"For all of  Bernie Sanders talk about leading “political revolution” against the “billionaire class,” Sanders backed Clinton, a shill of Wall Street and the Pentagon, who has nothing but contempt for the tens of millions of workers devastated by the 2008 financial crash and Obama’s pro-corporate policies."

Exclusive–Steve Camarota: Every Illegal Alien Costs Americans $70K Over Their Lifetime

Every illegal alien, over the course of their lifetime, costs American taxpayers about $70,000, Center for Immigration Studies Director of Research Steve Camarota says.

During an interview with SiriusXM Patriot’s Breitbart News Daily, Camarota said his research has revealed the enormous financial burden that illegal immigration has on America’s working and middle class taxpayers in terms of public services, depressed wages, and welfare.
“In a person’s lifetime, I’ve estimated that an illegal border crosser might cost taxpayers … maybe over $70,000 a year as a net cost,” Camarota said. “And that excludes the cost of their U.S.-born children, which gets pretty big when you add that in.”
“Once [an illegal alien] has a child, they can receive cash welfare on behalf of their U.S.-born children,” Camarota explained. “Once they have a child, they can live in public housing. Once they have a child, they can receive food stamps on behalf of that child. That’s how that works.”
Camarota said the education levels of illegal aliens, border crossers, and legal immigrants are largely to blame for the high level of welfare usage by the f0reign-born population in the U.S., noting that new arrivals tend to compete for jobs against America’s poor and working class communities.
In past waves of mass immigration, Camarota said, the U.S. did not have an expansive welfare system. Today’s ever-growing welfare system, coupled with mass illegal and legal immigration levels, is “extremely problematic,” according to Camarota, for American taxpayers.
The RAISE Act — reintroduced in the Senate by Senators Tom Cotton (R-AR), David Perdue (R-GA), and Josh Hawley (R-MO) — would cut legal immigration levels in half and convert the immigration system to favor well-educated foreign nationals, thus relieving American workers and taxpayers of the nearly five-decade-long wave of booming immigration. Currently, mass legal immigration redistributes the wealth of working and middle class Americans to the country’s top earners.
“Virtually none of that existed in 1900 during the last great wave of immigration, when we also took in a number of poor people. We didn’t have a well-developed welfare state,” Camarota continued:
We’re not going to stop [the welfare state] tomorrow. So in that context, bringing in less educated people who are poor is extremely problematic for public coffers, for taxpayers in a way that it wasn’t in 1900 because the roads weren’t even paved between the cities in 1900. It’s just a totally different world. And that’s the point of the RAISE Act is to sort of bring in line immigration policy with the reality say of a large government … and a welfare state. [Emphasis added]
The immigrants are not all coming to get welfare and they don’t immediately sign up, but over time, an enormous fraction sign their children up. It’s likely the case that of the U.S.-born children of illegal immigrants, more than half are signed up for Medicaid — which is our most expensive program. [Emphasis added]
As Breitbart News has reported, U.S. households headed by foreign-born residents use nearly twice the welfare of households headed by native-born Americans.
Every year the U.S. admits more than 1.5 million foreign nationals, with the vast majority deriving from chain migration. In 2017, the foreign-born population reached a record high of 44.5 million. By 2023, the Center for Immigration Studies estimates that the legal and illegal immigrant population of the U.S. will make up nearly 15 percent of the entire U.S. population.

Who's coming in and getting that instant customer service legal immigrants don't get? Well, people like Mirian Zelaya Gomez, a single mom with two kids and a fondness for Instagram luxury-life glamour shots who got her name in the news as "Lady Frijoles," the Honduran caravan migrant who disdained donated Mexican food in Tijuana, and who told the press she was migrating to the states to get free medical care for her kids. She's since been arrested for assaulting a relative who had given her housing in Dallas. Here she was, being booked:

MILLIONAIRE PHONY SOCIALISM BERNIE’S LA RAZA SOCIALISM to keep the “cheap” labor flowing into our jobs

 Bernie supports immigration reform that will address the legal status of the 11 million undocumented people  (EXCEPT THERE ARE 40 MILLION ILLEGALS HERE ALREADY) in our country, protect American jobs by way of visa reform, secure the border, and protect undocumented workers from labor exploitation.
The website states that Sanders supports a pathway to citizenship for all people who are in the United States illegally, the Dream Act, “Visa reform” and border security “without building a fence.”
Sanders also voted for the “Gang of Eight” immigration bill in 2013 that would have given amnesty to all of the people in the United States illegally.

