How the HELL did we miss this?!
The information has been available for months according to the sources in question and yet, you’re not going to hear about it on CNN. And yes, the word “scandal” is absolutely warranted as we are talking about ILLEGAL individuals receiving benefits.
Frankly, this is even more shocking than hearing about Barack Obama targeting red states with his sick immigration plan.
It ranks right up there with the $2.6 billion this country wasted on food stamps for minors and dead people. At the bare minimum, we thought we were talking about American citizens when revealing these numbers.
After all, if we understand the word “illegal” correctly, they shouldn’t be getting ANY money. Correct?
Well, wait: As per a Washington Examiner report released last year (which has mysteriously been swept under the rug since), we find that illegals are not only receiving plenty of benefits, they’re receiving far MORE benefits than American citizens!
These numbers are just downright disgusting, so brace yourself:
“lllegal 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.”
Yes, seriously. Those numbers are accurate.
You know, it’s a damn good thing President Donald Trump just earned a tremendous decision thanks to a common-sense federal judge. Clearly, something desperately needs to be done.
Bear one thing in mind, people:
We’re not talking about struggling LEGAL immigrants who came to this country on a whim and a prayer, like so many of our ancestors. No, these people are here illegally and they are, in point of fact, stealing our money.
There is no other term to use. Which is why all this has to stop. Like, now.
