COSTS OF ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION TO FLORIDIANS

$5.2 BILLION ESTIMATED COSTS TO FLORIDIANS IN 2008.

The Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) 2010 study of 2008 costs to Florida taxpayers for illegal aliens in Florida were $5.2 billion net. The annual state and local fiscal costs borne by Florida taxpayers resulted from 950,000 illegal aliens and 186,000 of their U.S. born children. This rapidly rising annual price tag covers the costs of K-12 education and medical care for illegal immigrants and their children, and incarceration of illegal aliens who have commited other crimes in Florida. Another aspect is that while 12 percent of Floridians are officially unemployed, illegal aliens fill more than 8 percent of jobs in the state.

Read the facts.

2013 AMNESTY PROPOSED

NumbersUSA is the national leader in efforts to prevent citizenship and social welfare benefits being conferred on 11-19 million illegal aliens now residing in the U.S.

An enormous, coordinated effort led by a coalition of one-world globalists -- including George Soros' Open Society Foundation, the Ford Foundation, Carnegie Corporation, S.E.I.U. union, and various members of the mainstream media -- is trying to persuade the public and Congress that almost all illegal aliens should be given amnesty, with citizenship, voting, and huge social welfare benefits.

More than $1.5 billion has been spent since 2007 on lobbying to press for amnesty and more foreign workers. (1) This money has employed more than 3,000 paid lobbyists working for so-called Comprehensive Immigration Reform since 2008, according to a meta-analysis. (2) Hundreds of political employees are working to pass the amnesty.

The Senate has passed an amnesty bill, S. 744. President Obama is pressing for an even more radical bill. Even more troubling, he has flaunted existing immigration law by releasing thousands of illegal aliens from jails, issuing edicts granting amnesty to hundreds of thousands of younger illegal aliens and used sequestration to cut back funding to border security. (3)

If the Senate bill passes in the House, the financial costs will be ruinous, $6.3 trillion in lifetime costs,* and the political effects will be earth shattering. Specifically, many analysts doubt if Republicans or conservatives will be able to win the Senate, the House, or the Presidency in future elections, based on the much more liberal political views of current illegal immigrants. (4)

Our objective is to stop the amnesty effort cold. Later, once this "Comprehensive" effort is defeated, reasonable compromises can be proposed, but the other side is only interested in total victory at this time.
