Welfare State: More Than 70% of California’s Immigrant Households Use Government Assistance
A new study by the Center for Immigration Studies has revealed that seven out of 10 immigrant families in California use welfare, according to Breitbart.
“The latest Census Bureau data analyzed by the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) finds that about 72 percent of households headed by noncitizens and immigrants use one or more forms of taxpayer-funded welfare programs in California — the number one immigrant-receiving state in the U.S.,” the report said.
Only 35 percent of households headed by native born Americans use such assistance.
According to the report, the four states with largest immigrant populations have high rates of taxpayer-funded welfare usage. Texas’ numbers are almost identical to California’s for immigrant and native-born welfare usage, and in New York and Florida, about 63 percent of immigrant-headed households use welfare while 35 percent of native-born households use welfare.
The article said that President Donald J. Trump could soon put an end to the madness.
“President Trump’s administration is looking to soon implement a policy that protects American taxpayers’ dollars from funding the mass importation of welfare-dependent foreign nationals by enforcing a ‘public charge’ rule whereby legal immigrants would be less likely to secure a permanent residency in the U.S. if they have used any forms of welfare in the past, including using Obamacare, food stamps, and public housing,” according to the report.
That would be a breath of America First fresh air.
Meanwhile, Trump has been bucking for his big, beautiful wall on the Southern Border, and might even allow a government shutdown if Congress cannot agree to fund the beast.
“We would save Billions of Dollars if the Democrats would give us the votes to build the Wall. Either way, people will NOT be allowed into our Country illegally! We will close the entire Southern Border if necessary. Also, STOP THE DRUGS!” he said on Twitter.
