Despite the fact that illegal border crossings have dropped significantly under the Presidency of Donald Trump American taxpayers are still footing a multi-billion dollar bill for the care of these people who are here because they have broken federal law. The cost is now $135 billion per year including medical care, education, and enormous law enforcement costs.
$88 billon of this is being paid for by the taxpayers in sanctuary states like California, Illinois, and New York just to name a few. The advocates for these illegals say that they pay taxes that cover much of these costs. However, studies show that the taxes paid by illegals amount to only about $19 billion leaving $116 billion to be picked up by taxpayers.
