Mass immigration costs govt. $296 billion a year

by Stephen Dinan - The Washington Times  |  published on September 21, 2016

Immigration is a massive drain on the government, with immigrants taking as much as $296 billion more in benefits than they pay in taxes, according to a new authoritative study by the National Academies of Science, Engineering and Medicine, which found the record level of newcomers is straining the country.

The report suggests that migrants depress wages for Americans, at least in the beginning, and particularly hit workers who have to compete for jobs.

And the new arrivals aren’t assimilating as well as past waves of immigrants, struggling to learn English and to raise their wages as quickly as previous migrants, the academy said in a final draft of the report, which The Washington Times obtained.

The reasons for the slowdown in assimilation aren’t clear, but one possibility — particularly when it comes to difficulties learning English — is the heavy presence of Mexican immigrants during the previous two decades, the academy said.

The report, due to be released Thursday afternoon, challenges many of the assumptions concerning how well the U.S. can handle the current levels of immigration, which run about 1 million a year, including both legal and illegal arrivals.

    That’s coming from the tax payers’ pockets-not the government’s pocket.

  • onefour

    The title should read MASS IMMIGRATION COSTS TAXPAYERS $296 BILLION since it is we that are footing the bill. This means this much money, and more, does not go to help US citizens. By the way it’s been proven that it is cheaper to take care of them in their own region of the world than to bring them here.

    If someone wants to come to our country they should follow the legal process. They should also learn the English language and seek to become part of American culture. If a person doesn’t want to let go of their native language and culture it would probably be better if they stayed there.

  • The Redhawk

    Just THINK what $ 296 Billiions could be used for NATIONAL POVERTY/JOB Creation and even for SCHOOL CHOICES to INSTRUCT YOUNG AMERICANS….IN REAL HISTORY, CIVICS, and the US Constituition along with the LIES of Socialism, Communism. and Fascism Anarchist FAILED ATTEMPTS!

    It is time for Americans to ask the hard questions why are certain leaders in Europe and in America insisting on bringing in tens of thousands, 75% men into our countries? What is their goal? Already Europe has rape epidemics, they have crime epidemics, they have had and will have more terror attacks. All attacks are perpetrated by these people, they are Muslims, they practice and believe in Radical Islam.

    The UK left the EU because of refugees and they are building a huge wall that is slippery. Slavic countries won’t accept them. Sweden just deported 60,000 and refused another 80,000 countries across Europe building huge border fences with razor wire. Most Americans haven’t seen the films of the horrors these savages are perpetrating. Wonder why? O owns the main media if Americans saw this no refugees would be here, the people of this country, knowing the truth would tear D.C. up. Making the BLM movement look like child’s play. We are facing people who want our annihilation and looks like certain leaders like O want it for us.

    Stalin did this, Others have done this only to keep their hands clean and out of the “Monster” category in history books these leaders importing the murderers. Our FBI, CIA, military all said they are here in America. ISIS. In fact our military said 30,000 here. My grandfather started his underground at this time of Stalin, he was a Consul, he did it to get intelligentsia and middle class out of these countries.

    Think on it people this is no longer in the Conspiracy Theory category.

    This has become the “Elephant” in the room. There was a young boy who found a dragon, he asked his father, who was hidden with his nose in the paper if he could have a pet, the father answered: “Nay pets George” not looking from his newspaper as George took the little dragon upstairs. As time went on the dragon grew too big for George to hide and had taken the roof off the house but his father still did not see the dragon, he was too busy with his paper. Until the dragon laughed and the fire burned the house down. A story my mother used to tell me.

    We have a dragon in the house. O said can I bring a few refugees into our home America, people sitting behind the TV, too busy to look at who they were or what O was doing said: “Sure we have big hearts.” Now they are ready to burn our house down and are sucking our tax dollars dry and what do we do?

    In comes Trump the only answer. Don’t let them burn our house down.

    Mass immigration cost the American taxpayers $296 billion a tear.

