429,000 Annual Immigrant Births Cost Taxpayers $5.3 Billion

Massive and increasing costs to Taxpayers are incurred (now $330 Billion per year NET of Taxes Immigrants Pay) as each Birth Cohort Matures. Mass Immigration is Very Costly, but BALANCE has The Solution (see below).

Of the Many Costs of Mass Immigration borne by U.S. Taxpayers, the Costs of Immigrant Births alone (via Medicaid or the Uninsured) is remarkable. Specifically, 1 in 5 births in the U.S. are to Immigrant Mothers. U.S. Taxpayers pay for 67% of births to illegal immigrants, 47% of births to legal immigrants according to a new report  by CIS, S. Camarota, Director of Research, 10/9/18.

Based on an analysis of Census Bureau data, the Center estimates that nationally one in 13 births is to an illegal immigrant, totaling 300,000 births a year. One in eight births is to a legal immigrant. We also find that more than half of the births to immigrants (legal and illegal) are paid for by taxpayers, including 67 percent of births to illegal immigrants.

“Steven Camarota, the Center’s Director of Research and co-author of the report, said, ‘The enormous number of births to legal and illegal immigrants may hinder assimilation as children from immigrant families will largely interact with only each other.”  He also points out that “paying for so many births to immigrant mothers may be appropriate, but the large share who can’t provide for themselves without the help of American taxpayers raises serious questions about whether our current immigration system makes sense.’…

Given that Demography is Destiny, consider that since the aforementioned Facts are for one year only, what the costs and demographic consequences will be for each year projected into the future unless BALANCE’s Solution is implemented. Consider further that Taxpayer- and Immigrant-Funded Immigrant Births Total 791,000 per year.

National Picture from CIS Report:
·         …That legal immigrants accounted for 12.4 percent (494,000) of all births annually and illegal immigrants accounted for 7.5 percent (297,000) annually.
·         The 297,000 births per year to illegal immigrants are more than the total number of births to all mothers in any state except California and Texas. They are also more than the total number of births in 16 states combined, plus the District of Columbia.
·         The estimated 28,000 births to illegal immigrants in just the Los Angles metro area are more than the total number of births in any of 14 states or the District of Columbia. 
·         More than half (54 percent) of births to immigrants (legal and illegal) are entirely or largely paid for by taxpayers because the mother is on Medicaid or uninsured…
·         Illegal immigrants account for 11 percent (198,000) of all publicly funded births, and legal immigrants are another 13 percent (231,000). [Emphasis added]
·         We roughly estimate that the annual cost to taxpayers for births to immigrants (legal and illegal) is $5.3 billion — $2.4 billion of which is for illegal immigrants.
·         In California, New Jersey, and New York, immigrants (legal and illegal) account for about one-third of all births. In Massachusetts, Nevada, Florida, Texas, Hawaii, Maryland, and Washington, immigrants account for one in four births. Immigrants account for one in five births in Virginia, Connecticut, Illinois, Arizona, Rhode Island, and Oregon.
·         The states with the largest numbers of births to illegal immigrants are California with 65,000, Texas with 51,000, Florida with 16,000, Illinois with 14,000, Georgia with 13,000, New York with 12,000, and New Jersey and North Carolina with 11,000 each….
·         In North Carolina, Texas, and Georgia, three-fourth of births to illegal immigrants were likely paid for by taxpayers. In California, Florida, and New York, two-thirds of these births were likely taxpayer-funded. In Illinois and New Jersey, more than half were likely funded by the public.”

BALANCE’s Solution: The U.S.A. needs a zero–net (i.e., 150,000 per year arrivals and 150,000 per year leaving) Moratorium applying to all immigrant categories, a Wall at our Southern Border, mandating use of eVerify in Hiring Decisions, elimination of anchor baby citizenship and an end to Catch & Release.

Enactment of all these would reduce the 1.6 Million Annual flow of Legal Immigrants (400,000 annually into California alone – U.S. Census) and thus greatly reduce the Annual NET (after subtracting Taxes Immigrants pay) Costs of Legal Immigration, now running at $330 BILLION per year.

Implementing the Trump Administration’s Admirable Proposal that No Green Cards (reflecting permanent Resident Status) would be issued to those who had accepted, or were likely to accept in the future, any Taxpayer-funded Benefits, would reduce Immigrant Numbers significantly.

IMMIGRATION LEGISLATION IS BEING CONSIDERED NOW! And December 7 is the Deadline to pass a Budget and fund The Wall.

It is highly likely that a Bill fully funding The Wall will contain other Immigration Provisions! So, we must ACT NOW! Emphasize that a Zero-Net Moratorium would save Taxpayers $One-Half Trillion in the next Decade. So CONTACT & RECONTACT Your Representatives!

And please help BALANCE MOBILIZE ACTIVISTS and contact Media and Congress to intensity our push for the aforementioned all-categories included zero-NET MORATORIUM TODAY, NOW! Contact your representatives!


Dollar for Dollar, Donations to BALANCE and its ASAP! Coalition Allies who push a Moratorium, create much more Political Clout for reduction in immigration numbers than Donations to Mass Immigration Management Groups, i.e., those who refuse to push for an all-categories-included Zero-Net Moratorium.

Indeed, such Refusal is counterproductive to genuine Immigration Reduction Efforts because the Main Management Groups advocate positions which ensure unending Mass Immigration.
