Reparations For Illegal Aliens May Cost Americans Up To $2.2 Trillion

(Breitbart) – Providing reparations to 11 to 22 million illegal aliens — as South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg has said he supports — could potentially cost American taxpayers up to $2.2 trillion.

In a 2014 analysis by The Nation, Columbia University economist Suresh Naidu estimated that reparations could cost anywhere between $22,000 to $101,000 per illegal alien. Those costs are based on depressed and lost wages for illegal aliens taking American jobs in the workforce.

The largest estimate, in which $101,000 is given to every illegal alien, would mean American taxpayers are forced to pay $2.2 trillion for illegal alien reparations.

Should only reparations be given to the roughly eight million illegal aliens who are estimated to be in the U.S. workforce, American taxpayers would be billed about $808 billion.

During the PBS/Politico Democrat debate on Thursday evening, Buttigieg vowed to provide reparations to millions of illegal aliens in the U.S. — a plan that has been floated by the open borders lobby.

Flashback: Joe Biden Vows To Give Taxpayer-Funded Obamacare To All Illegal Aliens In U.S.

Former Vice President and 2020 Democrat presidential primary candidate Joe Biden is vowing to give Obamacare, funded by American taxpayers, to all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States.

During an interview with Telemundo’s Jose Diaz-Balart, Biden forgot that Obamacare technically bans illegal aliens from enrolling in healthcare plans — although illegal aliens are still able to obtain subsidized and free healthcare at Americans’ expense — and promised that under his plan, all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens would be able to get Obamacare.

The exchange went as follows:

DIAZ-BALART: When I … NBC moderated that first debate with you, I didn’t … I don’t recall a clear answer, under your plan should … would the 11, 12 million undocumented immigrants that live in the United States, that have been here many for generations, would they have access …


DIAZ-BALART: — to health insurance.

BIDEN: Yes, they … if they can buy into the system like everybody else.

DIAZ-BALART: Because you know, in [Obamacare] they can’t.

BIDEN: Yeah. Yeah, I know. Well they can, that’s my point. They continue to be able to do that.

DIAN-BALART: They cannot under the ObamaCare.

BIDEN: Well and that’s my point, they will though. They will be able to buy into … [illegal aliens] would be able to buy in, just like anyone else could.

Biden joins Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg — among other 2020 Democrats — in committing to forcing American taxpayers to pay for healthcare for illegal aliens who arrive in the U.S.

Already, due to loopholes, American taxpayers are spending nearly $20 billion every year to provide illegal aliens with subsidized healthcare, emergency room visits, and other health services.

Under the 2020 Democrats’ plan to provide taxpayer-funded healthcare to all illegal aliens living in the U.S., Americans would be billed potentially $660 billion every decade just to cover the costs. Other research has found that the plan would cost Americans at least $23 billion every year.

As Breitbart News has reported, experts have said that giving taxpayer-funded healthcare to effectively all foreign nationals who can make it to America’s borders would drive “strong incentives for people with serious health problems to enter the country or remain longer than their visas allow in order to get government-funded care.”

Despite 2020 Democrats’ continued push for taxpayer-funded healthcare for illegal aliens, American voters are overwhelmingly opposed to the plan. The latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey revealed that the healthcare-for-illegal-aliens plan is the least popular policy position, with opposition from 62 percent of U.S. voters.

Similarly, a CNN poll from July discovered that 63 percent of likely swing voters oppose providing healthcare to illegal aliens, along with nearly 6-in-10 of all likely U.S. voters and 61 percent of moderates. A Rasmussen Reports survey also found that likely voters, by a majority of 55 percent, oppose giving healthcare to even the most low-income illegal aliens.


  1. we OWE these people NOTHING but a free one way ticket back to wherever they came from & take their children, grandchildren ALL with them! this has to go! we don’t owe them even a ticket but it’s Christmas & I’m in a giving spirit! America has to STOP all of this nonsense! people that want to come to America have to do it LEGALLY! “ILLEGAL” immigrants means they are in this country ILLEGALLY! they’re breaking laws of this country by being here & they’re demand RIGHTS! they have no rights! we have to take care of AMERICANS! no “birthright” citizenship & no “chain” migration! we have to clean up America! rest of the world needs to take care of themselves! no other country wants to take care of America! all these countries WANT from us & GIVE us NOTHING in return!

  2. actually its the TAX-PAYERS that should get the 100,000.oo DOLLAR reparation check from each ILLEGAL to cover the TAX-PAYERS COST OF WELFARE, HEALTHCARE and HOUSING already received as well as past due TAXES due to INCOME TAX EVASION
    and WELFARE FRAUD from collecting welfare while employed for CASH !

  3. Buttigieg is stupid and insane and Illegal aliens or immigrants don’t deserve one red cent from the USA. Whoever thought up this reparations bullshit is Super Stupid

  4. I feel the true traitors and enemy of the state are the Democrats their propagandists (the media) and those that believe their lies and blindly vote for them.

  5. reparations really? What about the taxes they never paid? What about the free health care they get just by walking into any hospital emergency room and never even think about paying the bill…..what about the other dozens of freebies they get just for being here? What about the displaced american citizens that lost their job because these people come here and work “off the books” again not paying taxes…… about you take your reparations and shove them up your a$$!!!!

