Net costs of the illegal alien invasion

Heritage estimates it at $54 billion annually

https://www.heritage.org/immigration/report/the-fiscal-cost-unlawful-immigrants-...

FAIR estimates it at $116 billion annually

https://www.irli.org/single-post/2017/09/27/New-FAIR-Study-Illegal-Immigration-C...

Without a doubt, it costs the US plenty.  The benefits are reaped by scofflaw labor-intensive industries, with taxpayers picking up the costs.

Do not expect the left to honestly discuss this.

Seems pretty miniscule considering the rest of the deficit for American citizens is over a trillion.

Until we talk about the cost to build a wall and then it's too expensive.

Do not expect the ultra right to consider any evidence that contradicts their preconceived notions (those MAGA hats are apparently lined with lead).  But here's an article that I found thought provoking:

If Mexico pays for the wall, who cares what it costs.  Oh...  Wait...  They're not paying for it....  OK...

It ain't the expense (Mexico will pay for it, remember).  It's the reasons being given for it.  The main one of which, best I recall, is the drug trade.  Here's more for you to ignore:

I am for it, it will curb the number of illegals entering the country as additional measures to control entry.  Putting aside the hatred for Trump, Obama was building walls.  It is irrational to be so blinded by one's hatred for a President, that now it is wrong for us to control our borders simply because that is what he wants to do.   Roll Eyes

Maybe instead of deploying an ancient and easily defeated technology like wall-building, we could just stop paying all these people to come here...

Why not make fences and walls illegal since we seem to think they are not effective.
