We don't need any more Welfare leeches

But that's what we're getting.

A majority of “non-citizens,” including those with legal green card rights, are tapping into welfare programs set up to help poor and ailing Americans, a Census Bureau finding that bolsters President Trump’s concern about immigrants costing the nation. 
In a new analysis of the latest numbers, from 2014, 63 percent of non-citizens are using a welfare program, and it grows to 70 percent for those here 10 years or more, confirming another concern that once immigrants tap into welfare, they don’t get off it. 

That means that those people aren't here to "improve their life", unless that means sucking off of the productive citizens of this country like fat ticks on a dog.

“Concern over immigrant welfare use is justified, as households headed by non-citizens use means-tested welfare at high rates. Non-citizens in the data include illegal immigrants, long-term temporary visitors like guest workers, and permanent residents who have not naturalized. While barriers to welfare use exist for these groups, it has not prevented them from making extensive use of the welfare system, often receiving benefits on behalf of U.S.-born children,” added the Washington-based immigration think tank. 
The numbers are huge. The report said that there are 4,684,784 million non-citizen households receiving welfare.
There is absolutely no reason in the world why we should bring people to this country and then pay them to stay here.  Now many vets are refused treatment at the VA?  How many people in this country are homeless because they can't get the psychiatric help they need?  This is insanity.  We need to cut this flow of Welfare leeches off, and we need to do it now. 

Send them back if need be.  But not one more fucking dime should go to people who weren't born here, and came here of their own volition.

i've been saying for decades there should be a rolling system. if it takes $15 an hour to support 1 family and the local minimum wage is $8, you get $7 assistance, as long as youre employed. get a raise, your assistance goes down. quit? your assistance stops. get fired thru your fault? it stops. have a kid? sucks to be you. i've been unemployed for 3 months. i knew i was gonna leave the place, so i started budgeting and saving to cover this over a year ago. welfare is and should be embarrassing. it really needs to be temporary.
