“According to the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, 68 million people around the world are or at risk of becoming refugees.

“There are always far more qualified applicants than HUD can serve at its existing funding level, but if the regulatory impact analysis (RIA) for a recent HUD proposed rule is to be believed, perhaps $210 million, or about 1 percent of program funds, are directed to “mixed” households with at least one individual who isn’t a United States citizen or eligible resident alien. The amount of HUD money that HUD itself estimates is going to 31,811 ineligible (“likely illegal resident”) individuals is $60.4 million each year.” Here.
Untaxed: Foreign-born workers send $150 billion a year to their home country, says study
Foreign-born workers are sending some $150 billion a year home in remittances to friends, family members and associates outside the United States, says a new study published by the Federation for American Immigration Reform, a nonpartisan public interest group.
Such remittances are generally not subjected to international money transfer taxes, or sales and excise taxes.
“Illegal aliens alone remit more than $28 billion annually. This $150 billion represents a direct loss to our economy, siphoning off valuable capital and reducing government revenues,” the nonprofit said in their study, which is based on an analysis of current U.S. Census and World Bank data.
In contrast, Americans residing abroad only sent home $6.5 billion in 2017. Here, from the Washington Times
More than 88 percent of non-citizen federal convicts who were sentenced last year are illegal aliens who had been living in the United States, a newly released Department of Justice (DOJ) report finds.
Nearly 30,000 non-citizens were sentenced last year for a myriad of federal crimes, data compiled by the United States Sentencing Commission (USSC) reveals, making up nearly 43 percent of all convicts who were sentenced between October 1, 2017, and September 30, 2018.
Of these nearly 30,000 non-citizen federal convicts sentenced last year, about 8-in-9 are illegal aliens who had been living in the U.S. after either crossing the U.S.-Mexico border or overstaying a visa.