DHS Releases Nearly 8,000 Border Crossers, Illegal Aliens in One Week

Immigrants wait for assistance with travel plans after being released from detention through the 'catch and release' immigration policy at a Catholic Charities relief centre on June 17, 2018 in McAllen, Texas. - They said they were separated for approximately six days while in detention.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) released nearly 8,000 border crossers and illegal aliens over the last week, new federal data confirms.

According to catch and release numbers obtained by Breitbart News, DHS has released about 7,935 border crossers and illegal aliens into the interior of the United States in the last seven days.
The catch and release process often entails federal immigration officials busing border crossers into nearby border cities and dropping them off with the promise that they will show up for their immigration and asylum hearings, sometimes years later. The overwhelming majority of border crossers and illegal aliens are never deported from the country once they are released into the U.S.
Since December 21, 2018, DHS has released:
  • 13,200 border crossers into the San Diego, California, area
  • 23,700 border crossers into the Phoenix, Arizona, area
  • 40,600 border crossers into the El Paso, Texas, area
  • 56,000 border crossers into the San Antonio, Texas, area
In total, since the end of last year, DHS has released about 133,500 border crossers and illegal aliens into the U.S. — a population more than double the population of Portland, Maine, and nearly triple the population of Galveston, Texas. Current data suggests that DHS releases more than 1,000 border crossers and illegal aliens into the U.S. every day.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has been tasked with releasing border crossers and illegal aliens into the interior of the U.S., ICE officials have confirmed, under an agreement between former DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and ICE official Ron Vitiello.
At current rates, DHS is on track to release nearly 415,000 border crossers and illegal aliens into the interior of the U.S. by the end of this year. The mass release of border crossers has coincided with a surge of illegal immigration at the southern border, where about one to 1.5 million illegal aliens, in total, could arrive in the U.S. this year at current projections. Some analysts project that there could be a surge of about half a million illegal aliens arriving at the southern border over the next three months.

MEXIFORNIA: The Globalist Democrat Party’s Vision of America

Migrant enclaves already are at the top of the U.S. lists for bad places to live - 10 of the 50 worst places in America to live according to this list are in California, and all of them are famous for their illegal populations. MONICA SHOWALTER



California—not Mississippi, New Mexico, or West Virginia—has the highest poverty rate in the United States. According to the Census Bureau’s Supplemental Poverty Measure—which accounts for the cost of housing, food, utilities, and clothing, and which includes noncash government assistance as a form of income—nearly one out of four Californians is poor. Kerry Jackson
California’s de facto status as a one-party state lies at the heart of its poverty problem. With a permanent majority in the state senate and the assembly, a prolonged dominance in the executive branch, and a weak opposition, California Democrats have long been free to indulge blue-state ideology while paying little or no political price. The state’s poverty problem is unlikely to improve while policymakers remain unwilling to unleash the engines of economic prosperity that drove California to its golden years. Kerry Jackson
As Breitbart News reported, if chain migration is not ended — as President Donald Trump has demanded — the U.S. electorate will forever be changed, with between seven to eight million new foreign-born individuals being eligible to vote because of chain migration, and overall, an additional 15 million new foreign-born voters.
Missouri Senator Claire McCaskillhas identified California Senator Kamala Harris as the party leader on issues of immigration and race. Harris wants a moratorium on construction of new immigration-detention facilities in favor of the old “catch and release” policy for illegal aliens, and has urged a shutdown of the government rather than compromise on mass amnesty.


According to the Federation for American Immigration Reform’s 2017 report, illegal immigrants, and their children, cost American taxpayers a net $116 billion annually -- roughly $7,000 per alien annually. While high, this number is not an outlier: a recent study by the Heritage Foundation found that low-skilled immigrants (including those here illegally) cost Americans trillions over the course of their lifetimes, and a study from the National Economics Editorial found that illegal immigration costs America over $140 billion annually. As it stands, illegal immigrants are a massive burden on American taxpayers.

"Congress must prioritize four repairs for the immigration system before contemplating any DACA-style amnesty negotiation, said Brat:
1. Ending chain migration and the visa lottery;
2. Mandating employer use of E-Verify;
3. Construction of a southern border wall; and
4. Interior enforcement of immigration law."






