Default Cashing in: Illegal immigrants get $1,261 more welfare than American families, $5,692

Cashing in: Illegal immigrants get $1,261 more welfare than American families, $5,692 vs. $4,431 | Washington Examiner

Quote:
Illegal 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.

Immigrants receiving the most in the study of 2012 figures come from Mexico and Central America. Their average annual taxpayer funded welfare collection is $8,251, 86 percent higher than the benefits used by native households, said the report.
But But we have been told by the lefties the illegals don't get welfare benefits because it is against the law.

How many hungry children residing here legally could be fed by funds squandered on illegal aliens?

Don't forget the 8 billion or so annually spend on giving illegals refundable earned income rax refunds. They do not even have to provide a valid Social Security number.

You are regurgitating an old articles
Which were Also part of Tom Delay's campaign

https://www.newsmax.com/Newsfront/Il.../727875/___May 9, 2016




This nonsense was debunked:

DeLay said most illegal immigrants draw "welfare benefits, they’re sending their kids to school, they’re using the public services."

People living in the U.S. without authorization indeed draw on public services including government-supported hospitals. Also, children of all origins attend public schools.

But counter to DeLay’s prime point, adults lacking legal residency are barred by law from government programs that fit the "welfare" category. Parents still may seek benefits, though, for their child-citizens.
Soooo... that brings us into the present, which the Examiner seems to shun for research.
Update :

According to the GAO (Government Accountability Office):

GAO noted that: (1) in fiscal year (FY) 1995, about $1.1 billion in Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC) and Food Stamp benefits were provided to households with an illegal alien parent for the use of his or her citizen child; (2) this amount accounted for about 3 percent of AFDC and 2 percent of Food Stamp benefit costs; (3) a vast majority of households receiving these benefits resided in a few states--85 percent of the AFDC households were in California, New York, Texas, and Arizona

Hmmm why do you suppose the pro illegal immigrant folks use numbers that are a dozen years old? The same reason they insist on the contrivance of illegals can receive benefits on behalf of their children is not illegals receiving benefits.

Claiming illegal aliens do not receive welfare requires a great deal of wilful blindness. Federal Bureaucrats get to decide which programs provide benefits requiring proof of legal residence.

Quote:
When a federal agency designates a program as a federal public benefit foreclosed to not-qualified immigrants, the law requires the state or local agency to verify the immigration and citizenship status of all program applicants. However, many federal agencies have not specified which of their programs provide federal public benefits. Until they do so, state and local agencies that administer the programs are not obligated to verify the immigration status of people who apply for them.
https://www.nilc.org/issues/economic...igfedprograms/

The so-called debunking also ignores state and local welfare costs for illegal aliens. Many of these programs do not require proof of legal residence.

Accepting for the moment the highly suspect claim that illegal aliens do not receive welfare leads to the reality that welfare costs would skyrocket under amnesty or the path to citizenship. Newly minted welfare legal citizens would be eligible to sponsor more of the same thanks to the policy of chain migration. It is doubtful the waiting period included in the path to citizenship proposals would survive court challenges given the pro illegal alien bias of the Federal judiciary.

But But we have been told by the lefties the illegals don't get welfare benefits because it is against the law.
Lefties like to claim technically it isn't the parents but the children of illegals that were born here that get it. This is why people who aren't here legally shouldn't be allowed to enroll their kids in welfare and why only parents should be allowed to enroll their kids in welfare. This was there is no loophole for them to exploit.

Right, you know the EBT benefits card given to illegal alien parents for their US born children has a prominent warning it can be used for children only. Oh wait, there is nothing of the kind written on the card nor are EBT eligible vendors required to determine the benefit is being used for children.

Prove it.

The money is collected on behalf of a 'US Citizen', by a non-US citizen. There is no way to prove that the 'US citizen' benefits from the money provided.
