Mass immigration costs govt. $296 billion a year, depresses wages: National Academy of Sciences

Image result for no more refugees or illegal aliensImmigration is a massive drain on the government, with immigrants taking as much as $296 billion more in benefits than they pay in taxes, according to a new authoritative study by the National Academies of Science, Engineering and Medicine, which found the record level of newcomers is straining the country.

The report suggests that migrants depress wages for Americans, at least in the beginning, and particularly hit workers who have to compete for jobs.

And the new arrivals aren’t assimilating as well as past waves of immigrants, struggling to learn English and to raise their wages as quickly as previous migrants, the academy said in a final draft of the report, which The Washington Times obtained.

The reasons for the slowdown in assimilation aren’t clear, but one possibility — particularly when it comes to difficulties learning English — is the heavy presence of Mexican immigrants during the previous two decades, the academy said.

The report, due to be released Thursday afternoon, challenges many of the assumptions concerning how well the U.S. can handle the current levels of immigration, which run about 1 million a year, including both legal and illegal arrivals.

Defenders of immigration, including the White House, argue that legalizing illegal immigrants and increasing legal immigration will earn billions of dollars in new revenue.

But it will cost far more "MILLIONS" of dollars to support those who do not work.  

I think the title to this article is worded wrong, it should read "Cost the Taxpayers 296 million", as in itself, the Govt. has no money, they use our money.    The money, hard working Stiffs who are by Law, are commanded to pay every year, in the form of Income Tax.   That's just one, as every single thing you touch, is taxed in one way or another.    I am very proud of our Governor Gregg Abbott, announcing yesterday, that Texas, will no longer be a part of the "Re-Settlement Program".     I think added to that, all mosques should be monitored, and these people should be kept under surveillance, at all times.    Why import poverty, ignorance and vicious people, whose long term aim to overcome us, and conquer the world.     Has America become the Garbage Disposal for the most obscene, filthy garbage  in the world? 

Come one, come all, to the welcoming bosom of America. FREE LAND, FREE MEDICAL CARE, FREE FOOD AND DRINK, A FREE SHELTER OVER YOUR HEAD AND GUARANTEED SAFETY AND CULTURAL PROTECTIONS COURTESY OF KING BARACK OBAMA AND ............... wait for it ..........
A ROLL OF $100 BILLS FOR EACH POCKET.

The American middle class wants you, welcomes you, prays to Allah for your safe passage and will gladly give you their fine homes and cars; so they might live on the streets in cardboard boxes, that they might empathize with you and your past lives in squalor. COME HITHER AND MULTIPLY! BTW, just keep the houses and cars; since under your care they will be worthless slums and abandoned vehicles in a matter of months ... ENJOY!

This just verifies the fact that BO with his Mus-slim friends at the United Nations want to cripple the U.S. so we have to join the "One World Govt.!" Does any of this "Crap" make sense to anyone? First, they need your guns so you are DEFENSELESS!! 

our government does not care how much it cost for immigration as long as more democrat voters come into this country and become government dependent.

What about the cost of all the crimes committed by ILLEGALS?

What about the cost to victims and their families who suffer murder, rape, and other violent crimes by ILLEGALS?

What about the cost to our culture of having tens of millions of American hating ILLEGALS here?

The only way to stop this it to:

  1. Hold all politicians, judges, and lawyers PERSONALLY liable for ALL crimes committed by ALL illegals just as they force bartenders to be personally liable for intentionally serving drunk patrons, and
  2. Call out the politicians, judges, and lawyers for what they are which is TRAITORS, then execute them all BY LAW!
  3. Deport ALL illegals without exception!
  4. End the insanity of "anchor babies".
  5. Did I mention execute the traitors who intentionally violate the law by inviting those ILLEGALS here?

Venting makes us feel better because we have enlightened others about our feelings.  However, it mostly doesn't lead to solutions.  . 

Now  lets address your concerns one at a time;  #1. where are you going to get your funding to accomplish this? Where are you going to file your complaints since many judges will be  defending themselves from complaints.  #2 I note a contradiction between your #1 and this #2.  How can they be executed BY LAW if they have not been tried in a court of law or are we going to establish kangaroo courts?   Who is going to print your call-out or carry your message?   #3 Who will issue the order to deport all illegals and who will carry that order out?  Yes, Eisenhower deported many illegals during his presidency but who will carry that order now. #4 To accomplish this demand, one would have to Amend the Constitution to void parts of the 14th Amendment .  #5 repeat  #2. 

What some fail to realize is that Big Business in conjunction with Progressive Communists or democrats for short, want illegals here because of lower wages and a higher profit margin. The Communists want them here for the votes.  Big Business has bought off our Congress, our President and the Press.  The Communists have bought off our elections with the Welfare State and voter fraud.  So how do we achieve your battle plan, who is on our side, who will risk prison or death to achieve it? And who will fund an overthrow of the government as you suggest?

JUST IN->  Pelosi Announces House Resolution To Condemn Trump’s ‘Racist, Xenophobic Tweets’

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announced Monday that Democrats will offer a resolution condemning President Donald Trump’s “racist” tweets against Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN).

Pelosi wrote a letter to House Democrats announcing that they will draft a resolution to condemn Trump’s “racist” tweets against progressive Democrats.

“This weekend, the President went beyond his own low standards using disgraceful language about Members of Congress,” Speaker Nancy Pelosi wrote.

“This morning, the President doubled down on his attacks on our four colleagues suggesting they apologize to him,” she added. “Let me be clear, our Caucus will continue to forcefully respond to these disgusting attacks.”

President Trump taunted the “squad” of far-left first-term progressive Democrats on Sunday, telling them to go back and fix the places they came from before telling the rest of the country what to do.

Trump’s tweets caused an uproar amongst the media and Hollywood celebrity classes, and now, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D–TX) hopes to capitalize on the president’s message by condemning them in Congress.

Lee said she will draft a resolution of condemnation.

“Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee will be drafting a Resolution of Condemnation for the words used by President Trump about four members of the House of Representatives over the weekend,” Jackson Lee’s office wrote:

So interesting to see “Progressive” Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly......

Donald J. Trump  @realDonaldTrump

....it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!

President Trump’s remarks seemed particularly directed at Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), who is a former Somalian refugee.

Omar said Friday that the president “shouldn’t be in office” and told an audience of high school students that America was failing to uphold its promise to be a just society.

Rep. Omar said Trump was “stoking white nationalism” after he tweeted that some progressive congresswomen should “go back” to where they came from.

“You are stoking white nationalism because you are angry that people like us are serving in Congress and fighting against your hate-filled agenda,” Omar wrote:

Ilhan Omar  @IlhanMN


As Members of Congress, the only country we swear an oath to is the United States.

Which is why we are fighting to protect it from the worst, most corrupt and inept president we have ever seen. https://twitter.com/realdonaldtrump/status/1150381394234941448

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez claimed Monday that President Trump’s remarks serve as the “hallmark language of white supremacists.”

President Trump tweeted Monday that Democrats need to apologize for the “foul language” and “terrible things they have said”:

Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump

When will the Radical Left Congresswomen apologize to our Country, the people of Israel and even to the Office of the President, for the foul language they have used, and the terrible things they have said. So many people are angry at them & their horrible & disgusting actions!

Donald J. Trump  @realDonaldTrump

If Democrats want to unite around the foul language & racist hatred spewed from the mouths and actions of these very unpopular & unrepresentative Congresswomen, it will be interesting to see how it plays out. I can tell you that they have made Israel feel abandoned by the U.S.
