DAILYKENN.com -- Donald Trump is on the side of Americans and Americans are on the side of Donald Trump when it comes to the immigration issue.
A Gallup poll revealed that Americans were most concerned about immigration, second only to government.
While illegal aliens add $19-billion each year in state, federal, and local taxes, they cost Americans $134.9-billion per year, a net lose of $115-billion per year.
The math is simple: Illegal aliens cost America taxpayers about $315-million each day; primarily in health care costs and other government services such as education. If a secure border wall cost $5-billion, it would pay for itself in about 16 days. ($315-million per day times 16 days equals $5.04-billion).
The costs of crime committed by illegal aliens is not included.

President Trump is far from alone in his determination to secure our borders — according to a recent Gallup poll, Americans view immigration as the second-biggest problem facing the country today.
That’s bad news for the Democrat Party, which is hellbent on opposing the president’s efforts to fix our broken immigration system, especially the border wall he needs in order to get illegal immigration under control.
In fact, illegal immigration costs taxpayers a staggering $134.9 billion a year while contributing only $19 billion in state, federal, and local taxes. At the federal level, medical costs make up the lion’s share of government expenditures on illegal immigrants, while education is the largest single expense that illegal immigration imposes on state and local governments.
Sadly, an overloaded welfare state is not the only negative side-effect of our broken immigration system. Communities across America are also being devastated by the violent crime and drug trafficking that result from our failure to control the border — an issue Donald Trump has addressed repeatedly and emphatically ever since he first announced his candidacy for president.
