LA Mayor Villaraigosa Is a Dope… Illegal Immigration Costs Billions & Arizona Law Will Bring Down Costs
A new survey released today shows that the illegal immigrant problem in Arizona alone is costing the taxpayers billions of dollars. And, despite the confused efforts by leftist loons to boycott the state, Arizona will see savings that will far overwhelm any fallout from these boycotts.
FOX News reported:
Arizona’s illegal immigrant population is costing the state’s taxpayers even more than once thought — a whopping $2.7 billion, according to researchers at the public interest group that helped write the state’s new immigration law.
Researchers at FAIR – The Federation for American Immigration Reform — released data exclusively to FoxNews.com that show a steady cost climb in multiple areas, including incarceration, education and health, in the last five years.
FAIR’s cost estimates – compiled for a comprehensive national immigration report it plans to release next month – include several new cost areas, including welfare and the justice system, that weren’t in previous reports.
FAIR admits that the cost to implement the new law in some of those categories, such as incarceration, will add to the economic strain on the state. But overall, it says, the loss of immigrants either from the deterrent effect of the law, voluntary exodus or from mass deportations, will help the state financially.
Also, the savings to the state will far overwhelm any fallout from boycotts (estimated at between $7 million and $52 million) being threatened in the wake of the law’s passage, according to FAIR spokesman Bob Dane.
