Illegal Immigration Costs U.S. $113 Billion a Year, Study Finds

$113 Billion Dollars !
That's a lot of Tax Dollars that could be put to use elsewhere , but it does not seem to be an Issue for the Pro Immigration Crowd .

But if we take the Illegal immigrants out of the Picture What are these people to do with their Farms ? how are the Whacky liberals going to get all them votes ?

we cant do anything about immigration because of these issues .

Illegal immigrants hold 2.8 Million Jobs in the United States , and we are constantly told that NO U.S. CITIZENS , want these jobs !

How does anyone know this when Illegal Immigrants have been taking these jobs for decades , and Mainly because they are willing to undercut Minimum wage workers !

No Immigrants mean less money and less votes , and these people are willing to sacrifice America and it's workers because of this !

The cost of harboring illegal immigrants in the United States is a staggering $113 billion a year -- an average of $1,117 for every “native-headed” household in America -- according to a study conducted by the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR).

The study, a copy of which was provided to FoxNews.com, “is the first and most detailed look at the costs of illegal immigration ever done,” says Bob Dane, director of communications at FAIR, a conservative organization that seeks to end almost all immigration to the U.S.

FAIR's opponents in the bitter immigration debate describe the organization as "extremist," though it is regularly called upon to testify before Congress.

Groups that support immigration reform immediately attacked FAIR's report and pointed out that it is the polar opposite of the Perryman Report, a 2008 study paid for by a liberal group now called the American Immigration Council. That study found that illegal immigration was actually a boon to the American economy. It estimated that illegal immigrants add $245 billion in Gross Domestic Product to the economy and account for 2.8 million jobs.

The FAIR report comes as President Obama moves immigration reform to the top of his agenda, and it is likely to be a rallying point for those who oppose the president. At a speech Thursday at American University in Washington, D.C., Obama argued that the entire immigration system is broken and needs sweeping reforms. Among the changes he said are needed is "a path for [farm] workers to earn legal status," which the president's critics called an opening for a new amnesty program.

FAIR's report argues that there are two choices in the immigration debate: “One choice is pursuing a strategy that discourages future illegal migration and increasingly diminishes the current illegal alien population through denial of job opportunities
and deportations. The other choice,” it says, “would repeat the unfortunate decision made in 1986 to adopt an amnesty that invited continued illegal migration.”
