That simple common sense approach of first helping your own, before you can help others, seems to have disappeared within this administrations new political progressive agenda of helping “everyone else” except your own!

In that providing welfare benefits to illegal immigrant families is extremely costly, about $750,000 per family. Obviously those funds could be used to help our own kids and would actually pay for 125 inner city black youths acquire Pell Grants to college.

Those funds could also be used to pay back a nearly bankrupt Social Security and Medicare program, and perhaps provide additional benefits to those that have served our nation, America’s vets.

And according to the data collected by Heritage scholar Robert Rector in 2010, Americans would recoup nearly ¾ of a million dollars, or approximately $719, 350, for every  illegal migrant household that leaves the United States under Trump’s plan.

Also the total contributions (mainly taxes) generated by illegal aliens, compared to the overall welfare benefits which includes  education, subsidized housing, food stamps, tax credits, medical expenses, which costs  the American taxpayer a total of $113 billion a year, compared to about $13 billion a year generated through taxes , resulting in a net loss to taxpayers of about $100 billion.

Those extra dollars could be used for a variety of domestic projects such as funding state and local governments in the hiring of an additional 1.6 million more police officers, or perhaps allocating more resources and benefits to returning soldiers and veterans,

Those additional funds could also be used to employ additional teachers within those overcrowded schools.

However, when people hear for the first time what it costs the American taxpayer to house illegal aliens, they find it difficult to believe, says Heritage’s Robert Rector:

“The debate about the fiscal consequences of unlawful and low-skill immigration is hampered by a number of misconceptions. Few lawmakers really understand the current size of government and the scope of redistribution… Unlawful immigrants, on average, are always tax consumers; they never once generate a ‘fiscal surplus’ that can be used to pay for government benefits elsewhere in society.”
