Vast Majority of Nonwhite Invaders in America Using Welfare, New Report Shows

The majority of nonwhite invaders who have entered the US within the last few decades are on welfare, a new report has shown—destroying the leftist claim that they were coming to “help the economy.”

According to the report, released by the Washington DC-based Center for Immigration Studies, 76 percent of “immigrant” households with children receive welfare, a figure which dwarfs even the high American black welfare dependency.


The report, titled “Welfare Use by Immigrant and Native Households; An Analysis of Medicaid, Cash, Food, and Housing Programs” contained the following conclusions:

* In 2012, 51 percent of households headed by an immigrant (legal or illegal) reported that they used at least one welfare program during the year, compared to 30 percent of native households. Welfare in this study includes Medicaid and cash, food, and housing programs.

* Welfare use is high for both new arrivals and well-established immigrants. Of households headed by immigrants who have been in the country for more than two decades, 48 percent access welfare.

* Welfare use is still 46 percent for immigrants and 28 percent for natives. Not counting Medicaid, welfare use is 44 percent for immigrants and 26 percent for natives.

* Immigrant households have much higher use of food programs (40 percent vs. 22 percent for natives) and Medicaid (42 percent vs. 23 percent).

* Welfare use varies among immigrant groups. Households headed by immigrants from Central America and Mexico (73 percent), the Caribbean (51 percent), and Africa (48 percent) have the highest overall welfare use. Those from East Asia (32 percent), Europe (26 percent), and South Asia (17 percent) have the lowest.


* Many immigrants struggle to support their children, and a large share of welfare is received on behalf of U.S.-born children. However, even immigrant households without children have significantly higher welfare use than native households without children — 30 percent vs. 20 percent.

* In 2012, 76 percent of households headed by an immigrant who had not graduated high school used one or more welfare programs, as did 63 percent of households headed by an immigrant with only a high school education.

* The high rates of immigrant welfare use are not entirely explained by their lower education levels. Households headed by college-educated immigrants have significantly higher welfare use than households headed by college-educated natives — 26 percent vs. 13 percent.

* In the four top immigrant-receiving states, use of welfare by immigrant households is significantly higher than that of native households: California (55 percent vs. 30 percent), New York (59 percent vs. 33 percent), Texas (57 percent vs. 34 percent), and Florida (42 percent vs. 28 percent).

* The heavy use of welfare by less-educated immigrants has three important policy implications: 1) prior research indicates that illegal immigrants are overwhelmingly less-educated, so allowing them to stay in the country creates significant welfare costs; 2) by admitting large numbers of less-educated immigrants to join their relatives, the legal immigration system brings in many immigrants who are likely to access the welfare system; and 3) proposals to allow in more less-educated immigrants to fill low-wage jobs would create significant welfare costs.

* If one assumes that immigration is supposed to benefit the country, then immigrant welfare use should be much lower than natives’. Instead, the SIPP shows that, two decades after welfare reform tried to curtail immigrant eligibility, immigrant-headed households are using welfare at much higher rates than native households for most programs. Based on data collected in 2012, 51 percent of households headed by immigrants (legal or illegal) reported that they used at least one welfare program, compared to 30 percent of native-headed households. In addition to having higher welfare use, immigrant households pay less in taxes to the federal government on average than native households.

The center’s report is based on 2012 data from the Census Bureau’s Survey of Income and Program Participation. It includes immigrants who have become naturalized citizens, legal permanent residents, those on short-term visas and undocumented immigrants.

  1. Its the same in Britain, immigrants or invaders as we prefer to call them, especially well known work shy Muslims are milking our welfare system dry. One other thing that must be taken into account that is not mentioned in this report, but I feel is very important. Muslims, especially those it seems of Pakistani origin engage in in-breeding by marrying their first Cousins. The reason they do this is to keep their wealth in their own families. However this leads to a very high rate of babies being born with very severe genetic abnormalities, many of who die before they reach the age of five. The ones who do live become totally welfare dependant and need 24 hour around the clock care, which then in turn means the parent or parents will not work, so the cost to the taxpayer is ongoing and enormous. Muslims also engage in FGM female genital mutilation, which although illegal in Britain since 1984 is on the increase. NHS Hospitals are now having to use precious resources repairing the damage and infection that these Muslim females suffer as a direct result of their families engaging in this vile, filthy, practice. We the indigenous Brits do not practice this, but these disgusting foreign immigrants do, and we hsve to pay for it. Our Government does not prosecute these people, even though it is illegal, as they are too afraid of being accused of being racist. Its disgusting, these backward brainwashed parasites should be driven out of Britain back to their third world cess pits as they are fast turning my once beautiful Country into a third world infested shit hole. Its only a matter of time before Britain is totally ovverun with these very low skilled, backward, work shy, welfare dependant leeches. They are of no benefit to us whatsoever and we do not want them, but they are being forced on us. Britain now has a growing number of no go zones totally taken over and turned into filthy ghettos by these vile in breds who do nor assimilate, cannot speak English, and have no allegience to Britain whatsoever. They are here for one reason only to parasite off our Welfare, NHS and state Schools and will never contribute. They have well and truly brought their own way of life with them and its only a matter of time before our Country is changed totally, our culture, religion and laws wiped out, but then thats what the EU and New world Order want don’t they?

    1. Did it ever occur to the people on your island that your nation is # 1 in bringing this madness to whereit is today.

  2. Regarding the banners in the picture above”white racist go to Europe”,then who is going to pay their welfare anymore?Of course i am joking,but the real problem is why the government allows these things to happen, why the invaders are more important than their own citizens the taxpayers?As everywhere in the world politicians want uneducated and poor voters for their own interest.

  3. Regarding the photo accompanying this piece. Interesting how they want us sent back to Europe. Their placards are in English and Spanish. They claim to be indigenous people. Then why aren’t their signs in Mayan? Last I checked, Spain was and is still very European.
