Day by day it is getting more clear that President Trump is right to want to restrict the refugees flow into the U.S. The decision not to allow any more Muslim migrants into our country has also an economic aspect and now a new report completely vindicates this.
According to the Center for Immigration Studies, on average, each Middle Eastern refugee resettled in the United States costs an estimated $64,370 in the first five years, which comes out to $257,481 per household.
Given that it only costs $1,057 to resettle each Syrian refugee elsewhere in the Middle East, for what it costs to resettle one Syrian refugee in the United States for five years, about 12 refugees can be helped in the Middle East for five years, or 61 refugees can be helped for one year.
This is money out of every honest taxpaying American pocket. Also, this does not include the cost of refugees from non-Middle Eastern nations, which will be another 50,000 refugees costing at least another $2.5 billion.
The CIS’ director of research and lead author of the study, Steven Camarota said: “Very heavy use of welfare programs by Middle Eastern refugees, and the fact that they have only 10.5 years of education on average, makes it likely that it will be many years, if ever, before this population will cease to be a net fiscal drain on public coffers – using more in public services than they pay in taxes.”
There are other advantages even for the refugees, he added.
“The material life might be better here, but there are other considerations. One example may be if they stay there once the war is over, they are much more likely to return home,” he said. “If they stay also in countries more culturally similar, they don’t have the disruption of adjusting to life in an alien society like America.”
Caring for refugees “in the region” is also “less disruptive to our society,” Camarota said.
“Unfortunately, we have had refugees come to the U.S. and commit terrorist acts, the most cited example being the Boston Marathon bombers, who came from the Caucuses as asylum seekers,” he said.
The liberals don’t care about what it costs. They cannot import the whole World and not expect to destroy this great country!!!!
They are selling out our country for their own personal gain! Unlimited Illegal immigrants are wanted for two reasons, the Democratic vote, and money involved.
But this must stop! Why should Americans be required to support their every need?
