Quick Facts

Refer to this map to determine the percentage of Mexican illegal aliens in your State.  Take the median.  i.e.  if your State has 73 to 89% illegal Mexicans, consider using 81%.  This map does not take into account other Hispanic illegal immigrants.

Refer to this map to see how fast the Hispanic population is growing in your county.

It is very difficult for ordinary citizens to estimate the number of illegal aliens in border State counties.  However, if you live in the interior and did not have a Hispanic population until after the 1986 Amnesty act, chances are that the majority of Hispanics in your locale are illegal aliens.  In the February to March 2011 timeframe, the 2010 census will release demographic statistics.  Further analysis of it will show the foreign born population minus legal immigrants =  illegal aliens.

Using Desoto County, MS as an example, you can discern that it has a 90% growth of Hispanics.  Referring to the excel file, it had 6,472 Hispanics in 2008 and that 73% to 89% are probably illegal.  Mississippi had very few legal or illegal Hispanics prior to 1990.  It is well established that most of the illegal Hispanics came since then.   In 2004, the Pew Hispanic Center estimated that 81% of illegal aliens are from Latin America.  In 2008, more than 99.3% of the Border Patrol apprehensions were from Mexico.  Therefore it is not unreasonable to estimate that at least 80% of the Hispanics in Desoto County are illegal.  And that percentage is reflected in the percentage of English language learners in the school system.

Non-Hispanics

The only document we have on the number and origin of people who have overstayed their visas is from 2001 by the GAO.  (The vast majority of Hispanic illegal aliens did not travel by visa.  And those Hispanics that do cross by land, do not use I-94 forms if they are staying less than 72 hours and within 25 miles of the border) The GAO estimated 29% of illegal immigrants overstayed their visas.   52% were Hispanic and 48% were non-Hispanic.  (It is now reported that almost 45% of illegal immigrants overstayed their visa.)

Using 12,000,000 as the number of illegal aliens in our country, we can estimate that 29% or 3, 480,000 overstayed their visa.  48% were non-Hispanic or 1, 670,400.

Look up how many immigrants are in your State in the Center for Immigration Studies publication:

Immigration and Economic Stagnation: An Examination of Trends 2000 to 2010

Once you have the number of immigrants in your State, you can estimate how many are illegal non-Hispanics.  Multiply the number of immigrants in your State by 29%.  Multiply that number by 48%.

Take those results and distribute them equally amongst the number of counties in your State or distribute the number of non Hispanic visa overstays by population centers in your State.

DETERMINE HOW MANY ILLEGAL ALIENS ARE IN YOUR SCHOOLS

Visit or call your school superintendent.  They will get you in touch with the people who keep track of statistics.  How many schools, how many students, how many teachers, how many English language learner teachers, and the demographics.  This information was received by phone:

African-         Caucasian       Hispanic       Asian       Native           ELL
American                                                              American

K-5           4410               9505           1014          223          15               790

6-8           2449               4608             424          103          10               182

9-12         2989               5554             439           147           14               134
9,848         19,667          1,877         473         39             1,106

31%               62%                   6%             1.5%        .1%               3.5%

They identified 1,106  English Language Learner students of which 923 are Hispanic or 83%.
To become a citizen of the United States, you must be able to read, speak and write in English.  It is possible that new citizen parents are not teaching their children English at home.

Non-Hispanic Students (simple method)
Using 2005 statistics, there were 295,753,151 people in the US.
Best guess is that 6 million here in 2005 overstayed their visas.  (Pew Hispanic Center)
48% are non-Hispanic or 2,880,000.
2,880,000 /295,753,151  = .97%

Multiply .97% x the number of non-Hispanic students.

Normal cost to educate one child

DeSoto County                                 State Avg.
Local                $2,651                          $2,654
(property taxes)
State                 $4,176                          $4,832
Federal               $ 540                          $1,399
Total                 $7,367                          $8,885

Multiply the cost to educate one child x the number of illegal Hispanic and illegal Non Hispanic students.

In Desoto Co. the cost was between 13 and 18 million dollars for somewhere between 1849 to 2621 illegal alien students.

