    There is a lot of taxpayer money going to people who have broken our immigration laws.  This is insane and has to stop.

    A new study on immigration indicates that 59% of undocumented people living in the U.S. used one major welfare program. That compares to 39% for U.S.-born households.

    An analysis conducted by the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) reveals that immigrants have especially high use of food programs (36% vs. 25% for the U.S.-born), Medicaid (37% vs. 25% for the U.S.-born), and the Earned Income Tax Credit (16% vs. 12% for the U.S.-born).

    Illegal immigrants can receive welfare on behalf of U.S.-born children, and illegal immigrant children can receive school lunch/breakfast and WIC directly. Some states provide Medicaid to some illegal adults and children, and a few provide SNAP. Several million illegal immigrants also have work authorization (e.g. DACA, TPS, and some asylum applicants) allowing receipt of the EITC.

    CIS researchers last month revealed that 49.5 million foreign-born residents now live across the U.S., compared to 9.7 million in 1960.

    The foreign-born population has increased by 4.5 million since January 2021.

    CIS survey analysts state that immigrant welfare dependence means that current immigration is unlikely to improve the fiscal picture of the government. … d/1146637/

      If your sources are true, no one including myself is going to support that.

        In Canada there is alot of paper work to get welfare. Most of illegal immigrants would be deported or homeless. Canada per capita has more street homeless and higher immigrats than US.

        Where US spends 14% on their welfare budget wail Canada just 5%.  It could be because US is paying out too much for illegal immigrant welfare.

        Funny, many of the new immigrants say, it was better living back home. Canada is too much work and too expensive to live. Certainly from housing growing 30 times from 1970s and wages only growing 6 times increse. .IImaginats are working cheaper.   And more discrimination against whites, that's gone over reached  Funny too, is my girlfriend and I want to move to Trinidad for a better life. How the world keeps changing, and the bullies keep us on our toes.

          Thanks, Castle, I had a crazy girl friend at the turn of the century who lived in Nainamo. I thought the benefits were generous as she received money for each of her two teen aged sons.

          I always believe Canada was more welcoming to migrants than the USA, where people are so afraid of a great cultural Replacement.

          Even as a consummate lefty, I still have a problem with benefits going to those who are not citizens of the United States.

          The Canadians seem to be facing a lot of the pressures we are experiencing here.

          More discrimination against whites? Tell about that from a Canadian point of view?

            My girlfriend who works at Walmart for 30 years complains all the time about the last 5 years of mostly east indain  immgrates taking over most of the store staff and all management. These immgrates seem to have good cars, homes and everything they want, where it takes all our lives to earn.  Race theophy or race theories seem to be involved in all the institutions and escalates culture and race stresses. It use to be in Rome, do what the romas do.  Now it's like walking on egg shells with narcissist. We are both not liking the kindness and openess of Canada so much anymore. And it's not just the cold weather. Trinidad is a place of dancing and singing all the time and cost is factional.

              Thanks for sharing that account, Castle.

              Most of the time the immigrants, particularly East Indians, if the example in California's Silicon Valley is any guide, comes to the area with much wealth from home. It is not so much that the government gives them any advantage. They congregate and compound their initial advantages Living in Hawaii, much the same was said about the Japanese.

              I don't want Canada to lose its welcoming spirit, which if it wasn't for the cold, would make it more habitable than the US.

      This was a sad to read...

      It's disheartening to witness the ongoing trend of escalating numbers each month, and each day, and the impact is increasingly evident in many of our communities.

      Addressing poverty among our fellow Americans is crucial, and redirecting the funds currently allocated to support illegal migrants could make a significant difference. The strain on education, healthcare, and housing caused by this situation is concerning. 

      The looming financial challenges posed by the substantial influx of illegal migrants have yet to fully unfold. Unfortunately, it's often the economically disadvantaged who bear the brunt of such issues. The competition for low-skilled jobs between migrants and impoverished Americans further exacerbates the struggles faced by those with limited education.

      The repercussions of these circumstances are arguably the most significant problem stemming from the policies implemented during Biden's administration, with the potential to reshape the country. The gap between the rich and poor widens, as the wealthy benefit while the less fortunate bear the consequences.

      Looking ahead, there's hope for a positive shift in 2024 to address and rectify these pressing issues. Please consider we need a change in the White House.

        They had 15,000 yesterday I believe I read somewhere, 12,600 the day before that. … -in-24hrs/

        No worries, if they can make that the average for a year that will only be about 5,475,000  which is not a lot... over 4 more years of Biden that would only amount to about 22 million new Americans.

        Not a problem at all.

      Thank you for sharing this. I believe the unrestricted influx of migrants poses a crisis that many may not yet grasp, and it is likely to escalate rapidly. The incorporation of numerous migrants into our country and states will bring about challenges in terms of financial, educational, housing, and healthcare support. This aspect of the problem hasn't been fully acknowledged, but it will become evident soon.

      There's a probable increase in state taxes looming, and our already burdened public schools will face additional strain. The introduction of a low-cost workforce will impact the job market, potentially leading to decreased wages and the displacement of American workers from previously higher-paying positions.

      The issues at hand are multifaceted. While America does need workers, a careful consideration of the number required and the specific fields in demand is crucial. President Biden's open borders policy has disrupted the status quo significantly, and its repercussions are likely to negatively impact America for years to come.

        It is evident for many places, but it will become unmanageable in another few years, as Biden (or whoever) continues to allow them to come as fast and in as many numbers as can make it.  Millions a year now.

    I think there should be very strict rules and a ton of reform when it comes to ANY welfare recipient, U.S. born or not. The system simply perpetuates poverty rather than lift people out of it.

    But not a single penny should go to someone who is not a citizen. I think that's an abomination. I don't want anyone to starve for any reason. At the same time it creates just more incentive for people to come here if they know they can benefit from our programs—and those benefits would far surpass any income they'd ever get back in their home country.

    Americans should be appalled.

      The sad part is Americans on Social Security average just $1,781.63 a month, according to federal data, but Biden is doling out $2,200 a month plus a long list of other freebies to migrants who have broken our laws to get here.  All part of Open Society - UN Compact on Migration... the Biden Administration puts International Agencies above National Interests and Law. … -services/

    I, for one, am TIRED of illegal immigrants getting tax money that should go to American citizens.  Why democrats? Why do you value illegal immigrants more than those who have served this country?

    "Biden aiding illegal immigrants instead of veterans is un-American
    Democrats only care about illegal immigrants because it's an election year

    Now Biden is adding insult to injury. Media reports indicate that the border is in such chaos that the Biden administration is using resources from the VA to facilitate healthcare for illegal aliens. This is a slap in the face to our veterans and to the taxpayer.

    That’s why, last week, I introduced the  No VA Resources for Illegal Aliens Act in the Senate. My bill does just what it says. It prohibits VA resources, whether healthcare or claims processing for healthcare, from being used for illegal aliens. The bill already has the support of the Chairman of the House VA Committee Mike Bost, and I’m hopeful that Congress can pass it soon.

    Biden flacks argue that since the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) reimburses the VA for these services, there is no issue. But this is wrong. In reality, DHS is leveraging healthcare providers in the VA’s Community Care Network, which was established to ensure veterans could access doctors in their own town, for the care of illegal aliens. 

    As a result, veterans are forced to travel to VA facilities instead of relying on doctors in their communities. That means the administration is prioritizing the needs of illegal immigrants over the needs of our nation’s veterans. It’s hard to think of something more un-American than that. … n-american

      I had to apply for uniquely special professonal services to get a US green card to work in the US. Today immigrants from Mexico can buy in at 4 to $ 8 thousands, working underground.
