    “With the $550 million for public safety and nearly $500 million for healthcare, the total cost for illegal immigrants to County taxpayers exceeds $1.6 billion dollars a year (JUST one County!). These costs do not include the hundreds of millions of dollars for education. The continuously rising amounts explain why not only L.A. County, but the entire state of California is now in financial ruin.

    In 2003, the American Southwest saw 77 hospitals enter bankruptcy due to unpaid medical bills incurred by illegal aliens."

    Most illegal aliens work under the table or work for themselves and don't pay Federal or State income taxes.

    We pick up the tab for the millions of anchor babies born each year. And illegals are filing taxes, using the ITIN number and getting huge refunds ($10,000 +) I am guessing they get the state refunds as well. Many work, like you said under the table, so they have an income on top of the aid they receive. What bugs me is that the people who owe for medical care don't even attempt to make a payment. Imagine if the millions who walked out without paying their bill would each send a measley $5.00 or $10.00 a month to pay on their bills. The hospitals might be able to stay in business. It's common now to see hospitals in areas heavily populated by illegals to file bankruptcy. That hurts everyone.

    I don't get why the libs are more concerned with asking for more entitlements when we are being sucked dry as it is.

    Mr Fucktard Sir:

    1- Before LBJ created the welfare state in 1965 we had open borders with Mexico and there was never a problem. Mexicans could go back and forth at their convenience

    2- The USA declared bankruptcy in 1935 - back then there were NO MEXICANS OR HISPANICS in a position of power at the national or state level

    SHUT THE FUCK UP AND GIT

    Daily Kos: Kicking out immigrants isn't working well for Alabama
    ^In Georgia fruit and vegetable farmers (who make up just 5% of Georgia’s total crop value have lost 75 million dollars in unpicked crops because they couldn’t get enough labour to pick them after the state enacted an anti-immigration law that caused immigrants to flee; farmers say the lacked 40% of the work force they needed.
    ^Extrapolating the data Georgia lost 1.5 billion in un-harvested crops.

    SB-1070 Mass Deportation Policy Could Shrink Arizona Economy By $48.8 Billion | ThinkProgress
    ^The Arizona immigration bill is estimated to:
    Reduce state tax revenue by 10.1%
    Eliminate 581,000 jobs
    Shrink the economy by 48.8 billion

    Reason Foundation - Illegal Immigrants are Paying a Lot More Taxes Than You Think
    Illegal immigrants contribute a net 80,000 dollars in taxes over their lifetime. Meaning the 12 million illegal immigrants currently in America will contribute 1 trillion more dollars in taxes than they receive in benefits. Illegal immigrants still pay all state/local taxes (including sales and property) while paying some income taxes (some are paid under the table). Since illegal immigrants enter the country during their working years they do not cost the government in education costs. Also sine illegal immigrants are legally unable to get SS, Medicare or other social benefits they do not cost the government any money in those matters.



    Study predicts $1.5 trillion increase in GDP if undocumented immigrants are legalized. | ThinkProgress
    ^Legalizing immigrants would add 1.5 trillion to GDP in ten years due to higher wages and spending. It would also create 1 million jobs. Deporting illegal immigrants would reduce GDP by 2.6 trillion over ten years (not including the cost of deportation).

    You have a big mouth for a little girl. Did somebody take your dolls away? Losers like you are cowards. You would never talk to anybody like that in person because you would be picking up your teeth. Now go away loser.

    So, If you want to keep the open borders, then let's get rid of the welfare state. That should solve the problem shouldn't it?

    Yep illegals sure do boost Mexico's economy. Money they send home is probably the largest source of ourside income for Mexico.

    That has been part of the Libertarian Party Platform since its creation in 1971.

    But now you have Obama and Obama Light running for Prez. So the welfare state will remain untouched.
