Check out these figures. There can be little doubt that as a nation, the U. S. has become insane.
So often, we get caught up in a debate over political semantics and end up ignoring the hard-shell realities of what we're talking about. According to the website http://www.immigrationcounters.com/ here are some of the realities that the Flake-Gutierrez Bill would airbrush out of the picture:
Number of Illegal Aliens in the Country - 20,807,645
(I frankly believe this figure is still way lowballed and the actual number of Third World illegals of all kinds is pushing 30 million.)
Money Wired to Mexico City since January, 2006 - $22,213,001,672.00
Cost of Social Security Services for Illegal Aliens since 1996 - $397,450,739,563.00
Number of Children of Illegal Aliens in Public Schools - 3,958,789
Cost of Illegal Aliens in K-12 Since 1996: - $13, 965,063,431.00
Number of Illegal Aliens Incarcerated -332,594
Cost of Incarcerations Since 2001 - $1,398,127,429.00
Number of Illegal Aliens Fugitives - 642,799
Skilled Jobs Taken by Illegal Aliens - 9,872,838
Figures can trick your eyes. Take particular note that items 2,3,5, and 7 reflect billions not millions of dollars -- and that item 3 exceeds one-third of a trillion dollars.
Can you imagine how much it will cost taxpayers if we triple the number of Illegals entering this country?
