It is time for the state of Utah to do an in-depth analysis of the cost of illegal aliens to the taxpayers of Utah, including education, medical, resident college tuition rates, incarceration, general wage rate, income loss to displaced workers, welfare benefits — any and all costs associated with this illegality.

A legislative audit discovered 95,000 illegal aliens had been issued drivers' licenses and many voted in recent elections, resulting in the driver "privilege" card. Hopefully a cost study might result in similar restrictions on taxpayer-funded benefits to illegal residents.
