The Taxpayer Burden of Illegal Immigration in California

Adrienne Royer, Immigration Reform, June 20, 2014

Yesterday, FAIR released a new study examining the taxpayer burden of illegal immigration in California, which found providing education, health care, law enforcement, and social and government services to illegal aliens and their dependents costs California taxpayers $25.3 billion a year. This is an increase of some $4.7 billion since FAIR’s 2010 study was released. These costs amount to a $2,370 a year burden per California household headed by a U.S. citizen.
