There it is. I can't wait until we start tallying up what illegal aliens are really costing us. The backlash will be horrendous.

"This statistic addresses households headed by an illegal immigrant. However, many of these households include American citizens within the family, often children who were born in the United States and who received citizenship at birth. Indeed, given the web of restrictions on the granting of government benefits to illegal immigrants, most of the "welfare" benefits being counted in the CIS table are going to citizen children, not to adult illegal immigrants. Indeed, the government is responsible for checking the immigration status of people receiving benefits."

Welfare is going to illegal aliens and children of illegal aliens be they US citizens or not.

Children who have no connection to the country other than their parents snuck across the border.

This is why the 14th amendment must be closed down.

It's illegal for them to be working here. Illegals don't have any regard for the law. No wonder they flee their country and bring their rotten culture here.

when you add in the free medical foodstamps housing and all other things you just may get your 20 bux an hour,when doing those jobs all other things they get need to be added in on wages showing that cheap labor may be cheap only for the dirtbag hiring them the rest of the cost goes on us.

my insurance is high and i have a premium deducts and co pays the insurance they get everything is covered,so the worth of that insurance is easy 3,000 a month or more .

At least one parent applying on behalf of a citizen child should be a legal American. The kids never get the full benefit of the entitlements when their greedy parents get their hands on them. Further, they commit fraud when they apply for these benefits when they fail to include all income coming into the home. It looks as though there is no husband, because the wife has a different surname than the hubby, which enables them to get a higher benefit. I find it really funny that they can't speak a word of English, yet sail through the paperwork which gives them their freebies.

Precisely. What people on the left don't seem to get is that these so-called immigrants have no allegiance to this country and in many cases, they loathe Americans. Sure, they make for low-cost menial labor, but that's only on the surface and that's what needs to be quantified: Their *true* cost.

I maintain that as long as the 14th Amendment is being perverted, the true cost of illegal immigration is drastically increased. We're creating generations of people raised with a different ethic; people who don't want to assimilate, who don't want to become American. People whose only purpose in being is to bleed their host country. That is the true cost of illegal immigration.

Did anyone else not understand why they conslcuded the 41% was misleading when above they worte:
"The most detailed statistics we found were from Camarota’s group. In a 2007 report, the center published a table titled, "Welfare Use for Illegal Alien-Headed Households." The table reported that 40 percent of illegal immigrant-headed households used any "major welfare" program in the previous calendar year. The percentage was even higher in illegal-immigrant headed households that included children: a whopping 71 percent, according to a a 2011 report by the center.

So there is some basis for the 40 percent figure."

Did anyone else think this was kinda "buried":

So its no biggie to take care of illegals' kids?
