Immigration Reform Initially Costs Taxpayers $4,134 Per Each of the 11.2 Million Undocumented

Immigration Reform Initially Costs Taxpayers $4,134 Per Each of the 11.2 Million Undocumented

As a retired US Border Patrol/INS/ICE agent, this is what wakes me up at night.

The initial taxpayer costs of Reagan's 1986 Amnesty was roughly 900 million dollars to legalize 3 million undocumented people.  Put another way - $300 taxpayer dollars per undocumented person.  Check out initial funding for the 1986 Immigration Reform and Control Act under Section 111:

Fast forward to today:  The Senate's S. 744: Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act costs taxpayers 46.3 billion dollars (1000 million in one billion) for 11.2 million undocumented, or roughly $4,134 per undocumented person.  See the initial costs hidden under Section 6:

Read the fine print under Immigrant Visas:  11.2 million Registered Provisional Immigrants will have to work 13 years in order to received US citizenship. 

Mexico supplies 62% of our undocumented yet shares 1.25 billion dollars a day in cross border trade with the US.

Is bi-national greed the reason that Mexico can't provide some level of prosperity for their own people so that they do not have to cross illegally into the US?    

Anyone who thinks that this profitized illegal immigration game is not deadly is wrong.  This report show that approximately 200 undocumented people die per year trying to cross the border:

The report estimates that 12 Americans are killed per day by undocumented criminals:

This report lists the number of undocumented criminals deported the most egregious offenses:

I don't know if the above report is true.  I do know that some undocumented people commit crimes and those logically include murders.  One murder committed by an undocumented criminal is one too many and one undocumented person dying crossing the border is one too many.
