Halting Invasion Will Pay for Trump’s Wall 4x Over Every Year
The Third World invasion costs American taxpayers at least $113 billion every year, a figure which will pay for the expected $20 to $25 billion cost of building a wall along the U.S.–Mexican border four times over every year—a fact which leftist hysteria over the proposal completely ignores.
According to a 2013 report by the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), the annual cost of illegal immigration amounts to $29 billion at the federal level alone every year—a figure which by itself would cover the cost of building a new wall along the entire border every year.
At state and local level, the cost of illegal immigration is $84 billion per year, the FAIR report revealed.
The study also estimated tax collections from illegal alien workers, both those in the above-ground economy and those in the underground economy. Those receipts do not come close to the level of expenditures and, in any case, are misleading as an offset because over time unemployed and underemployed U.S. workers would replace illegal alien workers.
Furthermore, the FAIR report said, the annual outlay that illegal aliens cost U.S. taxpayers is an average amount per native-headed household of $1,117.
