World’s smallest violin plays for illegals who are afraid to take food stamps
I remember a time, not so long ago,
when the liberal media's position was that illegal aliens didn't go on welfare;
in fact, we were repeatedly reassured, it was prohibited by law for illegals to
go on welfare.
Well, times have changed, and the
liberal media now feel so confident in pushing their illegal immigration agenda
that they not only trumpet the fact that illegals are on welfare programs, but
complain when not enough of them are taking taxpayer money!
It seems that the Trump
administration is preparing
a rule which would make it less likely to grant citizenship to illegal
aliens who are on welfare, and illegals, who are also scared of being deported,
are dropping out of welfare programs.
The Department of
Homeland Security has
drafted a regulation that would allow officials to factor in the use
of benefits – like WIC, SNAP, the Children's Health Insurance Program and even
housing and transit subsidies – when deciding whether to approve some visa or
green card applications.
draft of the proposal first published by Vox showed that immigrants
seeking an adjustment of status, such as those applying for permanent
residency, "must establish that they are not likely at any time to become
a public charge" or rely heavily on long-term government assistance, lest
they be deemed "inadmissible."
A study conducted by
Academies of Sciences showed that 45.3 percent of all immigrant-headed
households with children use a food assistance program.
In New Jersey, three
neighboring counties – Union, Essex and Hudson – have immigrant populations
above 25 percent, according to census
data. In those counties, participation in some elements of the Community
FoodBank of New Jersey's outreach programming fell by almost half between 2016
and 2017, according to Julienne Cherry, the bank's director of agency
A drop of 50%. We are
constantly told that there are "only" 11 million illegal aliens, but
when they are "above 25%" of the populations of some counties and
half the case load of welfare programs, there's got to be a lot more.
Maybe they were LEAVING the U.S, NOT entering!
By the way, the article above uses
the word "immigrant," which, when used by the media, has now become
virtually synonymous with "illegal alien."
Adele LaTourette, the
director of the New Jersey Anti-Hunger Coalition, said a church food pantry
specifically organized as a safe space for immigrants has seen
"unprecedented decline," as have reduced-cost breakfast and lunch
programs in schools.
I guess the immigrant safe space
isn't so safe.
Missing entirely from this article is
a discussion of whether we should be admitting immigrants, legally or
otherwise, who are a burden to the federal taxpayer.
We are constantly told how virtuous
illegal aliens are, how hardworking they are, and how much they contribute to
our economy. It troubles me that the above line of propaganda, that
virtuous illegals are not receiving welfare, is at cross purposes with the
propaganda that all illegals are big contributors to society. It
reminds me of 1984, when Winston Smith was forced to believe two
contradictory facts at the same time.
As for me, I would be more interested
in an exploration of counties that have greater than 25% "immigrant"
populations. After a certain point in time, citizens become a
minority in their own country. But don't expect a New York Times
article about that.