  • Patriot

    Every little job now require you to be bilingual. Americans who are not bilingual will lose jobs to someone bilingual. Business want bilingual employees to improve their business. This is especially true in states with large non-English speaking populations.

  • Pat Enery

    For once, an article that points out who comprises this criminal theft of our tax dollars. Not “Hispanics” or “Latinos”. Those are the “politically correct” words that our controlled Media use. They are simply Mexican illegals period. BTW, “11 million” was coined back in 2003-4 & has no basis in fact. It’s at least double that. They didn’t instantly stop coming after those years. We don’t even have an accurate census since they’re not coming out of the shadows to let us know who they are. The destruction of our cultural integrity by them is the real crime & it was deliberately set up in the 60’s for that purpose.

  • Mike Tanco

    Just what we need folks. More wasted money by our corrupt government.

  • DrBillLemoine

    I don’t know what sources the source used for data, but my personal contacts with immigrants is far more positive. I’m in contact with dentists, physicians, entertainers who make some good money that’s tapped for taxes–big money for governments. A few don’t make much money as shopkeepers or service people. Some work in the underground or cash economy where taxes are scarcely paid. But to me it’s a big boost for national progress, beneficial diversity, economic stability and cultural improvements. One immigrant’s 5 children all became physicians. One immigrant took in boarders at low cost. Another employs dozens of technicians giving them taxable income. None of them is on any kind of welfare, nor are family members. So in my limited anecdotal world, the article and its source are nonsense apparently written to disparage immigration, better immigrant policies, quicker assimilation of immigrants and in the worst light simply bigoted.

    • Born in the South and proud

      DrBill, there are exceptions in everything. What you are describing is the type of immigrant that was the norm 20 or more years ago. They came to this country looking for a better life for their self and their families. they worked hard, quickly learned the language and made big sacrifices for the future of their children. I knew or know quite a few of these types and they are a total different breed (for lack of a better word) that what wants in this country now. They wanted no part of welfare or government handouts.

      • DrBillLemoine

        Just to keep the record straight, the folks I deal with as friends and clients are in America from recent to long ago admissions. Some are now naturalized citizens, some not. All are what you describe as seeking a better life. I don’t know how you distinguish ‘a total different breed’ from these kinds of immigrants. All southern border crossers are seeking a better life, not counting drug and human traffickers. Many are escaping drug lords, rapists or murderers. Nobody would risk their lives in transit for ‘welfare or government handouts’ even if they somehow knew it was available as those are severe conditions, enough to drive anybody north from several identified central American countries.
        I can also understand how bigotry, isolation, rejection and anger by some thoughtless Americans could drive away friends, jobs and acculturation, driving a few families, skill-less women and children into welfare programs. But I also know there are stringent identification screenings for welfare acceptance, so who is skipping the detailed examination of illegals taking welfare benefits? Are laws inadequate; are clerks negligent; are documents falsified; are ‘friends’ lying for illegals? That’s part of the waste, fraud and abuse I favor congress and states looking into and eliminating–but they don’t, mostly Republican dominated. They won’t reform immigration laws and won’t even hold hearings to get at the heart of the problem in their know nothing do nothing current incumbencies. Anger instead of inspection, rejection in lieu of resolution are not answers.

    JUST PRAY THAT DONALD TRUMP IS ELECTED AND IS ABLE TO TAKE OVER AS OUR PRESIDENT.

    GOOGLE THE NEW CLINTON CHRONICLE 2015 AND YOU JUST MIGHT KNOW WHY.

    BELOW IS A GOOD REASON WHY I BELIEVE THAT A TAKEOVER TRY IS POSSIBLE. HOW CAN THE BIASED NEWS SAY OBAMA IS NOT A MUSLIM.

