The cost to taxpayers of births on American soil to illegal immigrants is about $2.4 billion every year, according to a new study.
The Center for Immigration Studies said its research is based on an analysis of the Census Bureau’s American Community Survey. The government data, CIS said, “provides a good picture of births to immigrant mothers, including the mothers’ demographic characteristics.”
