This -- Vermont national review on line this is immigrant welfare of the new colossus. I this -- the much of this will be familiar to you but it's it's it's an interesting. Assortment that statistics in one place. By a woman named that Gillian K Mel short. Here's a perplexing pair of statistics compared with -- native born Americans immigrants are more likely to start a business. And they are also more likely to depend on welfare. I'm shocked to learn that. I didn't know immigrants on welfare who would have food water or upon. Immigrants are disproportionately. Dependent on welfare again I know you for this. Senator Jeff Sessions Republican Alabama crunch numbers from the department of agriculture and found that the number of months citizens on food stamps has risen to one point 634 million. Roughly quadrupling since 2001. In August the Center for Immigration Studies found that 36% of immigrant. Headed households received at least one major welfare benefit. Food assistance and Medicaid have become especially popular among immigrants. Our immigration rules are not crafted to weed out would be freeloaders and give preference highly skilled highly educated applicants. Thank you Ted Kennedy for that. Did the -- expansion of welfare has been particularly targeted at emigrants and that represents a major cultural shift this is this enough this is not Ted -- doing so much as Barack Obama -- meet Ted Kennedy got the ball rolling but. It's real the it's really become an avalanche cents a Barack Obama and he wants he wants these people depend on welfare wants new people and using government services they need government interpreter is whether they're being arrests that are there were in the emergency room where there were in prison. But there are in school these are all lot of people who watch the people local service serve the illegal alien population. They all become members of the public sector union contributing of their dues which are than. Wandered basically legally to the Democrat party. And this is how they -- elections now. Govern government marketing has shifted. In any number of so called outreach programs both public and private now seek to persuade immigrants to utilize the benefits newly available to them. Legal immigrants are potentially eligible for dozens of welfare programs and you'll even illegal aliens can benefit indirectly provided at least one member of their house sold this year legally. -- program established in 2004. Insurers that Mexican consulates on US soil promote food stamp benefits to immigrants. He imagine any other country in the world I can imagine an American. Embassy in any any country in the world but telling American immigrants by country how to get welfare in this country. Can you imagine American Consulate in Mexico telling American how to get on welfare and Mexico. Earlier this year the Department of Agriculture created a span Spanish language Novella ad promoting these snapped supplemental nutrition assistance program.

I'm guessing none of them were Mexicans either current not a home for a Spanish -- The federal government also largely ignores educational achievement. Which is probably the biggest indication of whether an immigrant won't become a the burden on the state taxpayers. Immigrants without a high school education dropped three dollars and benefits for every one dollar they add to the public purse. And those who hold that diploma but not a college degree aren't much better says Robert Rector an expert on the US welfare system and immigration. At The Heritage Foundation. Such uneducated unskilled immigrants quote are just a huge drain on society basically from the moment they cross the border. Said Robert Rector. He's one of the it is people who studies immigration. Steve cammarata the director of research for the Center for Immigration Studies says if you're unskilled native born or immigrant you're going to have a hell of a time in the US. But our system is certainly not designed to bring in highly skilled people that's for sure. Why don't we wanna when courage people commend the country if they're gonna become burdens on on society. There's only one possible reason you would bring them into the country and that's so but they would die so they could vote. To continue the a redistribution of wealth from the people who work for a living brought to the people who don't work for a living. That's the only possible reason.
