Michigan Taxpayers Spend $928.677.050 Per Year On Illegal Aliens
A report by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Study found 20 percent of fatal accidents involve at least one driver who lacks a valid license. In California, another study showed that those who have never held a valid license are about five times more likely to be involved in a fatal road accident than licensed drivers. These numbers dwarf the the numbers of Americans killed by Al-Qaeda and look at what we have spent on the “war on terror”, why is the Obama administration so hell bent on releasing these real terrorist on the American people. We should bring the troops home deploy them along our border, use the freed up CBP to sweep cities polluted with illegal aliens and stop allowing them access to health care, education and other social welfare programs. Companies who knowingly employ them should be heavily fined and illegals should have there assets seized to repay taxpayer then deported.
Michigan Taxpayers Spend $928,677,050 Per Year on Illegal Aliens
(CNSNews.com) – Michigan is spending nearly $1 billion a year on illegal immigrants, according to state lawmaker Dave Agema, which amounts to about $8,075 for each taxpayer in that state.
Michigan Rep. Agema, who represents the 74th district, Grandville, wrote a letter to the editor of Michigan Live explaining that the added costs of providing health care, education, welfare, jails, and human services for illegal immigrants is nearly $1 billion per year.
Agema cited the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) 2010 study, “The Fiscal Burden of Illegal Immigration on U.S. Taxpayers,” which found that an estimated 115,000 illegal aliens cost the state and local governments of Michigan $928,677,050.
The study uses estimates for illegal immigrant populations against government data on expenditures for various programs, state by state. Nationwide, the impact of illegal immigration costs $113 billion, in combined federal and state spending, according to FAIR.
In Michigan, FAIR found that K-12 education takes the largest share for spending on illegal immigrants, with $314.1 million. Other spending (state and local) includes: General ($225.3 million); Welfare ($142.6 million); Justice ($66 million); Limited English Proficiency (LEP) education ($63.2 million); Medicaid ($62.4 million); and SCHIP ($25.2 million).
“I have witnessed through my business experience as a consultant for a tool and die business the effect illegal immigration has on the cost of doing business at a state level,” Agema writes to describe his position on illegal immigration on his website.
“This burden reduces profitability, lowers pay, and decreases benefits for existing employees who are either American citizens or documented workers,” he said.
According to FAIR’s estimates, the cost for each illegal immigrant to the Michigan taxpayer amounts to $8,075.
