Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst (R-TX) reported that educating the unaccompanied minor illegal immigrant children already in Texas would cost the state half a billion dollars.

“Obviously we have had over 50,000 unaccompanied children come into Texas already…each 5,000 children that we have to educate them is going to cost the state of Texas some $50 million.  That’s a huge amount of money” he said on Friday’s “Your World with Neil Cavuto” on the Fox News Channel.

Dewhurst also slammed the president for doing an “end-around the Constitution. All he has to do is enforce his obligation, the federal government’s obligation, to secure the border, but the federal government has failed miserably.”

According to Dewhurst, the costs of that failure are high as well “we have already appropriated $800 million, but it’s costing us $20 million a month because the federal government failed, failed to do their job. $20 million for the DPS, our state police and for the National Guard” he stated.

    To my understanding, illegal immigrants have NO rights in the united States of America. Rights are for the people of the united States of America, am I wrong? When birthright babies has been interpreted to be babies of illegal immigrants born in the USA, who made that determination and why has it not been corrected? This correction would change a lot of Americas’ problems and protect our borders and our people like other countries do.
