About half of immigrant households get at least one welfare benefit: Report


STUART: REPORT FROM THE CENTER OF IMMIGRATION STUDIES, 51% OF IMMIGRANTS GET ONE KIND OF WELFARE BENEFIT. WE HAVE DAN STEIN, PRESIDENT OF AMERICANS FOR IMMIGRATION REFORM. DAN, WHAT KIND OF WELFARE ARE WE TALKING ABOUT? THE DATA IS BASED ON CENSUS INCOME AND POPULATION PARTICIPATION SURVEY. WE’RE TALKING ABOUT MEDICAID, FOOD STAMPS, SCHOOL LUNCH PROGRAMS, VARIETY OF ANTI-POVERTY PROGRAMS. EVEN IMMIGRANT HEADED HOUSEHOLDS WHO HAVE BEEN HERE MORE THAN 20 YEARS. THEY SHOW 48% OF THOSE OBVIOUSLY PUBLIC EDUCATION IS A BIG COST HERE. STUART: WAIT A SECOND IS, DAN. NOW THESE FOLKS, YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT, THEY’RE LEGAL IMMIGRANTS? THESE ARE NOT ILLEGALS ACROSS THE BORDER, STOOD IN LINE, DID PAPERWORK, GOT GREEN CARDS AND ON WELFARE, HALF OF THEM?>>LEGAL AND ILLEGAL. SO IT IS COMBINED. THE POINT IS, LEGAL IMMIGRANTS, COMING HERE, GET ON WELFARE, IN LARGE PART, IF YOU HAVE TWO A FAMILY WILL NEED PUBLIC ASSISTANCE OF SOME KIND OR ANOTHER, FOOD STAMPS IN PARTICULAR. IT IS REALLY BASICALLY INCOME REDISTRIBUTION PROGRAM GOING ON, AT A TIME WITH AMERICANS OUT OF THE LABOR FORCE. WAGES ARE FLAT AND STAGNANT. YOU SEE TREMENDOUS IMPACT OF DISPLACED AMERICANS, REDUCED WAGES, BUT COSTING TAXPAYERS MILLIONS OF DOLLARS. STUART: WHAT WOULD YOU DO ABOUT IT? YOU COME HERE LEGALLY OR ILLEGALLY, NO WELFARE PERIOD?>>STUART, YOU SEE BROAD VARIATIONS WHERE PEOPLE COME FROM, CERTAIN REGIONS OF THE WORLD. CENTRAL AMERICANS HAVE VERY HIGH WELFARE USE PARTICIPATION RATE, SOUTHEAST ASIANS MUCH LOWER. ARE YOU SELECTING FOR SKILLS COMPETITION OR MERIT SYSTEM? ARE YOU SELECTING IMMIGRANTS WHAT THEY KNOW, NOT WHO THEY KNOW NEPOTISM BASED BAD, MOVE TO MERIT-BASED SYSTEM. DON’T HAVE EXTENDED FAMILY, BROTHERS, SISTERS, THAT DESKILLS THE FLOW, COSTS TAXPAYERS MILLIONS AND BILLIONS OF DOLLARS, DISPLACES AMERICAN WORKERS. STUART: AM I RIGHT IN SAYING THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP FAVORS AN IMMIGRATION PLAN, AN IMMIGRATION SYSTEM, THAT WOULD NOT ALLOW SOMEONE WHO COMES HERE LEGALLY, TO WALK AWAY WITH FOOD STAMPS OR EARNED INCOME TAX CREDIT OR IS THAT THE SYSTEM THAT THE PRESIDENT WANTS, NO WELFARE FOR IMMIGRANTS, PERIOD? THAT IS WHAT HE WANTS?>>HE WANTS AN IMMIGRATION SERVES WE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE FOR A CHANGE. TALKING ABOUT REVITALIZING THE OLD PUBLIC CHARGE BAR FOR IMMIGRANTS USING WELFARE. THEY’RE OUT OF HERE. THIS WOULD BE VERY CONTENTIOUS. THAT IS WHAT THE LAW HAS BEEN THE EARNING ABILITY TO MAKE A CONTRIBUTION AND EARN ENOUGH TO COVER THE COSTS AND NOT DRAIN THE SOCIAL SAFETY NET. STUART: DO YOU THINK THE PUBLIC OPINION, THE TIDE IS SWITCHING A LITTLE, MORE TOWARDS YOUR POSITION AWAY FROM THE LEFT?>>THERE IS NO QUESTION ABOUT IT. THIS IS SLAM DUNK, THIS AND TRADE ARE TWO ISSUES GOT TRUMP HILLARY CLINTON LOST IN KEY STATES, PEOPLE LIKE THEY HAVE BEEN LEFT BEHIND. WHETHER GLOBALIZATION OF FINANCIAL MARKETS, LOSS OF NATIONAL UNITY OR COHERENCE OR THE SENSE OF SOCIAL LICENSE OF AMERICANS WANT AND YEARN FOR A PATRIOTIC NATIONALISM THAT THINKS ABOUT THE WELFARE OF AMERICANS AND IMPORTANCE OF AN ECONOMIC SYSTEM THAT ACTUALLY RAISES UP THE LIVING STANDARDS FOR AMERICAN WORKERS. NOT JUST FOREIGN-BORN. STUART: DAN, WE HEAR YOU.

