You The Taxpayer Pays

The taxes you pay are what the government collects and gives away.

43 Per Cent Immigrants On Welfare After Two Decades

Slow path to progress for U.S. immigrants 43% on welfare after 20 years .  Washington Times.

A very sad commentary on the state of affairs for immigrants.  Legal or illegal. 

“Look, we know a lot of these folks are going to be poor, we get it. But don’t tell the public it’s all going great, which is the story line I think a lot of people want to sell,” Mr. Camarota said. “There is progress over time. Every measure shows improvement over time, but still, the situation does not look like we’d like it to look, particularly for the less-educated. They lag well behind natives even when they’ve been here for two decades, and that is very disconcerting.”


Federal law requires that the government deny immigrant visas to potential immigrants who are likely to be unable to support themselves and thereby become public charges.

If federal law was being upheld, would the rate of immigrants on welfare after so many years be so much higher than for natives?

The center found that use of public benefits varied dramatically based on where immigrants originated.

Mexicans were most likely to use means-tested benefit programs, with 57 percent, while 6 percent of those from the United Kingdom did. The rate for native-born Americans is 23 percent.

Mr. Camarota said a key dividing line is educational attainment. Immigrants who have been in the U.S. 20 years and who have bachelor’s degrees or higher make slightly more than the average native-born American. But immigrants with only high school educations make less no matter how long they have been in the U.S.

Is education the key to improving the lot of immigrants?  Who pays?

America pays either in the form of taxes to support welfare, or taxes to support education of those with insufficient education  that could mean the difference between a low or higher paying job.
