Report: More than half of immigrants on welfare. Your tax dollars at work. Meanwhile veterans, the elderly and infrastructure suck the hind tit.

About 51% of immigrant-led households receive at least one kind of welfare benefit, including Medicaid, food stamps, school lunches and housing assistance, compared to 30% for native-led households, according to the report from the Center for Immigration Studies, a group that advocates for lower levels of immigration.

Those numbers increase for households with children, with 76% of immigrant-led households receiving welfare, compared to 52% for the native-born.

If you drive north from El Paso towards Las Cruces you will see huge billboards, in Spanish, telling illegals who to call to get welfare. Even has the phone number to call posted on them. Shit you not, I am a New Mexican and have seen them myself. And I am what is called a “coyote”, a half breed around here, because I am Spaniard and English and Irish and Norwegian and who knows what else.

And I have been bi-lingual all my life. I can talk to the Mexicans as well as I talk to you here. Another funny thing is the Spanish who were born and raised here want the border closed down too. Round the illegals up and ship them out! They have seen the damage illegal immigration has caused and have no sympathy for them any more than I do. We have been here almost 300 years and don’t need any illegals coming here screwing things up any worse than they are. And we damned sure don’t need them living off our generosity.

Only 51%. B.S. I’ll bet it is more like over 91%.

If we only stopped the damn candy, many [not all] would have no incentive to come here. One of the simplest things our government could do, yet they refuse to. Shows you haw serious they are about stopping illegal entry into our country. By the way, many are not only on welfare, but working off the books at the same time. Makes you feel good, doesn’t it.

Of course the majority are on some type of free ride. It’s the dip shit way. Burden the working middle class with all the damn freeloaders. No work, no eat. It’s that simple for every last able bodied person getting government assistance. You’d be surprised how quickly those bad backs, nerves and all the other F#%^ing Bull shit excuse I hear every time giving someone a “ride” to the White Rock Hotel. My cruiser at times could be a mobile pharmacy.

If they’re here legally and on the path to citizenship, I’m OK with it. These are people that won’t be on it for long. At least the ones I’ve met. They’ll take the hand up for a short period, but they really don’t care to associate with(standing in line at the welfare office) the lifer scum that choose the Social Services Scamming career path.

Knew some young immigrants from Cambodia. They openly admitted that their career objective there was to get here by any means necessary and live off of welfare.

2000 census: nearly 1/3 of Cali residents were not born in the US. I’m sure it far higher now.