    President Obama: This is why you didn’t go to France to show solidarity against the Muslim terrorists:
    * It was you . . . who spoke these words at an Islamic dinner -“I am one of you.”
    * It was you . . . who on ABC News referenced -“My Muslim faith.”
    * It was you who . . . gave $100 million in U.S. taxpayer funds to re-build foreign mosques.
    * It was you who . . . wrote that in the event of a conflict- “I will stand with the Muslims.”
    * It was you who . . . assured the Egyptian Foreign Minister that – “I am a Muslim.”
    * It was you who . . . bowed in submission before the Saudi King.
    * It was you who . . . sat for 20 years in a Liberation Theology Church condemning Christianity and professing Marxism.
    * It was you who . . . exempted Muslims from penalties under Obamacare that the rest of us have to pay.
    * It was you who . . . purposefully omitted – “endowed by our Creator ” – from your recitation of The Declaration Of Independence.
    * It was you who . . . mocked the Bible and Jesus Christ’s Sermon on the Mount while repeatedly referring to the ‘HOLY’ Qur’an.
    * It was you who . . . raveled the Islamic world denigrating the United States of America.
    * It was you who . . . instantly threw the support of your administration behind the building of the Ground Zero Victory mosque overlooking the hallowed crater of the World Trade Center.
    * It was you who . . . refused to attend the National Prayer Breakfast, but hastened to host an Islamic prayer breakfast at the White House.
    * It was you who . . . ordered Georgetown Univ. and Notre Dame to shroud all vestiges of Jesus Christ BEFORE you would agree to go there to speak, but in contrast, you have NEVER requested the mosques you have visited to adjust their decor.
    * It was you who . . . appointed anti-Christian fanatics to your Czar Corps.
    * It was you who . . . appointed rabid Islamists to Homeland Security.
    * It was you who . . . said that NASA’s “foremost mission” was an outreach to Muslim communities.
    * It was you who . . . as an Illinois Senator was the ONLY individual who would speak in favor of infanticide.
    * It was you who . . . was the first President not to give a Christmas Greeting from the White House, and went so far as to hang photos of Chairman Mao on the WH tree.
    * It was you who . . . curtailed the military tribunals of all Islamic terrorists.
    * It was you who . . . refused to condemn the Ft. Hood killer as an Islamic terrorist.
    * It is you who . . . has refused to speak-out concerning the horrific executions of women throughout the Muslim culture, but yet, have submitted Arizona to the UN for investigation of hypothetical human-rights abuses.
    * It was you . . . who when queried in India refused to acknowledge the true extent of radical global Jihadists, and instead profusely praised Islam in a country that is 82% Hindu and the victim of numerous Islamic terrorists assaults.
    * It was you who . . . funneled $900 Million in U.S. taxpayer dollars to Hamas.
    * It was you who . . . ordered the USPS to honor the MUSLIM holiday with a new commemorative stamp.
    * It was you who . . . directed our UK Embassy to conduct outreach to help “empower” the British Muslim community.
    * It was you who . . . funded mandatory Arabic language and culture studies in Grammar schools across our country.
    * It is you who . . . follows the Muslim custom of not wearing any form of jewelry during Ramadan.
    * It is you who . . . departs for Hawaii over the Christmas season so as to avoid past criticism for NOT participating in seasonal WH religious events.
    * It was you who . . . was uncharacteristically quick to join the chorus of the Muslim Brotherhood to depose Egypt’s Hosni Mubarak, formerly America’s strongest ally in North Africa; but, remain muted in your non-response to the Brotherhood led slaughter of Egyptian Christians.
    * It was you who . . . appointed your chief adviser, Valerie Jarrett, an Iranian, who is a member of the Muslim Sisterhood, an off-shoot of the Muslim Brotherhood.
    * It was you who . . . said this country is not a Christian nation.
    * It was you who . . . said the Muslim call to worship is the most beautiful sound on earth.
    * IT WAS YOU WHO GAVE 150 BILLION PLUS TO IRAN.
    * IT WAS YOU WHO RANSOMED 4 PEOPLE FOR 400 MILLION/
    * ARE YOU, KERRY, HILLIARY & THE BIASED NEWS MEDIATO TRYING TO DESTROY OUR COUNTRY?

