$12,000,000,000: as in Billions - for Illegal's Schooling

That is the estimate the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) has done in a study on the cost to American taxpayers to educate illegal alien children in this country. When "anchor babies" (children born in the USA to illegal parents) are included, the cost jumps significantly to $28,600,000,000 - as in Billions. Some programs, such as the free-lunch programs, are not even included in these costs.

Read the complete report, "Breaking the Piggy Bank." As the report notes, states are struggling to come up with education money. The money spent on illegals could better go to other needed resources. Thank the Federal government for this mess. But hey, it's not their money - it's yours. And you wonder why your property taxes are going up?

Here is a state-by-state breakdown in $Millions:

Shocking and a disgrace. We can't even provide what we should for our own children, much less illegal children. I feel for their plight, but this is not right.
