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.

Barack Obama wants to up that number.
The Obama Administration is using a Spanish soap opera format to push food stamps on illegal immigrants and Spanish-speaking Americans, via the Daily Caller:

If we hadn’t already experienced three years of Obama we’d say this was shocking news.

    Well, how can they displace your White children’s future if you don’t pay for their breeding, education, health care, and upkeep?

    Those of you who don’t live in a border state would be shocked by the truth. Most illegal en have several “families” in the United States and at least one back home that they plan to bring here for the free food, Sec 8 housing, and healthcare as soon as possible. One illegal man will soon account for 15 or 20 new US citizens….all of whom will vote in a huge racial block for the Democrat. Once Texas goes blue (which is to say brown) there will never be another Republican President of the United States, ever. There is no math that can support such an event ever occurring again. Enjoy! But don’t get too riled up over it, or you might be called a RAY-CIST!

    Not surprised. . . all part of Obama’s plan to use illegals to help “Steal” the Election. . .

    According to an unidentified source, the same fictitious one used by ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN and MSNBC as well as NYT and WaPo, Obama and his fellow RATs (DemocRATs) operatives are planning to use illegals to “STEAL THE ELECTION” by voting multiple times in multiple locations assisted by LaRaza and Goonioun thugs. Since the Police and authorities cannot trace these 11+ Million people here illegally, yet pay them lots of money, this is a perfect way to secure votes. . .this is why Holder is trying hard to disallow voter ID requirements. . will screw up their plan.

    obama is a serial liar and a malignant narcissist, holding onto power using your money to thwart the laws of the country to suit his whims. can’t believe he’s still walking around. i guess the tea party really isn’t a terrorist threat.

    so much for the argument that it would cost too much money to deport illegals…guess where we would find the funding?

  • its the same thing the left is doing all over the world. using their welfare state to colonized your country. the marxist gave up on military conquest years ago. they are going to achieve their one world government by having leftist politicans colonize their own countries. look how well the muslim colonization of europe is working for the left.

    We would have had a barrier across that southern border forty years ago that rivals the Great Wall of China if the people slipping in were mostly potential Republicans.

  • theBuckWheat

    Any plan to resolve the illegal immigrant issue must PROHIBIT these people from ever gaining the right to vote This must be part of the price they must pay for being able to live here legally and it must be the price that politicians pay for ever expecting these people could become a favorable voting block.

  • RoadKill

    Does anyone here think that ROMNEY would put a stop to this foolishness? ROFL

    The GOP want the illegals here as much as the Democrats. All Romney represents is a light version of the Liberal Progressive mindset – he’s about as faithful a patriot as any prostitute is a faithful wife.

    If I could say anything positive about Romney it would be that he has some business sense and probably is not a Marxist. However, he’s still a progressive elitist and big government person. Will he clean out the rat’s nest that the Obama Administration has installed? no.

  • Greg

    Not new news if you ever stood in line at a large grocery store here in south texas for say the last 20 years you would have noticed the segregation of star/nonstar allowable purchases by folks new enough not to speak the language but experienced enough to game the system. The wic purchase for resale of baby formula was particularly repugnant.

    Mr Hoft,
    I really do not know for just how many years I have enjoyed reading on your site.
    For about a decade I have promulgated your site to others.
    Please try to refrain from falsehoods of the sort you spread in this story.
    It is well known the USDA Obamites stopped the novela vids the day after Drudge reported it.
    Why not use such info to proclaim our victory on this one, rather than deliberately obfuscate?
    If this sort of thing continues, among other like incidences over the last few weeks, I shall remove with deep regret your site from among those on which I depend for factual news reporting.

    This is why we need to amend the Constitution and not allow automatic citizenship to babies born in the US when their parents have broken our laws and have come here illegally. When an illegal gives birth on our soil, she, and her offspring should be deported.

    Let me be clear, I will make sure that every Illegal Alien gets a big welfare check and a pre-filled-out absentee ballot!

    Iowa congressman expects immigration lawsuit against Obama in ‘weeks’

    Iowa Republican Rep. Steve King says he expects that the immigration lawsuit he is spearheading against President Obama will be filed in a court within weeks.

    “I think we’re talking weeks rather than months,” King told The Daily Caller in an interview Friday about the planned legal action against Obama.

    King’s lawsuit is in response to the Obama administration’s divisive announcement last month that the government would stop deporting certain illegal immigrants who arrived in the United States as children.

    The congressman said a meeting was held last Tuesday with potential co-plaintiffs interested in signing on to the lawsuit to prevent the Obama administration from going through with its plan.

    And then this: Income tax-delinquent FCC employees owe more than $1 million

    While President Obama repeats his campaign talking point about high-income private sector employees allegedly not paying their “fair share” in taxes, many government employees at the Federal Communications Commission have failed to pay what they already owe under current tax law.

    The Daily Caller has obtained a July 13 letter from Rep. Marsha Blackburn to FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski, in which the Tennessee Republican wrote that according to Internal Revenue Service data, FCC employees’ income tax delinquency rate rose from 2.74 percent to 3.88 percent from 2008 to 2010. During that same period, she added, unpaid federal income taxes owed by the agency’s staff rose from $544,917 to $1,084,544.

