To determine the fraction of the FY2007 total costs that can be attributed to undocumented immigrants, we use the FY2007 daily stats provided by Kraig Troxell, in which he stated, “As of the time of the report, out of 461 inmates in the Adult Detention Center (ADC), 15 had ICE detainers.” This figure also corresponds with new data received at the time of this posting. This means that on a daily basis about 3.25% of the prison population is undocumented. Taking 3.25% of the $10 Million FY2007 results in an actual cost of $325,000. - Loudoun ForceThe calculations done here last week estimated that the undocumented migrant population of Loudoun was around 3.2%. And now there is evidence that 3.25% of the prison population is undocumented. This is compelling evidence that immigration is not a critical issue to Loudoun County's future, but merely a scare tactic in a time when the Republican leadership is out of ideas.
If you look at each and every one of the reasons that people believe migrants are hurting the U.S. you'll find that there is are much more effective ways to make a difference than kicking out migrants. It just so happens that it's easy to blame migrants. A migrant is a voiceless other. It's easy to take out your frustration on an enemy because it stops you from taking a long hard look at yourself. - Immigration Orange
