A recent study from the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR)

shows the total cost of illegal immigration to federal, state and local taxpayers for the nation's approximate 12.5 million illegal immigrants has increased to $116 billion annually. 

 

The expenditures attributable to illegal immigrants is staggering, crippling and unsustainable. The latest data also shows the costs to taxpayers in enforcement and social services continues to rise — even when offset by the taxes which some of those immigrants pay. 

 

The huge surge of legal and illegal immigrants into the U.S. is enough to double the population of Philadelphia every single year.  These are shocking statistics.  Yet the American people are expected to remain silent about this or else be unilaterally deemed as racist.  But is it really a racial question?  Or is it a fiscal one?
