What if 20 Million Illegal Aliens Vacated America … remember this is not about racism – it is about breaking the law and the consequences of the law not being enforced. If you want to come to America then do it the RIGHT WAY !

Tina Griego, journalist for the Denver Rocky Mountain News wrote a column titled, ‘Mexican Visitor’s Lament’ — 10/25/07.

She interviewed Mexican journalist Evangelina Hernandez while visiting Denver last week. Hernandez said, ‘They (illegal aliens) pay rent, buy groceries, buy clothes…What Happens to your country’s economy if 20 million people go away?’ That’s a good question – it deserves an answer. Over 80% of Americans demand secured borders and illegal migration stopped. But what would happen if all 20 million or more vacated America? These answers may surprise you!

In California, if 3.5 million illegal aliens moved back to Mexico, it would leave an extra $10.2 billion to spend on overloaded school systems, bankrupt hospitals and overrun prisons. It would leave highways cleaner, safer and less congested. Everyone could understand one another as English became the dominant language again.

In Colorado, 500,000 illegal migrants, plus their 300,000 kids and grand-kids – would move back ‘home’, mostly to Mexico. That would save Coloradans an estimated $2 billion (other experts say $7 billion) annually in taxes that pay for schooling, medical, social-services and incarceration costs. It means 12,000 gang members would vanish out of Denver alone.

Colorado would save more than $20 million in prison costs, and the terror that those 7,300 alien criminals set upon local citizens. Denver Officer Don Young and hundreds of Colorado victims would not have suffered death, accidents, rapes and other crimes by illegals.

Denver Public Schools would not suffer a 67% drop-out/flunk-out rate because of thousands of illegal alien students speaking 41 different languages. At least 200,000 vehicles would vanish from our gridlocked cities in Colorado.

Denver’s four% unemployment rate would vanish as our working poor would gain jobs at a living wage.

In Florida, 1.5 million illegals would return the Sunshine State back to America, the rule of law, and English.

In Chicago, Illinois, 2.1 million illegals would free up hospitals, schools, prisons and highways for a safer, cleaner and more crime-free living experience.

If 20 million illegal aliens returned ‘home’ …

If 20 million illegal aliens returned ‘home’, the U.S. Economy would return to the rule of law Employers would hire legal American citizens at a living wage. Everyone would pay their fair share of taxes because they wouldn’t be working off the books. That would result in an additional $401 Billion in IRS income taxes collected annually, and an equal amount for local, state and city coffers.

No more push ‘1’ for Spanish or ‘2’ for English. No more confusion in American schools that now must contend with over 100 languages that degrade the educational system for American kids. Our overcrowded schools would lose more than two million illegal alien kids at a cost of billions in ESL and free breakfasts and lunches.

We would lose 500,000 illegal criminal alien inmates at a cost of more than $1.6 billion annually. That includes 15,000 MS-13 gang members who distribute $130 billion in drugs annually would vacate our country.

In cities like LA., 20,000 members of the ’18th Street Gang’ would vanish from our nation. No more Mexican forgery gangs for ID theft from Americans! No more foreign rapists and child molesters!

Losing more than 20 million people would clear up our crowded highways and gridlock. Cleaner air and less drinking and driving American deaths by illegal aliens!

America’s economy is drained. Taxpayers are harmed. Employers get rich. Over $80 billion annually wouldn’t return to the aliens’ home countries by cash transfers. Illegal migrants earned half that money untaxed, which further drains America’s economy – which currently suffers an $8.7 trillion debt.

At least 400,000 anchor babies would not be born in our country, costing us $109 billion per year per cycle. At least 86 hospitals in California, Georgia and Florida would still be operating instead of being bankrupt out of existence because illegals pay nothing via the EMTOLA Act.

Americans wouldn’t suffer thousands of TB and hepatitis cases rampant in our country brought in by illegals unscreened at our borders.

Our cities would see 20 million less people driving, polluting and grid locking our cities. It would also put the ‘progressives’ on the horns of a dilemma; illegal aliens and their families cause 11% of our greenhouse gases.

We should invite 20 million aliens to go home, fix their own countries and/or make a better life in Mexico. We already invite a million people into our country legally more than all other countries combined annually. We cannot and must not allow anarchy at our borders, more anarchy within our borders and growing lawlessness at every level in our nation. It’s time to stand up for our country, our culture, our civilization and our way of life.

Interesting Statistics. Here are 14 reasons illegal aliens should vacate America:

1. $11 billion to $22 billion dollars are spent each year on welfare to illegal aliens.

2. $2.2 billion dollars are spent each year on food assistance programs such as food stamps, WIC, and free school lunches for illegal aliens.

3. $2.5 billion dollars are spent each year on Medicaid for illegal aliens.

4. $12 billion dollars are spent each year on primary and secondary school education for children here illegally and they cannot speak a word of English!

