    To think that is just a county...my gosh.

    Has anyone done anything on the overall cost in America and the total cost of illegals using the health care system?

    The cost of educating the children of illegal immigrants in the United States is estimated at $14.3 billion in 2010. An additional $1.2 billion is spent teaching them to speak English. The Cost Of Educating "Anchor Babies" In The USA

    Data on health care costs for illegal immigrants are sketchy because hospitals and community health centers don't ask about patients' legal status. In California, a 2004 study by the Federation for American Immigration Reform put the state's annual cost at $1.4 billion. Similar studies in Colorado and Minnesota in 2005 came up with much smaller estimates: $31 million and $17 million, respectively.

    In the meantime:

    Republican lawmakers are expressing shock over a Labor Department ad campaign that offers government assistance to illegal immigrants who think they're getting shortchanged for their work -- and at least one of them is planning to write to Labor Secretary Hilda Solis for an explanation.

    America wants to be a Third World Country. The American people must want to become impoverished otherwise they wouldn't allow this to happen. It quite simply is too late for America. We're passed the tipping point.

    We do not need to be educating illegal aliens, but sending them back. However, we can't let their children starve to death. They deserve food. So let's give them food. Set up a welfare office especially for illegal aliens, and advertise the hell out of it. When an illegal family walks through the door, give them all a sandwich, and send them out the back door to a bus waiting to take them back to Mexico. Bingo, the kids get food.

    Instead of complaining about welfare for illegals, how about getting rid of the welfare system completely. Our loose and constantly abused welfare system is one of the causes for illegal immigration.

    If it weren't for all the racists and xenophobes in America, it wouldn't be a problem to break the bank, footing the bill to feed a buncha illegal brats.

    meh, those evil rich greedy republican fat cats have plenty of cash to feed, house and clothe every dirtbag in america and then some.

    liberals love illegals because they know if and when at all possible they will vote democrat.

    The "children of illegal immigrants"? You mean people who were born in this country, and are therefore just as much American citizens as you or anyone else? Educating our young people is an investment, not a cost. The entire premise of your complaint stems from the notion that these American citizens are "the other" and somehow different from you. No one would ever complain about the cost of educating black people, or the cost of educating Jews. So why is it acceptable to do so with THIS group of American citizens?