    • I agree! it’s time to look & check up on these “illegal” & see if they’ve received any form of government assistance & if they have let them “pay” reparations for that! they’ll high tail it so fast out of country it’ll take years to clean up all the fallout!

  6. What did Buttliug smoke? Wouldn’t it cheaper to deport his a*s to no man’s land. Where does this butt hole think the money going to come from?

  7. I personally don’t owe and illegal alien a damn thing. I didn’t force them to come over here, didn’t hold a gun to their head, CRAP WAKE UP AMERICA.

  8. Wow ! I didn’t know that buttplug’s pockets were that deep. If he reaches into MY pocket to pay for that, he’ll withdraw a bloody stump. Never happen (in my lifetime), of course. But falling asleep in ones watch over freedom is treason in itself. Those challenging the guard posts deserve death by firing squad. I volunteer to use a slingshot and a LOT of BBs. [I’ll coat them with something like ghost pepper sauce]

  9. Don’t underestimate what these radical Democrats are up to. They have mega dollars behind them and this is not a game to them. You may not think any of these crazy ideas will come to pass but it really can eventually sway the election results some day. Please take some time and watch Glenn Beck’s Youtube video, The Democrat Hydra, and it will be clearer why Democrats continue to act the way they do. It is intentional and it is dangerous. Bold Republican politicians know, the Dems are not going to stop, even after the impeachment fiasco is over. There are still millions of other US citizens that WE need to reach so the 2020 election is a landslide for Republicans.

  10. These ideas, are some of the most INSANE ever ! Just WHY, would we even CONSIDER
    paying “Reparations” to Illegal aliens ? Another truly ridiculous idea is to give “Obama Care” to every Illegal alien. The ideas put forth by these Dems are some of the WORST ideas ever ! Our ONLY hope for our future is to re elect Donald Trump, who is not “Perfect”, but FAR better then putting any of these crazy Democrats in office !

  11. Any one even suggesting such a thing needs to be removed from office asap!!!
    Illegals deserve NOTHING! They are criminals and should be treated as such and removed from the USA. It is high time we take care of our US Citizens poor and elderly and get our Social Security repaid not ILLEGALS. Where are our brains we are the USA and we should be #1 and treat us first. I am tired of this giving our tax dollars to illegals and countries who hate us but they take our money. Democrats are no longer American but anti Americans they can pack their pathetic evil body’s up and move to Iran where they can indulge in their evil ways and learn how it is when they have their heads cut off and burned live in a cage and stoned to death for trying to tell them how to live and spend their money. We are fools to allow any elected official to give away our tax dollars to any illegals or any country and people who hate us. We are fools to have allowed Pelosi Schiff to perform a false/ fake impeachment scam. Democrats should be removed from our halls of Congress. Fools we are for allowing such ignorance to exist in our government and to allow anyone to spend our money on outsiders illegals welfare as it exist this day.. We should demand ALL persons wanting to run as and elected official must take a year of schooling on the Federalist papers and the Constitution and history of how and what this nation was founded on. True US History. Must pass the test if you flunk it’s a no go. Pathetic we have people in congress who have no knowledge of what and how the federalist papers were used to create the greatest document ever to be written. Goes to show us what liberals have done to our education system which needs to be completely destroyed and created from the ground up as it should be, as our forefathers created or intended it to be.

  12. DEMS,You really are a bunch of fools, They have already been given everything including entry into this country which is worth a lot more than you think, they get everything on a platter.

  13. Democrats are insane! What idiot thinks that when someone breaks into your house that you give them money? Insane! Thankfully, Trump will win and these retards can give them their own money if they think they deserve it..

  14. Reparations? Really? For what? Entering our country illegally? Relatives of former slaves have a better chance of getting reparations. And even that is slim to none. I’m not going to fret over this one. Just another very bad idea from thee lefties!

    • We need some sanity in these situations. Rather than paying these people I would rather see them all sent back home and pay those expenses. In the meantime we should discontinue giving them free access to hospital treatment which they would not get back home. How do we wind up in these situations? I guess it is by electing people who get their election strength from being a champion of the poor, legal and illegal, the uneducated by choice or otherwise, the lazy or entitled as well as those that cheat the system to get subsidies. We could also help with prison over crowding by sending the illegals there back to where they belong and passing laws that illegals caught in the future will be held for a period certain in a situation where they are uncomfortable without regard to inhumane treatment.

    WHY DO WE AS CITIZENS HAVE TO WORK FOR ILLEGALS? BTW….. THERE ARE NOT 11-22 MILLION ILLEGALS……THERE NOW HAS TO BE ABOUT 50-60 MILLION. I worked with a national Detention Center company 14 year ago. They told me at that time there were about 35 Million!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  16. Give them what they really deserve, a free trip back to where they came from. You don’t get to sneak into this Country and get rewarded for it. Democrats are so desperate for new voters that they are willing to sell out this Country to get them.

    • Dems tend to be proponents of these that need the most help even when they are here illegally. I guess they feel that other voters will not buy their BS policies of big spending and more government.

  17. Reparations for what? They came here contrary to the laws enacted by Congress.
    Only ‘reparations” they should get is one way transportation to the nearest border.

  18. YA just what the US needs….more illegals…more uneducated, disease ridden, low IQ, breed like rats citizens, leaf blower operators, fruit pickers, maids and dish washers!! NO WAY!!

  19. Liberals, like buttplug, love to gove other people’s money away to undeserving people, whether they be illegals or coloreds!!
