If you want to immigrate to another country you would have to follow that country's immigration laws. So when foreigners want to immigrate to our country shouldn't our elected employees enforce our immigration laws? In the first 6 months of 2018 542,011 people did so, obtaining their Lawful Permanent Resident Status (See Table 1-A). Our immigration laws are spelled out HERE and HERE. Illegal immigration costs U.S. taxpayers $116 billion annually through education, medical and justice costs, plus welfare payments. Illegals also displace our own legal workforce causing even more welfare, unemployment and other assistance payments and illegal aliens also make up 25% of the inmates in our federal prisons.
