1) Eighty percent of Americans demand secure borders and that illegal immigration be stopped.
2) In California, if the 3.5 million illegals were returned to Mexico, a savings of $10.2 billion could be spent on overloaded school systems, bankrupt hospitals and overrun prisons.
3) In Colorado, if a half-million illegals, plus their 300,000 kids and grandkids, would return to Mexico, it would save the state an estimated $2 billion a year (some experts say $7 billion) in schooling, medical, social service and prison costs.
5) Denver public schools would not suffer a 67 percent dropout/flunk rate from illegal alien students speaking 41 different languages.
6) In Florida, 1.5 million departing illegals would return the Sunshine State to the rule of law.
7) In Chicago, 2.1 million departing illegals would free up hospitals, schools, prisons and highways for a safer, more crime-free experience.
8) If 20 million illegals were deported, employers would hire citizens at living wages, resulting in an additional $401 billion in IRS income taxes, with an equal amount for local, state and city coffers.

11) Over $80 billion would not return to illegals’ home countries by cash transfers [remittances].
12) At least 500,000 anchor babies would not be born in our country, costing us $109 billion per cycle.
13) At least 86 hospitals in California, Georgia and Florida would still be operating, not bankrupted out of existence because illegals pay nothing via the EMTALA (Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act). Between $14 billion and $22 billion is spent each year on welfare to illegals.
14) $7.5 billion is spent each year on Medicaid for illegals.
15) $12 billion is spent each year on primary and secondary education for illegal children – and they still can’t speak English.
