"Children born to illegal-alien parents cost U.S. taxpayers $2.4 billion each year according to a new report from the Center for Immigration Studies. The report concludes that of all births in the U.S. likely paid for by taxpayers, $5.3 billion is spent each year on children born to illegal alien or immigrant parents.
Analyzing government data, CIS says that roughly 1 in every 5 child born in the United States has a foreign-born mother, accounting for 791,000 births each year. Of those, an estimated 290,000 children are born to illegal-alien parents each year. CIS estimates that 67% of illegal-alien parents are either uninsured or have access to Medicaid.
According to the Congressional Budget Office, there are 4.5 million children under the age of 18 living in the United States who were born to illegal-alien parents. Once these children become adults, they can sponsor their illegal-alien parents for green cards through the immediate family green card category. (For CBO data See:https://www.cbo.gov/system/files/115th-congress-2017-2018/costestim... )
The United States is one of only two developed nations to still grant automatic citizenship to nearly every child born in the United States, regardless of the parents' immigration status. Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) has introduced H.R. 140 that would eliminate Birthright Citizenship."

Follow the link to the CBO estimates which are based on current outlays... SNAP was included however, the numbers are only for Children of Illegal aliens... hardly all of the illegal aliens on SNAP or other government welfare... the estimates there bring total governmetn outlays to over 100 Billion a year... building a wall and deporting illegal aliens who are dependent on welfare payments would easily pay for the wall with dividens in return to the tax payers... there is no doubt the wall would more than pay for itself in the first year it goes into opertion.
100 Billion a year, Opps!!!!!!!!!! There It Is, the Party Is Over Turn Out The Lights.
I can not wait to show dad, and my friends.
Here is a valid reference to the 100 Billion per year... it is even higher by some estimates. See below:
"The Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), a conservative advocacy group that favors tighter immigration laws, argues that the answer is clear: illegal aliens cost U.S. taxpayers more than $100 billion each year. "
"At the federal, state, and local levels, taxpayers shell out approximately $134.9 billion to cover the costs incurred by the presence of more than 12.5 million illegal aliens, and about 4.2 million citizen children of illegal aliens. That amounts to a tax burden of approximately $8,075 per illegal alien family member and a total of $115,894,597,664. The total cost of illegal immigration to U.S. taxpayers is both staggering and crippling. In 2013, FAIR estimated the total cost to be approximately $113 billion. So, in under four years, the cost has risen nearly $3 billion. This is a disturbing and unsustainable trend. The sections below will break down and further explain these numbers at the federal, state, and local levels."
The President claims illegal aliens cost the taxpayer 113 Billion per year...
Mr. Nelson, I am working on a plan, soon I will show you.
