What if 20 million illegal aliens vacated America?

Posted on February 6, 2008. Filed under: Illegal Immigration, Politics |

This is for those who don’t think ILLEGAL immigration is that big a problem or who think that we should let illegals in because it’s the loving thing to do. It’s killing our country. Is that the loving thing to do for our own people?  Thanks to Kerry for sending this to me.

Tina Griego, journalist for the Denver Rocky Mountain News wrote a column titled, ‘Mexican Visitor’s Lament’ — 10/25/07.

She interviewed Mexican journalist Evangelina Hernandez while visiting Denver last week. Hernandez said, ‘They (illegal aliens) pay rent, buy groceries, buy clothes…What Happens to your country’s economy if 20 million people go away?’ That’s a good question – it deserves an answer. Over 80 percent of Americans demand secured borders and illegal migration stopped. But what would happen if all 20 million or more vacated America?

The answers may surprise you!

In California, if 3.5 million illegal aliens moved back to Mexico, it would leave an extra $10.2 billion to spend on overloaded school systems, bankrupt hospitals and overrun prisons. It would leave highways cleaner, safer and less congested. Everyone could understand one another as English became the dominant language again.

In Colorado, 500,000 illegal migrants, plus their 300,000 kids and grand-kids – would move back ‘home’, mostly to Mexico. That would save Coloradans an estimated $2 billion (other experts say $7 billion) annually in taxes that pay for schooling, medical, social-services and incarceration costs. It means 12,000 gang members would vanish out of Denver alone.

Colorado would save more than $20 million in prison costs, and the terror that those 7,300 alien criminals set upon local citizens. Denver Officer Don Young and hundreds of Colorado victims would not have suffered death, accidents, rapes and other crimes by illegals.

Denver Public Schools would not suffer a 67 percent drop-out/flunk-out rate because of thousands of illegal alien students speaking 41 different languages. At least 200,000 vehicles would vanish from our gridlocked cities in Colorado.

Denver’s four percent unemployment rate would vanish as our working poor would gain jobs at a living wage.

In Florida, 1.5 million illegals would return the Sunshine State back to America, the rule of law, and English.

In Chicago, Illinois, 2.1 million illegals would free up hospitals, schools, prisons and highways for a safer, cleaner and more crime-free experience.

If 20 million illegal aliens returned ‘home’ —

If 20 million illegal aliens returned ‘home’, the U.S. Economy would return to the rule of law. Employers would hire legal American citizens at a living wage. Everyone would pay their fair share of taxes because they wouldn’t be working off the books. That would result in an additional $401 Billion in IRS income taxes collected annually, and an equal amount for local, state and city coffers.

No more push ‘1’ for Spanish or ‘2’ for English. No more confusion in American schools that now must contend with over 100 languages that degrade the educational system for American kids. Our overcrowded schools would lose more than two million illegal alien kids at a cost of billions in ESL and free breakfasts and lunches.

We would lose 500,000 illegal criminal alien inmates at a cost of more than $1.6 billion annually. That includes 15,000 MS-13 gang members who distribute $130 billion in drugs annually would vacate our country.

In cities like L.A., 20,000 members of the ’18th Street Gang’ would vanish from our nation. No more Mexican forgery gangs for ID theft from Americans! No more foreign rapists and child molesters!

Losing more than 20 million people would clear up our crowded highways and gridlock. Cleaner air and less drinking and driving American deaths by illegal aliens!

America’s economy is drained. Taxpayers are harmed. Employers get rich. Over $80 billion annually wouldn’t return to the aliens’ home countries by cash transfers. Illegal migrants earned half that money untaxed, which further drains America’s economy – which currently suffers an $8.7 trillion debt.

At least 400,000 anchor babies would not be born in our country, costing us $109 billion per year per cycle. At least 86 hospitals in California, Georgia and Florida would still be operating instead of being bankrupt out of existence because illegals pay nothing via the EMTOLA Act.

Americans wouldn’t suffer thousands of TB and hepatitis cases rampant in our country-brought in by illegals unscreened at our borders.

Our cities would see 20 million less people driving, polluting and grid locking our cities. It would also put the ‘progressives’ on the horns of a dilemma; illegal aliens and their families cause 11 percent of our greenhouse gases.

Over one million of Mexico’s poorest citizens now live inside and along our border from Brownsville, Texas to San Diego, California in what the New York Times called, ‘colonias’ or new neighborhoods. Trouble is, those living areas resemble Bombay and Calcutta where grinding poverty, filth, diseases, drugs, crimes, no sanitation and worse. They live without sewage, clean water, streets, electricity, roads or any kind of sanitation. The New York Times reported them to be America’s new ‘Third World’ inside our own country. Within 20 years, at their current growth rate, they expect 20 million residents of those colonias. (I’ve seen them personally in Texas and Arizona; it’s sickening beyond anything you can imagine.) By enforcing our laws, we could repatriate them back to Mexico.

