American taxpayers will likely save about $1,600 a year per immigrant with President Trump’s ban on welfare-dependent legal immigrants being allowed to resettle permanently in the United States.
Next month the Trump administration is set to roll out a plan that bans foreign nationals who need welfare in order to be able to resettle in the U.S. A ban like this on welfare importation through immigration has been on the Trump White House’s radar since February.
Throughout our history immigrants coming to the United States have had to have a sponsor and prove that they could support themselves. Now, the American taxpayer is expected to support them. No más!
Welfare was created to help American citizens who have fallen on hard times, to help them during the time they spend trying to get back on their feet. Now, thanks to liberal politicians, welfare is seen as an entitlement. Well, no más!
This plan would be a huge benefit to already-overtaxed Americans who are currently paying about $57.4 billion a year on welfare, crime, and schooling costs for the mass importation of 1.5 million new legal immigrants every year, most of which are low-skilled. We have imported over 10 million foreign nationals over the last decade, thanks in large part to Obama administration policies, and we will bring in the same number of needy people in the next decade if something isn’t done to change legal immigration policies.
Why should Americans citizens have to pay for people, who obviously can’t support themselves, to resettle in the United States? Where is it written that the American taxpayer owes foreign nationals a living?
According to a report by the National Academies of Science released two years ago, American taxpayers are hit with a $1,600 bill each year for every immigrant who needs welfare. Immigrant households consume 33 percent more cash welfare than American citizens!
Trump’s actions to end this expensive burden for mass legal immigration from poor countries would be an annual tax cut for American taxpayers.
Immigrant households, both legal and illegal, use close to 60 percent more food stamps funded by taxpayers than native born Americans, according to a study conducted by the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) revealed in 2016.
Harvard University economist George Borjas says the country’s decades of importation of more than 1.5 million legal immigrants every year is the world’s “largest anti-poverty program” that comes at the expense of American citizens who are forced to subsidize the cost.
“Since 1965, we have admitted a lot of low-skilled immigrants, and one way to view that policy is that we were running basically the largest anti-poverty program in the world. That is actually not a bad thing at all,” Borjas said in an interview last year. “Except someone is going to have to pay the cost for that.”
Donald Trump seems to be the only politician in the D.C. swamp who is trying to get a handle on immigration laws, which have been abused and politicized at the expense of the American citizen. Expect howls from moonbat liberals and progressive Democrats who don’t give a flying fig about welfare-ridden immigrants costing the American taxpayer a fortune of money each year, as much as garnering their votes in future elections.
This is the same thing. I don’t think that as a country we should make a habit of offering a handout to everyone that comes to our door, and then allowing those individuals to continue to receive those handouts, sometimes for years.
A message from David…
You know, I’m all for helping out a fellow friend in need… I understand sometimes we all find ourselves in a place or position where we truly need a helping hand from a friend. I’ve been in that place many times myself, and was so thankful that I had a true friend to help me in those times of need. But I don’t think this is the same thing. I don’t think that as a country we should make a habit of offering handouts to everyone that comes to our door, and then allowing those individuals to continue to receive those handouts, sometimes for years.
It would be kinda like if I had a friend that was willing to help people out with free food, free clothing, and free shelter, and word traveled fast that my friend had a big nice house with lots of rooms, lots of food, and loved to take people shopping for clothes. Pretty soon he would have an endless line of people at his front door.
The problem is, he doesn’t have an endless supply of money to support all of these people and their needs. The other problem is that his own family still lives inside his home. And now his own family is having to fight for food, and having to find places in their own home to sleep without being corralled in with strangers. Eventually, his family might wind up even having to spend their own hard-earned money just to put food on the table for complete strangers to eat. Well…call that home the United States of America, and the family are legal US citizens. When there are veterans that have fought, bled, and lost limbs for our country that are homeless, hungry, and dying on the streets, we cannot – nor should we – offer aid to individuals that are not US citizens.
We need to choose Americans first, and we need to choose the American homeless first. When there are over 700,000 children homeless and living on the streets, and over 2.5 million adolescents homeless and living on the streets, we should not have politicians that are seeking to take our tax dollars and put it into programs that ignore our own people, our own children, and instead, gives attention and aid to foreigners! Otherwise, what does it even mean to be a citizen of the United States of America? What does that mean to be a US citizen if your own country ignores you and put foreigners first? I believe Donald Trump understands that to be a citizen of the United States of America is a precious and sacred honor. And I’m thankful that we finally have a commander-in-chief who is putting Americans first.
