,799

    Skilled Jobs Taken by Illegal Aliens

    9,872,838



    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
    money.

    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, < /SPAN>D.C. ... HELLO!!! ... Are all your calculators
    broken??

    This is too true.........And these numbers are huge...and so is the effect it has on our future as a country and the futures of our kids...
