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.

You can make 2X the poverty level and still qualify for WIC and the lunch program.
My household can make 80k and still ask for help.

Yup.

Including things like WIC, EITC and the school lunch program is just :-).

You have to be a goddamn idiot to not see how severely these numbers are slanted to project the type of shit sammich some of these fools are pre-conditioned to believe.

But like i said, those idiots love it. People like BEP consider walking on the sidewalk a form of welfare, so they LOOOOVE this shit.

But what can you do, right? We live in a post-fact era in which people make up whatever bullshit they want.

I just want him to man up..He was SO confident, and talked SO much smack...

Oddly enough, his football takes are pretty decent. I've even gave him rep for good posts.

That said, I'm not letting up. It's the principle of the matter.

I agree.

Mandatory community service on top of work requirements for everyone on benefits who is not disabled.

I'd like a year of service before anyone could vote but baby steps. All hail our Constitution and stuff.

Undocumented migrants (lol).. in other words illegal immigrants are a net negative on the economy and you won't find ANYTHING to say otherwise that doesn't seriously smudge the numbers.

The internal study, which was completed in late July but never publicly released, found that refugees “contributed an estimated $269.1 billion in revenues to all levels of government” between 2005 and 2014 through the payment of federal, state and local taxes. “Overall, this report estimated that the net fiscal impact of refugees was positive over the 10-year period, at $63 billion.”
So more money for the govt is your standard of benefiting the country? The country is not the govt. You worship govt—not helping Americans.

Everything you said here is either stupid, incorrect, or just self loathing.

I get it. You're a cultural masochist. White people be bad. We need to breed them out of existence as fast as possible and it will cure all racism. Very woke bro.


I don't trust any study that uses the word 'refugee' as a weasel word. It's CLEARLY not being used in the traditional definition because if it was then it has nothing, at all, to do with illegal immigrants.
