The Staggering Costs of Refugees Stampeding Over Our Borders

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

By Frosty Wooldridge

Few Americans understand that our elected leaders gallop our country over a financial and demographic cliff. It’s beyond comprehension as to Biden’s encouraging and facilitating millions of refugees over our borders. It can’t continue much longer because our entire financial system WILL collapse.

(Frosty Wooldridge on Road Going to the Sun, Glacier National Park.)

Most refugee/migrant resettlement expenditures are doled out in the form of cash assistance, welfare programs, and other social services. This policy clearly thumbs its finger to the middle class, struggling native-born citizens, legal immigrants as well as single parents who are not getting the benefits that would ease their quality of life in the US.

We’re talking into the hundreds of billions of your taxpayer dollars.

Federal welfare programs are being offered to refugees and asylums seekers:

  • Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) formerly known as AFDC
  • Medicaid
  • Food Stamps
  • Public Housing
  • Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
  • Social Security Disability Insurance
  • Child Care and Development Fund
  • Job Opportunities for Low-Income Individuals (JOLI)
  • Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP)
  • Postsecondary Education Loans and Grants
  • Refugee Assistance Programs
  • Earned Income Tax Credit and Additional Child Tax Credit11

State and local welfare programs that refugees and asylums can apply for include but are not limited to:

  • Housing assistance
  • English as a Second Language programs
  • Special education programs
  • Job training and employment search assistance
  • Social services programs
  • Immigration assistance programs (aiding asylums in filing green card applications, citizenship applications, and petitions for relatives to immigrate to the U.S.

Dan Stein of reports, “In excess of $52 billion annually to educate illegal immigrants. The root cause of all the welfare payments to illegal aliens is the so-called ‘anchor baby’ phenomenon at 300,000 annually.

“Between 2010 and 2014, 5.2 million new immigrants settled in the United States. Mexico had by far the largest immigrant population in the country, with 11.7 million legal and illegal Mexican immigrants living in the United States in 2014…millions more in 2021.”

Countries sending more than the usual numbers to the US the last five years include Saudi Arabia (up 93 percent), Bangladesh (up 37 percent), Iraq (up 36 percent), Egypt (up 25 percent), Pakistan, India, and Ethiopia (24 percent). A new PEW Research points out that roughly 14 percent of the US population is foreign-born. That equates to roughly 45 million foreign born in 2021.

The average cost to illegally enter the US varies. According to the Competitive Enterprise Institute, unauthorized Mexican immigrants usually pay $4,000-$10,000 to cross the border. “The smuggling fee for unauthorized Central American immigrants is currently between $7,000 and $10,000. The smuggling fee for an unauthorized Chinese immigrant is about $75,000 The most recently compiled averages in 2005 show that unauthorized Asian immigrants pay $26,041 to come to America, Europeans pay $6,389, and Africans pay $2,200. The smuggled migrants do not have a green card, work permit, or other legal work authorization waiting for them in the U.S. when they arrive, but they still pay enormous sums of money.”

Using Census Bureau numbers, the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) found the US immigrant population, both legal and illegal, stood at 44.9 million in 2021. “The growth in the foreign-born population has accelerated over the past few years and immigrants now comprise about one out of every eight U.S. residents, the highest percentage in more than a century,” reported

So, if the migrants are fleeing for economic reasons, where are they getting the travel money? According to a Pew 2013 research report, a total of $52.9 billion in remittances were sent worldwide, but the bulk, $41.9 billion went to Latin America. Those remittances leave the US economy and often end up in the hands of drug cartels and coyotes.

In other words, we’re being financially bled to death by employers of illegal aliens and our Congress and president who support this financial meltdown. At $28 trillion in national debt, how much more can you keep paying on the interest to that debt?

PEW reports, “On top of the $52.9 billion remittance figure, a nonpartisan Washington DC group dedicated to researching legal and illegal immigration in the US found immigrants benefit from America’s vast social welfare programs. The report found “the majority of households across the country benefitting from publicly-funded welfare programs are headed by immigrants, both legal and illegal. States, where immigrant households with children have the highest welfare use rates, are Arizona (62%), Texas, California and New York (61% each) and Pennsylvania (59%). The study focused on eight major welfare programs that cost the government (that’s you and your money) $517 billion the year they were examined. They include Supplemental Security Income (SSI) for the disabled, Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF), a nutritional program known as Women, Infants and Children (WIC), food stamps, free/reduced school lunch, public housing and health insurance for the poor (Medicaid). Food assistance and Medicaid are the programs most commonly used by illegal immigrants, mainly on behalf of their American-born children who get automatic citizenship. On the other hand, legal immigrant households take advantage of every available welfare program, according to the study, which attributes it to low education level and resulting low income. The highest rate of welfare recipients come from the Dominican Republic (82%), Mexico and Guatemala (75%) and Ecuador (70%), according to the report, which says welfare use tends to be high for both new arrivals and established residents.”

I’m asking you this question: how much longer can this invasion continue? How will we pay for it? What will happen to our welfare, food and medical programs with this onslaught of legal and illegal migrants? How much more of your taxpayer dollars do you want to spend on saving the rest of the world’s refugees?

We’re already full with 330 million people. Can we or will we survive another 30 million by 2030? What about another 60 million by 2040? What about the projected 100,000,000 (million) added, net gain by 2050? Anybody concerned about these staggering numbers? Are you thinking about what will happen to your kids?

Is anyone in America thinking about these questions? Are we not galloping into America’s twilight years?

Immigration, Overpopulation, Resources, Civilization by Frosty Wooldridge


This video will scare the daylights out of every American as to what’s coming to our country, US Citizenship Act 2021 by Joe Biden.

If you want to see two documentaries that give visual proof of my book’s contents, go to Netflix, and type in “Cowspiracy” that shows you the damage to the air, land and water. Watch “Seaspiracy” to see how humans are destroying the oceans.
