According to the Federation for Immigration Reform (FAIR) there are now 564 sanctuary jurisdictions (state, counties, cities) prohibited by law in the United States. Read the full report “Sanctuary Jurisdictions Nearly Double Since President Trump Promised to Enforce Our Immigration Laws” by clicking here.
You may be surprised to know that Florida has doubled to 15 Sanctuary Jurisdictions. These 15 Sanctuary Jurisdictions are*:
Leon County (home of Socialist Mayor Andrew Gillum of Tallahassee and Gubernatorial candidate)
Palm Beach County (county where Allen West lost his House race by close margin due to voter fraud)
St. Lucie County
West Palm Beach
According to Fair’s September 27, 2017 report “The Fiscal Burden of Illegal Immigration on United States Taxpayers“:
At the federal, state, and local levels, taxpayers shell out approximately $134.9 billion to cover the costs incurred by the presence of more than 12.5 million illegal aliens, and about 4.2 million citizen children of illegal aliens. That amounts to a tax burden of approximately $8,075 per illegal alien family member and a total of $115,894,597,664. The total cost of illegal immigration to U.S. taxpayers is both staggering and crippling. In 2013, FAIR estimated the total cost to be approximately $113 billion. So, in under four years, the cost has risen nearly $3 billion. This is a disturbing and unsustainable trend. The sections below will break down and further explain these numbers at the federal, state, and local levels.
A new map posted by HowMuch.net breaks down the economic toll of illegal immigrants state by state:
Here are the ten states most heavily weighed by the cost of illegal immigration:
1. California – $23,038,125,353
2. Texas – $10,994,614,550
3. New York – $7,489,141,357
4. Florida – $6,290,429,108
5. New Jersey – $4,466,838,574
6. Illinois – $3,220,767,517
7. Georgia – $2,487,719,503
8. North Carolina – $2,437,965,113
9. Maryland – $2,378,996,947
10. Arizona – $2,314,131,964
This is totally unacceptable and must be changed prior to the 2020 elections.
Ron DeSantis has pledged to end all sanctuary jurisdictions in FL when he becomes Governor – let’s get out the vote and make sure he does become Governor and then hold him accountable to deliver on this promise. Conversely, his opponent, Socialist Andrew Gillum is running on a promise to make all of Florida a Sanctuary State – we can’t have this folks.
