Part 3: Thousands of cuts that bleed taxpayers to death, changing the language, face and culture of America
As we watch the U.S. Congress drive America into greater consequences of unemployment, unimaginable debt, offshoring, outsourcing and insourcing of jobs, along with total disregard for the —they turn a blind-eye to our unguarded borders as well as this phenomenon known as ‘anchor babies’.
Every year, 400,000 pregnant women, some figures show a much higher number, enter the United States illegally to birth their babies on American soil. Their children become instant citizens and their mothers become instant wards of the American taxpayer. You might say they provide 400,000 cuts to our financial systems that bleed us 24/7.
To give you a rough estimate of the costs: average birth in U.S. hospital: $8,800.00 without complications, by Barbara Feder Ostrov, San Jose Mercury News, 6/12/07. K-12 education at average rate of $9,644.00 per year per child. Breakfast/lunch provided to anchor babies at $5.00 per meal. English as second language at $1,000.00 per year per child. No figures for costs of medical care, assisted housing, special needs children with Autism, Down’s Syndrome or , and food stamps.
Bare minimum total cost to U.S. taxpayer for one child to age 18: $218,792.00
Bare minimum total cost to U.S. taxpayer for 400,000 anchor babies to 18: $87,526,800,000.00
That’s $87.5 billion dollars of your money for someone else’s kid from a foreign country that lives illegally in the US. I could not find the figures for the upkeep of their mothers, but their costs run into the billions of dollars also.
In an excellent expose’ by Mark Cromer, www.capsweb.org, senior writing fellow, titled: “American Jackpot: Remaking America by Birthright Citizenship,” he explains phenomenon occurring only in the United States. No other country in the world allows it!
