1 in 7 Prisoners May be an Illegal Alien: Cost to American Taxpayers? $11 Billion.
Frontpage Mag ^ | 05/17/2014 | Daniel Greenfield

Posted on 05/17/2014 11:14:15 AM PDT by SeekAndFind

Doug Ross at Director Blue has done the math of the costs of Jeb Bush’s Acts of Love and the convict side alone is pretty expensive.

A little research led me to a fairly startling number. In 2012 alone, it was estimated that 350,000 illegal aliens are imprisoned in the United States, having been convicted of major crimes.

I repeat: 350,000 illegal aliens are residing in our prisons.

And how much does each illegal cost the taxpayer? The New York Times states that “the annual average taxpayer cost in these states was $31,286 per inmate.”

The total cost to the American taxpayer? $11 billion.

And that’s not measuring the full cost to society. We’re not talking about the costs of their pro bono lawyers, interpreters and social workers. We’re not talking about the enormous costs of their trials.

Those numbers can range around $42,000 p/courtroom hour. So we’ve got at least another $11 billion right there. Probably much more. And much of it borne by local municipalities.

Finally this means that illegal aliens make up 350,000 of the country’s 2.3 million inmates. Or 1 in 7 prisoners is an illegal alien.

And it means that the average incarceration rate for illegal aliens is much higher than the national 743 per 100,000 rate. Instead it would be more like 1 out of 33.

It’s not 11 billion dollars, it’s 11 billion individual acts of love.

Photo is terrifying…how can anyone choose to be so ugly and evil?

And we’re supplying “3 hots and a cot” to these creeps? This one should be sent back to his country of origin, probably Hell.

Lets assume that, if the they are the model citizens who are contributing to our society in a positive fashion as our politicians wish to lead us to believe such that the illegal alien population commits crime at roughly the same proportions as the American population as a whole , then 1 in 7 or more of the people residing within the borders of the United States are illegal aliens.

Assuming that the current us population is 320 million that means we have 46 MILLION illegal aliens in the country.

A bit more than the absurdly bogus 11 million illegals in the US that the media and the politicians pushing amnesty are trying to lull us with

Providing amnesty to a demographic tsunami of just under 50 million illegal aliens would have devastating consequences on the country economically, politically and culturally

This doesn’t even factor in the property damage inflicted on the citizenry; although I suppose it is arguable that one man’s broken window is some window company’s gain—so that’s a wash.

Incalculable is the societal damage that is created by the steady, relentless attrition in the overall respect for laws and the general glorification of criminality. In essence, the US is becoming a street gang; where the ordinary (not any more) ethical operation of society and its economy is replaced by smash-and-grab, as non-criminal aspiration is replaced by the aspiration for the protection of the junta in charge.

1 in 7 Prisoners May be an Illegal Alien: Cost to American Taxpayers? $11 Billion.

Also add in that one illegal alien that has cost America a few trillion and is not yet a prisoner.

The percentage would be higher if ICE hadn’t released 36,000.

Except that there aren’t 46 million illegal aliens, it’s just that the ones here are disproportionally criminally inclined. Hell, there are probably hundreds of thousands (millions?) running from the law in their home countries.

Say you are this serial killer in some country and things are getting a little hot. Just come to the US, a sanctuary country, and resume your career.

If I were President they’d be sneaking back across the nearest border.. in fear of their lives..

as well as many in Washington D.C...
I’d make Ron Paul look like Richard Simmons..
With FBI and CIA, and IRS on full alert..
Leaving the country would just not be good enough..

BUT that will never happen America has been de-balled..
Most american men are just cross-dressers.. selfish cowards..

I quit watching our local news because of this. Every time they showed someone wanted, arrested, or on trial they looked close to that.
