Without the encouragement and assistance that the federal government, the Bush administration, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, some Republicans in the U.S. Congress and most of the Democrats holding elected positions are giving to the millions of illegal aliens in this country the American people would see a miraculous reduction in crime, a remarkable increase in the profitability of hospitals and emergency medical care providers, a reduction in medical insurance costs, a significant improvement in our nation’s educational system, a reduction in the nation’s dependence on foreign oil, less crowding on American highways, better quality air and water, a reduction in government spending and a more secure nation less likely to be infiltrated by Islamic terrorists.
The American people have no possible way to fully comprehend the unimaginable sum of money that the federal government is spending everyday to bring lasting government sanctioned benefits into the day to day lives of the criminal aliens that are coming across our southern border at a rate of 8000 per day. It would take a legion of researchers years to uncover the virtual multitude of federal grants, programs and entire departments dedicated to supplying benefits and representation, in one form or another, to the millions of criminal invaders now living in this country, to say nothing about the number of federally funded programs and agencies seemingly devised for the sole purpose of encouraging even more illegal aliens to enter the United States. There are simply too many of them and to make matters even worse, there are numerous cases of typically government redundancies where several programs and agencies provide the same or very similar services and each of them is blessed with their own allotment of federal tax money.
If the American government were to stop spending our tax dollars on illegal aliens they could pay off the national debt in short order and send ever American citizen a check for a few hundred thousand dollars ever time they celebrated a birthday.
For each and every day that our congressional representatives spend discussing their proposed changes to our existing immigration laws the American taxpayers are billed around $2.5 million dollars, however, this is merely the tip of a very large iceberg (completely unaffected by global warming) bobbing about in a vast sea of federal waste.
The Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR) whose primary purpose for existence appears to be ensuring that detained illegal aliens are set free so they can easily disappear into the woodwork of America and avoid being deported cost the American taxpayers around $220 million dollars in 2006. They have been given $227 million dollars of American tax money to run their questionable operation this year and the federal government has set aside $251 million dollars for them in 2008. These are the people who see to it that illegal aliens convicted of raping pre-teenage boys and girls in our country get a fair shake when they show up in immigration court and, whenever possible, they are allowed out of detention so they can hightail it off to some other area of the country and hide while they look for more children to victimize.
The federal government spends over $2 trillion a year on approximately 1,000 federal programs. Many of these programs provide benefits supplied by similar federal programs such as the 80 federal anti-poverty programs that cost us more than $400 billion dollars a year and, as evidenced by the growing poverty rate in this country, do little toward solving any identifiable problem, real or imagined. Hundreds of these federal programs have been created for the purpose of transferring the hard earned wages of America’s middle class working citizens directly into the pockets of illegal aliens. However, as a result of gross government incompetence and the growing cost of maintaining the bureaucratic horde necessary to staff these futile endeavors, most of the money is, for lack of a better term, pissed away, long before it reaches the intended target.
$190 million dollars a year is funneled into the Department of Agriculture’s Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP) to provide food and administrative funds to States for needy people (illegal aliens) working in the agricultural industry.
$95 million dollars a year is directed to the Department of Education boondoggle known as “Developing Hispanic-serving Institutions,” a program to help expand and enhance the academic quality, institutional management, and fiscal stability of institutions that enroll large percentages of low-income Hispanic illegal alien students.
$112 million dollars a year is channeled into a program entitled “Even Start,” a bureaucratic nightmare designed for the stated purpose of breaking the cycle of poverty and illiteracy for low-income families by integrating early childhood education, adult literacy, and parenting education into a unified family literacy program aimed primarily at illegal aliens.
$79 million dollars a year is siphoned off for the Migrant and Seasonal Farmworkers Program which was designed to provide greater employment opportunities to illegal aliens with disabilities.
Another $79 million dollars a year is spent on the Workforce Investment Act – Migrant and Seasonal Farmworkers to provide funding for the training, employment, and other services aimed at economically disadvantaged illegal aliens and their families throughout the agricultural industry.
Besides the social welfare and educational programs funded by your hard-earned tax dollars the U.S. government also paid out $400 million dollars in 2006 to compensate the individual states for the cost of housing incarcerated illegal alien murderers, rapists, pedophiles and other serious illegal alien felons that the Executive Office for Immigration Review did not manage to set free on the streets of American cities. This program is called the “State Criminal Alien Assistance Program” and while they were only budgeted $241 million dollars this year that is not because there are less incarcerated illegal aliens, it is simply because the federal government has decided to stiff a large number of states for the cost of dealing with our government’s failure to enforce border security.
Ironically, the one common characteristic shared by these federal spending programs, other than being designed to benefit illegal aliens directly or dealing with the financial problems created by illegal aliens, is that practically every one of them is either entirely ineffective and noteworthy for the programs lack of a focused goal but, they are also characteristically noted for the poor management and other significant weaknesses. Furthermore the federal programs that are not completely without some redeeming value are unable to develop acceptable performance goals or collect data to determine whether or not they are doing what they are supposed to be doing. According to the U.S. Office of Management and Budget, 22% of all Federal programs fall into this category while 3% of all federal programs can only be described as pure tax drains, where the money pours in and nothing comes out.
For the American people who sit in dazed confusion trying to figure things out for themselves the bottom line is that the United States government loves to grow and expand and the haplessly impoverished criminal aliens invading our nation has supplied our government with an opportunity to expand in new and creative ways never before seen. Illegal aliens have created hundreds of very serious problems and our government has stepped up to the plate and solve these serious problems by hiring thousands of new employees, creating new and interesting programs, federal agencies with varying degrees of incompetence and prolific amounts of regulations and guidelines, effectively turning illegal aliens into an entirely new government growth industry. If our federal government were to order every illegal alien in this nation deported tomorrow, thousands of federal employees would suddenly be unemployed, hundreds of new federal buildings would be emptied, the storage costs of the resulting surplus in office supplies would be enormous and our congressional representatives would have nothing to fill their time.
illegal aliens, government waste
