...Census Bureau data reveals that most U.S. families headed by illegal immigrants use taxpayer-funded welfare programs on behalf of their American-born anchor babies.
Even before the recession, immigrant households with children used welfare programs at consistently higher rates than natives, according to the extensive census data collected and analyzed by a nonpartisan Washington D.C. group dedicated to researching legal and illegal immigration in the U.S. .
Basically, the majority of households across the country benefitting from publicly-funded welfare programs are headed by immigrants, both legal and illegal. States where immigrant households with children have the highest welfare use rates are Arizona (62%), Texas, California and New York with 61% each and Pennsylvania (59%). .

I thought that all illegals snuck over the border and broke the law so that they could become productive, hard working members of society who were just here to take the jobs that Americans won't do? Isn't that the narrative? I mean, it's not like they are putting a strain on our infrastructure or public coffers or anything, they are just trying to find jobs mopping floors and picking fruit right?"In England a king hath little more to do than to make war and give away places; which in plain terms, is to impoverish the nation and set it together by the ears. A pretty business indeed for a man to be allowed eight hundred thousand sterling a year for, and worshipped into the bargain! Of more worth is one honest man to society and in the sight of God, than all the crowned ruffians that ever lived."

Oh I get it the whole family down through generations is guilty if their ancestor commits a crime. That's the same argument for slave reparations.Originally Posted by Adam Smith - Wealth of Nations

The time is past when we could absorb a lot of low-skill immigrants (legal or otherwise) to work on our farms, open up new territory, and become part of the manufacturing industries. Those jobs are gone or contracting and we can only support so many service jobs. Jobs that Americans had better get used to doing since we have way too many people unemployed.
It's probably time that we limit legal immigration to people who are (or immediately can be ) self-supporting and who have either the means to open a business or the education to get good job. That way, we won't be paying entitlements to those immigrants or their children.
Everybody else who is here illegally needs to be deported and until that can happen employers who use illegal labor need to face jail time. We can't keep maintaining an underclass dependent on government largess forever. We need to reform and dismantle most of that for both citizens and illegal aliens alike.
