Virginia Studies Expose High Cost of Illegal Immigration and Widespread Voter Dissatisfaction

June 16, 2009

Simultaneous studies, released this week by the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), document the true costs of illegal immigration in Virginia and demonstrate strong voter objections to the burdens placed on them by illegal immigration. A new Zogby International poll of 606 likely voters across the state found that, by a large margin, Virginians believe that illegal immigration is harming their state. Their perceptions are rooted in reality. A separate FAIR study, the Costs of Illegal Immigration to Virginians found that providing education and health care to illegal aliens and their families, and incarcerating criminal illegal aliens, costs state taxpayers nearly $1.7 billion annually.

The Costs of Illegal Immigration to Virginians found that taxpayers spend:

  • $1.56 billion a year to educate illegal immigrant children and the U.S. born children of illegal immigrants.
  • $100 million a year on unreimbursed health care for illegal aliens.
  • $45 million a year to incarcerate criminal illegal aliens.
  • The total represents an annual cost to each of Virginia’s native-born headed households of $625.

The cost study is based on an estimate that the illegal alien population in Virginia is now 295,000 persons. This represents 2.3 percent of the national total illegal alien population, and it is the nation’s 10th largest concentration of illegal aliens. It is also about 3.8 percent of Virginia’s overall population.

The story continues …..

    We need to just screen these people for proof of legal residency the moment they set foot into any public service.

    (One more time)
    1000 new ICE agents per state.
    Pay them $1000 per week per agent.
    That’s $1,000,000 per week per state or $4,000,000 per month

    Times 50 States= $200,000,000 per month
    Lets say to get the job done, 6 months, even though I believe
    it could be done sooner.
    6 months x $200,000,000= $1,200,000,000 (1-billion two hundred million)

    If each agent apprehends just one illegal per day
    on a 20 day work week per month.
    That’s 20 x 1000 agents = 20,000 Illegals per month per state
    Times 50 states That’s 1,000,000 a month.
    Over a six month period = 6,000,000 Illegals.
    If it takes a year, so what! we’ll get 12,000,000!!
    It’s a drop in the bucket compared to what it’s costing us now and
    will save us billion in the future.
    The rest will leave as soon as their support system breaks down.
    Don’t tell me we can’t do it!!

    On any given day of the week in South West Florida I could find a dozen at the
    Home DePot or at a labor pool center or find them riding their bikes to the 7-11.
    The point is we can do it! and employ a lot of out of work AMERICAN CITIZENS
    in the process.
    Now, add another billion for deportation, transportation and miscellaneous expenses
    and we’ll have most of our Country back not counting all the fake so called citizens that
    sneaked into your country and took an oath to our constitution but, would prefer to
    burn it and cut your head off. We can take care of them later as well.
    When we muster the strength and if we can bring the brain dead populous back from the Obamazone.
    which I doubt…
    America needs a leader that won’t tip toe through the tulips. One that will call it like it is.
    America is waiting for that person and ready for their marching orders.
