Estimating The Costs of illegal immigration

It's hard to say exactly how much is spent on government services for illegal immigrants, but there are several estimates. When calculating these costs, most experts include the money spent on the U.S.-born children of illegal immigrants, who are U.S. citizens.

Here is a sampling of what studies have found:

EDUCATION: The U.S. Supreme Court ruled in 1982 that states must provide public education to a student regardless of legal status, a cost borne mostly by state and local governments. Children of illegal immigrants make up about 6.8 percent of kindergarten through 12th grade students in the United States. In California, it's at least 10 percent, according to the Pew Hispanic Center. The Washington, D.C.-based Center for Immigration Studies, which supports stricter immigration enforcement, says it's 13 percent and that the students cost Californians roughly $9 billion a year.

SCHOOL LUNCHES: A report by the center found that 40 percent of illegal immigrant households in California get food assistance, such as free school lunches, for their children.

HEALTH CARE: The center estimates that 62 percent of illegal immigrants don't have health insurance and that they make up one out of four uninsured people in California. Illegal immigrants are less of a burden on the health care system than other residents, however, because they have less access to services and tend to be younger and healthier. A study by the Rand Corp., a nonprofit research institution, found that illegal immigrants in 2000 made up 3.2 percent of theU.S. population but only accounted for 1.5 percent of medical spending in the country.

INCARCERATION: Studies have shown legal and illegal immigrants, when lumped together, are incarcerated less often than U.S.-born residents. But the federal government estimated that 12.4 percent of California's state prison population were illegal immigrants in 2004. Few, if any, were in prison for immigration violations. By comparison, illegal immigrants made up about 6.9 percent of the California population that year.

The Fresno County Sheriff's Office says about 10 percent of its inmates are illegal immigrants. A spokesman said most were there for crimes unrelated to immigration violations.

I am a legal immigrant. I came here legally. I paid all the fees, went through all the background checks, and all the other stuff to get here legally. I am personally offended that someone thinks illegal immigration is okay. It is a slap in the face to me and all the others like me. The only reason the immigration laws are not enforced is because politicians want the hispanic vote. They have even gone as far as to declare whole cities (like Seattle) as "sanctuary cities", where immigration and customs enforcement officers are forbidden to challenge someone whom they suspect of being illegal. Police, upon arresting a suspect in those cities, are no longer allowed to check, inquire or ask about the immigration status of their detainees. I therefore submit this; Being that these mayors have declared their cities as sanctuary cities, they are condoning violations of federal law, and I believe, by the letter of the law, that this constitutes a federal offense known as criminal solicitation. I therefore submit that any mayor who practices this blatant violation of federal law is a criminal, and should be arrested and treated as such. .
