Have you read this one yet?

"Low-skilled aliens exact a burden

Immigration reforms that increase the number of low-skilled workers entering the United States threaten to impose a high cost on taxpayers, says a study being released today.
The Heritage Foundation report calculates that for every $1 unskilled workers pay in taxes they receive about $3 in government benefits, including Medicaid, food stamps, public housing and other welfare programs"

....

"The report on low-skilled workers, who are defined as those without a high school diploma, did not focus on immigrants, but its authors say 25 percent of legal immigrants and 50 percent of illegal aliens fall into the category. About 9 percent of native-born Americans lack a high school diploma.
Using data from 2004, the report shows the average household headed by a low-skilled worker paid $9,689 in taxes but received $32,138 in benefits a year. The more than $22,000 difference is the "tax burden" which rises to $1.1 million over the worker's lifetime."

=============

It'll be interesting to see the full report and the re-action to it, because on the face of it, it's black-and-white verification of the fact that the nation will be headed for real bankruptcy - and a total break-down of services - sooner rather than later. Pete

Here's the link to the whole Heritage Foundation report:

So, the next time someone tries to use the tired argument that illegals

"give to as much as they take from the economy", point them toward this thread

- and the truth .
