Update: The Hidden Cost of Illegal Immigration

Posted by revkharma on May 20, 2008

There is more to the story, and it continues to get worse, not better. Some details were printed in the local paper, the (Hilton Head ) Island Packet. At the time of his court appearance, the driver of the car announced to officials that he was NOT the man they had named. He now claims that either: he provided his friend’s ID to police at the time of arrest, or they mistakenly used an ID they found. Either way,he has also indicated that he has no social security number, and no available immigration documents. However, in the face of this statement, police are still “checking on his immigration status”. Once such status is determined, what will be done? We will pay for a trial, we will pay for an attorney for this man, we will then, if he is convicted, pay for his incarceration, medical treatment, and mandated care for the duration of his sentence. In effect, the taxpayers will foot the bill for this man for many years.

It seems to me, that most logical, most fair , most sensible thing would be to determine if he is in fact here illegally,then determine his country of origin. Then repatriate him, billing the host country for any incurred costs. But that is merely a pipe dream, isn’t it. I’ll keep you updated on this one.

As Always..

Keep the Faith!
