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.
CDC’s out of wedlock birth rate for Hispanics is 80.6 out of 1,000 (8%). And 45% of all Americans don’t have tax liability because they don’t have high enough incomes. Mexicans do not come to the US, whether legally or not, to collect welfare. They come here for jobs and a better life for their tight-knit families. Keep driving that wedge between whites and Hispanics and we’ll never see any of that vote back.
The night we took our puppy to the e-vet hospital in Winchester VA, an Hispanic family brought in a Pit who’d been hit by a car.
While we had to max out our cards, empty our wallets and *still* beg for money to cover her expenses, they simply paid cash for a fixed up dog who had two surgeries, multiple pins in his hind legs and numerous stitches.
It had to have cost them several thousand dollars, based on the $1300 we laid out just for an exam, worm check, CBC, IV drips and overnight stay [at 90 per 6 hour increments] and some antibiotics and prescription food.
They didn’t look like doctors or lawyers.
I also see them at local car auctions in droves, laying out wads of cash for used vehicles.
WTH are they getting all this money?
That sounds just like the Whitehut’s propoganda message about the life of “Julia”.
I see you’ve got better, and more astonishing, numbers than I do.
These should be central to the amnesty debate—only in part because they demonstrate that having the GOP give in with another massive amnesty will do absolutely nothing to increase the small percentage of votes they win from the demographic.
