It is estimated that health care to illegal immigrants cost Texas nearly $100 million, and that at least 60 thousand babies are born to illegal immigrants each year in the state of Texas. In Harris County 3 out of 5 babies are born from illegal immigrants. 33% of immigrants access some major welfare programs.
How Are Immigrants On Welfare?
Some people mistakenly think that immigrants are not eligible for welfare. Several years ago, Congress did attempt to render immigrants ineligible for most forms of welfare. However, subsequent backpedaling by Congress has undone most of those reforms. Furthermore, many immigrant families get welfare through the eligibility of their anchor babies. The fact that benefits are often received on behalf of their children means that it is very difficult to prevent illegal households from accessing the programs. Eight percent of all babies born in the U.S. in 2008 belonged to illegal immigrant parents, and many of the programs illegals use most extensively are likely to be politically very difficult to cut; such as the Women Infants and Children (WIC) nutrition program. Other costs, such as incarceration for crimes, are unavoidable and unbelievable! The Government Accountability Office: investigation into the criminal records of 55,000 illegal aliens revealed:
An average of 8 arrests and 13 offenses each per individual.
45% were arrested for drug or immigration offenses;
15% for property-related offenses such as burglary, larceny-theft, motor vehicle theft, or property damage;
12% were for murder, robbery, assault, and sex-related crimes. Studies have estimated that 81 percent of adult illegal aliens have no more than a high school education. It is also estimated that 79 percent of all adult illegal immigrants are Hispanic. It seems almost certain that if they are allowed to remain in the country, our laws, our heritage, and our race will be destroyed.
