It’s even bigger than that. They don’t consider Americans whose lives, safety, economy, and social service agencies are drained by these uninvited illegal immigrants.The figures from the NAS study are in 2012 dollars; converting them to 2018 dollars would raise them to $82,191. This estimate means that for every 100,000 illegal immigrants prevented from crossing illegally, it would save taxpayers $8.2 billion over the illegal immigrants’ lifetimes.
Saturday the president offered yet another compromise to reopen the government: There will be no concrete wall, only steel slat barriers; $5.7 billion for it; $805 million for drug detection technology; $800 million for humanitarian assistance; almost 3,000 additional border patrol agents; 75 new immigration judges; and a three-year extension for TPS and DACA.
Nearly 400,000 people were apprehended by U.S. Customs and Border patrol agents for the fiscal year of 2018. Walker from North Carolina stated it has to be measured by the human toll; 1/3 migrant women are sexually assaulted; 7/10 migrants are victims of violence; 20000 migrant children were illegally smuggled in one month.”
Analysis by the Institute for Defense Analyses (IDA) indicates that there are 1.95 to 2.28 apprehensions for every successful illegal crossing. This translates to about 170,000 to 200,000 successful illegal crossings in 2018, or 1.7 million to two million over the next 10 years, assuming this level continues.

There is agreement among researchers that illegal immigrants overwhelmingly have modest levels of education — most have not completed high school or have only a high-school education. There is also agreement that immigrants who come to the United States with modest levels of education create significantly more in costs for government than they pay in taxes.
The bill passed by the House of Representatives Republican Majority on December 20 contained $5 billion in wall funding. With this and the above numbers it is possible to determine if the wall can pay for itself. If the number of illegal crossing in 2018 was to continue for the next 10 years, the lifetime net fiscal drain from the 1.7 to two million new illegal immigrants would be $140 billion to $164 billion — $82,191 multiplied by the cost of each successful crosser. For a wall costing $5 billion to pay for itself, it would have to stop or deter 3 to 4 percent (about 60,000) of the expected successful illegal crossers over the next decade. So it doesn’t make sense to not protect our boarder agents by building the steel slat barrier the agents require. It pays for itself.
If you don’t think there are costs with illegal crossers, think about what is paid for schooling, health care and welfare. They don’t all work. Furthermore there would be less drugs and crime because those who are allowed to cross would be vetted with more judges working on immigration.
The next benefactor would be the steel industry in the United States which would manufacture the steel slats for the wall. But oh no, the Democrats need to give their lobbyists from Silicon Valley a benefit for all the money that helped them win campaigns. Why don’t the democrats give him his $5.7 billion and another sum for the Technologies needed from Silicon Valley.
God chose a good man to run our country and he apparently is by his side daily, because the manner in which the Liberals, the Media, and the socialists threaten him and his family it is obvious he was the strongest man for the job.
And speaking as a Catholic and the Christian, I certainly do not believe in our pope who said America shouldn’t build walls but bridges. Maybe the Pope should take down the walls to the Vatican and allow the immigrants to be fed, clothed and housed right at the Vatican. This pope is a socialist and I believe the Cardinals in electing him, especially with the sex violations of the priests and bishops against children, did not do enough, in my opinion; Thus the Pope should clean up his own house, before telling others how they should clean theirs. .
Give us the damned wall. Our Citizens, Boarder Patrol and ICE need to be safe. You liberals really don’t care about people but only use words so some think you do.
