$1000.00 Per American Per Year—LEGAL Immigration NET Costs to U.S. Taxpayers & CCN’s SOLUTION


 Please send the following Letter
to Your Congressional Representatives
— Ask your Friends to do the Same

Dear Congressperson, 

How would you like to tell your constituents that there was an extra $1,000 each year average for them to spend because their taxes had been lowered? That would be a Tax Savings of $758,000,000 ($758 MILLION!) average for each Congressional District each year. 

According to a study by noted Economist, John Williams, which can be viewed at Carrying Capacity Network [1] which sponsored the Study, U.S. Taxpayers pay out a NET $330 BILLION ANNUALLY on LEGAL Immigration. That is, MASS LEGAL Immigration costs U.S. tax-payers $330 BILLION per YEAR AFTER SUBTRACTING ALL TAXES IMMIGRANTS PAY. [And this $330 Billion does NOT include the additional NET amount of Taxes State and Local Taxpayers pay to finance this LEGAL Immigration.] 

Thus the 330 Million Americans pay, on Average, Annual Federal Tax of $1000.00 each to fund the $330 BILLION Annual NET Cost of Legal Immigration. [Approximately 62% of those Costs fund Immigrant Health Care, Health Insurance, and Welfare.] 

Indeed, the Federal Deficit Faces a $3.3 Trillion Additional NET Hit in Next Decade, Without a Reduction in the 1.5 Million Annual LEGAL Immigrant Inflow.  

Further, the study shows that LEGAL immigrants have displaced more than 5.9 million native-born workers from their jobs since the onset of the Great Recession. That is an average of 13,600 workers or voters per congressional district in the last 10 years, plus their families*. 

This Annual Tax-Payer Expense Of $330 Billion divided by the 435 Congressional Districts equals, on average, $758 million that could eventually be spent within each of these districts annually. That’s an average of $1000.00 per person in each District** that the 330 Million Americans pay to support LEGAL Immigrants. How many of your constituents do you believe know (or would even believe) that this situation has evolved over recent decades? You may not have been in office when this began, but you are there now. 

—WHAT CAN BE DONE: Reduce the 1.5 million plus LEGAL immigrant flow into the U.S. (for all Categories of immigrants including refugees) to the same number of U.S. citizens who migrate out of the U.S. annually—appx.150,000—by imposing an all-categories-included CAP. And issue these LEGAL immigrants conditional green cards with the conditions of English Language Proficiency, no Felonies or Misdemeanors, and no applications for entitlements for 10 years. They must demonstrate their desire and ability to become good U.S. citizens. 

Now for the really tough question. How are you going to explain to your constituents what you are going to do about this Costly MASS LEGAL Immigration? 

Answer: Tell them you are going to sponsor an all-categories-included Zero-Net MORATORIUM Bill. 

Couldn’t these U.S. Taxpayer dollars be better spent? How much is The Wall going to cost? How much is the infrastructure program supposed to cost? And what about the Oppressive National Debt? 

To:  Immigration Reduction Supporters: please send this letter to your Representatives and your friends, and follow up with visits to District Offices and phone calls including phone calls to your Representatives via the Congressional Switchboard:202-224-3121 or 800-828-0498. 

And, FOR LETTERS/CALLS/VISITS TO U.S. SENATORS—Multiply the number of Congressional Districts in your State by $758 MILLION so you can tell your Senators how much LEGAL Immigration is costing Federal Taxpayers in your State. 

And...Please help CCN Distribute and publicize this Study far and wide by making a secure Credit Card tax deductible Donation NOW at our website, Carrying Capacity Network, or by sending a check to:

NOW. Congress is working on Immigration legislation NOW. 

Requesting your Representatives sponsor a Zero-Net Moratorium bill and Donating to CCN maximizes our Political Leverage for lower numbers far more than pushing the half-measures advocated by the Mass Immigration Management Groups. Indeed, their pushing Bills which would only cut Mass Immigration by about half is Counterproductive because it sends the Message that Mass Immigration is OK if we just reduce it a bit.

It is critically IMPORTANT TO ACT NOW, because the legislation now being considered will likely set Immigration Policy for Years! 

*The protection of jobs held by your constituents would begin substantially from day one of a Moratorium Implementation. 

**The massive savings will not occur all at once because of the “Cost Legacy” U.S. Taxpayers have ALREADY unknowingly been committed to, to pay costs resulting from LEGAL Immigrants already in the U.S.