    1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity, by legislating the wealth out of prosperity.

    2. What one person receives without working for…another person must work for without receiving.

    3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.

    4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.

    5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work, because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work, because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that is the beginning of the end of any nation!

    Can you think of a reason for not sharing this?

    Neither could I……

    Much in the way LBJ stated his desire to keep the Blacks voting Democrat (his actual language was much more crass), Obama wants the Hispanic/Latino/Mexican vote.

  • Angelique Brabant

    In California, we spend 45 BILLION per year on illegals. They get everything, although I think they may have to purchase (or steal) their own vehicles. Illegal Mexicans make up one-third of our prison population.

    The Chinese also play the anchor baby game, although they come here, have their babies, and take their little American citizens back to Communist China. (Check out Chinese Birthing Centers.)

    Obama will: bomb Iran in October thus ensuring his re-election so he can finish his ruinous agenda.

    They will cheat at the polls. The left always does, and this time it will be worse. States need to pass voter ID laws in a hurry.

  • Colo Kid

    ….a number of years ago an employee of the Colorado State Welfare Agency told the percentage, by race, of those receiving welfare in the State. The figure of over 75% Hispanic rings a bell. That guy was gone immediately! POOF!

    Two years ago I was in a local Albertson’s grocery store and I watched a caravan of three shopping carts being pulled by Hispanic guys who were plainly of alien character. When the overflowing shopping carts were in the process of checking out I positioned myself where I could observe the check out. The long, long checkout tape snaked along the floor around the checker’s feet. When the checkout was finished the total was $390.00+ and it was paid for by a young Hispanic woman with a welfare card. The Hispanic woman saw me watching and she was plainly embarassed.

  • Sparky

    More people living on government handouts means more voters dependent on Obama. A surefire way to guarantee his re-election. Why Americans put up with Obama’s crap is unbelievable. Where is the public outrage?

    Don’t forget all those illegals that Reagan gave amnesty to.

  • TeaPartyNation

    And as soon as the ILLEGALS get their OBOZO work permits, they will be eligible for UNEMPLOYMENT Compensation on top of all that other “other peoples’ money” they suck up.

  • The Elector of Saxony

    “Don’t forget all those illegals that Reagan gave amnesty to.”

    Quite true. Sad that the Right has yet to learn to make the Left go first. Reagan gave amnesty in exchange for a promise of a border wall, strict enforcement, and deportations. Of course, the Left lied and reneged on the deal. The next comprehensive reform deal needs to be border wall, shoot to kill border checkpoints, armed drones, land mines, English as the official language of the USA, and deportation of every illegal found within the borders for a 10 year period. Then, we can open up migration after every American who wants a job has a job, and when the only language spoken or taught in our schools is English.

    Really, the worst part is the schools. If you can talk to any person involved in public education in a mid to large city in Texas, Arizona, California, you’ll know that the public schools are sputtering to an absolute halt due to the influx of illegals who are illiterate in both Spanish and English. It’s like having to teach a 15 year old Helen Keller and get him or her to the point of understanding something, then placing them in bilingual education classes until they are 22. Each student like that probably costs 4 times what an ordinary, born in the USA student costs the taxpayer. Oh, and don’t forget free breakfast, lunch, and dinner all year around now. We’re going to have a nation where 50% are illiterate, possibly more. That’s Brazil, friends. That is not a good place.

  • Blacque Jacques Shellacque

    Isn’t it comforting to know that we the taxpayers, citizens and legal immigrants alike, foot the bill?

  • Marsh626

    Not surprising. People with low IQs tend to struggle academically, economically, commit more violent crime and need more government handouts.

    And sorry to say the unmentionable, but the large majority of illegal immigrants in America come from the 3rd world countries who have low average IQ figures. And we’re not only getting tons of illegal immigrants from the 3rd world, most of them are the dregs of their 3rd world countries.

  • dunce

    Babies born here are legally entitled to these benefits as citizens, but do you really think that they are only collecting on the children that were born here or also on all their children? Do you believe that many families are collecting on bogus claims that the children were born here when none of their children were?

    Wasn’t it Romney that had workers on his property that were not citizens? And then he dismissed them because he was now running for office? Were these now “unemployed”
    people eligible for assistance?

    But the point is, All this outrage of giving to the poor is rooted in the business structure of the US. It’s called capitalism and works by SUPPLY and DEMAND.

    American businesses hire non-eligible workers under the table because profits can be had more easily due the low cost of hiring these immigrants. This in turn creates a demand and word soon gets around of this demand. The supply end is fulfilled as more immigrants filter into the country to gain employment. For years this has been happening.

    Now you have several prissy ladies on Fox(no doubt), who are completely out of touch with those way beneath them, talking about how terrible it is to give these immigrants any relief that was caused by the American business owners to begin with.

    P.S. Please disregard this post as it is being made too early in the day after a night of enduring extreme heat and before a coffee. 🙂

I observe many getting welfare, ssi and the such working “under the table” and often with another baby on the way, and I am said to be prejudice if I say anything negative well so be it, I am tired of working to support others who come to this country just to freeload!
