These are some costs to the American taxpayers for illegal aliens.
- The main point while they are using these services, they are not paying taxes to support them.
- Much of the 'extra' money they do make they send/save for when they go back to Mexico.
When you add the cost of using public services and their illegal usage of aid systems; are we really benefiting from their so called 'cheap labor'?
The people (corps) who benefit are very thin, and even so, if they were to use legal workers, most of the cost would be past on and spread out, in the
end we would pay a little more for product but the over all impact cost would go down greatly.
Some numbers to put into perspective.
$113 Billion - This year's cost of US illegal immigration. Approximately 75% of that cost is absorbed by the states.
$1117 - The average amount you and your family paid in taxes this year to support illegals.
$52 Billion - The cost of educating the children of illegals. This is by far the single largest cost to the American taxpayer.
$2,700 - The average dollar amount a single illegal household costs the US federal government.
51% - The percentage of Mexican immigrant households that use at least one major welfare program. 28% use more than one.
1.4 Million - The number of illegal immigrant households that use at least one major welfare program. (food stamps, WIC, school lunch, Medicaid, TANF,
SSI, and public/rent-subsidized housing)

Federal-Costs for illegal aliens:
"Over 70% of the United States annual population growth (and over 90% of California, Florida, and New York) results from illegal
immigration, at a cost of nearly $68,000,000,000.00 annually.”
