With the exception of social security, I thought they were getting all of these benefits now, especially children's education. It looks like the author of this article is double counting.

Actually, they are just beginning to tap into traditional welfare (AFDC) via anchor babies...otherwise, it is ILLEGAL for non-citizens to tap into welfare

More to the point, it is Big Guvment "freebies" that draw the ignorant poor border crashers...70% say that is their key motivation in coming up here.

Heritage estimates that EACH poor family of 4 ILLEGALS will drain $1.4 million more over a lifetime in guvment services than it EVER pays in ANY form of taxes/witholdings.

Could legalizing an estimated 11 million illegal aliens tip our precarious national finances into insolvency?

Could be. Robert Rector, who works on such problems at the Heritage Foundation stated, "Granting amnesty or legal status to illegals will generate costs in Medicare and Social Security alone of $2.5 trillion above any taxes paid in” (Daily Caller, January 31).

Two and a half trillion dollars? Yep. That's Trillion with a T!

So far most of the talk in Washington is about border security and preventing later amnesties. Thinking people in both parties better begin calculating the costs of this amnesty.

The dirty little...
