We have all known that illegal immigration is a huge drain on the American worker, taxpayers and our social systems, but shocking new analysis shows just how high those cost actually are.
The issues of jobs have been front and center during this election season.
The cost of educating the illegals has also been a major issue.
And let’s not forget the crime that has come with the invasion that we have seen over the last few years.
However welfare payments to illegals may be the greatest social cost that America is enduring due to the Democrats and establishment Republicans refusal to take out laws seriously and get control of the border.
The Washington Examiner has analyzed public spending and come to shocking conclusions…
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.
As you can see from the chart above, over 65% of illegal immigrant households were receiving cash welfare assistance. An absolutely staggering numbers!
If Donald Trump is serious about getting the national debt and taxes under control, and we believe he is, then we must address the incredible cost of supporting illegal alien families living off of the hard work of the American people!
