A new study by the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) found illegal immigration costs governments $113 billion a year.
Taxes paid by illegal aliens amount to roughly $13 billion a year, but the study noted that this figure could be higher if more of them paid taxes.
Arizona’s annual cost of illegal immigration is $2.5 billion a year, according to the study.
FAIR advocates for restrictions on immigration.