(these are highly DATED stats)

This is another "fact" spun from the 2004 op-ed by Heather Mac Donald, whose article refers to a single Los Angeles gang and the conjecture of an unnamed federal prosecutor.

1.      "40% of all workers in L.A. County are working for cash and not paying taxes. . . . This is because they are predominantly illegal immigrants working without a green card." The Mexican tax-free economy in Los Angeles County is estimated to be in excess of $2 billion dollars a year.

2.     "95% of warrants for murder in Los Angeles are for illegal aliens . . . "

3.     "75% of people on the most wanted list in Los Angeles are illegal aliens."

4.    "Over 2/3 of all births in Los Angeles County are to illegal alien Mexicans on Medi-Cal, whose births were paid for by taxpayers." The County of Los Angeles hands Mexico’s anchor baby breeders more than a BILLION DOLLARS a year in welfare.

5.     "Nearly 35% of all inmates in California detention centers are Mexican nationals here illegally." California has the largest and most expensive prison system in the country. Half the inmates are now Mexicans. Half the murders in California are by Mexican gangs.

6.    Over 300,000 illegal aliens in Los Angeles County are living in garages.

7. "The FBI reports half of all gang members in Los Angeles are most likely illegal aliens from south of the border."

8. "Nearly 60% of all occupants of HUD properties are illegal."

9. 21 radio stations in L. A. are Spanish speaking.

10. In L. A. County 5.1 million people speak English, 3.9 million speak Spanish.

THE NEW PRIVILEGED CLASS: Illegals (unregistered democrats)!

This is why you work From Jan - May paying taxes to the government ....with the rest of the calendar year is money for you and your family.

Take, for example, an illegal alien with a wife and five children. He takes a job for $5.00 or 6.00/hour. At that wage, with six dependents, he pays no income tax, yet at the end of the year, if he files an Income Tax Return, with his fake Social Security number, he gets an "earned income credit" of up to $3,200..... free.

He qualifies for Section 8 housing and subsidized rent.

He qualifies for food stamps.

He qualifies for free (no deductible, no co-pay) health care.

His children get free breakfasts and lunches at school.

He requires bilingual teachers and books.

He qualifies for relief from high energy bills.

If they are or become, aged, blind or disabled, they qualify for SSI.

Once qualified for SSI they can qualify for Medicare. All of this is at (our) taxpayer's expense.

He doesn't worry about car insurance, life insurance, or homeowners insurance.

Taxpayers provide Spanish language signs, bulletins and printed material.

He and his family receive the equivalent of $20.00 to $30.00/hour in benefits.

Working Americans are lucky to have $5.00 or $6.00/hour left after Paying their bills and his.

The American taxpayers also pay for increased crime, graffiti and trash clean-up.

Cheap labor? YEAH RIGHT! Wake up people! 

LA RAZA AMERICA: A Mexicans welfare state


There is also financial and political carnage perpetrated against our nation:

1. $11 Billion to $22 Billion is spent on welfare to illegal immigrants each year by state governments (CALIFORNIA SPENDS $30 BILLION PER YEAR IN SOCIAL SERVICES TO ILLEGALS. LOS ANGELES COUNTY CHIPS IN A BILLION PER YEAR FOR THE LA RAZA ANCHOR BABY BREEDERS).
2. $22 Billion dollars a year is spent on food Assistance programs such as
food stamps, WIC, and free school lunches for illegal immigrants.
3. $2.5 Billion dollars a year is spent on Medicaid for illegal immigrants.
4. $12 Billion dollars a year is spent on Primary and secondary school
education for children here illegally and they cannot speak a word of
5. $17 Billion dollars a year is spent for Education for the American-born
Children of illegal immigrants, known as Anchor babies.
6. $3 Million Dollars a DAY is spent to incarcerate illegal immigrants.
7. 30% percent of all Federal Prison Inmates are illegal immigrants. Nearly half the inmates in CA are Mexicans.
8. $130 Billion Dollars a year is spent on Illegal immigrants for Welfare & Social Services by the American taxpayers.
9. $400 Billion dollars a year in suppressed American wages are caused by the illegal immigrants.
10. In 2006, illegal immigrants sent home $45 BILLION in remittances to their Countries of origin.
11. The Dark Side of Illegal Immigration: Nearly One million sex crimes committed By Illegal Immigrants In The United States.
12. From $40 to $60 billion hauled back to Mexico from heroin sales!

