Liberals in Washington DC care so much about the children of refugees that they now receive more government benefits than poor American children.
We are an extremely generous nation but this is simply asinine.
The Washington Examiner reported:
Report: Children of refugees get more federal benefits than poor U.S. kids
America loves kids, but Uncle Sam has a favorite: children of refugees.
Among recipients of food stamps, welfare cash and Social Security payments, refugee children receive more in taxpayer-funded aid than children of citizens, according to a new report on federal spending from the pro-immigration Migration Policy Institute.
For example, 30 percent of refugee children live in households that received food stamps from 2009-13. Among American children, the number was 27 percent, said the report titled, “Young Children of Refugees in the United States: Integration Successes and Challenges.”
Some 8 percent received cash welfare, compared with 6 percent of U.S. citizen households. And 5 percent of children of refugees were part of Social Security’s Supplemental Security Income program, compared with 4 percent of U.S. children.

If you were having trouble feeding your own children, would you give more food and money to the children of other people? None of this makes sense.
