Obama Pays More Welfare to Illegal Aliens Than to US Citizens +Videos

Although proponents of immigration reform and tough border security are counting the days until the end of the Obama administration, if Hillary Clinton avoids prison and should become President, U.S. sovereignty will likely become sheer nostalgia. In fact, she will increase the amount of taxpayer money forked over to the pro-immigration cabal, according to experts in immigration enforcement and border control..

Under the current President, Barack Hussein Obama, family households that are headed by immigrants from Mexico or Central American countries obtained an average of $8,251 in U.S. taxpayer-funded welfare benefits which translates into a welfare benefit 86 percent higher than what households headed by U.S. citizens obtain in public assistance. The figures come from a new research report released this week by the non-profit, non-partisan Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) based in Washington, DC.

CIS based their report on the latest data available from the federal government’s Survey of Income and Program Participation. Illegal aliens’ households in particular use an average of $5,692 in welfare benefits each year, primarily due to government assistance provided to U.S.-born children of illegal aliens, CIS noted.

Households headed by immigrants from all countries, both classified as legal or as illegal, received an average of $6,234 in government benefits. That means that their share of welfare is 41 percent higher than the $4,431 received by the average native-born-headed household, according to the report.

Knowing exactly how much this equates to in total U.S. welfare dollars is difficult, since calculating the number of illegal aliens and illegal immigrant households isn’t an exact science.  In addition, there is no research report that accurately calculates the number of immigrants — legal or illegal — who are currently residing in the United States.

But in a similar report released in September 2015, CIS researchers estimated there were about 3.4 million households headed by illegal aliens in 2012. Based on CIS’s 2012 estimate, this means American taxpayers were ripped-off for nearly $19.4 billion in welfare benefits for illegal alien households that year alone.

While this number may seem staggering enough, it’s unlikely that the number of illegal immigrant households has dropped or remained the same over the last four years, especially since the illegal alien tsunami that was encouraged by President Barack Obama and the Democrats hungry for more Democratic Party registrants.

Meanwhile, superiors at the Homeland Security Department’s U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) reported that their enforcement agents apprehended: 11,116 members of illegal alien family units in FY2012; 24,855 family unit members in FY2013; 168,445 family unit members in FY2014; 99,838 family unit members in FY2015; and another 72,117 family unit members so far in FY2016, which ends on September 30.

In total, CBP claims that its agents apprehended 166,371 members of illegal alien family units in the last four and a half years, the vast majority of which were from countries other than Mexico – meaning the United States will not immediately deport them back to their home country, in fact they release them under their ‘catch and release’ policy.

“This study implies that two competing narratives about immigration are both true. Immigrants do indeed have a strong attachment to the labor force, as immigration advocates often point out. At the same time, however, immigrants consume a large amount of welfare spending, just as critics claim. The reason that both narratives are true is that the American welfare system has become increasingly focused on buttressing low-wage workers rather than supporting non-workers. Put more simply, welfare and low-wage work go together. Just as natives with low levels of education and large numbers of children are apt to consume welfare, immigrants with those same characteristics are also likely to be on welfare. A strong work ethic does not change this reality,” stated the researchers.

“I firmly… I believe that under Hillary Clinton, the Democratic Party will seek to put the finishing touches on changing America’s demographic makeup and use the money of their party’s useful idiots to pay the way of illegal aliens who are legalized with the stroke of a pen,” said former U.S. drug enforcement officer and military intelligence operative Samuel Joseph Stelzler. “Look how much damage Obama has done to this country in only a little more than seven years. Hell, they’re celebrating a GDP of +.02 as if it were once again the land of milk and honey.”

      Illegals are prohibited by Federal law from working in the U S and from obtaining welfare, food stamps, earned income tax credits, or child care credits. It is also illegal to transport illegals within the country or house them. The only thing stopping enforcement of these laws and the voluntary self deportation of all these illegals, is a President who is flooding the country with new Democrat voters and entitlement dependents in an effort to destroy the country as we know it, and a gutless Congress and court who has the power to stop it but refuses to do so out of fear and political correctness.
