Costs of Illegal Immigration for Frederick County

Illegal Immigration Costs Frederick County Residents $56,587,264.00 PerYearFREDERICK -

Help Save Maryland (HSM) calculates that the cost ofillegal immigration to Frederick County taxpayers will be over$56,587,264.00 next year.

This amount is the cost of public education,emergency healthcare and incarceration for illegal aliens. HSM basesits calculations on recent information provided by the MarylandDepartment of Planning and the Federation for American ImmigrationReform (FAIR).

“Our citizens should be outraged,” said Steve Berryman, the HSMcoordinator for Frederick County. “Given the difficult economicsituation many Frederick County taxpayers find themselves in, whathousehold can afford to pay $790.00 each year to support people who areliving here illegally?”

HSM’s calculations do not include the cost of other social servicesprovided by the County, like day laborer centers and non-emergencyhealth clinics. Nor do they include the value of state and county grantsand contracts paid to organizations that serve a predominantly illegalclientele, such as CASA de Maryland, Identity Inc., Catholic Charities,Centro Familia and the Latino Economic Development Corporation.

“And we didn’t even begin to try to estimate the economic losses,and pain and suffering that will be inflicted upon Frederick Countyresidents next year due to rising crime, gang violence, housing codeviolations and traffic accidents caused by illegal aliens,” said BradBotwin, Director of Help Save Maryland. “If we had, the cost would bemuch, much higher.

”Help Save Maryland is a grass-roots, multi-ethnic, non-partisancitizens’ organization opposed to the use of tax dollars on programsand services for illegal aliens in Maryland. It has members in 23counties & Baltimore City.

Daily we hear that illegal immigrants are here to stay and that it would be almost unfeasible to deport the 12 million people? The question to answer is there—JUST--12 million or is the American public being sold a bill of goods? The majority of bloggers believe the answer is somewhere between 20 and 30 million? Yet even that is a conservative number? We cannot bus them out as this legal route is impossible; if not so expensive to even conceive? But bloggers including myself have for over a year pummeled the Internet that E-Verify, the illegal immigrant restriction program can extracts major numbers from the mainstream workplace. As always huge influences from businesses, politicians and open border organizations whose scheme is mostly monetary gain have incessantly pushed into silence the growing attention to this computer program. Popularity has increased throughout America, as more and more businesses have found its operation easy and practical. Why hold a job summit for Americans, when you will not eject the illegal immigrants squatting here that would open jobs for the less skilled?

The US government has now realized the importance to funding the program, even though Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) and Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) have unified to crush its importance to this nations working force. Too many highly positioned Democrats and even Republicans have destabilized immigration enforcement for too long. Although only funded for a further 3 years E-Verify is being accepted as a way to bring more legal residents and citizens into the job market and severing illegal labor. The momentum of E-Verify will not stop now as bloggers have infiltrated every media outlet from the West to the East coast. Democrats have not entered the main battle lines to push for what they dress-up as Comprehensive Immigration reform? But most Americans are not fooled, knowing full well this is another word--BLANKET AMNESTY? The previous AMNESTY in 1986 was disguised enough, to promote less attention to the act.

Because the majority of the national press is holding back the exact truth, universal bloggers are supplementing the real facts. Most pro-sovereignty groups have not the money-backing of pariah businesses groups, grants of earmarks from corrupt lawmakers or donations from so called tax exempt foundations and organized church. So proponents of Homeland Security Secretary Napolitano and others are limited to grabbing the public attention to the consequences of AMNESTY.

Just today NUMBERSUSA has sent out a warning to their members stating “Massive, Unchecked Immigration Will DESTROY Our Future! But It Doesn't Have to Occur if We Act Now! For the first 200 years of our country's history, about 250,000 immigrants migrated to the U.S. But since 1990, 2 MILLION legal and illegal immigrants are migrating to the U.S. PER YEAR. The current U.S. population of 310 million will soar past half a billion around mid-century if immigration is not reduced. We all support immigration in moderation. Many of our friends and co-workers are immigrants themselves. But too much of anything can become--DESTRUCTIVE. Tell Congress that a half-billion is far too many! We already have enough congestion, traffic, overcrowded schools and overburdened healthcare systems as it is. Join with 932,225 citizens who make their voices heard through NumbersUSA, America's largest-member immigration-reduction organization.”

Amendments to the 1986 act, could import a refined number of highly skilled workers that are required? But not lesser volumes of discount unskilled labor that cannot be recruited from the American people, who are many in our population. Other powerful developed nations can attract highly professional focused workers, without the flotsam that we end up eventually subsidizing. If you remember the last stimulus package was to give jobs to Americans, but as many 300.000 was artfully given to illegal workers?

Don’t procrastinate on this outrageous 2009-2010 Amnesty, as we cannot even feed, house and offer substantial health care to our own poor? We are a debtor to China and other countries, when we once were an influential lender. While our free trade Globalist agreements are completely out of control and corporate owners outsource and in-source cheap labor and in many cases inferior trade goods. INFORM YOUR SENATORS AND CONGRESSMAN/WOMAN AT 202-224-312. NOT TO APPROVE ANOTHER AMNESTY OR FACE THE CONSEQUENCES IN THE VOTING BOOTH? MAKE AN EXAMPLE OF SEN. HARRY REID NEXT YEAR AND NANCY PELOSI?

The total cost to Marylanders is $1.4 billion. That is more than half of next year's projected budget deficit!

How much more out of touch can Annapolis be?

When the budget sh*t really hits the fan in Annapolis early next year, Maryland citizens are finally going to be unable to ignore the costs of illegal immigration.

Steve Berryman is a nitwit with no public credibility. Your cause is hurt by his moronic presence
