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.
