Assuming that it costs $50K per year per soldier, the cost to protect a 2000 mile border with 2 twelve hour shifts of one soldier per quarter mile of border would be $80 Billion dollars. Now add up the costs from the map, and you come up with over $85 Billion! So, it’s costing at least $5 Billion a year to subsidize illegal immigration. These numbers on both sides are conservative and the former does not necessarily take into account the social costs of illegal immigration. One soldier per quarter mile is likely more than we need, and there are probably some stretches of border that need much less coverage because of its remoteness and harsh conditions. Therefore the $5 Billion SAVINGS figure could easily balloon to $10 Billion or more, and that would conservatively save the average family over $135 a year not to mention the peace of mind of a lower crime rate, the preservation of America’s culture, economy and a stronger educational system.
Now, add to that the federal cost of illegal immigration, and it’s another $30 Billion dollars for a total of $115 Billion!
If drones and satellite coverage were employed, that might reduce the need for a lot of feet on the ground, It might save another $20 – $30 Billion dollars so the average family is unburdened to the tune of close to $300 a year. If our government is so corrupt – don’t think for a moment this isn’t engineered; then think how much more waste there is in the military, welfare, education, medical care, retirement (Social Security) etc. etc. If honest Constitutional government were restored, it would reduce the average family’s tax burden by ten thousand dollars or more. Many taxes are not seen directly. Gas tax, excise tax, inflation etc.

We need to bring home all overseas troops and station them on the border with orders to shoot to kill. We don’t need 800 bases around the world. All wars are orchestrated and totally avoidable. WE MUST BAN ALL IMMIGRATION PERMANENTLY.
You’re preaching to the choir.
