How much money does the government waste by trying to keep out illegal immigrants?
Please phrase your question more precisely and in a less biased way.
The 2014 budget for Customs and Border Protection (note: this involves a lot more than just "keeping out illegal immigrants") was about 13 billion dollars. Even if that all went directly to "trying to keep out illegal immigrants", how much of it constitutes "waste" is a matter of opinion.
taxpayers money pays for illegal immigrants, but people should keep in mind-that illegal immigrants that work, unless they are working under the table, pay taxes too, as to the exact amount of money taxpayers pay that goes to illegal immigrants-only the government knows
Deporting the illegal immigrants that are stealing jobs and money from America
Yes it is illegal because money comes from the government. If you print off money it's illegal because you didn't get it from the government.
they're not really helpful, they're the reason why everything is so expensive. they don't pay taxes, so the government has to charge legal citizens more money for the money they're not getting from the illegal immigrants.
Many immigrants work hard and they are employed for jobs that locals are not willing to be employed for. They also try to save as much money as possible.
Illegal drug money keeps money out of the economy of the country. The government can not tax illegal drug money.
No, there is no financial reward for reporting an illegal immigrant. However, there may be an award for reporting employers of illegal immigrants to the IRS.

The need jobs and they can send money to their families.
people hire immigrants both legal and illegal because they work for less money and because no Americans want those jobs.
technically yes! it is illegal to burn money and ask for replacement bills from the government
You shouldn't be trying to fake a disability! It's illegal and morally wrong and you'll eventually get caught and have to pay back all the money you stole from the government.
if they take their money no questions asked. Then they should pay the money no questions ask. It is very simple!
The deportation of an illegal immigrant does cost the government money. The cost is incurred by every level of government. The federal government has the largest burden of cost.
Yes and no. Yes: Illegal immigrants take on jobs that few legal citizens want. They stabilize the Social Security system; because illegal immigrants can't claim Social Security benefits, all this money has been used to stabilize the system that without them, it would have crashed a decade ago. No: It demonstrates that the US immigration system does not work.
Predictions that provide benefits to communities can be inaccurate, resulting in less money for the community
To refer to illegal immigration as being "okay" is technically an oxymoron. The reason why it is illegal is because it isn't okay, maybe you meant more acceptable and the reason for that is because illegal immigrants perform cheap labor that Americans definitely do not want to do. If it weren't for illegal immigrants, the American capitalist would not be able to get things done for such a cheap cost therefor, cutting into his profits… Read More
Appearently you have to be illegal. Screw this economy...
Yes and it's also illegal too.
yea, but if they win a large amount of money, they can't claim it, unless someone who is legal does it for them.
because the united states cant pay for them every time. Not only that immigrants are taking our jobs. Which means we will be laid off. Then we wouldn't have money to buy the things we need.
some might say not. it actually depends on where they are working and where they came from. in some areas they get payed a lot but the people who do not get payed that much money for jobs compensate for the money.
Yes. Many illegal immigrants play the lottery, and when they win they usually ask a legal friend to cash out the money for them. They do this because they don't want to risk deportation, although it's totally legal for them to cash it out themselves even with an illegal status.
Because the process is expensive, *They are poor and lack of opportunities in their countries. The greed of Americans who want to make money off of illegal cheap labor stimulates the growth of the problem.
It should. It would give the state a little more money. Not to mention that it would reduce the number of illegal immigrants.
You can't do it unless you say its fake, or the government says you can. Simple as that. Otherwise its illegal. VERY ILLEGAL. (as long as you do it with the intent to try and buy something with it)
Yes it is. if the government cant make money, it is illegal to sell things. -yahoo.com

We have so many illegal immigrants being exploited every day. And like Martin King said, "injustice to one is injustice for all", if we allow a group of people to be exploited, it will open the door to further injustice to someone else. Just a few exploits that happen on a regular basis: Farmers hire immigrants to pick their crops. They pay illegal immigrants a miserable amount, and when they feel like saving some money… Read More

It is hard for illegal Mexican immigrants to get jobs. Mexican immigrants are often exploited in the US. Money is spent on policing the border, building fences and walls, employing immigration officials, etc. Increase of the workforce due to more people can lead to lower wages, particularly in non-skilled labour. Some Politicians are often eager to blame problems on immigrants, preventing people from finding the other causes of problems, particularly when there is an economic… Read More
Yes, immigrants to the US needed to be able to show that they were not paupers by showing they had money.
Yes, any kind of defacing to money is illegal.
Yes, they can, but some political groups for some reason prefer that illegal aliens get the same rights as Americans . . . who earn money to pay the illegals to survive in America and then take jobs - good jobs - that an American citizen should have first rights to. Why do they do this? Because many immigrants, especially Mexican immigrants, are Roman Catholics, and of course vote for the political party that gives… Read More
if the government finds out and proves it but so many people do it i think its almost impossible for them to catch anyone....
If they can provide proof of work or a job offer, we should give them visas. They are benefiting our economy if they are working (and of course buying our goods). Visas can be renewed, but after they expire the immigrants must return home. This way, we keep up our reputation of being somewhat humanitarian, but we make sure that the immigrants are not just doing nothing and costing us money.

Novelty companies make them from real coins. It is not illegal to make them, but it IS illegal to use them as money after they have been altered, so they are worthless as money, but they have a value as a novelty, usually a couple of dollars if you look on eBay.

Immigrants, especially the poorer ones, consume a high amount of government resources (health care, education, welfare, etc.) without paying their fair share of taxes. Our national identity and language is de-emphasizing. The great "melting pot" is being replaced by individual cultures, in other words illegal immigrants often stay with other illegal immigrants rather than embracing the American culture. The emigration to the United States hurts the home country, as much of the male population, workers… Read More
No. Although not illegal, it is unethical.
There was no specific amount of money required. The immigrants had to show that they had money to prove that they weren't paupers. The amount was left up to the discretion of the inspector.

Because the company that makes the beer wants to make money and also the government gave them rights. It should also be noted that alcohol was illegal in the United States from 1920 until 1933. The era was rife with illegal smuggling and distilling of spirits. Crime organizations make money on crime; and because alcohol had become illegal, they made even more money. This increased violence and law enforcement costs. Eventually the prohibition laws where… Read More
