    The Cost of Welfare Use By Immigrant and Native Households

    In September 2015, the Center for Immigration Studies published a landmark study of immigration and welfare use, showing that 51 percent of immigrant-headed households used at least one federal welfare program — cash, food, housing, or medical care — compared to 30 percent of native households. Following similar methodology, this new study examines the dollar cost of that welfare use.

    • The average household headed by an immigrant (legal or illegal) costs taxpayers $6,234 in federal welfare benefits, which is 41 percent higher than the $4,431 received by the average native household.

    • The average immigrant household consumes 33 percent more cash welfare, 57 percent more food assistance, and 44 percent more Medicaid dollars than the average native household. Housing costs are about the same for both groups.

    • At $8,251, households headed by immigrants from Central America and Mexico have the highest welfare costs of any sending region — 86 percent higher than the costs of native households.

    • Illegal immigrant households cost an average of $5,692 (driven largely by the presence of U.S.-born children), while legal immigrant households cost $6,378.

    Immigrant households with a U.S. citizen child qualify for aid because of their child.

    If we allowed the parents to work legally, less aid would be needed for the children.



    But Trump is moving us in the opposite direction. Deporting productive, job-creating parents, which is pushing more U.S. citizen children onto welfare.

    Mr. Excalibur,

    Granted, this is just a personal observation, but I work close to the Oakland social security office. Every morning, I come in, there are lines of elderly, foreign looking people standing in line wait to get their chance to suck off the federal government.
    Thanks from syrenn

    Ms. Amelia,

    Or change the law that says that if you just happen to pop out a kid in the US, it's a citizen. You know, like every other country in the world.

    What's an immigrant household ? (Hint: ask a Native American before you provide a silly answer).
