Cost to Taxpayers

In 1997 mass immigration cost American taxpayers a net $70 billion and, if current trends continue, the costs for the 1998-2007 decade will be a net $932 billion.

Adding one person to a community costs each taxpayer in that locality a national average $15,378.

In California, a foreign-headed household costs taxpayers in each native household $3,463 net each year.


According to Dr. George Borjas of Harvard University, immigration costs native-born workers $133 billion annually through both wage depression and job displacement.

Mass immigration results in the displacement of almost 2 million U.S. workers from their jobs annually. Due in part to immigration generated job competition the purchasing power of the average American worker has declined since 1973.