We should invite 20 million aliens to go home, fix their own countries and/or make a better life in Mexico. We already invite a million people into our country legally more than all other countries combined annually. We cannot and must not allow anarchy at our borders, more anarchy within our borders and growing lawlessness at every level in our nation. It’s time to stand up for our country, our culture, our civilization and our way of life.

Interesting Statistics. Here are 14 reasons illegal aliens should vacate America, and I hope they are forwarded over and over again until they are read so many times that the reader gets sick of reading them:

1. $11 billion to $22 billion dollars are spent each year on welfare to illegal aliens. http://tinyurl.com/zob77

2. $2.2 billion dollars are spent each year on food assistance programs such as food stamps, WIC, and free school lunches for illegal aliens. http://www.cis.org/articles/2004/fiscalexec.html

3. $2.5 billion dollars are spent each year on Medicaid for illegal aliens. http://www.cis.org/articles/2004/fiscalexec.html

4. $12 billion dollars are spent each year on primary and secondary school education for children here illegally and they cannot speak a word of English! http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/0604/01/ldt.01.html

5. $17 billion dollars are spent each year for education for the American-born children of illegal aliens, known as anchor babies.

6. $3 Million Dollars PER DAY is spent to incarcerate illegal aliens. http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/0604/01/ldt.01.html

7. 30% percent of all federal prison inmates are illegal aliens. http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/0604/01/ldt.01.html

8. $90 billion dollars are spent each year on illegal aliens for welfare & social services by the American taxpayers.

9. $200 billion dollars per year in suppressed American wages are caused by the illegal aliens.

10. The illegal aliens in the United States have a crime rate that’s two and a half times that of white non-illegal aliens. In particular, their children, are going to make a huge additional crime problem in the US. http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/0606/12/ldt.01.html

11. During the year 2005, there were 4 to 10 MILLION illegal aliens that crossed our southern border with as many as 19,500 illegal aliens from terrorist countries. Millions of pounds of drugs, cocaine, meth, heroine, and marijuana crossed into the U.S. from the southern border. http://tinyurl.com/t9sht

12. The National Policy Institute, estimates that the total cost of mass deportation would be between $206 and $230 billion, or an average cost of between $41 and $46 billion annually over a five year period. http://www.nationalpolicyinstitute.org/publications.php?b=deportation

13. In 2006, illegal aliens sent home $45 BILLION in remittances back to their countries of origin. http://www.rense.com/general75/niht.htm

14. The dark side of illegal immigration: Nearly one million sex crimes are committed by illegal immigrants in the United States!’

The total cost is a whopping $338.3 BILLION DOLLARS A YEAR!!!

Wow, eye opening article. But what’s with the upset over having multiple language choices, namely spanish? For California and the greater Southwest, for one, I resent that the U.S. promised to make Spanish an official language when we defeated Mexico and then never followed thorugh on our promise. Mexcians have occupied this region longer than the U.S. and we want to get rid of the Spanish option choice on 800 #s or in print??? That’s outragous and laden with racist sentiment if you ask me. Sure an influx in illegal immigration may contribute to the need to be able to communicate in multiple languages, but I think that’s bound to happen anyway as a result of legal immigration alone. To the author of this article and those sharing such strong opinions, yes be fair on the important issues, but also be aware of comments contributing to racist attitudes and recognize them, will you? And another thing, how many U.S. citizens contribute to these same problems every year? I recognize the merritt in the argument that with illegal immigrants deported, we would be able to focus these funds on U.S. citizens, but this article sounds like it’s placing a huge piece of blame on illegal immigrants when the problems of our own citizens are a huge contributor. There are plenty of illegal immigrants without these problems. And there are also many illegal immigrants that should be able to come as refugee status, but can’t because they don’t have time to wait on the impacted system or they might die. What about them? Shouldn’t we do something to help the desperate, even temporarily? Many illegal immigrants don’t have homes to go back to. I know we can’t save everyone, but I’d like to talk about what we CAN do. How much can we help? Should we help at all? It’s hard for me to consider what’s right because for me, a person in need is a person in need no matter what, but it also makes sense that we have a primary responsibility to our own citizens.

