Census Bureau Data: 63% of non-citizens are on welfare
A majority of “non-citizens,” including those with legal green card rights, are tapping into welfare programs set up to help poor and ailing Americans, Census Bureau data shows. In fact, 63 percent of non-citizens are using a welfare program. Moreover, instead of decreasing over time, the number grows to 70 percent for those here 10 years or more.... Paul Bedard has the details in this report for the Washington Examiner[https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/...n-citizens-on-welfare-4-6-million-households].... President Trump is trying to reduce the exploitation of our welfare system by immigrants. He has proposed new rules making it harder for prospective immigrants to qualify for lawful permanent residence — green cards — if they use or are likely to use U.S. welfare programs. But without a vigorous policy of deporting illegal immigrants, getting a green card might not strike some immigrants as worth having to forego welfare.... The 63 percent welfare-usage figure translates to 4,684,784 million non-citizen households receiving welfare. Nearly all of them, 4,370,385, have at least one worker in the house.
Anytime you choose to give things away will always draw a crowd. The original U.S. immigration policies were established to make sure THIS didn't happen. We have been corrupted by Progressive Marxist Socialist politicians who have an agenda where they are indifferent to how they affect a change in our society. Congress can fix this by passing a law that sends these people back where they came from. The "Deep State" must be defeated and made to comply with the laws of this land.
William the Impeached had to be dragged kicking and screaming to the table to sign welfare … The Obama administration, gave benefits to more people who weren't working as defined. Obama and his Progressive Marxist Socialist Democrat cohorts claimed the problem was that the current definitions at the time were too restrictive, and that loosening them would lead to more people getting jobs and being self-sufficient in the long run. W R O N G. Just as we saw and experienced for the next seven years. Now we also see that this largess was also extended to non-citizens. No welfare should be funded by the federal government for Non-Citizens.
