COMMENTARY OF THE DAY

     It’s good that the average household income in Martha’s Vineyard is $133,000 a year because, hoo-boy, the illegal immigrants who arrived there from Florida are going to cost taxpayers a bundle. Over their lifetimes, all the illegal immigrants Biden has so far added to the United States will cost us about $400 billion.  A sad state of affairs.

     Immigrants don’t create such a large cost for taxpayers because they’re bad or lazy. Immigrants, legal or illegal, are just regular people trying to make it through the day. But their relatively low level of education means the kinds of jobs they can get don’t pay much. That in turn means they pay relatively little in taxes and use more in government services.

     The costs at the state level come mainly from children in illegal immigrant-headed households using Medicaid and enrolling in public schools, plus births to illegal-immigrant mothers. Florida alone spent an estimated $1.6 billion in 2019 on public schooling for children from illegal immigrant-headed families — and the number of such students has certainly increased since then.  The congressionally chartered National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine looked at the big question in 2016. Using their numbers, it estimated the lifetime cost to taxpayers of an illegal border-crosser is $75,000 — that’s services used minus taxes paid.  They also estimated that since Biden’s inauguration, the illegal-immigrant population has increased by at least 5 million. When you multiply the two numbers, you get a lifetime fiscal cost of the illegals Biden has let in so far at more than $400 billion.