Thanks for the comment,Jessalynn. I can only speak for myself about the language thing, but it has been shown in other countries that one language unites the country better. In countries where there is more than one main language, the people end up being divided and exist as 2 peoples rather than one. I really want our country to be united and to feel like we are one team and one family. But the more the language barrier exists, the less likely that is to happen. As a social worker, I can attest to how hard it makes it for people to speak many different languages, and I’m not talking about just our clients. I’m talking about my co-workers. Now, don’t get me wrong. We have very nice people at my building, and I get along with all of them. But we have about 4 different languages spoken at our building – English, Spanish, Russian, and Hmong – and they are fairly large groups of each one. The problem is that it naturally divides people into 4 groups. Instead of feeling like one big group, people divide according to their language. That’s not to say that all of us don’t talk to each other, but the majority of the time, people naturally stay with whoever they identify with. There is already one country – I can’t remember which one, so I’ll have to look back at my articles – who has now divided into two countries based on the language barrier.
As far as immigrants learning our language, most legal immigrants will admit that it helps them tremendously to learn English, and it gives them better opportunities and makes them feel more connected to the community.
I understand the desire to want to help as many as we can. I also have that desire. I think we both want the same thing, we probably just don’t agree on the best route to get there. I don’t believe the answer is to let illegals into our country. Why can’t the US help Mexico be better so that people don’t want to leave? I agree that their country is in a mess, but let’s help them clean up that mess instead of allowing them to bring their mess here and kill our economy along with theirs. Our current system is hurting their people AND ours.

To Jessalynn regarding your response to the Feb 6 post. Bridget replied with most everything that I would have said, but I might also include that no one is saying that people shouldn’t be allowed to speak their native language. We, as a country should just not have to offer endless accommodations. We simply shouldn’t. How long before other growing minority immigrant groups insist upon the same thing? Where else in the world do countries offer so much in the way of services and tolerance to non native speaking visitors? It is only respectful to the country from which one benefits, and now lives, to learn their language. (I can only guess, but I would imagine that you, as I, would attempt to do so if we had to relocate.) I don’t care how poor anyone is, they can do their best to learn the language. They have access to libraries, can ask for help from churches, there are free classes in most communities, they can continually watch and learn. (Children learn very quickly even without formal teaching because they WANT to be a part of what’s going on. The parents could learn from their kids!) Many (and because our country is contributing to the notion) come with a sense of entitlement; that they have “rights” to these special considerations. (The immigrants of old were more than happy to learn our language (they expected to need to)and grateful for the opportunities America could allow them.

I totally agree with you that people in need should be helped. But it can’t always and probably mostly shouldn’t come from a national government level. So much could be and is done in local communities when there is a need. People are generally and basically good. However it may be less likely to happen in some communities where it is viewed that foreign people who only want to speak their native language and won’t try to learn the language of the country that they have CHOSEN to come to, do not WANT to be a part of that community. That they have “rights” and we can’t discriminate against them. (Personally, I think asking people to be law-abiding is not discriminating, but people have “learned” to use that defense when ANYTHING is asked or expected of them.) And then, as Americans, many of whom are seriously struggling, it is hard to want to help those who get more consideration and benefits than they do as legal citizens. (Since they are already helping with more and more of their limited resources going to the gov’t in taxes to supply these programs. Yes, of course a big part of the crime, etc comes from our own citizens. But we HAVE to deal with them. The point is that we have more burden and less money going where it could do more actual good by being forced to deal with another country’s responsibility. A burden that we SHOULDN’T have to bear. Bridget is right, that we eventually (and our economy is starting to indicate this), will be burdened to the point that we will no longer have the resources to help anyone in the world. America is becoming very vunerable. Our dollar has less and less value and this eventually won’t be the country of the “American Dream” because we are getting closer and closer to socialism. You can’t have dreams and better yourself in socialistic governments. But we are in essence becoming one because everyone EXPECTS to be taken care of…and the governemnt has to have more and more of our money to do this for the EVER-GROWING population…legal or otherwise. And many of our politicians in high positions have succummed to the surface benefits of dishonesty and power. They would be happy to have a socialist governemnt because THEY will be some of the few elite.

I work as a ‘Corrections’ Officer in a men’s prison in an upper north central state – I deal with inmates every [work] day. “The penal system is woefully overburdened in debt because of the criminal [illegal] alien inmates housed at tax-payer expense!” We, who must ‘take care’ of the scum, are drowning…!

“In MY world – if I were KING, the illegal alien inmates/convicts would ALL be ‘put down’! No more [tax-payer’s] $3 million dollars/day to feed, cloth and house the undeserving vermin. End of problem.
For the record: “I would gladly pay a portion of my OWN money, to purchase the ammo to get the job done.”

U.S. Armed Forces, retired

I think that the most overlooked aspect of this debate is why it’s still happening — namely, because the people with the money want it to. Illegal immigration, while contributing to certain problems in our economy, also keeps costs low, because it’s cheaper-than-legal labor. It also U.S. companies to compete with countries like China and India and their low wages, at least to a degree. If we kicked out all of the illegals, prices on everything from fruits and vegetables to meat to janitorial services and hotel maintenance would rise dramatically. We’d import even more agricultural products because it would be cheaper. Big companies (and politicians) don’t want this to happen, so they don’t really try to stop the illegals. You can fault illegals for breaking the law and so forth, but when the average income in Mexico is $2,000 a year and there’s not an effective monitoring/deportation system in place, you can see why they are motivated to come here.

we would be cutting our own grass
