"Are Americans aware of the cost of illegals in this country?"
Original Opinion by fudd (13)
http://www.immigrationshumancost.org/ cost of illegals
Since the majority of people in this country would like to see our borders secured and the elected crime family in Washington does not see it that way and not longer CARES what the people want, what can we do about this?
"Think about the economy..." by Vultren (259)
All those illegals are using our social services and aren't paying back in taxes. It's not fair for the Americans who do pay for the things they take advantage of.
It's too bad the Democrats want their votes...
"Economy." by hopalongcassidy (7)
Illegals impact budgets from county, to city
to Staten levels,Everytime I deal with an
arrest of a signal 2 case involving an Illegal
the cost of doing business jumps by 75%.
You need interprators, You need ICE involved.
You need Asst. US attorneys office involved.
Normally one or two consulate visits, Then
you have the normal factors, Legal aid, or PD
office. The list can become damn near endless,
We need to find a better mouse trap for dealing
with these types of cases.
"Consider the following" by Akulakhan (8)
The income recieved by immigrants is spent back into the economy. Their low wages and heavy hours are the perfect exploit for many small buisness owners. The immigrants just want a better life. They will, and do, work hard for it. They deserve all they work for, even more if you ask me.
In every state besides Oregon, all sales have a tax within their cost. Thusly are taxes taken from the wages of the illegals in question.
A final consideration: if you lived in Mexico, would you illegally immigrate to the 'grand old U.S.' in pursuit of a better life?
"consider this" by ronc994 (13)
The key word is "ILLEGAL". Of course immigrants from Mexico or any other country want to live in the US or Canada, but they need to do it LEGALLY!
As for spending money, they do not spend that much. They send most of their money back to their families.
They come here looking for Utopia, and many times find the life of crime is the best way to make a lot of money fast.
They are needed for farm work,etc, great, but do it legally!
"Illegals dont get social security..." by Gaelin (212)
"All those illegals are using our social services and aren't paying back in taxes. It's not fair for the Americans who do pay for the things they take advantage of.
It's too bad the Democrats want their votes..."
illegals, like all others, pay income taxes. however they cannot collect social security or retirement benefits. They are putting money into the system and getting none out. your argument is flawed.
"source" by DashingAmerican (7)
I'd like to see the source on illegal aliens paying income taxes..one way or the other.
I'm leaning towards the idea that they don't considering they are here illegally and aren't on the records and businesses that hire them can't exactly have them on records, otherwise they get fined, massively.
"I apologize" by Gaelin (212)
i meant sales tax, that is correct illegals only rarely pay income taxes.
