President Joe Biden has transformed America’s southern border into a humanitarian catastrophe and a national security nightmare. This bloody, deadly mess is a clear and present danger to this republic.

But this also is a massive fiscal threat. Biden’s obliteration of the border is evaporating federal, state, and local coffers.

Precise figures on anything illegal are, by definition, elusive. Nonetheless, the Federation for American Immigration Reform’s report, The Fiscal Burden of Illegal Immigration on United States Taxpayers 2023, estimates that taxpayers bleed $182.1 billion in annual benefits to illegal aliens. This includes $66.4 billion in federal spending and another $115.7 billion in state and local outlays to those who have broken into America.

“No sweat!” illegal-alien apologists argue. “They work hard, pay taxes, and pull their own weight.”

If only.

“Taxes paid by illegal aliens only cover around 17.2% of the costs they create for American citizens,” FAIR calculates. This includes $16.2 billion in federal taxes and $15.2 billion in state and local levies. These $31.4 billion still stick US citizens with 82.8% of the illegals’ $150.7 billion annual tab.

Extrapolating this figure suggests that — since Biden took control three years ago this January 20 — these foreign invaders have siphoned some $452 billion from the U.S. Treasury, state houses, and city halls across America.

Specifically:

Federal

State and local

Every penny of this largesse is avoidable. Sealing the southern frontier and requiring that immigrants present visas would halt this relentless onslaught. The fact that illegal-alien encounters have soared 336% under Biden vs. President Donald J. Trump pins this evil on No-Borders Biden and the DEI Democrats.

“The impact of these policies is causing social upheaval, setting states against other states, big cities against surrounding communities, overwhelming school districts and social service providers, as economic migrants from all across the globe pour across our borders,” said FAIR President Dan Stein.

This foreign menace plagues U.S. cities and states:

Unexpectedly higher revenues let Adams pare these cuts to $10.6 billion. Regardless, New York’s citizens anticipate deadlier streets, brighter infernos, dirtier sidewalks, and dimmer students. (RELATED: JENNY BETH MARTIN: Alejandro Mayorkas Is Finally Getting A Taste Of Accountability)

Adams detonated a rage bomb on January 9 when he bussed 1,900 illegal “guests” from a rain-soaked tent city to Brooklyn’s James Madison High School and banished its children to Zoom classes. This betrayal infuriated Madison’s largely black, Hispanic, Democratic parents

Biden’s border-killing policies have lured 8.47 million illegal aliens into the hands of sadistic cartels and rape-happy human smugglers. He shines a green light for foreign criminals, spies, and terrorists. On Biden’s watch, 312 of the latter have been nabbed at the border, versus 11 under Trump — up 2,736%. How many have slipped through? Who knows?

Meanwhile, Joe Biden offers US taxpayers two words: Drop dead.
