Earlier this month, I reported that illegals cost Ohio taxpayers nearly $900 million a year, and those figures were based on numbers from a couple years ago meaning the figure is higher now. In 2010, it was estimated that there were at least 110,000 illegals living in Ohio. Five years later that figure has surely increased as the Obama administration continues to welcome future Democratic illegal voters.
I also reported that illegals cost Maryland taxpayers $1.9 billion a year. Like Ohio, that figure is based upon information a couple years old which means they are quickly approaching the $2 billion mark. In 2010, it was estimated that there were 295,000 illegals living in Maryland. Five years later the number of illegals in Maryland should easily exceed 300,000.
Now it’s time to share with you the impact illegals have on North Carolina. In 2010, it was estimated that there were 410,000 illegals living in the Tar Heel state. That figure is most likely approaching 450,000 illegals by now. The cost burden for North Carolina taxpayers is $2 billion a year.
Over half of the $2 billion goes to providing a FREE education for the illegals. That encompasses grades K-12 along with the supplemental English language instructions they require. The rest of costs are for healthcare, public assistance (welfare, food stamps, etc.), general government services and law enforcement/judicial matters.
It is estimated that North Carolina collects around $288 million in taxes (city, county and state) a year. That still leaves the state with a deficit of over $1.7 billion a year. Consider the fact that the budget for the 2014 fiscal year was only $20.6 billion and according to the North Carolina Justice Center:
“Although the 2014 budget exceeds last year’s in overall dollars, it still falls short of what was needed to maintain current service levels in 4 of the 6 major budget areas, including the K-12 system.”
The cost of illegals totals nearly 10% of the total state budget. Imagine what North Carolina could do with the nearly $2 billion illegals are costing them. I suspect they could meet the educational needs of the state’s legal citizens.
So far I’ve looked at just three states that face a combined cost of over $4.8 billion a year to take care of Obama’s illegals. Liberals claim that illegals don’t have a negative impact on our nation and strongly disagree with them. In addition to the financial cost, illegals rob, beat, molest, rape and murder thousands of Americans every year. They take jobs away from America citizens who desperately want to provide for their families. They bring contagious diseases with them and provide a pathway by which potential terrorists are entering our nation.
Illegal immigration is a threat to America in many different ways and needs to be stopped and reversed YESTERDAY. Build a wall like the one in Yuma or Israel and station US troops along the border. Have our military protect America instead of other nations. We are under attack and we’re losing the war.
