That's only one State... Billion dollars. When will we start billing Calderon for caring for his people. Can you imagine what California has spent? Billions.

one city loses more than the whole state of michigan. i am sure the cost is alot higher than what is printed.

try getting a construction job here and not speak spanish,few and far between unless doing heavy construction. building houses and things like that are all but gone for english only speaking citizens.
so far the bigger jobs like english only do to safety factor.

Texas spends just over 3 billion a year on healthcare and prison costs alone for illegals and for assorted welfare for the anchor babies.
Illgal alien children, not born here cost the state just under 2 billion more in school costs alone. Not including free meals and any special services they may otherwise need.
Basically 5 billion rounded down a year. The estimated sales tax contribution illegals make to the state are based on similar spending by the average Texan and estimated to be just over 1 billion a year.
On a conservative level illegal aliens cost Texas taxpayers 4 billion a year. Last year the state was 6 billion in the hole so get rid of the illegals and right off the bat you cut your defecit by 2/3s and more jobs are freed up for higher wages for the uemployed legal residents and more taxes from businesses hiring legal workers goes in the state coffers for unemployment, workers comp, and general employee taxes from the employer. Employers of illegal aliens ccheat the state of these taxes and those losses to the state are estimated to be half a billion dollars a year.

I am no fan of illegal immigrants, but they're hardly a major issue in Michigan. Agema comes across as some sort of clown just trying to stir up this issue in order to get publicity for himself.

I saw him on TV screaming about some conspiracy theory that there's a plot by foreign governments to impose Sharia law and Islam on the US. WTF? This Agema is a kook.

I care far more about jobs, taxes, and wasteful government spending than some crazy conspiracy theory about Sharia law that will never happen. What a moron.

"but they're hardly a major issue in Michigan."

So you want to wait until it is? Who in Michigan has had a family member killed by a illegal alien? Ask them if it's a issue?

I think ICE needs to round up every Employer in every MCDonalds, every Contractor, every Hotel Owner, etc. And deport them to Mexihole with their illegals. They have continued to hire them, and screw every other American in this Country.Without our help none of those employers could operate and make the money they're making, and the States chose to shut their eyes to this.We the Taxpaying American subsidize everything else they need to survive here.

Well then I'm sure Agema will be there to help them by holding press conferences screaming about illegal immigrants and also banning Sharia law.

There is a program out there to verify if the prospective emloyees are legal or not, but the gubament charges an arm and a leg for the service and a lot of smaller employers cannot afford or are unwilling to pay the fee. Doesn't excuse the Mcdonald's, however, have to say haven't seen many that one would suspect of being illegal.

back in the 70s and early 80s they was not much of a problem,about 3 million was what was said to be here back then showing how foolish a shamnesty for these folks is.it caused what we see now.

ca didn't have much of a problem either,it started off small then when the small group tells all their buddies its a free for all.

if mich lets the little amount go un bothered they will increase in a hurry and shocking numbers will show up
