In January, 2013, fully eight
million illegal alien migrants live, work and play in America in violation
of U.S. immigration laws. Their children attend American schools,
receive free medical care, transportation and food stamps. Those
eight million migrants displace America’s working poor from jobs.

At the same time, millions of illegal alien migrants subsist on U.S. taxpayer
funded welfare programs. Those illegal migrants feed, house and
medicate themselves on taxpayer dollars.
Dr. Steven Camorata at the Center for Immigration Studies exposed
a glaring problem: A report by the Center for Immigration Studies (www.cis.org)
reveals some startling figures about welfare and social-services use by
families headed by illegal 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. Click HERE to read the
“The document breaks down the immigrant (some are legal, most are illegal)
families by country of origin... and gives specific types of welfare and
percentages of the families that used it in 2010,” said Camorata.
“On average, fewer than 23 percent of native households use some type
of “welfare” which is specifically defined in the study. On the
other hand, 36 percent of households headed by immigrants (some legal,
most illegal) use some type of welfare. Some nationalities use "free"
social-services more than do others..
“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 (mostly illegal) using some
type of welfare.”
In light of this fraud against the American taxpayer, the Congress, along
with President Obama expect to pass a total amnesty for over 12 million
and as high as 20 million illegal aliens. At that point, they will be
able to tap into food stamps, assisted housing, medical care, education,
tutoring, ESL and many other aspects provided by the American taxpayer.
“This comprehensive study suggests there are more than 40 million immigrants
in the United States... of which more than a 25 percent of that number,
and the largest overall group, originate from Mexico,” said Camorata.
“While other independent experts tell us we now host more than fifty million
"immigrants" (not legal U.S. citizens, and the vast majority are illegals)...
this study estimates that approximately 28 percent of immigrants, or just
over 11 million, are within the United States illegally. This study
also suggests (intentionally conservative estimates) that nearly 50 percent
of those immigrants originating from Mexico and Central America are here
This report is very comprehensive... and examines various statistics of
immigrants currently residing in the United States. Overall,
state and federal aid use by immigrant families is much higher than that
used by families headed by citizens of the United States.
“Many states suffer more than others,” said Camorata. “California,
Texas, Illinois, and Florida taxpayers bear a huge burden. The large
population of immigrants, both legal and illegal in Eastern Washington
and even Spokane affects the state's budget dramatically.
“Meanwhile,the approaching fiscal cliff is forcing congress and the current
administration to contemplate huge cuts to services. Welfare use
by immigrants, both illegally and legally within the United States, should
be thoroughly examined and considered in making those cuts.”
