Conservatives have been told by Democrats time and time again that they are the least compassionate of the two parties, that they are the party of “NO.”
Unfortunately, what Democrats will never get out of their heads is that conservatives are the most giving of their time, money, and talents to others, we just don’t claim the federal government as our primary source of charity.
You see, Democrats have no problem being charitable with other people’s money, namely, the American taxpayer, so it should come as no surprise to find out that our taxpayer dollars are going towards “charity cases” before our own citizens!
From The Washington Examiner:
Illegal immigrant households receive an average of $5,692 in federal welfare benefits every year, far more than the average “native” American household, at $4,431, according to a new report on the cost of immigration released Monday.
The Center for Immigration Studies, in an analysis of federal cost figures, found that all immigrant-headed households — legal and illegal — receive an average of $6,241 in welfare, 41 percent more than native households. As with Americans receiving benefits such as food stamps and cash, much of the welfare to immigrants supplements their low wage jobs.
“While it is important for Americans to understand the rate of welfare use among immigrants, expressing that use in dollar terms offers a more tangible metric that is tied to current debates over fiscal policy. With the nation facing a long-term budgetary deficit, this study helps illuminate immigration‘s impact on the problem,” wrote the report’s author Jason Richwine, a Harvard educated analyst of immigration data.
With President Trump taking the lead on illegal immigration and working to deport every illegal alien back to their home country, we can finally start to breath a sigh of relief and know that our taxpayer dollars are not going to be wasted on those who do not deserve them.
Maybe now the Democrats will finally figure out that charity starts at home, and that to fund more charities, we need to give unnecessary tax funds back to THE PEOPLE!
