Washington DC and The Holy Land>Census confirms: 63 percent of ‘non-citizens’ on welfare

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.

And nearly all, 4,370,385, have at least one worker in the house..

In their report, Steven A. Camarota, the director of research, and Karen Zeigler, a demographer at the Center, said that in census data, about half of those are in the United States illegally.

Their key findings in the analysis:
In 2014, 63 percent of households headed by a non-citizen reported that they used at least one welfare program, compared to 35 percent of native-headed households.
Welfare use drops to 58 percent for non-citizen households and 30 percent for native households if cash payments from the Earned Income Tax Credit are not counted as welfare. EITC recipients pay no federal income tax. Like other welfare, the EITC is a means-tested, anti-poverty program, but unlike other programs one has to work to receive it.





Compared to native households, non-citizen households have much higher use of food programs (45 percent vs. 21 percent for natives) and Medicaid (50 percent vs. 23 percent for natives).

Including the EITC, 31 percent of non-citizen-headed households receive cash welfare, compared to 19 percent of native households. If the EITC is not included, then cash receipt by non-citizen households is slightly lower than natives (6 percent vs. 8 percent).

While most new legal immigrants (green card holders) are barred from most welfare programs, as are illegal immigrants and temporary visitors, these provisions have only a modest impact on non-citizen household use rates because: 1) most legal immigrants have been in the country long enough to qualify; 2) the bar does not apply to all programs, nor does it always apply to non-citizen children; 3) some states provide welfare to new immigrants on their own; and, most importantly, 4) non-citizens (including illegal immigrants) can receive benefits on behalf of their U.S.-born children who are awarded U.S. citizenship and full welfare eligibility at birth.

Detox is like every other halfling - hates the White part and feels loyalty to the other, even tho those cultures and nations are total failures. It's incredible but also historical....blood is thicker than water, and feels of "oppression" are quite powerful.

This is what many fail to understand, the economic impact affects everyone in one way or another. They just don't realize it because many of the costs are hidden.

So our taxpayer dollars support them while they take away jobs from Americans.

Seems like a self-defeating policy as it creates less Americans to tax. SanSalvador, Honduras and Gautamela rely on their remittances sent home. The money doesn't evben stay in the US.

The "Center for Immigration Studies" is a hate group masquerading as a think tank. https://www.splcenter.org/fighting-h...ration-studies

These developments, its historical associations, and its record of publishing reports that hype the criminality of immigrants, are why CIS is labeled an anti-immigrant hate group.
Their numbers are complete bullshit. Here's Cato, which is far from left-wing in any way. https://www.cato.org/publications/co...-welfare-state

The latter two are the largest portion of the welfare state and twice as large as all welfare programs for the poor combined. We found that immigrants use 39 percent fewer welfare and entitlements benefits per person than native-born Americans. Immigrants are less likely to use the individual programs in most cases and, when they do, the benefits they receive tend to be smaller.

No you have that confused with the real hate group which is the Southern Poverty Law Center. The exist to label any pro-family or pro-American policy in preference left wing internationalism aka globalism. These are the folks being used on social media to censor conservative opinions and news. That right there, shows they're really fascists.

They get welfare through their children, which I posted a link documenting a few years back.

So you like using the billionaire Koch Brothers for back-up now? I thought the left hated them and thought them corrupt?

Koch brothers are pro-open borders and fake free-trade pacts that take away better-paying jobs, because they can profit off cheap labor. Good to see you're not for average middle-class working folks.

:-) @ this report.

I've had this conversation too many times to care to do it again. If you want to believe this bullshit, then so be it. No one will ever change your mind about it.

If you can't see how blatant the bias is in this, and how desperate they are to raise the numbers then you don't care to.

Using things like the EITC and SSI to try to label them as some sort of extra benefit that "non-citizens" should be shamed for being eligible for, even though they're clearly taxed therefore eligible.

Or the school lunch programs that pretty much everyone is eligible for....

They don't even define what "Any Welfare" is, and knowing you assholes it's probably something like, "Walks on the sidewalk". :-)

Well you're not getting EITC and SSI if you're not. Illegals aren't even eligible for EITC. Not even if they have American born children.