JOE LEGAL v LA RAZA JOSE ILLEGAL (registered Democrat voter)…

Which do you think has it much, much, much better in America’s open borders?

You should know! Your taxes are paying for his anchor baby welfare even as Jose Illegals enjoys a tax-free underground economy. Hey, Jose voted Democrat for more!

‘Breaking Point:’ Migrant 

Family Apprehension Up 

374 Percent, Say Feds

EL PASO, TX - MARCH 22: In this handout image provided by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Office of Public Affairs - Visual Communications Division, U.S. Border Patrol agents, including members of U.S. Border Patrol's BORSTAR teams (in tactical uniforms) provide food, water and medical screening to scores of …

Border Patrol officials announced that the apprehension of migrant families who crossed the border illegally between ports of entry skyrocketed by 374 percent when compared to the first six months of the last fiscal year. Agents apprehended 189,584 Family Unit Aliens (FMUA) during the first six months of Fiscal Year 2018, which began on October 1, 2018. This is up from 39,975 during the same period in Fiscal Year 2018.

“The Border Patrol is facing an unprecedented humanitarian and border security crisis,” U.S. Border Patrol Chief Law Enforcement Director Brian Hastings told reporters on a conference call on Tuesday. “We’ve arrived at the breaking point.”
During the month of March, Border Patrol agents apprehended 53,077 FMUAs — mostly in the Rio Grande Valley and El Paso Sectors. In addition, agents apprehended another 8,975 Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC). Border Patrol officials define a family unit as one adult parent or guardian traveling with one or more minors. One year earlier, agents apprehended only 8,875 FMUAs and 4,140. In March 2017, agents apprehended 1,126 family units and 1,041 unaccompanied minors.
The nearly 190,000 migrant families apprehended during the first six months of the year compares to 107,212 for all of Fiscal Year 2018 and 75,622 for all of Fiscal Year 2017.
Due to overcrowding, Border Patrol began directly releasing non-criminal migrants on their own recognizance to nonprofits, charities, or to bus stations. Since the new policy began on March 19, Hastings said that more than 11,000 have been released. All migrants undergo a criminal background and medical check prior to release.
The relatively new human smuggling tactic of crossing migrants in large groups is also negatively impacting the agency’s ability to prosecute its national security mission. Border Patrol defines a large migrant group as more than 100 migrants. So far this year, Border Patrol agents have encountered 100 large groups — 60 of those in very remote areas. During all of FY 2018, Border Patrol agents only encountered 13 large groups — only two in FY 2017.
During a two-day period in March, Rio Grande Valley Agents encountered seven large groups totaling nearly 900 migrants between them.
The largest number of migrant family units apprehended so far this year came to the U.S. from Guatemala (90,447). This is followed by Honduras (72,728), El Salvador (17,396), and Mexico (1,573). For Unaccompanied minors, 16,392 came from Guatemala, 9,138 from Honduras, 5,024 from Mexico and 4,479 from El Salvador.
The record number of migrant family apprehensions forced Border Patrol leaders to divert 40 percent of agents from their national border security duties and place them on humanitarian duties including processing, transportation, medical screening, and hospital watch, Hastings stated. Currently, Border Patrol agents are referring 63 migrants per day to medical facilities at a tremendous cost to the agency and taxpayers. Hastings said that Border Patrol has spent $4 million on “hospital watch” so far this year. This cost is for the agents who have to stay with migrants who are in the hospital due to illness or injury. This is on pace to exceed $12 million for this fiscal year.