  • Wolfman

    Over Obuttholes 8 years that adds up to $2-2.5+/- Trillion….which is about 10% of the debt it took to accumulate over the first 200+ years of the Country. If the Illegals are so wonderful….how many millions have offered to pay the full amount back ????? ( chirp!chirp!chirp!) How many have their hand stuck out for freebies??? ( a loud cheer with Foreign Flags waving rises from the crowd).It is one thing to be a ‘Dreamer’ but it is another altogether to be a ‘Nightmare’. We may not be a 3rd world level country yet…but we are at least at a 2.6world level ….and going downhill….FAST!!!

  • Lindy

    For a country that is $20 trillion in debt, $296 billion is a lot to spend on people who aren’t citizens of the USA . Instead of cutting back on entitlements, we can cut back on supporting refugees.

  • DAWGNUTZ

    EVERYONE NEEDS TO READ AND UNDERSTAND THE FOLLOWING:

    ——————————————————————————–

    What is Hijrah?

    What is Hijrah? Obama is well educated in the Muslim religion since he studied it while living in Indonesia. He does not want this email to be spread all over the US because he wants us to be totally ignorant of what is really going on with the ISIL movement. This makes all the turmoil now make sense. Sad, and doesn’t bode well for us.
    What is a Hijrah? Large scale mass migrations become invasions and this actually appears to be a hijrah as he describes it ………this is NOT going to end well. It appears the policies of the liberal socialist leaders in Europe and the US do not want to keep these lands from being overrun. Why???I couldn’t figure out why other Arab countries (Saudi Arabia, UAE, Oman, etc.) weren’t taking in refugees, so I started digging.

    Hijrah is jihad by emigration. It means moving to a new land in order to bring Islam there and is considered in Islam to be a holy and revered action. “And whoever emigrates for the cause of Allah will find on the earth many locations and abundance, and whoever leaves his home as an emigrant to Allah and His Messenger and then death overtakes him, his reward has already become incumbent upon Allah.” (4:100) So if a Muslim dies in the process, that’s essentially the same as being a suicide bomber, his reward is automatic. This explains the great eagerness to undertake such a perilous journey.

    Muhammad and his followers emigrated from Mecca to Yathrib/Medina in 622 CE. It was there that he became a military leader & still uneducated. This is where all the commands to commit violence against unbelievers originate from. It’s important to note that the Islamic calendar marks this as the beginning of Islam. This current massive hijrah was announced last January although few paid the announcement much attention. A supporter (or member) of ISIS uploaded a document in Arabic that urged Muslims to get to Libya for its proximity to southern Europe and for the important tactical value of its illegal immigration circuits to facilitate infiltration of European cities (“It has a long coast and looks upon the southern Crusader states, which can be reached with ease by even a rudimentary boat”).

    In February, transcripts of telephone intercepts published in Italy said ISIS was threatening to send 500,000 migrants as a “psychological weapon” against Europe . The Italian Minister for the Interior, Angelino Alfano, said at the time, “If the militias of the Caliphate advance faster than the decisions of the international community how can we put out the fire in Libya and stem the migration flows? We are at risk of an exodus without precedent. Also in February, the Turkish intelligence service warned police that up to 3,000 trained jihadists were seeking to cross into Turkey from Syria and Iraq and then travel through Bulgaria and Hungary into western Europe. From Syria , to Hungary & then into the rest of Europe.Sound familiar?

    In May, a Libyan government adviser warned that Islamic State operatives were being” smuggled to Europe in migrant boats.” ISIS is profiting from the human trafficking trade, forcing boat owners to hand over their profits or be killed. Some ISIS operatives are already sheltered in safe houses in the south of the Europe . Groups of men, 17 to 25, from Palestine and Syria, cross into Bulgaria and from there move into the rest of the EU. A former Al Qaeda double agent told the BBC that he knew of two Egyptian brothers who reached Italy from Libya, accompanied by men who were “deeply religious and fluent in Italian and French.” Go watch the videos of those “refugees” again. How many of the “refugees” are 17-25 year old men? Of military age? If that doesn’t convince you, we already know terrorists are coming through with the waves of refugees: a week ago five men were arrested attempting to cross the Bulgarian-Macedonian border with Islamic State propaganda, specific Jihadists prayers, and decapitation videos on their phones. They had been posing as refugees. UK Independence Party leader Nigel Farage warned: “I fear we face a direct threat to our civilization if we allow large numbers of people from that war torn region into Europe.”

