One segment of the population should permanently support another segment; otherwise, they’re being heartless. That’s the socialist manifesto being bleated by mainstream media in response to rumors that President Trump is planning to overhaul welfare for immigrants.
Under a draft executive order, Trump is considering restricting welfare programs for immigrants (both legal and illegal).
Trump is also reportedly considering denying admission to, or deporting, immigrants who become permanent “public charges.”
This makes sense when you consider that Europe is buckling under a massive financial crisis due to its open-borders refugee policy. In Germany, 99% of Muslim migrants are still unemployed more than a year after arriving in the country.
It’s unclear if Trump plans to sign such an order, but the scuttlebutt already has leftists up in arms, who whine that “millions of Americans could go hungry” if the order goes forward.
“He would literally be taking food out of the mouths of babes,” Kevin Appleby of the Center for Migration Studies told the Washington Post.
According to the Center for Immigrant Studies, almost 50% of immigrant households depend on some type of welfare such as food stamps, housing assistance, Medicaid and school lunches. In contrast, just 30% of native-led households collect welfare.
Those numbers soar for households with children, with 76% of immigrant households receiving welfare. Welfare was launched during the Great Depression to help single mothers and widows with children, but has since devolved into a long-term financial crutch that is widely abused by many different groups.
Welfare was also meant to provide TEMPORARY financial aid to needy Americans, but has since become a lifelong compensation scheme that encourages dependence and unemployment.
That’s why President Trump is reshaping America’s conversation about immigration to prioritize immigrants who will actually help the country rather than become permanent financial drains (or worse, want to kill Americans).
Leftists repeatedly point to the Statue of Liberty quote “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free” to buttress their misguided notion that the U.S. is obligated to admit anyone who wants to come here. But that poem was written long before the United States had a $19 trillion debt and an illegal immigration crisis.
Think about it this way: When you host a dinner party, do you invite guests who will get along with your other guests? Or do you let in any random derelict off the street who will panhandle your family and friends or threaten to kill them?
