Robert Rector of the Heritage Foundation has just finished a study that makes the White House plan for big increases in low-skill labor sound like a plot to bankrupt America.

The study looked at households headed by high-school drop-outs.
It found high school drop-outs accounted for about:

9% of native-born Americans
25% of legal immigrants
50% of illegal aliens

The new Bush/Republican Senator plan would dramatically increase the number of legal immigrant drop-outs and make sure that millions of illegal drop-outs stayed in our country.
The cost to Americans will be staggering.
Rector found that the share of federal, state and local costs for each of these high-school-dropout households is around $43,000 a year.
But he subtracted out their share of defense and interest on debt, concluding that:

THE INCREMENTAL FEDERAL, STATE AND LOCAL EXPENDITURES FOR EACH HOUSEHOLD HEADED BY A HIGH-SCHOOL DROPOUT IS AROUND
$32,000 a year in government support
The Heritage Foundation scholar then painstakingly dug through government data to find every kind of tax that these households pay. He even included money spent on lottery tickets ($686 per year) and excise taxes, as well as FICA and property taxes and many others.
He said he was a bit surprised to find that these high-school-dropout households pay more taxes than he expected:
Nearly $10,000 a year in taxes
Nonetheless, the bottom line is that these households require:$22,000 each year
in net taxpayer subsidies
Why would our elected officials want to import foreign workers who require such huge infusions of taxpayer cash?
And why would they be proposing increasing that flow?

Even more astounding is that they want to force American taxpayers to continue to subsidize those who have come here illegally or broken our laws to stay.

Why would the Senate and House Democratic leadership -- and now the White House and most Senate Republicans -- want to keep these lawbreakers -- every one of whose households will cost Americans an average net of $22,000 a year?
Rector's study indicates that these total households headed by foreign-born high school drop-outs are costing taxpayers a net of around:
$100 BILLION a year
Yet, the new White House/Republican Senator immigration plan would ensure that all the illegal aliens getting that subsidy would remain to keep collecting ...... and that we would add large numbers of new households every year so that the total subsidy could grow much higher.
This Heritage Foundation Study makes it devastatingly clear that our current immigration policies amount to
BIGGEST UNFUNDED MANDATE ON LOCAL AND STATE GOVERNMENTS

Now, President Bush and apparently the majority of Republican Senators want to radically increase immigration's costs for local and state governments (and their taxpayers)!

Great, you heard it here first...Canada wants our illegal immigrants. This should be much more cost effective than shipping them to their home lands.

Thank you, Canada!

undocumented immigrants cannot access welfare programs. you have to be a citizen, or at least a legal permanent resident, to get welfare benefits. please check your facts.
Ahhh..but their kids born here can and do get benefits and if you think the illegal alien members of that family don't nibble off that table, you're in denial. In addition, illegasl receive free health care because hospitals are not allowed to turn them away or ask their status.

Civil or criminal, matters not--in the end the law was broken! If you're going to forgive illegal aliens for violating the law, then I certainly hope you're also willing to turn the other cheek when an American does it! Aren't citizens as deserving of sympathy, empathy and compassion as those that enter the country illegally? Aren't citizens' kids just as important?

Why thank you! We'll send all of our illegal aliens North! Embrace them and let them move into your neighborhood, even your home! I expect no less from such a loving, caring, polite, cuddly Canadian Bear!

Leave us self-centered, rude, evil, uncaring and senseless animals to ourselves!

also, the reason the desert is filled with this stuff is because of human desperation, plain and simple. not opportunism. who would risk dying in the desert if they weren't desperate? think about it.
But not desperate enough to stand and fight at home, huh? Guess it's easier to let the corrupt government and elite force them out of their own country?

I have a friend in Texas who has been battling human excrement, garbage and other bodily fluids on his land because illegals were crossing it. It has gotten better lately, but it has not completely stopped. Does desperation or cowardice mean you get to destroy other people's property all in the hunt for personal prosperity and opportunity?

Things get rather complicated the nearer to the equator one gets. I believe it has something to do with keeping clothes on.

The parents should have thought more about their children. The law is the law. Send the kids back to Mexico to other relatives. Enough is enough.

I think its time to start lining the illegals up and executing them. When I get chased out of a Marlborough resturant for speaking English, thats it, I am done. If I refused to serve Brazillians I would wind up in federal court. But they get to chase me away for speaking English because they are a 'minority'. If your so goddam downtrodden why did you come here to begin with.
LINE THESE BASTARDS UP AND START SHOOTING THEM!
What do you mean you were "chased out of a restaurant"?

Now Sheila, this is why you can not have weak in the knees women/people running things, the male intolerance and judgement is what keeps order and keeps you safe, not everyone is afforded what we have and "just" giving everyone what they want of this country and its resources isn't possible even if it was acceptable to all, just remember we're at a tipping point in this country and giving all these 3rd world people our country isn't going to make this a better place to live it will omly make quality of life less enjoyable they got to go for this country to move forward not the opposite that Obama would like you to believe.
