Drug testing vs cost. Federal law mandates that employers use at minimum an urinalysis test kit. Cost is between $30/50 per kit. Just Tennessee has 1.28 million recieving food stamps. Using $40 per kit would cost taxpayers $51,200,000. Testing monthly would cost 614.4 million per year.

Thats just the start up cost. Many more varable costs to mention. One being how many government workers would Tennessee need to hire just to administer drug testing.

We, the taxpayers, are screwed. LBJs war on poverty in 1965 was a total failure. Maybe good intentions but a negative outcome.

The cost of hospitalization for malnourished children & the spread of famine & diseases alone would make it to republicans also.

If you're on government assistance it should be mandatory birth control injections. Keep from producing more dead beat parents.

As the debate around immigration, a wall along the Mexican border, and migrant amnesty spills into the general election, a study released Monday by a think tank that aims to reduce immigration estimates that immigrant households receive 41 percent more federal welfare than households headed by native-born citizens.
The Center for Immigration Studies'(CIS) analysis builds on an earlier study the organization published in September.
The author of the more recent study, public policy analyst Jason Richwine, is no stranger to controversy. In 2013, he was dismissed from his position at the Heritage Foundation after it was revealed that his PhD dissertation at Harvard, titled "IQ and Immigration Policy," whose abstract asserted that "[t]he average IQ of immigrants in the United States is substantially lower than that of the white native population, and the difference is likely to persist over several generations."

In its analysis of a 2012 US Census Bureau survey, the Center for Immigration Studies estimates that average welfare cost of a household headed by a legal or illegal immigrant was $6,234 in 2012, and $5,692 for households headed only by illegal immigrants. By comparison, the average welfare cost of a household headed by a natural-born citizen is $4,431, the study estimates. In particular, according to the study, immigrants receive more cash, food, and Medicaid welfare than households headed by natural-born citizens, even though their housing costs are roughly the same, the study estimates. Of all immigrant households, the study found immigrants from Mexico and Central America received the most welfare of all immigrants, with $8,251 in 2012.
"As long as the US continues to admit large numbers of low-skill immigrants (legal or illegal), then immigrant welfare consumption will remain high," writes Mr. Richwine. "Importing new clients of the welfare state likely makes it even harder to roll back."
Immigration policy analyst Alex Nowrasteh of the Cato Institute, who criticized the center's previous analysis, tells The Christian Science Monitor this recent study is "fatally flawed" in the same way.
"If they actually wanted to count how much welfare immigrants use, they should have just counted the immigrants and the welfare they use, instead of the households of US citizens that is an apples-to-apples comparison," says Mr. Nowrasteh.
"If we should count them, shouldn't we also count the welfare use of grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and great-great-grandchildren of immigrants?," wrote Nowrasteh, in his criticism of the September study. "Such a way of counting would obviously produce a negative result but it would also not be informative."
Nowrasteh also faulted the study for not including Medicare and Social Security programs in its comparison.

Does anyone believe that Dems truly care about welfare of dreamers or illegals? They want their votes pure and simple. Legal Hispanics make up 18% of population and growing.

Democratic Party used to be the party for the common working man. I still wonder why black organizations support illegal immigration. With 13% of the population blacks are getting short end of stick. That wont change as long as you keep voting 95% democratic.
