Not doing the jobs Americans won’t do: 70% of illegal aliens in Texas receive welfare

Illegal aliens crossing the border to line up at the welfare office

A new study has found that a remarkable 70% of illegal aliens in Texas are on the dole. Since only 39% of native born Americans are on welfare, it makes one think that the phrase “doing the jobs Americans won’t do” should be changed to “not doing the jobs that Americans won’t do.”

The Houston Chronicle tells the terrible tale of Texas taxes:

Thirteen years after Congress overhauled the American welfare system, 57 percent of immigrants with children — those in the country legally or not — use at least one government, welfare program according to a report released Tuesday by the Center for Immigration Studies.

In comparison, 39 percent of native-born Americans with children are signed up for welfare, the report found.

In Texas, 54 percent of legal immigrants and 70 percent of illegal immigrants receive welfare assistance, with illegal immigrants generally receiving benefits on behalf of their U.S.-born children, according to the study, written by a think tank that favors reducing immigration into the U.S.

Overall, Texas tied with California and New York for the second highest immigrant welfare rates behind Arizona.

Congratulations, Texas. Keep up the good work and you’ll be number uno in no time at all.

My son has autism, which has impacted my ability to earn a wage. My ex husband decided he just didn’t want to deal with it, so he left. Single mom, two kids one with a significant disability.

We get housing, food stamps, SSI and Medicaid.
Housing assistance provides $670 a month in rental assistance. We pay rent + all utilities. Food stamps comes to $200 on average per month. My son gets an SSI check for $350 a month. Total the government spends $14,640 a year + medical costs for my son. However, because of people like me we provide how many people a job?

If the government took my son and placed him in institutionalized care, it would cost on average $57,000 a year + medical costs.

Cost savings to taxpayers $42360 a year.

I think we should bill the Mexican Government what it cost us to care for their countrymen.

Give em the boot again as soon as the next spew hits the ceiling, but it will probably come back as a new identity soon enough.

After a quick perusal of its recent posts, any hesitation in applying the ejector seat on that punk would be hard to understand.

Mr. Editor, Two points I would like to say: 1. I agree that ILLEGAL immigration is a problem. That is the only thing that this troll and I agree with. We do not agree however that the illegal problem is only Mexicans and obviously I don’t agree that this is a WHITE America. I wouldn’t mind the troll if he had kept his racist bile to himself. He may not like those who are not white, however this is not a racist website, he could have espoused his dislike for ILLEGAL immigration and stop there and everyone would have agreed with him and he wouldn’t have had to feel attacked nor would we have to read his stupid hateful rants. 2. I do believe in freedom of speech, however I also believe that it is a freedom that comes with responsibilities AND that there are places where certain speeches should not be welcomed. I know deep inside my mind that if I came here or anywhere else and espoused the SAME crap he has espoused just changing the targets to white people or native americans or whomever, I would not be allowed to continue on such hateful rants without some… Read more »

Mr Ed,
Mickey is singling out a particular group. Not all illegal immigrants are of Mexican heritage. For him to repeatedly bring up illegal Mexican but leave out all other illegals is proof that he is racist. He can try to spin it however he wants, but he will not gain any ground here as long as he attacks KQ and singles out Mexicans. I feel he doesn’t bring anything positive to the site.

Damn, I’m waffling, we all know what he’s about. If we were all at a BBQ at my house it’s a no-brainer and would have been handled with extreme prejudice a long time ago. But Mr. Ed’s thoughts about a “teachable moment” in a forum like this is an excellent point, you do have to make an effort to see them. When do the polls close?

Had it been one instance of racism, or if the racist remarks had come from ignorance of what sort of remarks are considered racist, i’d be less inclined to vote for a ban on this dipweed.
As the matter stands I don’t want to see what he has to say. Nor do I desire to leave this community because of one such as it. Therefore; I vote for it to be banned.

p.s. by it i mean that thing spouting racist dookie.

My question is why do people like this (Olivia as well) come back to sites where they know they are not welcomed and their speech is found to be completely counter to the speech of the majority of those that visit here? You will NEVER see me going to a racist website to say anything not even to say that I hate racists… why should I do that? And why should I try to go back with another handle to continue to spread the same message over and over again that no one wants to read? It is insanity.

I think that a caveat is essential for sure, however I do say ban him. He and others should know that this is a civilized place where certain speech is not acceptable, but he is free to pursue his speech elsewhere and to keep his speech just not here. I know that a racist website would not accept MY speech (and they shouldn’t since they won’t agree and that is not the reason they go to the website). I think it is just.

Ban him on account of being a caveman, just like his bestest friend, Alan Grayson.

It’s a tough call, since this site DOES stand for the Constitution, and Free Speech. He does have the right to spew hatred, and we do reserve the right to ignore it. (TDx3) But in order to preserve the integrity of the site, it has to be made clear in some way that his brand of speech isn’t welcome here, or we give ammo to the left, who would brand us as a radical, far right, racist group. I say leave him, and everyone just TD,………….MO.

With all due respect, I just want to state that he doesn’t just spew general hatred, he also spews personal hatred against posters. It is all well and good to just thumb down and move on, when one is not personally insulted for something that the person has NO CONTROL over (the way they look or the color of their skin), but when there is personal hatred directed against a person the hater’s rights end. Freedom of Speech and the Constitution do not protect those that wish to infringe upon the rights of others to live their lives in peace and free from hatred. This man is spewing bile towards us all and some of us in particular. Like DRB said he is not apporting to the site he is creating problems. His rights ends when ours are infringed. Freedom of Speech does not protect him from invading my space (so to speak) with hate speech. It is very difficult to just ignore a personal attack and it is also difficult to just ignore general racism as if it is not sensibly dealt with, it gives the site a very bad pedigree. I do not come here to be called… Read more »

I don’t hold it against you at all, I understand your viewpoint. Like I said, I wanted to see him gone also. My only concern is that it gives ammo to those that would say that opposing viewpoints aren’t allowed here. Of course, Joan and Olivia are proof that they are.

Seems like the racists have been coming out of the woodwork and dirtying up the place lately. Think maybe it’s some leftists trying to pose as righties to “prove” their bs mantra that we are the racists?
