The Third World invasion costs American taxpayers at least $113 billion every year, a figure which will pay for the expected $20 to $25 billion cost of building a wall along the U.S.–Mexican border four times over every year—a fact which leftist hysteria over the proposal completely ignores.

According to a 2013 report by the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), the annual cost of illegal immigration amounts to $29 billion at the federal level alone every year—a figure which by itself would cover the cost of building a new wall along the entire border every year.

At state and local level, the cost of illegal immigration is $84 billion per year, the FAIR report revealed.

The study also estimated tax collections from illegal alien workers... Those receipts do not come close to the level of expenditures...

Furthermore, the FAIR report said, the annual outlay that illegal aliens cost U.S. taxpayers is an average amount per native-headed household of $1,117...

Education for the children of illegal aliens constitutes the single largest cost to taxpayers, at an annual price tag of nearly $52 billion...

At the federal level, about one-third of outlays are matched by tax collections from illegal aliens. At the state and local level, an average of less than 5 percent of the public costs associated with illegal immigration is recouped through taxes collected from illegal aliens...

Another series of reports on the cost of illegal immigrants on specific states found that illegal immigrants cost California taxpayers $25.3 billion per year, while illegal immigration costs Texas taxpayers about $12.1 billion annually. Other states listed include North Carolina ($2 billion per year) and Florida ( $3.8 billion).

A Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) report revealed that 62 percent of households headed by illegal immigrants use some form of cash or non-cash welfare programs, like food stamps or housing assistance—all paid for by the U.S. taxpayer...

In 2016, the National Academy of Sciences (part of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, along with the National Academy of Engineering), issued a highly instructive report on the true cost of Third World immigration into America, titled "The Economic and Fiscal Consequences of Immigration."

... and concluded that current immigration policy costs taxpayers up to $300 billion a year...

It is thus clear that the costs of building a wall and halting the Third World invasion of America is not only financially viable, but in fact a necessity for economic wellbeing...

How Illegal Aliens Can Pay for the Wall, David North, Center for Immigration Studies, January 30, 2016.

... Here's a listing of some of these illegals-pay-for-the-wall ideas, with references to more detailed discussions of these ideas.

  • Put a 2 percent fee on all outgoing remittances; the rate is low enough to discourage alternative ways of sending money to the homelands, and the paper created will give IRS good leads for collecting unpaid income taxes. (See here and here.)
     
  • Demand a genuine Social Security number tied to the beneficiary before any income tax refunds are made.
     
  • Terminate the current practice of allowing Additional Child Tax Credit benefits to go to children (often of illegals) who lack Social Security numbers.
     
  • Eliminate the current and hard-to-believe food stamps ruling that lets some families with illegal alien wage earners get benefits when all-citizen families of the same size and at the same income are denied benefits.

In addition, and this would cover all the people involved, including legal residents of this country and legal residents of Mexico, start collecting a small cover charge for those crossing into the United States; 25 cents for a pedestrian, $1 for a car, and $5 for a bus.

None of these proposals would depress the Mexican economy, all would help fund the wall, and most would have absolutely no impact on the vast majority of American taxpayers, and all (but the crossing fees) would encourage illegal aliens to return home.
