Immigrant costs soar for border counties – Arizona Republic

I have a good idea to save these states some money. Stop the ridiculous tactics and find a solution that actually works which recognizes compassion for everyone.  I know this won’t make Boeing or Halliburton happy, but hate takes all our money and compassion only asks for love.

Basically, what it boils down to, is they’re being forced to enforce a broken immigration system which needs a serious shot of reality in order to provide the opportunity for others that this country’s founders exercised when they stepped off of those boats and proclaimed this their home.

WASHINGTON – Illegal immigration is costing Arizona border counties millions a year for law enforcement and criminal prosecutions, diverting money from parks, libraries and other law-enforcement efforts, according to a study to be released today.

The costs to the four border counties in Arizona increased 39 percent, from $19.2 million in fiscal 1999 to $26.6 million in fiscal 2006, researchers at the University of Arizona and San Diego State University found.

  1. Maybe if the federal government simply did it’s job and defended american sovereignty these counties wouldn’t go bankrupt.

    Immigration IS what’s wrong with america.

  2. Actually I’d imagine you really understand there are far greater issues in this country than immigration.

    The government’s too busy defending us from another “threat” – terrorism.
