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.

    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.
