It’s called common sense – President Trump Wants Law On The Books Followed Restricting Welfare To Immigrants #Trump #AmericaFirst

Wayne Dupree 9 hours ago

President Trump said he was bringing back law and order if he got elected so why not enforce the law on the books when it comes to handing out welfare to immigrants?

In 1996, a law named the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act was passed to create a timeframe before immigrants were able to receive government benefits. It has not been enforced until now.

How about “immigrants are NOT entitled to government provided services, benefits or rights UNTIL they legally become citizens”? Who could argue with that? Oh, right… liberals.


With that amount of cheese, they should all be sending their kids to the best daycares and schools money can buy, learning English, and giving back to the community, right?

Each illegal immigrant costs the US net money, but the Democrats are trying to compensate for this by importing them in volume to make up the shortfall in money.

Immigrants “must be able to support themselves financially,” the president said at an Iowa rally Wednesday.

The average federal welfare benefits of immigrant-headed households, legal or illegal, is $6234, according to the Center for Immigration Studies.

Fifty-one percent of immigrant-headed households used at least one welfare program in 2012, as compared to 30 percent of native households, the Center reported.

The president was actually only reiterating an ill-enforced 1996 law.

The ‘‘Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act of 1996’’ declares immigrants “not eligible for any Federal means-tested public benefit for a period of 5 years beginning on the date of the alien’s entry.”

“This is the humane way to go,” Steve Forbes said on “The Cost of Freedom.” He said that welfare reform in the 1990s worked, and the country should hearken back to that system.

Budget Director Mick Mulvaney echoed Trump’s sentiments in May when he rejected the idea that government welfare is the only way to show compassion.

“We’re no longer going to measure compassion by the number of programs or the number of people on those programs, but by the number of people we help get off of those programs,” Mulvaney said.


Our ancestors arrived here and worked their butts off to support themselves and their families and didn’t beg from the Government and that includes slavery.
