Illegal Immigration roundup of facts

Portions of letter without cited resources need substantiation...

otherwise, decent attempt to provide informative opinion...

Illegal immigrants cost nation, create problems
By Jack Kruell, Guest commentary

Our republic/nation is being invaded, our national security is being compromised. The U.S. population is almost 300 million now. Since the announcement of the plan to grant amnesty to the estimated 7 million undocumented, primarily Mexican aliens illegally in the U.S., the numbers have swelled. Estimates of the number of illegals range from 11 million to 40 million. In some cases, these illegals run down our flag and run up foreign flag, and demand amnesty as they break our laws.

The cost of immigration to the American taxpayer in 1997, after subtracting taxes immigrants pay, was a net $70 billion a year. (Professor Donald Huddle, Rice University) Can you imagine what it must be in 2006? Taxes paid minus services used, for the average adult immigrant, is a negative number.

The estimated profit to U.S. corporations and businesses employing illegal aliens in 2005 was more than $2.36 trillion dollars.

The estimated cost to the average American taxpayer is $55,000 over a five-year span. You are personally giving $11,000 every year to illegal aliens. (http:/USABorderALERT.Com/)

More than 390,000 anchor babies born in the U.S. in 2005 were to parents who are illegal aliens; making those 380,000 babies automatically U.S. citizens. A huge 97.2 percent of all the incurred costs from those births are paid for by taxpayers.

More than 66 percent of all births in California are to illegal alien Mexicans on Med-Cal, whose births were paid by taxpayers.

Sixty-two percent of all undocumented immigrants in the U.S. are working for cash and not paying taxes; they are predominantly illegal aliens, working without a green card.

Less than 2 percent of illegal aliens in the U.S. are picking crops, but 41 percent are on welfare. Over 70 percent of the U.S. annual population growth (and over 90 percent of California, Florida and New York) results from immigration.

Twenty-nine percent (630,000) of convicted illegal aliens are in state and federal prisons, at a cost of $1.6 billion annually. The FBI reports over half of all gang members in Los Angeles are most likely illegal aliens from south of the border. More than 43 percent of all food stamps issued in the U.S. are to illegal aliens. Thirty-nine percent of California students in grades 1-12 are illegal aliens.

Evidence of policy: Texas border patrol agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean were prosecuted and convicted for a variety of offenses linked to their role in attempting to apprehend a Mexican drug smuggler.

They could go to prison, while the drug smuggler received immunity from prosecution for bringing 800 pounds of marijuana across the border.

While we must show compassion for many of those attempting to flee the country of their birth for better lives, we must realize the present immigration policy will play a huge bole in whatever horrible scenario is planned for all of us.

The evidence shows that politicians on both sides of the border have created this problem because they know the inevitable outcome of resultant cultural tensions is violence; our strings are being pulled, and both Mexicans and Americans are being used.

Why and how could it ever come to this? The elitist transnational conglomerates promote a borderless world, one they can take advantage of with impunity; while almost all others have roots and pride in country, state, city, towns and neighborhoods.

These are the same internationalists who promote open borders, legal or not, resulting in allowing our borders to be overwhelmed by illegal aliens in order to increase profits from cheap, uneducated labor.