    Other Muslim countries are not “taking in” these “refugees” because this is a hijrah into Europe . This is no humanitarian crisis. It is an invasion. Its goal is to transform Europe: over tax its economies, tear down its wealthiest nations, re-draw the demographics and, of course, the culture. And our government wants to start letting them into our Country? Are we all Forest Gumps? Is this worth sending on?

Clinton has 43 percent support among likely voters, while Trump is at 37 percent, the NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll found. Third-party candidates combine for 12 percent support. Trump hope to build an electric wall to kill Latino kids trying to scale the wall has Americans think twice about Trump’s brains. His brains have been damaged by having three wives at the Tower. Trump kids are also scaring voters. His sons are so ugly. At least his daughters are good looking; but they have friends in Russian. That scares American people. We better vote for Hillary on November 8 at 9 am I will be sober at that time.

          Money, fraud, dishonesty, lies, corruption and more to describe the Clintons.
          What about Hillary? Why did she stay married to an unfaithful liar as her so-called husband Bill.

            Yes, I am a Christian. But, you didn’t read my post above carefully.
            IF you vote for Hillary and being a Christian yourself, I think you will be responsible for the death of America.
            So, go ahead and vote for a Saul Alinsky communist corrupted, liar witch. If you are a true American who love your country you won’t vote for anyone who could destroy this Great America.
            We have to be together to fight the death of the most powerful and great country in the world.

    This $296 billion figure is for social services and does not include the heavy price that we pay for all the crimes that immigrants commit. Over one third of our prison population is comprised of immigrants. And how do you put a price on the lives of our citizens that have been killed and murdered by immigrants,

      I have really bad news for you: 100% of America’s population is either an immigrant or the decedent of an immigrant. The connection between immigrants and crime is a myth. The last thing an illegal wants to happen is to be arrested. Newcomers to the U.S. are less likely than the native population to commit violent crimes or be incarcerated.

      Immigrants, like Blacks have highee icarceration rates. It is a function of poverty. They must depend upon over-worked public defenders.

    strained budget. Most of the Middle Eastern refugees go on welfare and
    stay there lifelong. We offer illegals so many benefits all to the
    delight of the Democrats who consider them their new recruits for
    voting Dem. A high price to pay. If Hillary gets in and ups the
    refugee numbers 500 fold, and we continue to turn the other way
    and offer freebies to those who come illegally across our southern
    border in 20 years even the Dems will be surprised when they out vote
    Americans and get rid of the Constitution in favor of what they see as
    their way of life. We are throwing away our fine culture, re-writting
    our history, letting our schools fail and all for what ? We can help
    10 refugees in a safe place close to their home country for the
    price we pay to bring one over here. We are idiots !

      Our lives and our safety as Obama jets off to another costly vacation. Planet of the apes Mooshell goes another destination on her own tax payer funded jet. Deplorables.

      Exactly!

    Compared to what the immigrants add to our economy, $300 billion is nothing. We need the immigrants more than they need us.

      Where is your brain? Most illegal’s work for cash and still collect welfare benefits. Not to mention the crime they cause. 25% of the prisoners in our prisons across America are illegal aliens.

      A broke nation cannot feed the World…
      Nor look after law breaking Illegals.

      Sure. Wanna buy a bridge?

      Now please tell me why we need them……. We don’t need them because…. won’t work instead draw welfare, won’t learn English, won’t accept the culture and become part of the culture, want to change this country to match the crap location they left from. So hell no we don’t need or want them.

      I love how low information attack you for stating a truth. We bring in a million legal immigrants a year. They have to have a support system before they are let in, they take a year and a half filling out paperwork just to get here, They must have sponsors that agree to be financially responsible for them. This I believe these numbers make no scenes. a million people costing the country costing 300 billion dollars works out to $300,000 per person.
