$17K Per Illegal, More Than Retired Americans On SS – $103 Billion Wasted Could Build Wall

welfare support border wall 103 billion

It’s unlikely the Trump administration has cut off this illegal alien gravy train over the past seven months or we’d have heard the hysterical wailing from the left over their heartlessness in putting America first.

As one of his many financial and moral assaults on the American people, Hussein Obama, in his final year in office, and under a budget that expires the end of September, gave illegal alien teenagers more money per year than the average Social Security recipient, almost $3,000 more.

The Washington Examiner reported that Obama was seeking at the time $17,613 for every new illegal alien minor. That is $2,841 dollars more than the average Social Security retiree receives. After a lifetime of paying into the system, the average Social Security retiree receives $14,772.

The total expenditures for this one aspect of the open borders madness was projected at over $1.3 billion, almost equaling the $1.5 sought for initial construction of a border wall by Congress to eliminate this current wasteful throwing away of taxpayer money supporting illegals.

Of course the money allocated for the border wall, which includes additional agents, is deemed by Democrats as being “wasteful.” It’s actually much less than what is needed if we are serious about securing this nation, in the opinion of many and is already a concession to the obstructionist Democrats.

A 2016 report by the Center for Immigration Studies revealed the situation is even worse. They reported that illegal alien households receive an average of $5,692 in federal welfare benefits every year. The average “native” American or, more accurately, just “American,” recipient household collects $4,431.

CIS determined in an analysis of federal cost figures that all immigrant-headed households — legal and illegal — receive an average of $6,241 in welfare. That figure is 41% higher than Americans. The total cost is pegged at over $103 billion in welfare to household headed by “immigrants.”

The majority, at 51%, of “immigrant” households receive some type of welfare. That percentage is much less, though still high for American households at 30%. The very group that Hussein Obama provided over $17,000 per individual to, illegal border crashers welcomed in by the US, are among the most expensive leeches on the American people generally.

CIS studied figures from 2012 of “immigrants” from Mexico and Central America and found that the US taxpayer is on the hook for their supplemental support to the tune of $8,251 annually, a figure that is 86% higher than for Americans.

The report’s author, Jason Richwine, a Harvard educated immigration data analyst, stated, “While it is important for Americans to understand the rate of welfare use among immigrants, expressing that use in dollar terms offers a more tangible metric that is tied to current debates over fiscal policy. With the nation facing a long-term budgetary deficit, this study helps illuminate immigration’s impact on the problem.

Richwine noted “Illegal immigrants are barred from directly accessing most (though not all) welfare programs, but they can receive welfare through their U.S.-born children. Legal immigrant households, which have greater eligibility for welfare, cost $6,378 on average,” he wrote.

The report also determined that the average “immigrant” household consumes 33 percent more cash welfare, 57 percent more food assistance, and 44 percent more Medicaid dollars than the average native household. Housing costs are about the same for both groups.

That border wall looks like the most sound investment we could make in this country’s future. Maybe that’s why Democrats are against it, that and losing elections. We might even be able to build a wall on both the Mexican and Canadian borders for the $103 billion we’re spending in one year as things are.

    Cut all funds going to Mexico, and every third world country except Israel. Deport all illegals; then deport all isssslamests back to the insaneasylum they came from. I bet it is in the Billions of Our Tax Dollars.


  4. These illegals standing in line, in the picture, are all fat. By the way, let’s not forget the money that funds the hundreds of organizations that help these illegals. One of the many in my city rents an entire building in a high rent area. Non illegals desperately needing help are turned away. Taxpayers, REVOLT!

  5. I don’t know where the government gets their social security “average” payment of over $14,000. Most people I’ve talked to get between $9,000 and $11,000 after working 50 years and retiring with an average salary of $50,000.

  6. This is not about the wall. Trump has already made a deal for a good price. It’s about Congress refusing to fund it. It’s about conflating the issue of supporting people who have no rights to the welfare they’re getting and should be deported immediately. Making these 2 issues contingent upon each other is just a stall. Let’s talk about defunding Planned Parenthood. Or defunding the transgender policy of the military paying for the operation, the after care, the pychological therapy, and the continuing military payments to military transgenders who take time off (TIME OFF?!?) to recuperate and some who won’t even return to military duty because they enlisted just to get the freebies in the first place. Let’s just build the freaking wall already!
