Importing Poverty By Planes,Trains And Automobiles
Some folks figure its just ducky we are importing these people not by the ship load but by large enough margins to populate entire states. The numbers of ILLEGAL ALIENS in this country would populate these states at their current population levels Wyoming, Washington D.C, Vermont, North Dakota, Alaska, South Dakota, Delaware, Montana, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, Maine and Hawaii and that's if there are just a mere 11,000,000 as is reported.
Fifty-seven percent of Mexican immigrants on welfare
A report by the Center for Immigration Studies (www.cis.org) reveals some startling figures about welfare use by families headed by immigrants.
“In 2010, 36 percent of immigrant-headed households used at least
one major welfare program (primarily food assistance and Medicaid)
compared to 23 percent of native households,” summarizes the document
which was published by the Center for Immigration Studies and examines
a wide variety of topics relating to immigration. Click HERE to read the full report.
The document breaks down the immigrant families by country of origin
and gives specific types of welfare and percentages of the families
that used it in 2010. An average fewer than 23 percent of native
households use some type of “welfare” which is specifically defined in
the study. 36 percent of households headed by immigrants use some type
of welfare. Families headed by immigrants from specific countries or
areas of the world range from just over 6 percent for those immigrants
from Great Britain to more than 57 percent of those from Mexico using
some type of welfare.
This comprehensive study suggests there are approximately 40 million
immigrants in the United States of which more than a 25 percent of that
number, and the largest overall group, originate from Mexico. The study
estimates that approximately 28 percent of immigrants, or just over 11
million, are within the United States illegally. The study also
suggests that nearly 50 percent of those immigrants originating from
Mexico and Central America are here illegally.
This report is very comprehensive and examines various statistics of
immigrants currently residing in the United States. Overall, state and
federal aid use by immigrant families is much higher than that used by
families headed by citizens of the United States.
The large population of immigrants, both legal and illegal in
Eastern Washington and even Spokane affects the states budget
The approaching fiscal cliff is forcing congress and the current
administration to contemplate cuts to services. Welfare use by
immigrants, both illegally and legally within the United States, should
be thoroughly examined and considered while making cuts.
