Yep, and Dims want to keep 'em rolling in.



According to a study from the Center for Immigration Studies, which analyzed the Census Bureau's Survey of Income and Program Participation (SIPP), 63% of non-citizen households in 2014 accessed welfare programs. The study states that “of non-citizens in Census Bureau data, roughly half are in the country illegally. Non-citizens also include long-term temporary visitors (e.g. guestworkers and foreign students) and permanent residents who have not naturalized (green card holders).”


In comparison to the 63% of non-citizen households that used at least one welfare program, 35% of native-headed households accessed at least one welfare program. 45% of non-citizen households used food programs; 21% of native households used them. 50% of non-citizen households used Medicaid as opposed to 23% of native households.



The study stated:


Welfare use is significantly higher for non-citizens than for natives in all four top immigrant-receiving states. In California, 72 percent of non-citizen-headed households use one or more welfare programs, compared to 35 percent for native-headed households. In Texas, the figures are 69 percent vs. 35 percent; in New York they are 53 percent vs. 38 percent; and in Florida, 56 percent of non-citizen-headed households use at least welfare program, compared to 35 percent of native households.​

In October, the Trump administration started targeting for deportation immigrants caught cheating on welfare. L. Francis Cissna, director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, stated, “What is new is that we are expanding the categories of people who are going to be receiving [notices to appear at deportation hearings] to, most principally, people who applied for a benefit and have no underlying lawful status … Starting today, Oct. 1, USCIS will begin implementing the updated NTA policy. Under the new guidance, USCIS officers will now issue an NTA for a wider range of cases where the individual is removable and there is evidence of fraud, criminal activity, or an applicant is denied an immigration benefit and is unlawfully present in the country.”

Yes, there is little doubt, the 'non-citizens' came here for the benefits. That may not be the whole story, as some of them do work and pay taxes, but 63% of them are draining the welfare system. We, the taxpayers are paying for this, so we have a right to be concerned.

1/3 of California collect welfare. Wouldn't it make our nation stronger if the 'non-citizens' came here like the previous generation of immigrants, who actually came here to make American stronger and better -- and they did.

Mr. Stan,

If they are welfare bums, yes. You are required to be self-sufficient to enter the country, a requirement that has fallen by the wayside.
So accepting assistance that one qualifes for makes you a bum? If so, what makes the native bums any better than the foreign born bums?

Wouldn't you rather low paying positions be filled by newcomers rather than the native born anyway?

Mr. Stan,

If you accept handouts, you are by definition, a bum. What makes American bums better is that they are Americans. This country should look out for it's own before some foreign bum.
