THIS HAS TO BE THE NUMERO UNO REASON TO VOTE FOR TRUMP! Donald Trump knows that the millions upon millions of illegals that have crossed our border will bankrupt America even further! The path is financially unsustainable and it’s cultural suicide for America!
Please listen to Mark Levin’s take on this below BUT first Jason Richwine gives an overview of the high cost of immigration:
The Center for Immigration Studies takes an honest look at the HUGE cost of illegals:Jason Richwine, PhD, is an independent public policy analyst in Washington, D.C., and a contributing writer at National Review.
In September 2015, the Center for Immigration Studies published a landmark study of immigration and welfare use, showing that 51 percent of immigrant-headed households used at least one federal welfare program — cash, food, housing, or medical care — compared to 30 percent of native households. Following similar methodology, this new study examines the dollar cost of that welfare use.
The average household headed by an immigrant (legal or illegal) costs taxpayers $6,234 in federal welfare benefits, which is 41 percent higher than the $4,431 received by the average native household.
The average immigrant household consumes 33 percent more cash welfare, 57 percent more food assistance, and 44 percent more Medicaid dollars than the average native household. Housing costs are about the same for both groups.
At $8,251, households headed by immigrants from Central America and Mexico have the highest welfare costs of any sending region — 86 percent higher than the costs of native households.
Illegal immigrant households cost an average of $5,692 (driven largely by the presence of U.S.-born children), while legal immigrant households cost $6,378.
The greater consumption of welfare dollars by immigrants can be explained in large part by their lower level of education and larger number of children compared to natives. Over 24 percent of immigrant households are headed by a high school dropout, compared to just 8 percent of native households. In addition, 13 percent of immigrant households have three or more children, vs. just 6 percent of native households.
