57% of Mexican immigrants are on welfare -

Examiner

A report by the Center for Immigration Studies (www.cis.org) reveals some startling figures about welfare use by families headed by immigrants.

“In 2010, 36 percent of immigrant-headed households used at least one major welfare program (primarily food assistance and Medicaid) compared to 23 percent of native households,” summarizes the document which was published by the Center for Immigration Studies and examines a wide variety of topics relating to immigration.

The document breaks down the immigrant families by country of origin and gives specific types of welfare and percentages of the families that used it in 2010. An average fewer than 23 percent of native households use some type of “welfare” which is specifically defined in the study. 36 percent of households headed by immigrants use some type of welfare. Families headed by immigrants from specific countries or areas of the world range from just over 6 percent for those immigrants from Great Britain to more than 57 percent of those from Mexico using some type of welfare.

    You know, John McCain told us that Mexicans are all social cons that are just itching to vote Republican, if we would just stop being so racist and let more of them in, so they can get on welfare, and then vote Republican like most people on welfare do.
    If you don’t agree with that assessment, then you are a racist.
    So much for the hard-working immigrant myth!

    Can we set fire to the drapes of the GOP already?

    Some years ago I remember seeing a video shot from the deck of a Coast Guard Cutter, intercepting a raft adrift in the Florida straights. As the Cutter approached, the Cubans stood and began waving their arms…yelling,”We want dollars”, over and over again.

    Not, we want freedom or we want a job or education…but dollars.

    When this ATM has been exhausted, will those same folks say, “Please allow me go into battle in defense of this country, to repay for some of the freebies I’ve received”? …probably not.

    When you take out the single population, who aren’t supposed to be eligible for welfare anyway, 75% of Mexican immigrant families are on welfare. Thank you Uncle Sucker.

    We all know why they are on welfare. They can’t get a job in this ‘raaaaacist’ country, right??
    Mr. Happy is right-they are cons.

    And when they’re fed, clothed, medicated, housed, and spoken to in their own language they fill our main streets in cities across America to hold parades celebrating what a great country Mexico is.

    My friend with a dual citizenship will tell you, if theres a scam for free money, they’re already doing it or know how.

    They come here work for cash and then sign up for welfare foostamps and housing, so now the tax free $8 or $10 dollar an hour job is like $20 with no taxes.
    and if Juan gets caught which is almost rare or impossible, because he can’t speak english and has no ID, he then changes his name and SS# and is Pablo and starts the scam all over again, and with 5 kids Pablo gets much mucho money for the family.
