Taxpaying Americans have been stomped on by the politicians and liberal geniuses who’ve decided that its our job to care for anyone and everyone (those wanting free sex change operations, those wanting free healthcare, those wanting to come here illegally, those wanting abortions, etc.) who claims entitlement. There is such a thing as charity, but there is also such a thing as our veterans dying for lack of good quality care – while we give billions to Iran, free healthcare and housing to people who are here illegally, and fund the nation’s largest abortion provider. Enough is enough!
A study published by the Center for Immigration Studies says that the savings to American taxpayers in preventing the flood of illegal immigrants would far outweigh the cost of the border wall. Build that wall!
The New American reports – On paper, the study entitled “The Cost of a Border Wall vs. the Cost of Illegal Immigration,” published by the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS), seems to make sense:
If a [southern] border wall stopped a small fraction of the illegal immigrants who are expected to come in the next decade, the fiscal savings from having fewer illegal immigrants in the country would be sufficient to cover the costs of the wall.
There are many assumptions built into Camarota’s analysis, but the big one not mentioned is this: Although those alleged savings would reduce the tax burden on citizens living close to the border, why should they (once relieved of some part of that burden) be forced to turn around and use those savings to pay for the wall?
Camarota’s analysis, however, is useful in many ways, including learning just how much illegal immigration is costing American taxpayers every year. He uses calculations from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine to determine that each illegal border crosser creates “an average financial burden [on American taxpayers] of approximately $74,722 during their lifetimes, excluding any costs for their U.S.-born children. If a border wall stopped between 160,000 and 200,000 illegal crossers (9 to 12 percent of those expected to successfully cross in the next decade), the fiscal savings would equal the $12 to $15 billion cost of the wall.” (Note: Because of the method by which the financial burden is figured, the lifetime fiscal cost of each illegal is likely much higher, as CIS stated.)
