This money might as well be taken out and burned . as it is not being spent here to help our econimiy same with the drug money leaving the states . That is being used in other countries or there banks . No profit to the United States . We need to keep that money here .

So whose economy do they help the most? You can bet it is not ours. What they spend here is what their American-born kids bring to the table in the form of free social services...recycled taxpayer money.

would love to see how much of this money is transferred out of the country compared to the days their EBT cards being refilled every month. Bet it coincides just a little.

The UN and the World Bank are killing this country. What is so good about sending US dollars to developing countries when we are pushing a 17 trillion dollar debt? We should be making every effort to keep that money here to stimulate our own economy. It would be even better if the jobs these visa holders are doing would go to unemployed Americans. That would solve two problem right there. Slave labor is killing this country.

add in the companies who set up shop in other countries. importing workers is no longer helping the USA it is hurting us all.as it stands when a company calls for imports we end up supporting them,then add to it they have kids,something those who come only to work do not do,also bringing in more of their families for us once again to support.

our gov has turned against us by allowing this. immigration was to help the country so it need to all be stopped,it hurts and no longer helps.

That is enough money to pay every unemployed American over $37,000.00 a year,and yet we are being told that it does hurt American workers.
I guess anybody stupid enough to believe that can't do the math.

I know. That was part of NAFTA. The government, on top of providing tax breaks for companies that out sourced millions of manufacturing jobs also pays to retrain the workers displaced to work in service industries then allows those that need service workers to hire illegal aliens and drive wages down.

The world bank sucks. The global economy sucks. Cheap, illegal foreign labor sucks. Open borders sucks. The UN sucks. I believe in protectionism just like our founding fathers did. All this globalism this and new world order that are evil ideas invented by elitists to increase their own wealth at the expense of the workers and taxpayers.

Well it looks like illegal immigration in the U.S. is helping Mexico's economy. Their fellow countrymen are here in the U.S. driving down wages, overwhelming schools and hospitals, draining our social services dry, depleting our resources and bankrupting our entire country. Maybe we should let the illegals stay here and all of us go to Mexico! Oh wait, we can't do that...who would foot their bills here? LOL!
