ILLEGALS TAB? $1 BILLION JUST IN OREGON

Services include health care, education, legal aid

WASHINGTON - A new study by the Federation of Americans for Immigration Reform reveals illegal aliens in Oregon cost tax payers more than $1 billion annually.

That translates into $700 that each Oregon resident pays for state services to illegal aliens.

The study, titled "The Fiscal Burden of Illegal Aliens on Oregonians (2012)", shows that each Oregon taxpayer must contribute $700 annually to pay for the education costs, English language training, prison incarceration, law enforcement and health care for illegal aliens.

The study shows that K-12 education demands much of the money, some $575 million.  goes to Supplemental English Education costs another $159 million; justice and law enforcement, including policing and court costs, is $140 million; while Oregon taxpayers pay $125 million for health care to be provided to illegal aliens.

The study also finds that illegal aliens only pay $77 million in taxes, or 7.3 percent of the total expenditures. FAIR explains, "Illegal aliens pay relatively little in taxes, mainly because of their low earnings."

It is estimated that there are 170,000 illegal aliens residing in Oregon and about 64,000 state dependent children that were born in the United States, according to the study.

The information comes on the heels of a new study from the University of Oregon, as reported by the Eugene Registered Guard, that Oregon's economic "recovery continues to be sluggish" with unemployment at a staggering 8.7 percent.

Democratic Gov. John Kitzhaber, meanwhile, has declared that Oregon will accept identification cards as legitimate identification during traffic stops and for other police affairs and he has pushed for granting drivers licenses for illegal aliens.

Dan Stein, president of FAIR, said, "While states lack the authority to regulate immigration, there are many things that they can do to discourage illegal aliens from settling within their jurisdictions."

He said that in recent years, "other states have demonstrated that sensible policies can reduce the illegal alien population and associated costs."

"Unfortunately, Oregon officials seem to be opting for policies that will add significantly to the current $1 billion in costs each year borne by state taxpayers."

You apparently haven't lived in an area highly populated with illegals.  Let me enlighten you:  Many of these people don't become Americans because they don't want to be Americans.  They want to show up, make some quick cash by running drugs across the border and getting a free trip home courtesy of the federal government or they want free healthcare, free food stamps, free education.  There are border towns that are literally nothing more than large buildings full of post office boxes.  Why?  Because all you need is a PO Box to collect food stamps.  Recently a bunch of illegals near LA pulled down the courthouse American flag, hung the Mexican flag above it, then hung the American flag upside down below it.  That's pretty symbolic to what many illegals feel for this country.  They aren't here to make it better.  They don't want to become one of us, they don't want to learn our language.  They just want to pillage and run home.

I have respect for those who come here legally and abide by the laws. I have little respect for those who live their life amd raise their children to believe laws don't apply to them.

 Hmm...I find this very hard to believe.  First of all, the supplementary English instruction doesn't only benefit the children of undocumented immigrants.  But also, we have a surprisingly large population of Russian immigrants, and I'm certain that their children utilize those services also.

I read some of the report as well - there's a whole lot of supposition going on there.

I also found it interesting that FAIR was designated a hate group by the SPLC.  So, I am not real sure of the accuracy of this report.

 Yeah.  Just given the population ratios that one sees when they are out and about in Oregon, my gut tells me that this report is considering any immigrant or hispanic person illegal.  This article makes it seem like we are overrun with hispanic people, and that just isn't the case.  I just don't believe that there is that much money being spent strictly on undocumented people every year.

Right! People are SO hard up on government assistance abuse & the rise in use. Yet, they fail to see all the illegals using our system. It's sad really.
