As President Trump outlined his plan for protecting America’s borders, a reporter from CNN accosted the president over his numbers on illegal immigration. Not only were President Trump’s numbers on immigration accurate, but the reporter has a troubled history going back decades. One America’s Pearson Sharp explains.
The Cost of Illegal Immigration
As Democrats in Congress refuse to secure the US southern border, the cost of illegal immigration continues to mount. The United States spends over $268 billion dollars a year supporting illegal aliens. That money covers expenses such as healthcare, education, childcare, the justice system, and welfare—forcing US taxpayers to shell out $734 million dollars every single day. President Trump is requesting $5.7 billion dollars to build a border wall. Meanwhile, since January first, we’ve already spent far more than that paying for aliens who are here illegally. These numbers are based off estimates from the Center for Immigration Studies, Federation for Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, and the Department for Homeland Security. These are the most exact estimates from official Border Patrol reports, as well as crime stats and census reports. One America News will continue share these numbers daily to show just how much illegal immigration costs American citizens every second.
