What if 20 Million Illegal Aliens Vacated America?

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 percent of Americans demand secured borders and illegal migration stopped. But what would happen if all 20 million or more vacated America? The 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 percent 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 percent 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.
InChicago,Illinois, 2.1 million illegals would free up hospitals, schools, prisons and highways for a safer, cleaner and more crime-free 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 L.A., 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!
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.
Over one million of Mexico's poorest citizens now live inside and along our border from Brownsville, Texas to San Diego,Californiain what the New York Times called, "colonias" or new neighborhoods. Trouble is, those living areas resemble Bombay and Calcutta where grinding poverty, filth, diseases, drugs, crimes, no sanitation and worse. They live without sewage, clean water, streets, electricity, roads or any kind of sanitation.

The New York Times reported them to be America's new "Third World" inside our own country. Within 20 years, at their current growth rate, they expect 20 million residents of those colonias. (I've seen them personally in Texas and Arizona; it's sickening beyond anything you can imagine.) By enforcing our laws, we could repatriate them back to Mexico.
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, and I hope they are forwarded over and over again until they are read so many times that the reader gets sick of reading them:
1. $11 billion to $22 billion dollars are spent each year on welfare to illegal aliens. http://tinyurl.com/zob77<http://tinyurl.com/zob77 >

5. $17 billion dollars are spent each year for education for the American-born children of illegal aliens, known as anchor babies. http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/0604/01/ldt.01.html<http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/0604/01/ldt.01.html>
6. $3 Million Dollars PER DAY is spent to incarcerate illegal aliens. http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/0604/01/ldt.01.html<http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/0604/01/ldt.01.html>
7. 30% percent of all federal prison inmates are illegal aliens. http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/0604/01/ldt.01.html<http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/0604/01/ldt.01.html >
8. $90 billion dollars are spent each year on illegal aliens for welfare & social services by the American taxpayers. http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/0610/29/ldt.01.html<http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/0610/29/ldt.01.html>
9. $200 billion dollars per year in suppressed American wages are caused by the illegal http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/0604/01/ldt.01.html<http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/0604/01/ldt.01.html>
10. The illegal aliens in theUnited Stateshave a crime rate that's two and a half times that of white non-illegal aliens. In particular, their children, are going to make a huge additional crime problem in theUS. http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/0606/12/ldt.01.html<http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/0606/12/ldt.01.html >
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. http://tinyurl.com/t9sht<http://tinyurl.com/t9sht>
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. http://www.nationalpolicyinstitute.org/publications.php?b=deportation<http://www.nationalpolicyinstitute.org/publications.php?b=deportation>
13. In 2006, illegal aliens sent home $45 BILLION in remittances back to their countries of origin. http://www.rense.com/general75/niht.htm<http://www.rense.com/general75/niht.htm >
14. The dark side of illegal immigration: Nearly one million sex crimes are committed by illegal immigrants in theUnited States!" http://www.drdsk.com/articleshtml<http://www.drdsk.com/articleshtml>
The total cost is a whopping $338.3 BILLION DOLLARS A YEAR!!!

If this doesn't bother you, then just delete the message. Otherwise, forward this to everyone you know!

Remember this is only about ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTs and many of those have just overstayed their Visa.

Little Documentation to support the numbers.

I see a lot of propaganda with little documentation to support the claims in the article.

What Happens to your country's economy if 20 million people go away.

It is difficult to accurately measure the number of illegal immigrants in the United States, but most public agencies and private groups had settled on a figure of about 11 million. Where did the 20 million number come?

Over 80 percent of Americans demand secured borders and illegal migration stopped.

Even if this statement is true, that does not mean that 80% of the American public wants to deport them.

Denver's four percent unemployment rate would vanish, as our working poor would gain jobs at a living wage.

Employers would hire legal American citizens at a living wage.

What is a livable wage? If you pay a livable wage would that mean that services will cost more. How much are you willing to pay for a hamburger at McDonalds? How about salad? What is the net gain?

It means 12,000 gang members would vanish out of Denver alone.

All of Colorado has only 12,741 confirmed gang members who are affiliated with 110 street gangs. They are hardly all illegal.

thousands of illegal alien students speaking 41 different languages.

I was not aware that they spoke 41 languages in Mexico. I guess you learn something new every day.

I agree with many of the points. However there is no need to inflate the numbers to make a case. IMHO, you should not have to lie to make your case, let the facts speak for themselves.

My big question is this - how are we going to pay for sending all these folks back? Think of the man power, fuel, equipment, holding areas, food, medical etc. etc. Even if it were logistically feasable, how long would it take?

I don't have a problem with them coming across the boarder as long as there legal. I don't have a problem with them becoming citizens.

I do have a very big problem with them being illegal, they have broken our laws. Period!!!!!! I mean all illegals not just those south of the boarder.

It would cost a lot less then it cost to put up with them here every day. It would also give employment to US Citizens to get them out of here.

As it has been said many times, we can find and track down one bovine with "Mad Cow" but we can't find and track down Illegals. That is just a whole lot of ___________.

Those bleeding hearts that want to keep the illegals here, well they can just load up and ship out with them if they don't like the laws of this country. Have them enter some other country and see how quick they are put into jail for doing so.

I am for putting an armed guard every two feet along our boarders with order to stop illegals from crossing the boarder at what ever cost. I want my country back.

I am sick an tired of having to push button one for english.

Harsh yes but that is the way I feel. My mother paid the price to become a citizen, same as for my great, great, great grandparnets. Bull pucky on those who don't want to have to work and do what it takes. Take their Git with them even if they were born here, they are a product of breaking the law.

Now get the H out of Dodge!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:new_snipersmilie: :new_2gunsfiring_v1:

I was listening to NPR radio a few months back and they had a guest on the radio had written a book or done some studies on this. He was talking about the Mexican economy and how it was hurting. He stated that the largest income producer to Mexico was not from oil or any other business. The number one thing is the money that is sent back by the Mexicans in the United States to support their families in Mexico. Since the US economy was hurting a lot less money was being sent back to Mexico.

I like legal imigrants as well. However, the illegal ones are breaking the law. Those among us who are politically correct will say 1). They'll get across the border anyway, you can't stop them. 2). They do the jobs noone else will do. 3) Our ancestors came as imigrants (never mind that they came through Ellis Island). Political correctness usually involves skirting around the real facts and rationalizing in order to feel good about ourselves.

Point and Counter Point.
I understand and I don't disagree with any of you.
I DO know that here in Michigan, we had apples rotting on the trees because the farmers couldn't hire anyone to pick them. That's a big industry up here during Apple Season.

Some time ago I heard a solution to the problems we're having.
1) Dig a trench along the US/Mexico border.
2) Use that earth to build up the levies in New Orleans.
3) Take the alligators from Florida that were eating people, and put them in the trench you dug.

3 problems solved, all using natural resources. :D
