To Candace you say we cannot afford a 20 billion dollar fence. But apparently you forget that the Democrats promised to secure the border in exchange for Reagans giving a one time amnesty. The border was never secured and now we have to cough up far more. Each young immigrant in CA costs our state $13,000 per year just to school. When an illegal goes to the ER to have a baby here the bill is picked up by the taxpayer and runs between $40-60 thousand dollars. So it is not uncommon for illegals to rack up hundreds of thousands of dollars in costs to US citizens. That lettuce picker will likely get a full refund on their tax return as well so don't give me "they pay taxes bs" They are usually paid in cash, claim a modest income. get a taxpayer id from the IRS and then claim multiple child income credits so they pay a thousand dollars or so in tax but receive far more back in child credits. Why do you think Rubio made such a big deal about making sure the child tax credit was not only doubled but refundable. Because illegals get far more back than they actually pay in.
