Are you willing to increase taxes to pay for it? Note: that doesn't even count the hit to the economy when all the work they do stops getting done.

Math problems. I love these.
Approximately $39B/year is spent on education for illegal's children, or $195B over five years. So $285B - $195B = $90B
Uncompensated medical care provided for illegals is estimated at 30% of total uncompensated care given. Uncompensated care is about $50B a year so that's another $15B a year or $75B. So take the $90B - $75B = $15B.
Now let's turn to the prison system. Quickest estimated I found was $5.8B per year for prison systems at the federal level. So take $15B - $29B = $14B savings.
Just think, I haven't even mentioned car insurance, Medicare and S.S., unemployment of American citizens and the benefits they are on, lost revenue of legal immigration and citizenship, or any of the other scoial safety net services illegals depend on. So yeah go ahead and pay me my portion of the savings by deporting these illegals. I'll be waiting for my check.
