Finally a rational report, from TEXAS GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS. 250 million dollars a year, a lot less than the so loved FAIR claim (4.7 billion of dollars). http://www.fairus.org/site/PagerNavigator/con...

. Not really, the money spent in jail is very productive because there is a big business behind it.

A few interesting facts about this report: 7.5% of the jailed people are non citizens, not necessarily undocumented. This is quit diferrent from the 30% to 40% that many assure in this forum. And this included a high percentage of people jailed just for immigration illegal entry. And if you check the FAIR report, they recognize undocumented workers in Texas pay 1 billion dollars a year in taxes. I think there is a surplus, right? Of course, to be fair, this amount doesn't include education and social services for the american citizens children of the illegal people. But still I don't think the amount could be any close to the almost 5 billion FAIR declared.

Hahaha! You FINALLY provide a link to one of your claims and it doesn't work.

Gee,“only” 250 million? You sure are cavalier with the money of the Gringos. But wait. You conveniently ignored the $240 million to add troopers, equipment, Texas Rangers and other resources to South Texas to beef up border security, and you ignored the extremely high cost of education and other social services. Pretty soon, the Gringos will be spending REAL money on your illegal alien friends.

. Yeah, I didn't mention the 240 million because it has nothing to do with expenses for undocumented workers, because it is a regular expense to protect the borders. But not, actually I mentioned the education and social services, but still, a way to go from the 4'7 billion
from FAIR. Sorry I checked the link, doesn't work, I don't know why, but please put in the search engine "The cost of illegal immigration in Texas, FAIR, and I guarantee you will find the report. It is just a one step further if you are really interested to found the information.

ANOTHER LIE

The article says the $250 million is "TO BEEF UP" border security, NOT "a regular expense."

Texas allowed the immigrants to live and work for 20 years now they are saying leave, it is not going to happen.Fix the immigration system right
change the old laws fix the visa system and illigal immigration will be greatly reduced.
Also congress should stop all the visas given to companies to import worker for the next five years.
Allowed the county to heal.Com panies import about one million worker every year that should go to Americans.I am sure the Republicans would want that but it should happen.

Easy. Go after employers who hire ILLEGAL ALIENS and the ILLEGAL ALIENS will self-deport.

I wish that you appoligists would stop trying to paint these FOREIGN CRIMINAL PARASITES as "immigrants".

As for your figures, let's see some sources. You sound just like the manure spreader.

. If you really wish to know, you could put in your search engine "the cost of illegal aliens in Texas, Fair". And those numbers are from FAIR, by the way, the supremacist organization against immigrants (I don't believe any of their numbers, included those in favor of the undocumented, if eventually they mention something). I was just trying to be ironic. In this report they say "illegal alien cost 4'7 billion dollars to Texas taxpayers every year, even with the amount they pay in taxes, the difference is still 3'7 billion dollars". Of course that means that according to FAIR, illegal aliens pay 1 billion dollars, right? Please take your option: 1.- Check it and come back and say "you are right", or. 2.- Ignore it and come back in a minute and keep laughing at me.

Post the link where it states the illegals in Texas pay 1 billion in taxes. If you are just estimating and it is your opinion say so. I work for welfare in Southern California I know for a fact they are costing us billions. Every single city with a large illegal immigrant is broke. Because they are taking more out in services then they are putting in.

. I am not estimating anything, it is the soooooooo loved FAIR organization who has that information in their report. But anyway even if the numbers were from me, there is not such thing as an "estimation". If the cost is (according to FAIR) 4'7 billion, and the bill after their taxes is 3'7 billion, the difference is 1 billion. Basic math. And if you really, really, really, really wish to know about it, please search for it, it is not that hard.
