14 Reasons to Deport Illegal Aliens
 
I received this in an email just a little while ago. I am outraged, to say the least. :pissed::pissed:

Hope these 14 reasons are forwarded over and over again until they are read by the majority of Americans. Then they will have something to yell at their U.S. Congress members.

14 Reasons to Deport Illegal Aliens...

1. $11 Billion to $22 billion is spent on welfare to illegal
aliens each year. http://tinyurl.com/zob77

2. $2.2 Billion dollars a year is spent on food assistance
programs such as food stamps, WIC, and free school lunches for illegal
aliens. http://www.cis.org/articles/2004/fiscalexec.html

3. $2.5 Billion dollars a year is spent on Medicaid for illegal
aliens. http://www.cis.org/articles/2004/fiscalexec.html

4. $12 Billion dollars a year is spent on primary and secondary
school education for children here illegally and they cannot speak a word
of English! http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIP...01/ldt.01.html

5. $17 Billion dollars a year is spent for education for the
American-born children of illegal aliens, known as anchor babies.
http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIP...01/ldt.01.html

6. $3 Million Dollars a DAY is spent to incarcerate illegal
aliens. http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIP...01/ldt.01.html

7. 30% percent of all Federal Prison inmates are illegal
aliens. http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIP...01/ldt.01.html

8. $90 Billion Dollars a year is spent on illegal aliens for
Welfare &social services by the American taxpayers.
http://premium.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/0610/29/ldt.01.html

9. $200 Billion Dollars a year in suppressed American
wages are caused by the illegal aliens.
http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIP...01/ldt.01.html

10. The illegal aliens in the United States have a crime rate
that's two and a half times that of white non-illegal aliens. In particular,
their children, are going to make a huge additional crime problem in the
United States . http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIP...12/ldt.01.html

11. During the year of 2005 there were 4 to 10 MILLION illegal
aliens that crossed our Southern Border also, as many as 19,500 illegal
aliens from Terrorist Countries. Millions of pounds of drugs, cocaine, meth,
heroine and marijuana, crossed into the U. S. from the Southern border.
Homeland SecurityReport: http://tinyurl.com/t9sht

12. The National Policy Institute, "estimated that the total
cost of mass deportation would be between $206 and $230 billion or an
average cost of between $41 and $46 billion annually over a five year
period." http://www.nationalpolicyinstitute.o...eportation.pdf

13. In 2006 illegal aliens sent home $45 BILLION in remittances
back to their countries of origin. http://www.rense.com/general75/niht.htm

14. "The Dark Side of Illegal Immigration: Nearly One Million
Sex Crimes Committed by Illegal Immigrants In The United States ".
http://www.drdsk.com/articleshtml

So using the LOWEST estimates, the annual cost OF ILLEGAL
ALIENS is $338.3 BILLION DOLLARS A YEAR! So if deporting them costs
between $206 and $230 BILLION DOLLARS, get rid of em', We'll be ahead
after the 1st year!!!

A small price to pay for keeping the cost of lawn care and construction projects down.

The way to go after illegals is to whack the businesses that employ them - fat chance of that happening given the laissez faire stance of the current Chief Executive (and for that matter the attitude of Bush as well) when it comes to regulation of the economy.

Although I am a big proponent of immigration reform, chain letters and unsubstantiated lists of figures don't do much to sway me. I would like to see the source of this information before commenting on it as we may be looking at an internet hoax they likes of which www.snopes.com debunks daily...

There are links which support these facts at the end of each statement. Some are from CNN transcripts. Click 'em and read for yourself.

Whoops...overlooked the links!! At first glance, this looked much like this list:

http://www.snopes.com/politics/immigration/taxes.asp

Good find. More ammunition for the discussion.

I love this quote. What happened to the non-illegal blacks, hispanics, asians, and others? Are we deporting them too?

What a joke.

If they committed felonies, I don't care what color they are...I wish we could deport them and have someone else cover the tab. :cheers:

I agree with you EXCEPT that it's the government's attitude on the whole matter, not just Bush's. I mean if we are going to blame the government, let's blame everyone because, IMHO, congress is more at fault than the president.

No offense, but this whole "Blame Bush for everything" mentality gets old, and really just obfuscates the fact that the whole system is broken.

As for the wasted taxpayer dollars, I'd be interested in finding a way to get these people to shoulder their own tax burden if we aren't going to deport them. While we are at it, we should also eliminate these tax breaks for foreigners who open shop here but spend six months and one day a year in their home country to avoid paying tax. They enjoy all the benefits, but bear none of the burden. Ridiculous.
