Surprise: 63% Of Non-Citizens Use Welfare, Higher Than U.S. Citizens

Guess how they figured this out? With a census

Census confirms: 63 percent of ‘non-citizens’ on welfare, 4.6 million households

A majority of “non-citizens,” including those with legal green card rights, are tapping into welfare programs set up to help poor and ailing Americans, a Census Bureau finding that bolsters President Trump’s concern about immigrants costing the nation.

In a new analysis of the latest numbers, from 2014, 63 percent of non-citizens are using a welfare program, and it grows to 70 percent for those here 10 years or more, confirming another concern that once immigrants tap into welfare, they don’t get off it.

The Center for Immigration Studies said in its report that the numbers give support for Trump’s plan to cut non-citizens off welfare from the “public charge” if they want a green card that allows them to legally work in the United States.

“The Trump administration has proposed new ‘public charge’ rules making it harder for prospective immigrants to qualify for lawful permanent residence — green cards — if they use or are likely to use U.S. welfare programs,” said CIS.

“Concern over immigrant welfare use is justified, as households headed by non-citizens use means-tested welfare at high rates. Non-citizens in the data include illegal immigrants, long-term temporary visitors like guest workers, and permanent residents who have not naturalized. While barriers to welfare use exist for these groups, it has not prevented them from making extensive use of the welfare system, often receiving benefits on behalf of U.S.-born children,” added the Washington-based immigration think tank.

The numbers are huge. The report said that there are 4,684,784 million non-citizen households receiving welfare.

If someone is applying for citizenship, part of the requirment is that they must be able to pay for their own lives. They cannot be on welfare or other public assistance. These are people who are here legally, such as green card holders, permanent legal residents, refugees, and such, as well as illegally, as even if they are barred by federal law, some states will give them public assistance.

Unfortuantely, those who are naturalized are ending up on some sort of public assistance after being naturalized. Most countries require that those who are coming/being let in/looking for citizenship be able to take care of themselves, rather than be a drain on society. The U.S. seems to be allowing in people who immediately go on the public dole.

The Center for Immigration Studies notes a few things, including

  • The primary reason welfare use is so high among non-citizens is that a much larger share of non-citizens have modest levels of education and, as a result, they often earn low wages and qualify for welfare at higher rates than natives.
  • Of all non-citizen households, 58 percent are headed by immigrants who have no more than a high school education, compared to 36 percent of native households.
  • Using education levels and likely future income to determine the probability of welfare use among new green card applicants — and denying permanent residency to those likely to utilize such programs — would almost certainly reduce welfare use among future permanent residents.
  • Of households headed by naturalized immigrants (U.S. citizens), 50 percent used one or more welfare programs. Naturalized-citizen households tend to have lower welfare use than non-citizen households for most types of programs, but higher use rates than native households for virtually every major program.

Why are we allowing them in?

    “…modest levels of education…”

    BWAHAHAHAHAH! Good one. They are putting a lot of effort shining that turd.

    ‘Why are we allowing them in?’

    I think mainly because a certain traitorous political party views them as unregistered voters ripe for harvesting. That, plus it makes them feel virtuous giving immigrants the shirts off of citizens’ backs.

    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.

    All four states with the largest foreign-born populations, including California, have extremely high use of welfare by immigrant households. In Texas, for example, nearly 70 percent of households headed by immigrants use taxpayer-funded welfare.

    This straining of public services by a booming 44 million foreign-born population translates to the average immigrant household costing American taxpayers $6,234 in federal welfare.

    Ike’s “operation werback” was a huge success FOR AMERICAN WORKERS mainly due to the reduction in protection costs: Police, insurance, courts… . a small part was the reduction is welfare. Those of us over 70 – who cared and paid attention – know this well. Some of us, America haters, lie abut “Operation Wetback’s” big success FOR AMERICAN WORKERS!
