AUSTIN, Texas — Texas spent at least $250 million in the past year for medical care and imprisonment of illegal immigrants and other non-citizens.
The House State Affairs Committee heard testimony in Austin. Lawmakers who convene in January could face a projected $18 billion budget shortfall.
Jerry McGinty, with the Texas Department of Corrections, says prisons last month had 11,766 inmates who are foreign citizens and housing them costs $171 million annually. The federal government reimburses 10 percent.
Rick Allgeyer, with the Health and Human Services Commission, said Wednesday that health care to illegal immigrants cost Texas nearly $100 million.
Rep. Pete Gallego of Alpine says there could be significant effects if public agencies were asked to reallocate resources to check citizenship.
Tell me again how anyone benefits from this?
Democrats who fight to allow illegal immigrants to remain in this country benefit from their votes, illegally obtained, to stay in office.
Arby, thats why some Republicans in Congress are questioning B.O. about a possible end run around the Constitution he has planned via Presidential Order. Supposedly this will open the floodgates for amnesty and (coincidence, just coincidence!) future citizenship.
