The US is by far the most generous country in the world on LEGAL immigration. This is not without significant cost to us, yet we welcome warmly our new citizens.
We are simply not able to receive and support every person in the world who would like to move here. CCC 2241 supports a country's duty to regulate immigration. Yet the burden on us of those who have taken it upon themselves to ignore our laws and live here illegally are a huge burden on our resources.
You may be shocked at just how expensive this is. The cost of illegal immigrants alone to taxpayers over 10 years is on the order of 3 TRILLION dollars. That is around $10,000 for every US citizen - man, woman, and child.