  4. Get control on vote fraud

  5. The greed in the USA is limitless
    For profit prison and for profit health care, guns everywhere, hypocrites running their mouth of big media platform
    If you want people to become independent fine, I`m with you, but shaming them and kicking their a$$ is a bad way to do it
    It's better to reward good behavior and lending a helping hand, then shaming people weaknesses … to get something done,
    Video games know this … animals trainers too, you will get better result if you reward good behaviors … anyways
    Peace and good luck

  6. and why do we have any of them even in our country they are draining our taxpayers dry. if you pay any taxes you are getting screwed by illegal immigrants.

  7. My family came here from Europe. they waited their turn to get here by being legal residents of Canada for ten years. The family was broken up twice to get to the US. They had to have over $25,000 (in 2018 dollars) in their bank account to move here– and this was a single mother, working class household with one teenager and two children.

    No immigrants should be eligible for any kind of welfare program.

  8. Take care of American homeless/poor people our legal citizen's only then should we look into merit based immigration..zero tolerance illegal aliens!

  9. How about all immigrants and decendents of immigrants get out of US and go back to their original countries.

  10. I came here as a LEGAL immigrant, that was properly vetted, 50 years ago. Before our swearing in for our permanent visa we were schooled about what America expected in return. And part of that was that we were expected to be law abiding, hard working & contributing members of society. How did it come to this? Nobody even offered that if Mama or I started a business we would get a 7 year tax break…a practice which I think should be abolished. Immigrants have more chances at employment than ever…the welfare system is also broken.

  11. … meanwhile Soylent Green Socialist Bernie Sanders is rallying up his "Welfare Queens" to Fight in 2024.

  12. I know People who live in Mexico and only cross to get incometaxes. Even though they do not work in the U.S.

  13. While my daughter.cant get her diabetic or thyroid meds. Obummer care helped the insurence companies ramp up prices a lab test.that was 20$ 8 yrs ago is now 500

  14. I absolutely agree with that! Also if an American citizen sponsored a foreigner for a permanent or immigrant visa that same citizen should have the ability to revoke the visa if the foreigner turns bad!

  15. Watch "What Cost Are You Willing To Pay? Your Answer May Decide If America Becomes a Third-World Country" on YouTube

  16. And these immigrants were so valuable for the economy! The truth is that these immigrants are no-nuts and that is the reason why they went to the US. MAGA! with quality immigrants and not these no-nuts Mexicans!

  17. Obama care fined Americans when they didn’t have health insurance and yet he gave free health care to illegals!

  18. You will never rid the US of us Mexicans! Get that through your thick nazi skulls, we have neen in the southwestern US before you whites came, we taught you whites how to be cowboys, look it up, we taught you how to survive out here back before the old west, surrender the southwestern US back to Mexico if you dont want us living in the US, that simple

  19. I honestly don't have a problem with (temporary) welfare programs for US citizens. Liberal, conservative, or in between. I don't care. If you're a citizen you come first. We've got real problems here at home that need solved before we solve the rest of the world's problems. America first dangit!

  20. wow fox telling us to hate immigrants so cut legal migration or what ? support trumps immigration agenda

  21. ιғ yoυ go тo yoυr local welғare oғғιce,yoυ ғιnd мeхιco тнere. мeхιco ιѕ тryιng тo тaĸe over тнe υ.ѕ.

  22. OK. EVERYONE including FOX needs to STOP callling illegal aliens "Immigrants." You are muddying the waters and playing into the Politically correct policing of language by doing so! So I'm guessing the title of this video should actually be "HALF OF ILLEGAL ALIEN HOUSEHOLDS get at least one welfare benefit." Because you're apparently not capable of using the proper wordage, you're not giving an accurate assessment! LEGAL immigrants wouldn't figure into your calculations.
