Trying to convince the American people that illegal aliens don’t hurt the Middle and working classes in this country is a fool’s errand

(Black News) —Support of the American middle class and working class peoples in this country is the mantra coming from every politicians’ mouth, even the politicians who are hardcore immigration reformists who know illegal aliens are taking jobs from the very people who wages are being suppressed or losing their jobs from the influx of immigrants sneaking across the boarder.

The Democrats got it bad; on the one hand they said they are fighting against that stagnation of wages for the middle class, which has been in decline for over two decades, and the wage decline can be correlated to the increase of illegal aliens flooding the southern boarders providing cheap labor at the expense of hard working Americans.

“The fact is that illegal immigrants take jobs from American workers, particularly poor and disadvantaged citizens and legal immigrants. The best outcome for low-skilled citizen and legal immigrant workers is the removal of the illegal immigrant population. The very jobs that illegal immigrants occupy rightfully belong to out of work citizens and legal immigrants," said Lamar Smith (R-Texas) Ranking Member of the House Judiciary Committee “With 15 million Americans out of work, we need to enforce immigration laws and oppose amnesty for 12 million illegal immigrants. We must stand up for citizens and legal immigrants.”

They are costing the taxpayers a bundle — consider this. An exhaustive study by the Heritage Foundation has found that after amnesty, current unlawful immigrants would receive $9.4 trillion in government benefits and services and pay more than $3 trillion in taxes over their lifetimes. That leaves a net fiscal deficit (benefits minus taxes) of $6.3 trillion. That deficit would have to be financed by increasing the government debt or raising taxes on U.S. citizens.

Already, illegal immigrants impose costs on police, hospitals, schools and other services. Putting them on a path to citizenship means that within a few years, they will qualify for the full panoply of government programs: more than 80 means-tested welfare programs, as well as Social Security, Medicare and Obamacare. The lifetime fiscal cost (benefits received minus taxes paid) for the average unlawful immigrant after amnesty would be around $590,000. Who is going to pay that tab?

Mrs. Clinton said she would extend the Obama executive action, strongly opposed by Republicans as an abuse of presidential power and parts of which are being challenged in court. The Obama policy gives parents of U.S. citizens as well as young people brought to the U.S. illegally as children the chance for work permits. He said he adopted it in the face of congressional inaction on the issue.

Don’t mention the cost in educating these illegal alien’s children, which is paid by you and me. Californians bear an enormous fiscal burden as a result of an illegal alien population estimated at almost 3 million residents. The annual expenditure of state and local tax dollars on services for that population is $25.3 billion. That total amounts to a yearly burden of about $2,370 for a household headed by a U.S. citizen.

Illegal immigration cost North Carolina taxpayers more than $2 billion annually. That amounts to $578 annually for every North Carolina household headed by a native-born or naturalized U.S. citizen. The taxes paid by illegal aliens — estimated at less than $300 million per year — do not come close to paying for those outlays, and are not a true offset in any case. The burden on the state's taxpayers would not be alleviated by adoption of an amnesty, but could be compounded if it attracted a new surge of illegal immigration as did the amnesty in 1986.

According to an estimate from the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), the cost of educating the thousands of illegal immigrant children who have recently crossed the border is $761 million this school year.

Between January 1 and July 31, over 30,000 unaccompanied minors have been placed with sponsors in the United States. The Department of Education has responded by asserting that every child, regardless of immigration status, is "entitled" to a public school education. But according to FAIR, the price for providing that public school education is astronomical. Based on earlier estimates of the cost of educating [Limited English Proficiency] students in public schools, we came up with an estimate of how much it will cost taxpayers in each state to educate illegal alien minors in the coming school year," the study explains.

Hillary Rodham Clinton's presidential campaign is center on boosting economic security for the middle class and expanding opportunities for working families, while calling for giving amnesty to over 20 million illegal aliens in this country. Her view of helping the American middle class and illegal aliens too is a zero sum game. 

In game theory, zero sum game is when one groups’ gain is at the expense of another groups’ losses. This is a situation in which one person's gain is equivalent to another's loss, so the net change in wealth or benefit is zero for the losing group, which is the middle and working class Americans.

This double talk from these crooked ass politicians in America about helping the middle and working classes in this county is a fool’s errand.  For example, trying to convince Americans that illegal immigration has no effect on unemployment and wage stagnation is a fool’s errand, and to not call politicians like Obama and Clinton on this shit make US all look like fools.
