Report: Illegal immigrants cost Americans BILLIONS of dollars every year
· Mar 6, 2023 ·

This is truly obscene.

According to a report from the Federation for American Immigration Reform, illegal aliens are costing Americans BILLIONS of dollars every year in taxpayer money and medical fees.

From Breitbart:

Illegal immigration costs American taxpayers and hospitals billions of dollars in medical costs every year, the Federation for American Immigration Reform pointed out...

One 2018 study found that Americans were spending as much as $18.5 billion a year on health care for illegal migrants.

Meanwhile, some migrants come to America specifically to access healthcare. Monsi Contreras's family, for example, came to America illegally so that her mother could access "more advanced treatments" in America after suffering a stroke. In Mexico, her father was a banker and her mother was a journalist.

In another instance, a family crossed the Rio Grande at night with one woman who was confined to a wheelchair.

The $18.5 billion annual cost is likely significantly higher now, five years later. FAIR points out that "These must now be considered low-ball figures, given the soaring costs of health care and sharp increases in illegal immigration under the Biden administration."

Five years ago, while Trump was president and illegal immigration was at low levels, we were spending an estimated $18.5 BILLION on health care for illegals.

And we know how much more healthcare costs now and how many MILLIONS of more illegal immigrants have come in under Biden.

There is no doubt that the price tag has gone up to an even more astonishing high.

In fact, a report from FAIR found that roughly 1.3 million illegal immigrants were released into America in just the first year of President Biden's administration. The figure is larger than the population of San Jose, California, which had the tenth largest population of any American city in 2022.

But in addition to those who were released into the United States, there were also roughly one million "gotaways," which leads FAIR to estimate that "Approximately 2.3 million illegal aliens successfully entered the country." This adjusted figure is larger than the populations of Phoenix, Philadelphia, San Antonio, San Diego, Dallas, and San Jose, the fifth through tenth most populated cities in America.

"Taxpayers may expect migrant healthcare costs to keep climbing along with the unabated surge in border crossings," the organization also notes.

Hospitals and taxpayers are on the hook for all of it.

Unchecked immigration is destroying border cities in more ways than one.
