Most Noncitizens Including Illegal Aliens Collect Welfare

Maybe Americans tolerate the intolerable immigration situation because too few know that noncitizens collect welfare — and at stratospheric rates.

According to a new report by the Center for Immigration Studies, most noncitizen households collect welfare. About half of these noncitizens are in the country illegally.

Among the alarming findings:

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. …

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 [Earned Income Tax Credit], 31 percent of non-citizen-headed households receive cash welfare, compared to 19 percent of native households.

The main reason foreigners can collect welfare at our expense is that their US-born children qualify as American citizens. Aliens can collect benefits on their behalf even if they are here illegally. This is a major motivator to drop anchor babies.

The longer they stay, the more welfare they use:

Of households headed by non-citizens in the United States for fewer than 10 years, 50 percent use one or more welfare programs; for those here more than 10 years, the rate is 70 percent.

Even if they work, they still receive welfare. There is at least one person working in 93% of noncitizen households that receive welfare.

Amnesty is not the answer. The households of naturalized immigrants who become US citizens have “higher use rates than native households for virtually every major program.”

In California, which massive, largely illegal Third World immigration transformed from a Republican stronghold into one of the bluest states in the Union, households headed by a noncitizen are more than twice as likely to collect welfare than native households, 72% to 35%.

You can see why people willing to sacrifice the bests interests of the country to grow the welfare state and increase power for the Democratic Party are so keen on keeping the borders open.

You can also see why the combination of open borders and a generous welfare state is not sustainable. If we don’t fix this, it will destroy America.
