Figures from the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services show that the number of illeal immigrants seeking asylum in the United States has skyrocketed in recent years.

Figures show that this 900% increase in the last 10 years is costing taxpayers large sums of money since there is greater population in the United States receiving Social Security benefits, school loans, green cards, welfare, etc.

According to a projection from the Center for Immigration Studies, approximately 8000 people who are mostly Latin Americans sought asylum in 2009, this number has increased significantly and is projected to reach over 80,000 this year.

The report shows that 80 percent of the people are coming from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras and fulfill the U.S. asylum requirement by stating that they fear torture, abuse, or retaliation.

Jessica M. Vaughan, the USCIS director of policy studies, said many of the people claiming asylum are paying fees to human traffickers to be brought through Mexico and into to the U.S.