(This method does not include the number of non-Hispanics that crossed our land borders illegally.  Less than .7% non-Hispanics crossed our southern border.)

DETERMINE HOW MANY JAIL DAYS ILLEGAL ALIENS HAVE SPENT IN YOUR COUNTY JAIL

Speak to your County Sheriff to find out how many illegal aliens are in the jail per day and the cost per day to incarcerate.  If your county participates in the SCAAP program (federal reimbursement for incarcerating illegal aliens), you can subtract that reimbursement amount from the total cost:

Most bail bondsmen do not bond out Hispanics anymore.

In Desoto County the Sheriff reported that between 5 to 7 % of the inmates are illegal aliens per day or 26 inmates.

It costs $29.76 per day to keep an inmate in the County.

26 inmates per day x 365 days = 9,490 jail days.

125 individual illegal alien inmates qualified for the SCAAP program and spent 3,281 days in the County jail.  They are scheduled to receive $19,645 from the SCAAP program.  (the SCAAP reimbursement amount is different for each county)

$19,645/ 3,281 = $ 5.98

The Feds paid $5.98 per day.  We pay the balance.
29.76 – 5.98 = $23.78

3281 jail days x $23.78 = $78,022.18

9,490 days – 3,281 = 6,209 jail days

6,209 x $29.76 =  $184,779.84

Total: $ 262,802.02 per year

DETERMINE THE COST THAT YOUR HOSPITAL IS INCURRING TO CARE FOR UNINSURED PEOPLE.

Go to the administration office of the hospital in your county.  Ask them for the amount they are spending on the uninsured or under-insured (Medicaid and Medicare).  This is public information.

Or go to this website:
http://www2.guidestar.org/

You will have to register.
Type your hospital name, city and State.
Click on “read more” under the results for your hospital.
Click on  “Forms 990 & Docs” and download the 990 forms they have available.

In the narrative, they should report how much money was un-reimbursed.  Compare the years to show the increase of un-reimbursed money.

This information is also available at the State Capitol.  While you will not be able to determine if the increase in cost was due to illegal immigration, you can still report rising costs to your county officials.

After going through this process even the untrained eye will see obvious deficiencies in your estimates.  For example, .97% of non Hispanic illegal immigrants are not uniformly present throughout the United States and it doesn’t take into account the age of those who overstayed their visas for school estimates.  There are plenty of difficulties with estimating the cost of illegal immigration for experts, let alone local citizens.  This is a good estimate for your purposes.  It will be a very conservative estimate for illegal Hispanics.

If you encounter considerable opposition, invite them to submit their own estimates or you can insist the school districts start counting them which is totally legal for planning purposes.  Rep. Randy Terrill in OK is currently pursuing legislation that will do just that on the State level.  He is facing opposition to this because it will identify definitively how many students are illegal or the children of illegal aliens and “immigrant” groups will no longer be able to argue those numbers by claiming the non English speaking students could be US citizens or present legally.

Two good sources for all aspects and effects of illegal immigration are the Center for Immigration Studies,  and FAIR. FAIR has done extensive work on the cost of illegal immigration and you can look up information for your State.

Consider making a presentation for the data you collected including some news articles on crime committed in your local area by illegal aliens.

A powerpoint presentation with numerous graphs and pictures would be good and it is very easy to do.  It will take some of your time to do this research.  However, once it is complete, you can share this information with fellow citizens and have a level of confidence in your work.  If you live in a conservative area, your work will be appreciated and respected.  You will get a positive response from your county.

It is important to understand that you shouldn’t wait until illegal immigration is out of control in your area or State to act.  If you wait till then, there is a good possibility that several officials on the Board of Supervisors will be Hispanics.  It has become apparent that officials of Hispanic descent are in favor of illegal immigration and are more interested in representing illegal aliens than US citizens.

NOW GET TO WORK AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN YOUR COUNTY,
IT IS YOUR LAST LINE OF DEFENSE AND WHERE A LARGE AMOUNT  OF THE  COSTS TO YOU ARE INCURRED !!
