A Center for Immigration Studies report reveals a stunning 63% of households headed by a non-citizen reported that they used at least one welfare program, compared to 35% of native-headed households.  About half of the “non-citizens” in the US are in the country illegally.  Non-citizens also include long-term temporary visitors such as guestworkers and foreign students, and permanent resident green card holders. Non-citizen households access the welfare system at high rates, often receiving benefits on behalf of US-born children.  Welfare use rises the longer non-citizens are in the US: 50% of non-citizen households in the US for fewer than 10 years use one or more welfare programs, while the rate increases to 70% for those here more than 10 years.

California was once the richest state in the US, but now 20% of Californians live in poverty!    California’s decline is due to low-skilled immigration overwhelming the state.  About one-quarter of the state’s population is foreign-born.  72% of non-citizens in California are using welfare.  California Democrat lawmakers are considering giving “free” health care to any person who is inside the state, at the California taxpayer’s expense.

 

A Center for Immigration Studies review of U.S. Census Bureau data reveals a stunning 63% of households in the U.S. headed by non-citizens are on some form of welfare. That’s just shy of two out of every three proving to be a burden to the American people. So much for the lie that massive immigration enriches our nation.

The information CIS uncovered is infuriating in a number of ways. The 63% figure is almost twice the rate of native-headed American households that use welfare, which is a disturbingly high 35% as it is. But non-citizen households (45%) also utilize food programs at a much higher rate than natives (21%), and disproportionately tap into Medicaid programs as well (50% vs. 23%).

The most telling statistic in the review, however, is that welfare use rises among non-citizens the longer they are in our country.

“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,” CIS discovered.

Rather than serving as a temporary safety net, our welfare programs are proving to be a lifestyle staple for non-citizens sponging off the American taxpayer. Of course, many of these non-citizens do work, but they are low-skilled Hispanics from Central America laboring at poverty-level jobs. A 2015 CIS report found that 67% of households headed by immigrant farm workers are on public assistance of some form. Swollen-eyed Big Ag industrial farmers crying out about the need to find workers willing to do “the jobs Americans won’t do” are in fact having their cheap payrolls subsidized by the welfare programs of this nation.
