Fly Away: Illegal aliens taking U.S. jobs sent tens of billions out of the country, draining the U.S. economy.

Advocates for immigration amnesty keep telling us that illegal aliens contribute massively to the economy.
That's true -- for the MEXICAN economy.
The fact is that the overwhelming amount of the wages earned by illegal aliens is not spent in this country, but simply sent back home.
Mexico received $21.59 billion in remittances from emigrants in 2013, the Bank of Mexico said. Nearly 74 million transactions were registered in 2013, with the average remittance totaling $292, the central bank said. Remittances rose 3.5 percent to $5.34 billion in the fourth quarter of last year, compared to the same period in 2012, with 18.4 million transactions and an average amount of $285.30, the Bank of Mexico said.
Figures for the total amount illegal aliens sent back to their home countries is not easily available, but according to the Inter-American Development Bank, all of Latin America received a staggering $69.2 billion in remittances from the U.S. in 2009 alone.

Giant Sucking Sound
When are we going to boot these d*** leeches out? Maybe the American people themselves need to do it.
Seize their assets and deport them.
EVERY MORON POLITICIAN THINKS EVERY ILLEGAL WANTS TO BECOME A CITIZEN.....BUT NO ONE DARE ASK THEM...they want the benefits without the responsibility.
Go HOME, illegal alien invaders from Mexico! Go HOME!
Must be why Mexico is enjoying about 4% annual GDP growth and 5% unemployment.
$15648 billion was 2012 GDP. $21 billion is a little over 0.1% of this; not good, but hardly something to panic about.
Wait this can’t be right, illegals contribute to the U.S. economy. /S = Sucks
The only ones that want to be citizens are the ones who want to run for office as a dim or work in government. The rest do not want to they like Mehico.
Let’s make a fair trade—one illegal for one Rat. Send a Rat to Mexico.
One of Mexico’s biggest exports: Illegals to the US.
One of Mexico’s biggest imports: Money from illegals exported to the US.
For Mexico, it is a win-win.
The illegals even get to apply for US social security, so Mexico doesn’t even have to worry about their retirement.
I think they know perfectly well illegals don't want to be citizens. They use the citizenship issue to distract the American people. It's like saying, "Oh, Mr. Smith, you know that illegal squatter who moved into your guest house? You know, the guy who trashed your guest house, brought all his family in, blasts his music all night long, leers at your daughter, and demands you feed him? Well, yeah, Mr. Smith, we're gonna let the guy and his family stay in your guest house and keep doing all those things. But hey, it's all right, Mr. Smith! Because we're not going to let him become an actual Smith, an actual member of your family! There. Doesn't that make everything all right?"
We get taxed on foreign bank accounts, so why not a 50% tax on all money sent out of the country.
Lemme see....$69 billion / 11 million illegals = $6273 dollars each they sent home?
That’s a lot of discretionary income!!!!
That money should be taxed.
I'll bet Asians bring more than that into the country each year.
And folks wonder why the economy sucks.
