The Total Fiscal Cost Of Illegal Immigration Is A Staggering $135 Billion, Report Says

Illegal immigrants and their children eat up $135 billion in public funds every year, according to a report that examines the fiscal impact of unauthorized immigration in the U.S.

The study, released Wednesday by the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), is one of the most comprehensive analyses of the costs of illegal immigration to date (https://fairus.org/issue/publications-resources/fiscal-burden-illegal-immigration-united-states-taxpayers). It concludes that illegal immigration is a “staggering and crippling” drain on the public treasury.

Governments at the federal, state and local levels spent a total of $134.86 billion on illegal aliens in 2016, according to FAIR estimates.

At the same time, tax contributions by illegal immigrants did not come close to offsetting expenditures. Governments at all levels collected just $18.97 billion in taxes from illegal aliens, meaning that illegal immigration was responsible for a net fiscal drain of $115.89 billion last year.
