This report examines the likely consequences if an amnesty for the illegal alien population found passage, similar to the one adopted in 1986.  A new amnesty passed has a projection of 2.5 Trillion dollars today. This is also based on only 13 million foreign nationals squatting here. The full report is available in pdf format. http://www.fairus.org/site/DocServer/USCostStudy_2010.pdf?docID=4921

IF-these far out deductions are supposedly true, that illegal aliens living in America benefit the United State economically? Then you should read the in depth meticulous analysis by (FAIR) Federation of American Immigration Reform. Simply stated in annual terms, the Federal government spends. Education Subtotal $2,107,800,000; Medical Subtotal $5,949,900,000; Law Enforcement Subtotal $7,838,700,000; General expenditures (Welfare) $8,184,400,000;
FEDERAL TOTAL $28B, 645,400,000.
STATE AND LOCAL TOTAL FOR ALL STATES: $83B, 851.000.000
                                      GRAND TOTAL; 113B, 250. 000.000

RECEIPTS FROM ILLEGAL ALIENS
Both Federal and State local government revenues $13B, 235.000.000


The American people should start calling Washington and their House and Senate at Capitol Switchboard at 202-224-3121. The Lawmakers need to hear from you, how angry and frustrated you are regarding the illegal immigration occupation. In addition read more about this financial numbing issue that threatens to rot our country from within at NumbersUSA, Judicial Watch. This is about illegal immigration, not legal immigration. Any Amnesty, immigration reform, will raise the discretionary Spending, the debt ceiling even more, sending us into deeper insolvency. Illegal immigration is not about Blacks, White, Hispanics or any racial gender,  people from Europe, Central America as every Citizen, green card recipient will severely suffer in any new volume mega amnesty is established. It will wreak havoc in mainstream jobs; allow access of new immigrants to Social Security, even though they never paid into the system. Then the ultimate insult millions more arriving here under CHAIN MIGRATION LAWS can also apply for welfare benefits, when their sponsor doesn’t honor his support petition when first arriving.

It’s true that we should welcome the top brains and higher technically educated in this country, the professional on the career ladder who are venerated by their country of origin.  Instead we are allowing the poor of other countries to enter that require social programs, or are involved in criminal activities. We certainly don’t need foreigners who have limited skills, because hundreds of thousands of Americans have those abilities. Economic Illegal aliens have severely damaged this nation’s ability to look after its own impoverished, the sick and seniors. For the open border advocacy organization and pro-immigration politicians, it’s a massive money grabbing enterprise of businesses that adamantly hire foreign nationals as there is no obligation to them, other than lower wages.


They are a chief reason companies are fighting to derail E-Verify, so they can keep on collecting all the large profits. House Judiciary Chairman Lamar Smith’s (R-Texas) has sponsored E-Verify bill, The Legal Workforce Act (H.R.2164) is being compromised by negative assessment, that thousands of legitimate Americans are being rejected by the electronic verification system. But what they don’t stipulate that these people have a right to verify their immigration status in any Social Security office. Even so, the application does have a 99.98 success rate, with extra innovation being added including nationwide drivers license ID recognition software.

Illegal immigration is a spreading plague, which will be a major issue in the 2012 elections, Americans committed to honest voting rules, must be especially vigilant that Democrats and the Liberal agenda have been caught time and time again, attributing to non-citizens voting. Non-citizen voting is likely growing at the same speed as the migrant and immigration population in the America; but because of deficiency in state law and the failure of federal agencies to comply with federal law, there are almost no measures in place that permit election officials to identify, deter, and thwart non-citizens from registering and voting. Instead, officials are largely reliant on an “honor sys­tem” that expects non-citizens to follow the law. Yet in the debates over what to do about the 13 million foreign nationals estimated (Not the true figure) to be in the United States, there has been practically no committees of how to ensure that they do not register and vote in federal elections.

Sorry, we missed your input...

User Guidelines

Please be respectful and relevant. Thought-provoking. Or at least funny.

We want comments to advance the discussion and we need your help. Debate, disagree, yell (digitally) or laugh, but do it with respect.

We won't censor your comments if we don't agree with you; we want viewpoints from across the political spectrum. We're dedicated to sparking an open, active discussion. We believe people with differing opinions can spark debate and effect change.

Comments are open to registered users of TucsonSentinel.com.

Keep in mind:

  • A conversation involves sharing and respect. Support your viewpoint with facts, not attacks.
  • Ask questions. Search out answers.
  • Remember that being part of a community requires tolerance for differing views.
  • We can't ensure that all comments are based in truth. The only comments we endorse are those we write ourselves.

TucsonSentinel.com does not allow:

  • Hate speech. Blatantly racist, sexist or homophobic slurs or calls for violence against a particular type of person, etc. will be removed.
  • Obscenity & excessive cursing. Sometimes a well-placed curse word - if you're creative enough to get it past our auto-censor - can express your point in just the right way. But we say '%*$& no' to cursing for cursing's sake. And lose the explicit sexually-descriptive language. It doesn't contribute to the debate and there are plenty of other places on the Internet to find it.
  • Flaming. During a heated discussion, unkind words may be spoken. We can live with a certain amount of rudeness in the name of provocative conversation, but a pattern of personal attacks (name-calling, mocking, or baiting) is not acceptable nor are threatening or harassing comments. Show some respect, please.
  • Explicit political endorsements. As a nonprofit we can't allow electioneering. Analysis and explanation of political issues and candidates are encouraged, but specific calls to vote for or against a measure or politician should be done elsewhere.
  • Spam. Solicitation of products or services isn't allowed; contact us about advertising, we'd love to talk to you. Links to off-topic sites may be deleted.
  • Copyright or IP infringement. Lengthy quotes and violations of 'Fair Use' aren't allowed. Anything you post should be your own work.
  • Overposting. Don't bore people and waste electrons with identical comments on multiple stories or repetitive comments that don't advance a conversation.
  • Trolling, sockpuppetry, and other abusive behavior. Please don't feed the trolls and don't pretend to be someone you're not.
  • Gossip. Don't bring up others who can't defend themselves. We don't give out personal information; you shouldn't either.

Comments that violate these guidelines may be removed. We reserve the right to make up the rules as we go along.

Flagging

Commentors are solely responsible for the opinions they express and the accuracy of the information they provide. Users who violate these standards may lose their privileges on TucsonSentinel.com.

Sentinel editors can't read every comment. Trolls, spammers and other troublemakers can slide under the bridge. We rely on you to help maintain a healthy conversation - more than likely, you're reading these comments before the editors.

What if you see something inappropriate? Use the 'Flag' button to send it to a moderation queue. Help us out and tell us why you're reporting it; please don't report someone just because you disagree with them. Boy who cried wolf and all that. We'll take appropriate action on violations.

We will not edit comments to alter their meaning or censor comments because of political content.

We will not remove comments solely because they are heartless, cruel, coarse, foolish or just plain wrong. Your disapproval can maintain a decent signal to noise ratio. Ultimately, however, self-policing is the best method.

Bottom line, don't be a jerk.
