Immigration Perspectives

Immigration Perspectives


  • The current estimated net cost of illegal immigrants ( excluding Border protection which is part of National Security is ~ $10.4 B per year
  • If S.744 becomes law it will balloon to $28.8 B per year
  • The approximate cost of Border Protection is $9 B per year.. we could pay all of it
  • Greta put forth a one page Immigration bill. Here is my one sentence Bill
    • Since Illegals are largely Citizens of Mexico, we should honor their heritage by applying their Home Country Immigration to them…..
    •  scan below for just summary Headings from that Law
    • If you need details scan down and read……….
    • Any comments?



  • we will feed, clothe, educate, house, and provide benefits of every kind for them. This is an unlawful invasion by a foreign country.
  • What if ALL (most)of those $$$ went to enforcing existing law. Including Border Protection? As reported below that is more than $25 B per year.
  • The cost of Border Protection = ~ $9B per Year
    • The price tag, until now, has not been public. But AP, using White House budgets, reports obtained through Freedom of Information Act requests and congressional transcripts, tallied it all up: $90 billion in 10 years.

    • From The High Cost of Cheap Labor , Stephen Camerota – 2004
      • If the estimated net fiscal drain of $2,736 a year that each illegal household imposes on the federal treasury is multiplied by the nearly three million illegal households, the total cost comes to $10.4 billion a year. (before any amnesty/legalization)
      • Both simulations show that legalization would increase the net fiscal costs dramatically. Simulation 1 shows that the net fiscal costs to the federal government would increase from $2,736 to $6,022 per household. Simulation 2 shows the net fiscal cost would be even larger, increasing to $7,668 per household.
      • If illegals were given green cards and began to pay taxes and use services like legal immigrants with the same education levels, the net annual fiscal deficit at the federal level would likely increase from $2,736 to $7,668 per household under the most likely scenario. Total costs could grow from $10.4 billion a year to $28.8 billion.
      • Mexican Immigration Law
        •  Mexico welcomes only foreigners who will be useful to Mexican society:
        • Mexican authorities must keep track of every single person in the country:
        • Foreigners with fake papers, or who enter the country under false pretenses, may be imprisoned:
        • Foreigners who fail to obey the rules will be fined, deported, and/or imprisoned as felons:
        • Under Mexican law, illegal immigration is a felony.
        • Mexicans who help illegal aliens enter the country are themselves considered criminals under the law:
        • The Mexican constitution expressly forbids non-citizens to participate in the country’s political life.
        • The Mexican constitution denies fundamental property rights to foreigners.
        • The Mexican constitution denies equal employment rights to immigrants, even legal ones, in the public sector.
        • The Mexican constitution guarantees that immigrants will never be treated as real Mexican citizens, even if they are legally naturalized.
        • An immigrant who becomes a naturalized Mexican citizen can be stripped of his Mexican citizenship if he lives again in the country of his origin for more than five years
        • Foreign-born, naturalized Mexican citizens may not become federal lawmakers (Article 55), cabinet secretaries (Article 91) or supreme court justices (Article 95).
        • The president of Mexico must be a Mexican citizen by birth AND his parents must also be Mexican-born citizens (Article 82), thus giving secondary status to Mexican-born citizens born of immigrants.
        • The Mexican constitution singles out “undesirable aliens.
        • The Mexican constitution provides the right of private individuals to make citizen’s arrests.
        • The Mexican constitution states that foreigners may be expelled for any reason and without due process.
