According to the Census Bureau of the Center for Immigration and noted by Rush Limbaugh, 57 percent of all Mexican immigrant families receive welfare benefits. That does not take into account any other benefits. The notion that immigrants who come to America illegally for opportunities to work is ridiculous, left-wing propaganda.
Why would Democrats perpetuate such lies? I believe it is because many of those immigrants will vote Democratic once legalized, thus ending any hopes of a conservative winning an elected office.
That will lead to the destruction of this nation as we know it. I can see it is on that path now.
That brings up the obvious question: why do Republicans support such a move? It defies common sense.
According to something I heard on the the Laura Ingraham radio show, illegal immigrants cost Americans $1,117 per household — something we cannot afford.
Some proponents of legalization and citizenship (voting rights) tout statistics showing many of those immigrants pay taxes. Make no mistake, the burden of those collecting benefits far outweighs any contribution. Hospitals hire bilingual staff to assist a new mother to obtain benefits after birth. Rush Limbaugh claims that they go straight from the hospital to the welfare office.
I am fed up with people who will not work and then take my tax dollars to live a life free of the stress from everyday burdens of supporting themselves like the rest of us. Most people who work are struggling to keep themselves out of bankruptcy.
