Over the past several weeks I’ve posted how much illegals cost Ohio, Maryland, North Carolina, Texas and California taxpayers. The amounts were staggering to say the least, but someone asked me what is the annual cost to taxpayers incurred by illegals for the entire United States.
I turned to the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR). The figures they provided are listed in the graphic below. The number of illegals is based upon 2009 figures indicating that there were approximately 12,220,000 illegals in the US 6 years ago. The cost per state is based upon 2010 figures indicating that the total cost to US taxpayers was approximately $83,778,000,000 as of 5 years ago.
Now consider the fact that the yearly cost to Ohio taxpayers in 2012 jumped from $563 million per year to $879 million per year. That’s an increase of $316 million (56%) in just 2 years.
