When you hear about illegal aliens, you generally think of Border States like Arizona, California, New Mexico and Texas and of course Florida, but most people don’t think of states further north like Ohio as having a problem with illegal aliens. I live in the northern tip of Kentucky, just south of Cincinnati, Ohio and I’ve seen a fair share of illegals here in our area which admittedly surprised me.
In 2012, the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) looked at how much illegals were costing the state of Ohio. They report that tax dollars are used to fund education, medical care, law enforcement activities and other government services including food stamps, housing, etc.
At that time, they calculated that there were 9,480 illegal alien children and another 25,375 US born children of illegals in Ohio in 2012. FAIR reported that it cost Ohio taxpayers $364 million per year just for the education of illegals from K through 12. Ohio taxpayers pay an additional $145 million a year for Limited English proficiency instructions, raising the total cost for educating illegals to $509 million per year.
