Should Tax Dollars Be Used On Welfare For ILLEGALS?

The Center For Immigration Studies recently revealed some shocking statistics involving immigrants and welfare. They discovered that 51% of immigrant-headed households used at least one government assistance program. This includes food stamps, medical assistance, and cash.
Their study showed:
“1. The average household headed by an immigrant (legal or illegal) costs taxpayers $6,234 in federal welfare benefits, which is 41 percent higher than the $4,431 received by the average native household.
“2. The average immigrant household consumes 33 percent more cash welfare, 57 percent more food assistance, and 44 percent more Medicaid dollars than the average native household. Housing costs are about the same for both groups.
“3. At $8,251, households headed by immigrants from Central America and Mexico have the highest welfare costs of any sending region — 86 percent higher than the costs of native households. Illegal immigrant households cost an average of $5,692 (driven largely by the presence of U.S.-born children), while legal immigrant households cost $6,378.
