In 2011, Tina Grigio, a journalist from Denver cited the following cost of illegal Immigrants to the U.S.1. $14 billion to $22 billion dollars are spent each year on welfare to illegal aliens. (thats Billion with a 'B') http://tinyurl.com/zob77.html 2. $7.5 billion dollars are spent each year on Medicaid for illegal aliens. http://www.cis.org/articles/2004/fiscalexec.html 3. $12 billion dollars are spent each year on primary and secondary school education for children here illegally and they still cannot speak a word of English! http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/0604/01/ldt.01.html 4. $27 billion dollars are spent each year for education for the American-born children of illegal aliens, known as anchor babies. http://transcripts.cnn.c
