Joe Biden isn’t fixing the border crisis. But, what’s more dangerous, he thinks he is.
Ask New York City Mayor Eric Adams and his administration if the border crisis is getting better. The Big Apple Mayor has coughed up $4.2 billion dollars to combat the influx of migrants.
“There needs to be an individual who is dedicated to do the decompression strategy for the federal government. Someone should be at these entry points: El Paso, Brownsville, Texas, and others, too, to organize a real decompression strategy across the entire country,” Adams said during a City Hall news conference Tuesday.
And while Adams’ Apple has lost $4.2 billion to the Biden Administration’s border crisis, the American taxpayers have taken a hit as well.
The cost of the crisis? $182 billion a year —that’s the cost of providing services to an estimated 15.5 million illegal migrants.
A bill of $1,156 per taxpayer according to new information from the Federation for American Immigration Reform.
“At the federal, state, and local levels, taxpayers shell out approximately $182 billion to cover the costs incurred from the presence of more than 15.5 million illegal aliens, and about 5.4 million citizen children of illegal aliens. That amounts to a cost burden of approximately $8,776 per illegal alien/citizen child,” said a new report from FAIR shared with Secrets.
“Illegal aliens only contribute roughly $32 billion in taxes at the state, local, and federal levels. This means that the net fiscal cost of illegal immigration to taxpayers totals approximately $150.7 billion,” it said.
“As America struggles to meet countless societal needs while facing the realities of our staggering $31 trillion national debt, the costs of providing for millions of people who have no legal right to be in the United States continues to grow at an alarming rate,” said Dan Stein, president of FAIR, in a statement.
“Not only is the Biden administration refusing to rein in illegal immigration or remove the people who are breaking our laws, they are promulgating policies that actually encourage more of it while offering new protections and benefits to those who settle here illegally. Likewise, a growing number of states and localities create their own costly magnets for illegal aliens by declaring themselves sanctuaries and offering new benefits and services. This has to stop,” he added.
Illegal migrants love Joe Biden because he won’t get tough —and we’re the ones paying for it.