CCN’s recent release of its “NET Costs of Legal Immigration Study” (available here on CarryingCapacity.org) showed that the “Annual NET (after subtracting the Taxes Immigrants Pay) cost of Legal Immigration to U.S. Taxpayers is $330 BILLION per year!” That is an average of $758 Million per Year NET for each of the 435 Congressional District.
Unfortunately, Major Immigration “Reform” Proposals will not reduce the Legal Immigrant Inflow Much (and some would actually increase it) and therefore, would NOT reduce the staggering $330 Billion per year NET COST to U.S. Taxpayers.
Also Most Unfortunate, “More than 5.9 Million American workers have been displaced since 2005 by legal immigrants”.
All this is a result of the Annual LEGAL immigrant Inflow of approximately 1.5 Million+ Immigrants per year. And pending H1B “reform” Bills would Worsen the Problem of Displacement and Wage Depression of American Workers.
“…[T]he Issa bill to “reform” the H-1B work visa has passed committee, …. The Durbin-Grassley bill, … is said to be coming back soon. …[T]he RAISE Act, which would move green card eligibility to a more skills-based policy, has been endorsed by the White House …. How would U.S. citizen/permanent resident tech professionals fare under these proposals?
“I will address this question here. … the only appropriate criterion:
 Would the given proposal improve job prospects for Americans?
 “Putting RAISE aside for the moment, let’s consider Issa and D-G. Both of these proposals are designed to redistribute H-1B visas, for which there is a far larger demand than supply, from the ‘Infosyses’ to the ‘Intels.’ Did you catch that key word? Redistribute! Neither bill would reduce the number of visas. … Thus neither bill would improve job prospects for Americans.
 “Of course, that analysis doesn’t work if you believe that the Intels are angels who are using these programs responsibly. Under that belief, the visas would be used for jobs for which qualified Americans don’t exist, so the foreign workers wouldn’t be hired in lieu of Americans. I’ve presented lots of data demonstrating that this is simply false, and Congress’ own commissioned report, which actually surveyed employers, also showed it to be false. These firms are out to maximize profit, which I have no objection to at all, but it does show that their protestations that ‘We’d love to hire Americans, but sadly there are no Americans available’ can’t be taken at face value.
 “In other words, Issa and D-G would bring NO CHANGE for American tech workers. ...
 “But it’s even worse than that, due to the industry’s continuing call for Staple a Green Card to Their Diplomas legislation, under which foreign STEM students at U.S. universities would get a fast track green card, … so Staple is basically an Intels proposal.
 “The Intels would push for Staple for the simple reason that, again, they want to expand the young labor pool….
 “Note that this same dynamic would occur with RAISE. The Intels don’t want to hire a 40-year engineer… .
 “Again, all of this would lead to a greatly expanded young tech labor pool. …
 “Bottom line: Issa, D-G and RAISE would make things worse for American tech workers. Not better, not neutral, but WORSE. …”
 “H-1B Math — Your Guide to Proposed Legislation,” Norman Matloff, January 5, 2018 (https://normsaysno.wordpress.com/)(Dr. Norman Matloff is a Professor of Computer Science at U.C. Davis)
 Thus, under all these proposals, the ongoing Displacement of American Workers would Increase!
Note that the Solution CCN and its ASAP! Coalition Allies advocate—an all-categories-included Numerical CAP of 150,000 per year via enactment of a Zero-Net MORATORIUM would largely solve this problem.
And what about Costs and Immigration Numbers under Current Amnesty and Ostensible Chain Migration Reductions, and Diversity Visa Elimination Proposals?
“…an instant amnesty for an estimated 1.8 million "DACA-eligible" illegal aliens. … and make further cuts to chain migration after those currently in line for other categories have been admitted.(emphasis added)
“The bottom line is that these cuts to chain migration would reduce total legal immigration by about 18 percent in the short term, and 33 percent in the long term (after 10 years). However, the huge size of the amnesty means that under this scheme it will take about 15 years for the chain migration cuts to offset the new green cards awarded in the amnesty. In other words, there would be instant deportation relief for 1.8 million illegal aliens, but a very long wait for immigration relief for Americans.
“The spouses of citizens (and their children) will continue to enter in unlimited numbers and the spouses of Lawful Permanent Residents (and their children) will be capped at about 88,000, as under current law.”
All of the approximately 3.9 million people on the waiting list for chain migration green cards will be offered the opportunity to apply for admission under current numerical limits, plus a few extra (see below). According to the State Department, this will ultimately result in the admission of about 2.5 million new immigrants, as some will decline the opportunity and a few will be found to be ineligible for admission. I estimate that the admission of these applicants would take approximately 10 years under the current numerical limits and quotas….(emphasis added)
“Furthermore, the leading proposals being considered by the Senate create a new non-immigrant residency visa for parents of citizens that will replace the green card category…. And the parents of the "Dreamers" who receive amnesty might become eligible for residency under such a program, thus potentially more than doubling the size of the amnesty. (It has been estimated that Dreamers have an average of 1.6 parents in the U.S.)
“…After 10 years, green card awards would settle to a number that is about 33 percent lower than current levels, or about 775,000 per year.”
“White House Immigration Framework
Big Amnesty Now, Chain Migration Cuts Much Later,”
J. Vaughan, January 31, 2018, cis.org
In sum, the White House and Durbin-Graham proposals would continue and not substantially reduce Legal Immigration Numbers and thus would continue the approximate $330 Billion Annual Net Costs.
Most Important SOLUTION: Pushing a Zero-Net MORATORIUM (which would allow Immigration of about 150,000 per year, to equal out-migration) maximizes our Political clout to ensure our borders are protected and maximizes the chances of achieving reductions in legal and illegal immigration.
Let us say it plainly, refusing to push for a Zero-Net MORATORIUM (as the Mass Immigration Management Groups refuse to do) and for preservation of Western Culture as the First Priorities amounts to giving permission for the continuing Mass Immigration Tidal Wave and National Deconstruction and the continued Displacement and Wage Depression of American Workers!
Ann Coulter is correct—anything less than a MORATORIUM on Legal Immigration will consign the America we have known to Oblivion.
TIME IS SHORT. Immigration Bills are being considered NOW! So PLEASE ACT NOW, and please also make a tax-deductible Donation to CCN NOW, so we can intensify our initiatives by mobilizing thousands of our activists to push for a MORATORIUM! We probably have only a very few weeks to generate support for substantial reductions.
CCN’s and the ASAP Coalition’s Zero-Net MORATORIUM Strategy is The One which Maximizes both our ‘Clout for the Buck’ and the probability of Success!
In order to succeed in the next few weeks, we need your Tax-deductible Donation NOW to Maximize our Clout.
