Under current laws and rules, far too many non-citizens (in my not-so-humble opinion) can access welfare and other financial fountains to which (I believe) they have no right. The Center for Immigration Studies has released details in which they found that the percentage of non-citizens living here are taking in about double the amount of welfare compared to those who are born in the USA.
Households headed by foreign noncitizens living in the United States, including legal and illegal aliens, use nearly twice as much welfare as native-born Americans, research finds.
In recently released research by the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS), analysts discovered that about 63 percent of noncitizen households, those who live legally and illegally in the U.S., use some form of public welfare while only about 35 percent of native-born American households are on welfare.
Likewise, roughly 50 percent of naturalized citizens — those who legally immigrated to the country and became citizens — use taxpayer-funded welfare, as well as about 55 percent of all households headed by legal immigrants, those who are naturalized citizens and those who are not yet citizens.
Noncitizen households are more than twice as likely to use food welfare programs and Medicaid when compared to native-born American households. Only about 21 percent of native-born American households use food welfare programs and 23 percent use Medicaid.
Meanwhile, 45 percent of noncitizen households use food welfare programs and 50 percent are on Medicaid.
California and Texas have the most expansive welfare-dependent immigration. For example, more than 7-in-10 noncitizen households in California use at least one form of welfare compared to just 35 percent of native-born American households that use welfare in the state.
In Texas, nearly 70 percent of noncitizen households use welfare. Similar to California, only 35 percent of native-born American households are on welfare.
In an exclusive interview with Breitbart News this week, President Trump said he wanted an end to all welfare-dependent legal immigration that burdens American taxpayers with the costs.
“I don’t like the idea of people coming in and going on welfare for 50 years, and that’s what they want to be able to do—and it’s no good,” Trump said.
This year, the Trump administration is considering a new regulation that would effectively ban legal immigrants from permanently resettling in the U.S. if they are a burden on American taxpayers.

The number of foreign-born residents in the USA, in terms of percentage, hasn’t been this high since 1910. In that year it was 14.7% vs. 13.7% now. That doesn’t seem like much of a big deal unless you consider the actual numbers.
The 1910 census reported 92,228,496 people. As of August 2018, the estimated population was 326,972,772. That’s an increase of over 300%. The estimate of foreign-born residents currently living here is 44.5 million, which, compared to 1910, is close to half of the entire population at that time. That’s nearly quadruple the immigrant population tallied in the year 2000.
The vast majority of those arriving in the country every year — more than 1.5 million annually — are low-skilled, poor or working class foreign nationals. Overall, those households use about 57% more food stamps and use 33% more cash welfare than native-born recipients. They also use about 44% more in Medicaid. Per household, it costs over $6,200 in federal welfare for each of those non-citizen families. That money is coming out of the taxpayer pockets.
I’ve said it many times, and I guess I’ll keep saying it – cut the purse strings of all the undeserved benefits, and we’ll spend a whole lot less on enforcement too. Once the cash cow dries up, the illegals will self-deport at record speed. It’s a win-win scenario.
My book is here! And I personally handed a copy to our President at the White House!!! I hope you enjoy it
