Re: National Data, By Edwin S. Rubenstein Illegal Aliens Pay Taxes Too—But Too Little
From: Haydee Pavia [Email her]
In California, it costs $11,000 in state funds and $9,000 in federal funds to educate one child of an illegal alien for one year. Show me ONE illegal alien that pays $20,000 a year in income taxes and has only one child in school. In her book Invasion, investigative reporter Michelle Malkin states that most illegal aliens don't pay taxes and those who do, report such low wages that they get a tax refund from the IRS.
According to a recent report by the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR.), it costs California $20.2 Billion a year to educate, medicate and incarcerate illegal aliens. Just in the Los Angeles County, it costs $570 Million a year in food stamps and welfare for the U.S. born children of illegal aliens.[ L.A. County welfare to children of illegal immigrants grows —Payments to U.S.-born children rose to $52 million in July, prompting calls for policy changes By Teresa Watanabe, Los Angeles Times, September 05, 2010]
California has a state deficit of over $20 Billion and small wonder, since we carry the lion's share of illegal aliens in the entire nation.
