A report from the Salt Lake Tribune reveals the extent to which illegal aliens cost the American taxpayer.
Gerardo Valerio-Romero, a 49-year-old illegal alien from Mexico, was arrested and charged with sexually abusing an eight-year-old girl who is a relative of his. While in the custody of Utah County, the illegal alien was diagnosed with cancer and began receiving treatment.
Salt Lake Tribune reporter Taylor Anderson noted how the illegal alien’s cancer treatment — funded by Utah taxpayers — is draining the county’s budget:
Valerio-Romero was previously convicted of a crime but was never deported out of the U.S. The country has an illegal alien population of about 12 million illegal aliens, costing American taxpayers about $116 billion every year.
Since Valerio-Romero’s medical bills started piling on, the county sheriff had to ask for “emergency budget help,” according to the Salt Lake Tribune.
