Illegal Immigration Costs U.S. $113 Billion a Year, Study Finds
In case you were wondering why this is such a big issue.
I can’t understand the folks who claim that illegal immigration actually adds to our economy. There is no logical basis for this.
I have no issue with someone wanting to come to our great country, but it has to be done within the proper channels. If you are illegal, then there are others who will have to pay your way, either with healthcare, taxes or other basic necessities. This is not to say they do not work and work hard, but eventually, they take away from the economy they are trying to help. Only through proper channels can you become a functioning member of the society.
Unfortunately, the system we rely upon to help those who want to be in this country legally is also broken. We must fix this first so we can be humane to those who want to come here.
