The fiscal burden of illegal immigration

A record $135 billion a year is the cost for illegal immigration, average $8,075 per alien, $25,000 in NY, driven by free medical care, education and a huge law enforcement bill, according to the the most authoritative report on the issue yet. Pro-illegal immigration advocates claim that the aliens pay significant off-setting taxes back to federal, state and local treasuries, but the Federation for American Immigration Reform report tallied just $19 billion, making the final hit to taxpayers about $116 billion.

State and local governments are getting ravaged by the costs, at over $88 billion. The federal government, by comparison, is getting off easy at $45 billion in costs for illegals.