President Trump pulling up the drawbridge on goodies for illegals

With the wall still in the works, President Trump isn't sitting idle as 1.5 million illegal migrants prepare to storm the U.S. border this year.  He's moving swiftly to get some kind of handle on the migrant surge by strengthening the U.S.'s loophole-filled system of laws that have made immigrating here illegally more attractive to would-be migrants than following U.S. law.  He's pulling up the drawbridge.
OANN reports that Trump's new package of measures, which should be complete by this summer, may just be the invisible architecture to deter illegal immigration as effectively as a wall.  With the migrant surge forming, it can't come soon enough.  OANN reports:
President Trump is preparing to make some dramatic changes to immigration policies.  He has reportedly directed top White House officials to take a more aggressive stance on immigration.  This comes as record-high numbers of immigrants are reaching the southern border, pushing Customs and Border Protection to its breaking point.
Some of the changes include a new way of analyzing asylum claims by comparing the person's fears to the actual conditions of their home country.
Regulatory changes will also make it harder for "difficult or low-skilled" immigrants to enter the country, while making it easier for high-skilled immigrants who will likely be self sufficient.
Additionally, the government will also be allowed to hold migrant children longer than the current 20-day limit.
There's also this, from the Daily Caller:
The White House plan to go after remittance payments falls in line with a proposal from former Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, who is being considered to replace outgoing DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen. 
Kobach told Breitbart News on Tuesday that this will be an effective way for President Donald Trump to compel the Mexican government to take more enforcement action against Central Americans trafficking through their country.
Kobach told Breitbart, "The threat I propose is one that actually helps us if we follow through on it.  That is the threat of ending remittances from the majority of people in the United States from Mexico who are here illegally," adding "they don't want to risk losing that massive flow of foreign capital.  In most years, it's their second biggest source of foreign capital."
What we are seeing here is a legal wall going up, much as a physical one is going up.  Walls, as Richard Fernandez noted in his brilliant piece here, are basically sorting tools: "'Everybody knows' that bridges are good and walls are bad.  But events in Central America and the Middle East suggest that walls may actually play an important role in governing the global world after all," he writes.  After making a doozy of an argument illustrating that, he concludes: "Walls will eventually be understood as places where information can be intelligently applied.
What can be added to that is that legal infrastructure is a wall, too.  If you readThe Mystery of Capital: Why Capitalism Triumphs in the West and Fails Everywhere Else, by Hernando de Soto, you will also recall the important arguments made about invisible architecture, with a particularly strong chapter on the importance of legal order.
Columnist Debra Saunders made a good case the other day that this is where change is most critical, arguing that it is even more important than a wall, writing:
Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen recently argued that a law which prevents immigration officials from promptly returning minors from the so-called Northern Triangle countries and a court decision that limits how long the government can hold minors serve as loopholes that "create a functionally open border."
That's why Mark Krikorian of the pro-enforcement Center for Immigration Studies always has argued that changing immigration law and enforcement would be far more effective than building a wall — not that he's opposed to spending on a wall.
Trump's push for the wall shows that he is working to keep to his 2016 campaign promise: But it really can't do much to discourage economic migrants who ultimately would not qualify for asylum but nonetheless believe they will be able to get into the United States through a port of entry.
That's the problem with Trump's beloved wall.  It may resonate with his base, but it won't bring about the changes the base wants.
Suddenly, we are seeing that someone in the White House understands that extremely well — and is presenting the legal changes she mentions.
It would also be good to see more strengthening and enforcement on the existing U.S. law to ensure that the migrants coming in are unlikely to be public charges — a longtime U.S. law that is being widely flouted now, and holding officials responsible for allowing in migrants who are obviously going to present costs and problems.
It is important, because the migrant surge as it is now is about importing poverty. The unvetted migrants rolling in are not only bringing poverty, social disintegration, a lack of skills, the lowest education levels in the hemisphere, the lowest English skills in the hemisphere, and low social capital with them, they are coming to claim U.S. public services, taking far more out than they will ever be able to put in in taxes.
Schools, in red districts gone recently blue in the last congressional election, are particularly susceptible to being flooded by indigent migrant children, brought in for their value to allow their parents instantly into the country without vetting.
Who's coming in and getting that instant customer service legal immigrants don't get? Well, people like Mirian Zelaya Gomez, a single mom with two kids and a fondness for Instagram luxury-life glamour shots who got her name in the news as "Lady Frijoles," the Honduran caravan migrant who disdained donated Mexican food in Tijuana, and who told the press she was migrating to the states to get free medical care for her kids. She's since been arrested for assaulting a relative who had given her housing in Dallas. Here she was, being booked:
The Latino commenters on these threads are loaded with contempt for this person's arrogance and entitlement, writing time and again that it's time to build a wall. Examples of abusers of the system such as this do incense many Hispanics in the U.S. same as they do the rest of the country, and their observed fury is obviously a reason why so many are supporting President Trump - in a majority percentage higher than the general U.S. public overall. Why are people like this being allowed in at all, while legal immigrants to the states must wait ten years and pay thousands of dollars in costs? Zelaya treated her entry to the states for exactly the price she paid for it - which was nothing.
What Trump is ultimately doing now in his new legal reforms to wipe out abuses - is making immigration to the states again something that has value.
