More than a quarter of the $1 trillion spent on welfare in the United States goes directly to the households of Illegal immigrants. And two out of three jobs created in the last four years went to immigrants. Those are jobs that would lift Americans out of poverty, and reduce welfare spending still more. Instead, just last month, the unemployment rate among black Americans rose to 14 percent.
The problem isn’t only illegal immigration: Most legal immigrants use at least one welfare program. The problem is simply too much immigration. In fact, while many illegal immigrants have gone home since the start of the recession, the number of legal immigrants in America continues to explode.
Some immigration makes sense. But such massive levels of immigration are keeping Americans trapped in poverty. And they’re exploding the federal deficit, not to mention busting Texas’s own budget!
Illegal and Legal immigrants are sucking America’s resources dry!! Tell them to stop importing poverty.
America spends more than a trillion dollars on programs to help our own unemployed and disadvantaged. So why are we importing millions of immigrants to compete for jobs and resources with them?
Congress should help unemployed and disadvantaged Americans get decent-paying work, not import millions of new workers to take entry-level jobs. The U.S. Commission on Immigration Reform, chaired by civil rights activist Barbara Jordan, called for cutting annual legal immigration in half. This would still be double the historical average, and allow for plenty of reasonable immigration. The primary reason for the cutting immigration that the commission cited was that every time immigration levels have been high — and they are higher in the past decade than every — wages fell and poverty rose. With so many millions of unemployed Americans and the nation in such dire fiscal crises, the commission’s findings are even more important now than ever.
As Congress considers many “immigration reform” proposals, keep in mind that the reforms we need are those that result in more job openings, less poverty, and lower spending.
Stop immigration until Obama and his Demon-Rat/Communists stop killing jobs for Legal Americans!
The SOB is supposed to do what is best for us legal, law abiding, American taxpayers who pay his salary and Congress’ too, NOT allow Illegals to take all of our jobs and suck our resources dry by taking welfare, housing, and health care, that should be available only for Legal Americans!!
