What do refugee criminals cost taxpayers?

It is a question I have asked many times over the years!

Whenever I see a news story with some glowing report about how refugees financially benefit the communities in which they are placed, I suspect that all the costs to society are never calculated. 

For instance….

Costs like remittance dollars sent out of the US economy (a story for another day!)? Cost of interpreters for myriad obscure languages? Complete cost of educating the children? Costs associated with elderly and infirm refugees? And, the cost of crime, of courts, of prison time!


High security federal prison, Victorville, in California where an Uzbek refugee attempted to murder the prison warden!


We have had a bunch of refugee crime stories lately including the Iraqi alleged terrorist found living in California, the Iraqi who shot a police officer in the head in Colorado, the Uzbek sentenced for trying to kill the prison warden, the Ethiopian alleged human rights abuser arrested in Virginia last week, and see today’s more detailed story about the Arizona Somalis who lied to get in to the US. (All those and 2,000 more stories are posted in my Crimes category.)

Someone with accounting and financial skills needs to put some time in to researching the costs to the US taxpayer of refugee criminals in America.

Thanks to reader ‘Thetinfoilhatsociety’ for sending us the annual average cost to taxpayers in each state for incarceration of convicted criminals.

The list, here, is a few years old, but it is very useful and I’ll be archiving it in my ‘Where to find information’ category for future reference.

State by state: How much does it cost to keep someone in prison?

Let’s talk about California and Fazliddin Kurbanov….

#6. California

Average Annual Cost Per Inmate: $47,421


Uzbek refugee, Kurbanov, has been sentenced to two consecutive sentences of 25 and 20 years (see my post Saturday).

It is possible that his cost of incarceration is higher than the average for California because I doubt he is kept in the general prison population. And, it is likely that federal prisons are even more costly.

If my math is correct (you better check it!) he will cost taxpayers at minimum over $2 million just for his prison time.  That doesn’t include the cost of his two trials.

I’ve always thought it would be fun to see a law which requires the US State Department to pay for the state costs of refugee criminals they placed in your towns and cities.  Of course, you, the taxpayers would still bear the tax burden, but it might make the feds more careful about who they are admitting to the US!

Do this….

So please, the next time your local paper runs a story from the likes of ‘Welcoming America about the economic benefits refugees bring to your town, write a letter-to-the- editor and ask if all of the COSTS have been calculated!  You needn’t do any math, simply ask if remittances are in the study, education of kids, medical care costs to taxpayers, and the cost to the criminal justice system, to name a few, are included.

  1. It is draining us dry, we are a mere carcass after ll the handouts to masses who hate us. Dumbest idea I ever heard of, never could have predicted this insanity. To try to calculate only makes one intensely depressed, angry, and more aware of the rape of each and every one of us 24/7 by our own government. Sickos!


  2. WOW! I pulled up what each state spends and I saw that John Legend sang at a Washington State Women’s correctional facility (EYE ROLL, I live in WA State!) Anyways, the cost of this is RIDICULOUS! I am sorry but Why should WE have to pay for their education, TV, & extras they get on the “inside”?
    On a side note I did a deep dive on a gentleman who was accused of being a white supremacists here in the Pacific Northwest (he wasn’t at all, he was a product of our failed system, mental health, repeat offender, ect.) I am IN NO WAY making excuses for the crimes he committed, but the Mayor in Portland’s false statements & accusations has led to MORE dangerous crimes & racial tensions. The point I am getting at is WE CAN’T EVEN HELP or ADMIT when our OWN CITIZENS have problems & we allow refugees in like the Iraqee in Colorado & even a man you posted about HERE in WA state not long ago, there was also that man in Portland who was deported 20 times last summer & raped 2 woman in broad daylight! When is this going to stop!
    I commented on another post about living in Colorado & how it was DESTROYED by illegal immigration, now I live in the Pacific NorthWest & in the 13 years I have lived here I am seeing the same thing happen & it breaks my heart!
    I share every single one of your posts, Just so you know your site is blocked on Pinterest – But I also use Flipboard & they seem to be pretty open as far as not blocking or taking anything down. I also share everything on Gab & in another research group I am in (and I do mean EVERY SINGLE post).
    Thank you again!


  3. Far worse than the cost of these Alien cretins are the traitors in government , Big Corp, Big Bank and Big Media who perpetuate this deliberate, intentional massive invasion of our country by Alien, primitive, Neolithic, chaotic and mostly violent cultures whose core beliefs, values, morals and no knowledge of what it means to live in a civil society, All of which are inimical to the America that the hundreds of thousands of our ancestors died(and are still dying) on bloody battlefields throughout the world to preserve and the Citizens want to maintain in their honor.

    It has taken Western Civilization, of which America is a preeminent example, the focal point, 2000 years of battling with the proper balance of Government and freedom and who finally came to a reasonable, livable balance between the two to establish a workable civil society. Now the traitors who walk among us, many in the very government whose fundamental lawful duty is to preserve our Culture and our civil way of life are destroying our heritage by promoting a massive unchecked invasion of our country by alien powers. What did one of our imposter(a person who pretends to be someone else in order to deceive others) “leaders” say, “…fundamentally transform America…. ” Those are the words of a traitor. When ones eyes turn to and put foreign interests and foreign people ahead of and instead of upon the Citizens then that is an act of a traitor, and should be labelled as such. But who is going to prosecute the traitors in government?

    “A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at
    the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those
    within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself.
    For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.”

    Marcus Tullius Cicero