5. $17 billion dollars are spent each year for education for the American-born children of illegal aliens, known as anchor babies.

6. $3 Million Dollars PER DAY is spent to incarcerate illegal aliens.

7. 30% of all federal prison inmates are illegal aliens.

8. $90 billion dollars are spent each year on illegal aliens for welfare & social services by the American taxpayers.

9. $200 billion dollars per year in suppressed American wages are caused by the illegal aliens.

10. The illegal aliens in the United States have a crime rate that’s two and a half times (250%) that of white non-illegal aliens. In particular, their children, are going to make a huge additional crime problem in the US.

11. During the year 2005, there were 4 to 10 MILLION illegal aliens that crossed our southern border with as many as 19,500 illegal aliens from terrorist countries. Millions of pounds of drugs, cocaine, meth, heroine, and marijuana crossed into the U.S. from the southern border.

12. The National Policy Institute, estimates that the total cost of mass deportation would be between $206 and $230 billion, or an average cost of between $41 and $46 billion annually over a five year period.

13. In 2006, illegal aliens sent home $45 BILLION in remittances back to their countries of origin.

14. The dark side of illegal immigration: Nearly one million sex crimes are committed by illegal immigrants in the United States!’

The total cost of illegals is a whopping $338.3 BILLION DOLLARS A YEAR!!!

If the illegals were legal and they, and their employers, were paying taxes then $401 billion in IRS income taxes would be collected annually that would stay in America’s economy.

NOTE: Illegal aliens please remember you are welcome to come back to America … but do it the right way and assimilate into America as an American. If you left your own country because you didn’t like what was going on and life was difficult, why try to recreate that atmosphere here? … give you heart to America as your new country. Please learn English as it is the working language of American. If Spanish or another language is your heritage that is fine just speak it at home.

Many people think that a universal health insurance sounds great … and it does in principle. But what if it means having your wages garnished, paying an extra tax in April, paying a fine, or facing some other financial mandate?

It’s a question that continues to follow Democrat senators Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama as they make their last minute pitches for Super Tuesday voters.

On the TV program “This Week with George Stephanopoulos” Clinton yesterday left open the possibility that her health care program would garnish the wages of people who didn’t comply. (Doesn’t surprise me … isn’t that what all “good” socialists do – take more from the backs of the soon-to-be working poor.)

“We will have an enforcement mechanism, whether it’s that [garnishing wages] or it’s some other mechanism through the tax system or automatic enrollments,” Clinton said.

She did take the idea of fines off the table, however. Fines are a feature of the Massachusetts Health Plan.

Clinton says a mandate is necessary in order to create universal coverage. (A coverage that would cover all the illegal immigrants, and continue to cover those on welfare that are able to but not willing to work, while again the middle class continues to work not taking time for their health due to their work schedules.) Obama’s plan does not cover all Americans, but he argues a mandate could force economic burdens on those who can’t afford to buy insurance. (Can you say increased taxes!)

This dispute raises a difficult question. Some surveys show that a modest majority of Americans believe the U.S. should have universal healthcare. But most of them think reforms should be built around private insurance, not a government program that will increases taxes.

Socialists liberals are taxers. They always have been … this won’t change because their basic belief is that they can handle the citizen’s money (yours and mine) better. They believe they are more intelligent than you or I, and a little thing called equity … the leveling out of economic disparity … the spreading out of the money from those work to those who don’t – and in most cases don’t plan to. When we go along with them we are allowing them to think they are smarter than we are … and maybe they are if we don’t stand against these dangerous ideologies.

The question is still there though: How can health care be improved? A good start is to take the CEO’s and others in the top echelons of the insurance companies and reduce their million dollar and six figure salaries. Many pose as non-profit organizations … really! Not for profit organizations are suppose to be build on serving people not serving the board of directors, the share-holders (how can that be?), or the CEO and management. Maybe some IRS pressure if they don’t comply?

The next great problem in the cost of health insurance is how the government passes the buck – literally. They impose the cost of welfare health care, including 20 plus million illegal aliens, onto the states and the hospitals through black-mail and coercion. The states and the hospitals have no choice but to treat everyone as it is mandated by the federal government or they won’t get their federal monies and subsidies. The catch 22 is the federal monies are not enough to cover the costs so the hospitals and providers charge extortionist prices for tests, surgeries, and procedures to the insurance companies, of those who have insurance, to try to recoup some of the money they have lost giving so much welfare treatment. This causes the price of insurance coverage to climb sky-high and still doesn’t cover the cost of the freebies … thus causing many hospitals to shut down in high welfare areas.

Once the federal government and the insurance providers change their practices then people will be able to obtain health coverage at a reasonable rate. Going to universal healthcare will not be cheaper it will be a great deal more, and then to put it into the hands of government with no accountability and the mismanagement that is already vivid … no thank you Mrs. Clinton and Mr. Obama!
