The real cost of low-skill third-world migration:
Roughly one third of immigrant households are now headed by immigrants without a high school degree. My research, based on Census data and other government sources, shows these “low skill immigrant” households receive, on average, $30,160 per year in government benefits while paying $10,573 in taxes. Thus each such household costs the taxpayer $19,588 per year. Overall, the net cost to U.S. taxpayers is $89 billion per year. My report suggests that the country would benefit fiscally by having fewer low skill immigrants, who are net tax consumers, and more well educated immigrants who are net tax payers.
So my previous calculations underestimated the BENEFIT of repatriating invaders by a factor of five. Not only would repatriating every single illegal and low-skill legal immigrant be extremely affordable, from a financial perspective it is a complete no-brainer.
I note that even in the New York Times very loaded poll question, 33 percent favored deportation of illegals who have been here more than two years. And that 67 percent who favored some means of allowing them to stay drops to 26 percent when the actual amnesty plan is considered.
