AND THUS ONE OF THE MAIN REASONS FOR THE TRUMP WAVE …
According to a Washington Examiner report, illegals get more in welfare than American families. According to a new report on the cost of immigration released Monday, illegal immigrant households receive an average of $5,692 in federal welfare benefits every year, far more than the average “native” American household, at $4,431. That’s $1,261 more for illegal families as opposed to American citizens. Honestly, its bad enough that they number is as high as it is for Americans, but what part of “illegals” am I missing?
It is exactly this type of nonsense that American people have grown weary over, especially that lies and non-action of establishment Republicans, as to the reason for the rise of Donald Trump. America has not only become a welfare state for Americans, but an even greater one for illegals.
Illegal immigrant households receive an average of $5,692 in federal welfare benefits every year, far more than the average “native” American household, at $4,431, according to a new report on the cost of immigration released Monday.
The Center for Immigration Studies, in an analysis of federal cost figures, found that all immigrant-headed households — legal and illegal — receive an average of $6,241 in welfare, 41 percent more than native households. As with Americans receiving benefits such as food stamps and cash, much of the welfare to immigrants supplements their low wage jobs.
The total cost is over $103 billion in welfare benefits to households headed by immigrants. A majority, 51 percent, of immigrant households receive some type of welfare compared to 30 percent of native households, said the analysis of Census data.
Immigrants receiving the most in the study of 2012 figures come from Mexico and Central America. Their average annual taxpayer funded welfare collection is $8,251, 86 percent higher than the benefits used by native households, said the report.
