Democrat’s Narrative On “Non-Citizens” Not Getting Welfare Assistance Shattered By Horrifying New Study From Center For Immigration Studies: 63% Of Illegals Use Welfare Programs

Among the findings in a new study released on Sunday by the Center for Immigration Studies were:

In 2014,  63 percent of households headed by a non-citizen reported that they used at least one welfare program.

Non-citizen households access food programs and Medicaid at more than twice the rate of native households.

While most new legal immigrants (green card holders) are barred from most welfare programs, as are illegal immigrants and temporary visitors, these provisions have only a modest impact on non-citizen household use rates because: 1) most legal immigrants have been in the country long enough to qualify; 2) the bar does not apply to all programs, nor does it always apply to non-citizen children; 3) some states provide welfare to new immigrants on their own; and, most importantly, 4) non-citizens (including illegal immigrants) can receive benefits on behalf of their U.S.-born children who are awarded U.S. citizenship and full welfare eligibility at birth.

Any earlier study by Steven A. Camarota, research director at the Center for Immigration Studies found that the current population of illegal immigrants will drain nearly $750 billion from taxpayers over their lifetimes.

That study was from August of 2017 and was based on an estimated population of 11 million illegal immigrants.  Since then estimates have at least doubled and may be as high as 33 million illegal migrants.

Do the math.  We are $21 trillion in debt and counting.  It’s well past time to ask the open borders crowd just how much they’re prepared to mortgage their neighbors jobs and their children’s futures for lower cost domestic labor?

President Trump recognizes the insanity of our current immigration policy.  That is what’s behind his common sense appeal for a simple border wall.

Rather than bitch against the Wall and dismiss it out of hand, how about giving us a better alternative?  Perhaps opponents can start by explaining why they lock their front doors.

  1. The one avenue of access NOT mentioned here is the rising incidence of ID theft which enables access to all benefits intended for citizens, and which are used for exactly that purpose: to access welfare benefits!

  2. Why isnt there a public uproar about the welfare cost for illegals vs. the cost of building the Wall? The nation saves a lot of money every year by having a wall in place.

    • Because the Libtard Left-Wing loons do NOT care and the Lame Stream Media, including major TV and radio outlets will NOT publish this information!! America is in serious trouble and it is only going to get worse!! A 2nd American revolution is not too far away – if this “madness” is alowed to continue!!

  3. truth about cost of yearly “illegal” immigrants should be shouted from rooftops! we don’t see total cost on tv, hear on radio, headline stories in national newspapers & magazines! we have AMERICANS going without medical care, no food, living in streets & they can’t get help BUT these people that have no right to be here are given food, medical care, housing, jobs, education! this has to STOP! we have to stop supporting countries that HATE us & take care of our own! send US Military to our borders to protect us from this “ILLEGAL INVASION”!
