On average, these households receive $24,721 in welfare benefits each year. By the way, a woman and her boyfriend (both illegal immigrants), were caught dealing drugs and making around $70,000 a month while receiving welfare benefits.
Anyhow, illegal immigrants have no way of contributing towards our economy through payroll taxes. Many of these people aren't concerned with finding jobs (thus why many don't bother to learn English), because the fact is, being on welfare in the U.S. is better than where they came from. There are certainly some who come here to pursue the American dream but the question is how many are there? Is to some of them getting on government assistance in American dream?
The bottom line is some liberals are hiding from the facts and the facts are some illegal immigrants are putting a terrible burden on our economy because they are receiving far more than they're giving. They never paid into a system that is supposed to help those in need during hard times. If we addressed this drain on our welfare budget and the fraud that is taking place, we could actually start paying down our debt. Wouldn't that be special?
