No one is denying that immigration and the melding of minds and cultures have made America great. The problem is the distortion of adding illegal immigration to the mix with no assimilation. This is usually done to get votes as the left feels that these illegals will be so happy they are in America they will vote accordingly. In addition phony legal immigration is just a damaging.
What is the true cost of Illegal Immigration:
It’s easy to dismiss individual programs that benefit non-citizens until they’re put together
and this picture emerges. Often these programs are buried within other programs making them difficult to find.
A Real Eye Opener : WHY is the USA BANKRUPT?
You think the war in Iraq was costing us too much? Read this:
We have been hammered with the propaganda that it was the Iraq war and the war on terror that is bankrupting us.
I now find that to be RIDICULOUS..

In the true style of Agenda 21, the true reason for illegal and open borders are two fold.
1. Lenin: A person without roots can easily be led.
2. Cloward and Piven: Overload the system and the economy will collapse.
America is a melting pot whereby all legal immigrants learn English, the Constitution, Bill of Rights and Declaration of Independence. Once in America, these legal immigrants are free and are treated the same as any natural born American citizen. They assimilate into American society and together create a stronger American.
Multi-culturalism DOES NOT WORK. It is currently being tried in Europe and the German Chancellor Angela Merkel, French President Nicholas Sarkozy and English Prime Minister David Cameron have all been on the record to say that it does not work. Lenin was right. when people do not have a country they have no vested interest in the well being of that country. Sarkozy Joins Cameron, Merkel, Condemns Multiculturalism
American are prompted that immigrants are needed to do jobs that Americans won’t do. Using that logic it was acceptable to use the illegal immigrant labor. The cost to that has become overpowering as States are beginning to realize that.
Education is one of the biggest costs to taxpayers. The sad thing is that there is a limited number of incoming students who can be admitted to some of our universities. If an illegal wins admittance and the limit is maxed out, then a legal who applies is denied admittance.
Medical care and jobs have a similar fate.
Here is and example of the actual cost of free lunch.
900 teachers just got laid off from the Los Angeles Unified School District . They are $650,000 over their annual budget. The following English teacher helps to explain one area that looms large over California’s educational crisis.

As you listen to the news about the student protests over illegal immigration, there are some things that you should be aware of. I am in charge of the English-as-a-second-language department at a large southern California high school which is designated a Title 1 school, meaning that its students are average/lower socioeconomic and income levels. Most of the schools you are hearing about, South Gate High, Bell Gardens, Huntington Park, etc., where these students are protesting, are also Title 1 schools. Title 1 schools are on the free breakfast and free lunch program. When I say free breakfast, I’m not talking a glass of milk and roll — but a full breakfast and cereal bar with fruits and juices that would make a Marriott proud. The waste of this food is monumental with trays and trays of it being dumped in the trash uneaten. OUR TAX DOLLARS AT WORK.
I estimate that well over 50% of these students are obese or at the least, moderately overweight. About 75% or more DO have cell phones. The school also provides daycare centers for the unwed teenage pregnant girls (some as young as 13) so they can attend class without the inconvenience of having to arrange for babysitters or having family watch their kids. OUR TAX DOLLARS AT WORK.
I was ordered to spend $700,000 on my department or risk losing funding for the upcoming year even though there was little need for anything; my budget was already substantial. I ended up buying new computers for the computer learning center, half of which, one month later, had been carved with graffiti by the appreciative students who obviously feel humbled and grateful to have a free education in America. OUR TAX DOLLARS AT WORK.
I have had to intervene several times for young and substitute teachers whose classes consist of many illegal immigrant students here in the country less than 3 months who raised so much hell with the female teachers, calling them Putas (whores ), and throwing things, that the teachers were in tears. Free medical, free education, free food, free daycare, etc, etc, etc. Is it any wonder they feel entitled not only to be in this country but to demand rights, privileges and entitlements? To those who want to point out how much these illegal immigrants contribute to our society because they LIKE their gardener and housekeeper and they like to pay less for tomatoes, should spend some time in the real world of illegal immigration and see the TRUE costs; higher insurance, medical facilities closing, higher medical costs, more crime, lower standards of education in our schools, overcrowding, new diseases etc., etc, etc. For me, I’ll pay more for tomatoes.
Americans, we need to wake up. The guest worker program will be a disaster because we won’t have the guts to enforce it. Does anyone in their right mind really think they will voluntarily leave and return? It does, however, have everything to do with culture. This third-world culture does not value education, accepts children getting pregnant and dropping out of school by 15, and refuses to assimilate into an American culture that has become so weak and worried about political correctness that we don’t have the will to do anything about it. So we pay for it.
If this makes your blood boil, as it did mine, forward this to everyone you know including your Congressmen and Senators. CHEAP LABOR? Isn’t that what the whole immigration issue is about? Business doesn’t want to pay a decent wage. Consumers don’t want expensive produce. Government will tell you Americans don’t want the jobs. But the bottom line is cheap labor. The phrase “cheap labor” is a myth, a farce, and a lie. There is no such thing as “cheap labor.”
Take for example, an illegal alien with a wife and five children. He takes a job for $5.00 or 6.00/hour. At that wage with six dependents, he pays no income tax but yet at the end of the year, if he files an Income Tax Return, he gets an “earned income credit” of up to $3,200 free. He qualifies for Section 8 housing and subsidized rent. He qualifies for food stamps. He qualifies for free (no deductible, no co-pay) health care. His children get free breakfasts and lunches at school. He requires bilingual teachers and books. He qualifies for relief from high energy bills. If they are or become, aged, blind or disabled, they qualify for SSI. Once qualified for SSI, they can qualify for Medicare. All of this is at (our) taxpayer’s expense. He doesn’t worry about car insurance, life insurance, or homeowners insurance. Taxpayers provide Spanish language signs, bulletins and printed material. He and his family receive the equivalent of $20.00 to $30.00/hour in benefits. Working Americans are lucky to have $5.00 or $6.00/hour left after paying their bills AND his. The American taxpayers also pay for increased crime, graffiti and trash clean-up. YOUR TAX DOLLARS AT WORK.
What is a Matricula Consular card?
Matricula Consular cards are identification cards issued by the Mexican government to mainly illegal immigrants living in the United States .
Currently, more than 350 financial institutions accept Matricula Consular cards as proof of identification thereby allowing thousands of illegal immigrants to have access to mainstream U.S. financial services. Read the article
