Interesting to observe that immigration has not only harmed the USA by making it less wealthy by lowering per capita wages, but also by significantly increasing per capita taxes.
By 1965, the fiscal year Lyndon Johnson beat Barry Goldwater, the federal government collected about $116.817 billion in taxes from a population of about 194,302,963. That year federal taxes equaled about $601 per capita — or $4,578 in 2016 dollars.There can no longer be any doubt that mass immigration is not only an economic negative for a nation, but is severely destructive in multiple senses.
In fiscal 2016, according to OMB, the federal government collected about $3.268 trillion in taxes. That equaled about $10,114 for each of the 323,127,513 people in the country.
