But.. the labor is sooo cheap.(sarc)
This story only touches the iceberg of what illegal immigrants really costs Americans. Yeah we think the labor is cheap so we can save a few bucks but it is no where near what we really have to pay out as tax payers. It's not only in health care. The greatest rise in Medicaid and other government programs is from foreign born people that are suspected of housing illegal family members.
and lets not forget the dirty little secret that ONE THIRD OF ALL THE INCARCERATED IN AMERICA ARE ILLEGALS.
and at an average cost of 50k per, imagine the savings if all those with the exception of maybe those on death row were to be deported not to mention the slots that would be made available for AMERICAN criminals!!!
yes, those supposed savings in produce which actually amounts to about 6 percent is dwarfed by the cost of medical, food stamps, education and incarceration just to name a few are factored in...
