Taxpayers in southern states are actually funding welfare payments to Mexican nationals who do not even reside in the US, and this is abetted by Mexican government officials. Budgets for State welfare are being squeezed and those truly in need of assistance are suffering because budget money (despite what the Democrats would have you believe) is finite.
At what point did a noble welfare system become a method of funding illegal migrants to subsist in a nation in which they have no legal right to remain? When money is spread thinner, more people suffer. The new government should be making it a priority to look after the poorest in society, but let’s start with the people who actually have a right to assistance first. If not, it should come from the US Foreign Aid budget directly.
We finally have a president who can take a stance against entitlements. Donald Trump should cut illegals off from receiving welfare and government assistance because our system cannot handle paying out more than it receives.
