OLD BUT STILL TIMELY NEWS ON ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION

Here is what immigration is suppose to look like.
Here is what immigration is suppose to look like.

What are the main reasons the United States has entered a period of economic stagnation and moral decay? We are can argue about that until doomsday. Some will not even admit there is a problem, but when the Federal deficit approaches 18 trillion dollars, that is a difficult to ignore.

One thing that is making our deficit grow is the problem of illegal immigration. The people coming into the United States are not inherently inferior to native-born citizens, but many are poor and uneducated. So our generous health, education, and welfare benefits attract them. Moreover, illegal immigrants have little reason to see the United States as their country. Therefore, they are more inclined to focus upon what the United States can do them instead of what they can do for the United States; too many don’t make the effort to assimilate.

So what is the old news suggested by the title of this post? What follows was posted in the Gateway Pundit two years ago. That post makes the point that illegal immigrants drains the wealth of this nation (H/T to Keith DeHavelle. See this => comment).

Stunner… Most Illegal Immigrant Families Collect Welfare – Obama Wants to Up That Number

It figures. Most illegal immigrant families in the United States use taxpayer-funded welfare programs on behalf of their American-born anchor babies.
Judicial Watch reported:

Surprise, surprise; Census Bureau data reveals that most U.S. families headed by illegal immigrants use taxpayer-funded welfare programs on behalf of their American-born anchor babies.  Even before the recession, immigrant households with children used welfare programs at consistently higher rates than natives, according to the extensive census data collected and analyzed by a nonpartisan Washington D.C. group dedicated to researching legal and illegal immigration in the U.S. The results, published this month in a lengthy report, are hardly surprising. Basically, the majority of households across the country benefiting from publicly-funded welfare programs are headed by immigrants, both legal and illegal. States where immigrant households with children have the highest welfare use rates are Arizona (62%), Texas, California and New York with 61% each and Pennsylvania(59%). The study focused on eight major welfare programs that cost the government $517 billion the year they were examined. They include Supplemental Security Income (SSI) for the disabled, Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF), a nutritional program known as Women, Infants and Children (WIC), food stamps, free/reduced school lunch, public housing and health insurance for the poor (Medicaid). Food assistance and Medicaid are the programs most commonly used by illegal immigrants, mainly on behalf of their American-born children who get automatic citizenship.

If the United States is the world’s last best hope, then we should protect our country and its form of government. We should encourage each other to exercise our rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, but by definition, government-run health, education, and welfare programs assault individual rights, thereby undermining our constitutional republic. Thus, importing people who come here for government-run health, education, and welfare benefits — handouts — is dangerous to our constitutional republic.

If we want to help the world’s poor, the best place to help them is in their home countries, and the best way to help them is with private charity. We don’t need politicians importing poor people just so they can buy their votes.
