The Golden Door Leads to the Welfare Office for Today's Immigrants
"The federal government allows immigrants to enjoy America's vast welfare safety net, from food stamps to housing benefits and Medicaid, and remain immune from repercussions to their immigration status. And on Monday, ranking Republican members of the Senate Finance, Agriculture, Budget, and Judiciary Committees wrote to Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton demanding to know why," the Daily Caller writes.
"Immigration regulations prohibit individuals "likely to become primarily dependent on the government for subsistence" from legal admittance into the United States. But non-citizens can avail themselves of dozens of welfare programs without the federal government considering them a dependency risk."
