Later this week, the U.S. Supreme Court is considering whether the 2020 U.S. Census’s question over citizenship status is constitutional.
Mass migration advocates worry that adding a citizenship question to the census would undercount 6.5 million people. Their concerns center around both political power and federal funding for states.
According to a Fox News report, advocates of border security argue that mass migration is costing American taxpayers a hefty sum of money
Dan Stein, the director of the Federation for American Immigration Reform, says “We’re talking about billions of dollars in taxpayer benefits over the next few years.”
Stein argues that “The payout for the taxpayer is enormous and income to the Treasury is miniscule.”
A study that FAIR conducted in 2017 found that illegal immigrants “are a net consumer of taxpayer benefits worth more than $100 billion a year, not including the cost of enforcing the border.”
In theory, federal benefits are supposed to be off limits to illegal immigrants. However, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development reports that more than 25,000 illegal immigrants receive subsidized housing. Children also receive free education and most of them qualify for English lessons and school lunch programs.
Under federal law, hospital and clinics are forced to provide urgent care to anyone regardless of their legal status.
Pregnant women are also able to receive prenatal and postpartum care through the Women, Infants and Children program. Medicaid pays for infant delivery costs.
A Journal of the American Medical Association study discovered that a federal-state immigrant insurance program costs $2 billion annually in emergency treatments. On top of that, infant delivery expenses totaled $1.24 billion.
Although illegal immigrants can’t receive food stamps, their children, through birthright citizenship, can. The Center for Immigration Studies found that 31 percent of these families use the SNAP program and more than 50 percent of Central American families are on at least one welfare program.
BLP reported that migrant crossings are on the verge of exceeding Bush-era levels.
Taking all these factors into consideration, GOP voters see immigration as the #1 issue during the 2020 elections.
With border crossings on the rise, immigration will continue to be a hot-button issue in American politics.
Florida Senator Moving to Designate “Donald J. Trump Highway” in Honor of 45th President
One of the greatest presidents in American history.
Florida State Senator Anthony Sabatini will move to rename a highway in the state “Donald J. Trump Highway,” in honor of the 45th President.
Sabatini made the announcement in a tweet on Tuesday. US 27 ultimately travels from Miami, Florida, to Fort Wayne, Indiana, traversing the United States from south to north. The segment located in Florida would be renamed after Trump in Sabatini’s proposal.
This legislative session I will be sponsoring an amendment to rename U.S. Highway 27 as the “President Donald J. Trump Highway.” Looking forward to working on this important designation honoring one of the greatest Presidents in American History. pic.twitter.com/x2gNzv8pxv

Public infrastructure is increasingly named after Presidents while they’re in office or shortly after their departure. Several schools and highways have been named after former President Barack Obama less than five years after his departure from office. Every President in recent American history has received a highway named in his honor, usually after leaving office.
Republicans have strong majorities in both of the Florida House of Representatives and Senate, ensuring a strong chance that Sabatini’s highway proposal will ultimately succeed and become law.
President Trump is the first President in history from Florida, having changed his state of residency from New York to the southern state during his term in office. The President is slated to begin his post-presidency life by returning to the state on Wednesday, where it’s expected that he’ll reside at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach.
