Let's not make our Illegal Immigration Problems any worse

Illegal immigrants are already a burden, on the poor, as well as, U.S. taxpayers;

Illegal immigrants, given citizenship, will create an even greater burden, on the poor, as well as, U.S. taxpayers.

Less than 4%, of all the illegal immigrants in our United States, are working in agriculture.

ON-THE-BOOKS, EIGHT MILLION ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS are working in, non-agriculture, American jobs, by using false, or stolen SS numbers. Using SS mismatches, DHS knows where these illegal immigrants are working. http://bit.ly/15q9Axg

OFF-THE-BOOKS, there's a rapidly expanding $2+ Trillion Underground Economy in the U.S,, which has doubled in the last four years, driven by the continued inflow of illegal immigrants, and more U.S. employers contracting work out to them http://bit.ly/H0uAQi

Immigration Reform does absolutely nothing to address the issue of the Underground Economy. It is doubtful that many of the illegal immigrants working in the underground economy would opt for citizenship. The illegal immigrants will still be here working off-the-books, and as long as there are jobs are available, more illegal immigrants will come ... 1/8th of our economy is OFF-THE-BOOKs, tax-free, under the table. An estimated $500 billion in tax revenue is currently lost due to the underground economy. That number is growing.

Fueled by illegal immigration, the U.S. 2+ Trillion Dollar Underground Economy,
would rank 9th in world economies. http://bit.ly/H0uAQi

any guesses as to how many illegal immigrants are working in the underground economy?

11.1 million illegal immigrants? GMAB

there has been a steady decline in U.S. wages since 1999. http://bit.ly/156FFv9
Household income has dropped 8% since 2000.
--------------------------------------------------

the truth is: every dollar paid to illegal immigrants, with the possible exception of some ag-related industries, is at the expense of Americans ...

in more ways than we can possibly imagine:

beginning with the least innocuous reason most illegal immigrants first came here:
to get a job so that they could send money home to their families:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Remittance

but then they sent for their extended families to come. http://bit.ly/18jKLsA

and then they had children:
Since the 1986 Reagan Amnesty, 5.5 million babies have been born to illegal immigrants, at a cost of many 100's of billions of dollars to American taxpayers, and that is just for birth, and education. Now, in addition, there is a burgeoning birthright citizenship tourism industry among Chinese in America. http://bit.ly/fvesJQ

5.5 million births at U.S. taxpayer expense
5,500,000 X $25,000 per birth on average = $137,500,000,000
$137.5 Billion Dollars in today's dollars

5.5 million K-12 educations at U.S. taxpayer expense
5,500,000 X $120,000 per K-12 education = $660,000,000,000
$660 Billion Dollars in today's dollars

In addition, based on the 1986 Reagan Amnesty, for each person who received amnesty,
Chain Migration added 5 more, poverty-level, immigrants. http://bit.ly/YQlpb4

FICA = 7.65% Social Security & Medicare Payroll Tax

*in tax year 2010, the 50% of all taxpayers earning under $34,338 paid 2.36% of the total income taxes http://bit.ly/1bYKies http://bit.ly/fa3K6T

1/3 of U. S. workers earn less than $24,000 per year

Legalized illegals won't become taxpayers;
they will become dependent on U.S. taxpayers
competing for social benefits with our existing poor

total individual income taxes paid in 2010 $0.949 trillion
total social insurance taxes paid in FY2010 $0.865 trillion

Obama is lying to America - illegal immigrants, granted citizenship, will hurt Social Security

relative to Social Security, and Medicare/Medicaid,
low-income persons, pay the least amount IN, and draw the highest percentage OUT,
relative to the amount paid in


11 million++ poor, and uneducated, legalized illegal immigrants,
added to the Social Security and Medicare/Medicaid System,
will create an enormous future deficit in these programs …
….. at the expense of Americans …..
an infusion into the Social Security, and Medicare, Trust Funds, NOW,
but placing an enormous burden on both systems in the future,
and there’s no getting around that.
