• Educating Illegal Immigrant Minors Could Cost Over $760 Million

    An estimated 37,000 unaccompanied minors’ education costs could be passed onto American taxpayers, says the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), which issued its findings in a new report.

    FAIR gathered data from the Department of Health and Human Services.

    “We’re not doing American students any favors by dumping in tens of thousands of additional illegal alien children,” FAIR’s Bob Dane told Fox News.

    The report says California, Texas, Florida, and New York, will receive the largest impact in cost, with New York state’s bill showing up at more than $147 million.

    “We’re one of the wealthiest countries in the world,” Jorge Baron, of the Northwest Immigrant Rights Project told Fox News. “We should be able to handle this if we focus our energy and some resources and we make sure that kids are treated well, and treated the way we, in America, believe kids should be treated.”

    That would be all well and good if local and state governments weren’t already strapped for cash and still struggling in Obama’s sluggish economy.

    California is taking public subsides to illegal immigrant students one step further.

    The Golden State’s government just passed a bill, the California Dream Loan Program, that allows individual students to apply for and receive up to $4,000 in loans a year.

    So while wages are falling for average Americans, and as the cost of healthcare, gas, and food rises, the government is offering hundreds of millions of your tax dollars to people who have no legal right to live in America.

    November can’t come fast enough.
