There is more to the “Illegal Immigrant” debate than just politics. There is a real long-term, ripple effect when adults and children, who are in our country illegally, become part of our society. When they first arrive, if known, they are processed by border patrol, ICE and other State and Federal Employees. These employees are paid with State and Federal Tax Dollars. These immigrants might need immediate attention for health care and nutrition…also a cost. For those that stay, pending a review or enter in hiding, they then become part of society, which means their children attend school. Each child that takes a seat at a desk also takes funds/supplies from an American Child and those here legally. Many of the illegal children may need assistance with a free breakfast/lunch program etc. again funds that have to be used..also, every seat filled puts a strain on the child/teacher ratio. Democrats are against School Vouchers and complain that schools need more money but are in favor of those things that are putting a strain on the financial burden of school districts. For Adults, many illegal immigrants will drive cars without insurance. Texas has over %15 uninsured drivers on the road with a large portion being illegal immigrants. Texans that pay for insurance end up paying a higher price to carry coverage for Uninsured Motorist Coverage. Texas is one of the three highest states in Auto Insurance premium. Health care costs are also affected. Many Hospitals have to treat people in Emergency Rooms whether there is insurance or not. They have to make up the cost somehow. Those that do pay may see things like $30 Band-Aids and other ridiculous costs. Whether the state or local government reimburses these hospitals for any of the cost it is still with Tax Payer money. We should never be a society that does not have compassion nor should we refuse to help someone who is in pain or need. The only compassionate/fair solution is To Limit those that come into our country in the first place. If we can control our borders and control the flow of immigration then there will be a positive effect on many aspects of our society without losing compassion for those that are in need.
