What a ridiculous thing to say. Mexicans work their asses of, at least for the most part. Quit your race baiting.
I think since most do not abort their children, they have larger families than many today, so it would make sense they’re spending more than average.
This is a huge community being sucked into the morass of a mammoth welfare state. Consider a typical Hispanic household with children.
It is headed by an unmarried women who receives food stamps and public housing or rent supplements to feed and house her children.
Her kids are educated free from Head Start to K-12 and fed by school breakfast and lunch programs. Should they graduate high school, Pell Grants and student loans are there for college.
For cash, mom gets welfare checks. If she takes a job, she will receive an earned income tax credit to supplement her income. If she loses her job, she can get 99 weeks of unemployment checks.
For health care, there is Medicaid and Obamacare. And like 45 percent of all Hispanic households, she has no federal income tax liability.
It's not race baiting, it's the facts.
An entire one-third of US welfare recipients reside in CA.
Nearly 60% of Mexican immigrants—legal and illegal—are on some form of welfare. That’s more than double the total non-Hispanic American rate.
