A report released Monday by the U.S. House Homeland Security Committee says the influx of migrants across the country’s southern border could cost taxpayers $451 billion.
The fourth report released by the committee says that the tab includes housing, education, property damage done by migrants, law enforcement, and health care costs.
A report from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services showed that “emergency services for undocumented aliens” added up to $7 billion in fiscal 2021 and $5.4 billion in fiscal 2022, with migrants receiving at least $8 billion in improper Medicaid payouts (10% of the nation’s total of $80 billion).
Migrants are also putting a strain on the nation’s criminal justice infrastructure, with the cost adding up to $8.95 billion in fiscal 2022.
