We want OUR JOBS and FREEDOM back—all FOREIGN INVADERS must be REMOVED!!!!!
This quotation by a fellow Patriot on FaceBook gives you an idea of the lack of patience many Americans have with the Administration regarding their poor handling (to say the least) of immigration and illegal alien issues. This also helps explain buoyed support for people like Sheriff Joe Arpaio and Arizona Governor Jan Brewer, who work indefatigably to keep their state safe by enforcing its laws…
On December 3, Department of Homeland Security Assistant Secretary for Legislative Affairs, Nelson Peacock, responding to request from several U.S. Senators, including Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX), wrote: “Our conservative estimate suggests that ICE would require a budget of more than $135 billion to apprehend, detain and remove the nation’s entire illegal immigrant population.”
In July 2010, the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) released the results of a study which examined the costs of illegal immigration at the federal, state and local levels. The study found that U.S. state and local governments shell out $84.2 billion annually in various services (law enforcement, schools, social services, etc.), with California taxpayers alone, spending $21 billion on illegal aliens every year.
The same study found that $29 billion is spent every year in federal funds on illegal aliens.
So, while it would cost a one-time fee of about $135 billion to deport every single illegal alien in the country, it is actually a bargain considering the fact that it already costs us $113 billion annually to keep them here.
In other words, the mass deportation would pay for itself in a little over a year.
Incidentally, in 2007, the DHS estimated the cost of deporting all illegal aliens to be approximately $94 billion.
Editor’s note: Considering the date of this article and the relevance of Arizona’s predicament, please read the following article as it clearly spells out Obama’s circuitous run around Congress, his nonchalance for the SCOTUS, and his disdain for the Constitution.
These actions are complete usurpations of power in the mode of an imperial dictatorship. Obama is disregarding the law of the land in an effort to garner political favor in the Hispanic community by forcibly implementing his DREAM Act provisions which, by the way, were voted down by Congress!
