How much does each immigrant family actually cost us? At least £25,000 a year

We’ve had reports from the OECD, the EU and the (IMHO) grovelingly, sycophantic, self-serving Robert Chote’s ludicrously misnamed Office of Budget Responsibility telling us that immigration is good for the British economy and that immigrants contribute more to the country than they take in public services.

Of course, these reports are total garbage designed to cover up the fact that our governments have handed over control of our borders and our benefits system to a corrupt Communist (Barroso) from completely bankrupt paedophile paradise Portugal.

So let me try to work out how much a immigrant family “contributes”.

I’ll take a family with 3 children. Let’s assume the man takes a low-paid job earning £15,000 a year in a supermarket or warehouse. He’ll be paying around £1,500 a year in tax and NI. That’s the family’s total contribution.

Now let’s see what they get for their £1,500 a year:

First there’s Child Benefit. You get £20.30 a week for the oldest one and £13.40 a week for the other two. That’s £47.10 a week – £2,449.20 per year. So, this family is already costing almost twice what it contributes.

Then there’s schooling for the children. At around £3,300 per child, that’s another £9,900 a year.

There’s healthcare. The NHS costs us about £105bn a year which works out at around £1,600 for each person in Britain. For this family of 5, there’s another £8,000 a year. Most immigrants come from countries with pretty dreadful or even non-existent health services. They think they’re in healthcare paradise when they reach Britain and tend to make greater use of the NHS than British citizens. So, the real cost will probably be well above the £8,000 a year.

For a contribution of a mere £1,500 a year, this family is getting at least £20,349 in hand-outs and services.

Because the man is only earning £15,000 a year, I believe he will also get all kinds of tax credits and help to pay for a home and other benefits. But I haven’t got the exact figures for these yet. And there are other services like policing, social services, free schools meals and much more.

So, the idea that an immigrant family with one, two or even three children actually contributes to our economy is laughable. They cost us money – an awful lot of money. And they are overloading our services such as the NHS and schools.

But should the immigrant family decide not to work – like most of Britain’s Somalis and at least 400,000 EU citizens – well, here are all the benefits to which they’re entitled:

  • Attendance Allowance
  • Child Benefit
  • Council Tax Benefit
  • Disability Living Allowance 
  • Guardian’s Allowance
  • Housing Benefit
  • Income Support
  • Income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance
  • Industrial Injuries Disablement Benefit
  • Carer’s allowance
  • Reduced Earnings Allowance
  • Severe Disablement Allowance
  • Statutory Sick Pay

I did a quick, back-of-a-fag-packet calculation and reckon that we’re paying at least £20bn a year in benefits to unemployed immigrants.

So, have five million immigrants been good for Britain? Ummm – not really, whatever our lying leaders claim.

  • Paris Claims

    A lot of muslim immigrants are self employed, take away owners, taxi drivers etc. Cash businesses, claim to make a pittance, probably pay no income tax. Many will work in fast food dumps for cash in hand. Anyone who believes that the rubbish that has washed up upon our shores in the last generation or so makes a net contribution to the economy is brain dead or delusional. Anyone who makes that claim is a nation wrecking traitor and needs stringing up

  • Postkey

    “Unemployment among ethnic minorities costs the economy almost £8.6 billion a year in benefits and lost revenue from taxes. Half of Muslim men and three quarters of Muslim women are unemployed.”

    The true cost of this is actually MUCH higher. How? What nobody seems to have pointed out in any debate is that for every immigrant here ‘working’ we are actually paying out TWO sets of benefits. Firstly a ‘working’ immigrant is receiving thousands a year in housing benefit, council tax benefit, child tax credits, working tax credits etc etc. This immigrant is taking a job from an indigenous Briton so this Briton will also receive job seekers allowance, housing benefit, council tax benefit, child tax credits etc etc. So one ‘working’ immigrant, two sets of benefits. I’d really love to know how the hell this benefits Britain?

  • Richard Rogers

    At the last count there were over 600,000 EU migrants,asylum seekers and their families in the whole of the UK claiming free social housing, free healthcare, job seekers allowance and all the other top up tax credits and benefits they are supposedly entitled to under EU law, all off the backs of the Great British taxpayers and not one of them has ever paid a penny into the system!
