RE :”Hispanic immigrant households in particular have a very high rate of welfare use: 50 percent. This is relevant to the current debate over amnesty, as the Department of Homeland Security estimates that about 80 percent of illegal immigrants come from Latin America.
The government thinks (and I agree) that about 90 percent of all illegal immigrants are included in Census Bureau data that is used to calculate the rates at which immigrants use welfare, but that changes those rates by only a few percentage points. Legal immigrants tend to use programs across the board, while illegal immigrants tend to use only the food programs and Medicaid. For those wanting a longer discussion of the use of public services by illegals, see this report. The analysis reveals that those with the highest welfare use are less-educated immigrants residing in the country legally. This is the category that most illegal immigrants will fall into if granted legal status. By itself this fact should give amnesty advocates pause.”
Really informative article.
This is also how Dems got the electoral advantage over Republicans.
and you might as well forget deficit reduction or (upper end) tax cuts if you want these new immigrants votes
I didnt see any strategy last year by Republicans to split this group apart(against each other) , it seemed that the strategy was to ignore them. Romney was covertly caught with the 47% comment but never tried to make it into a populist theme, if that was even possible.

Yep - Democrats buy votes for themselves by bankrupting the country.
Next time you hear some dems screaming about making Americans work at jobs until they drop dead at 80 - remember who it's for - it's for the benefit of illegals - and Liberals Elites's job security... Your tax dollars used to turn illegals into reliable hot voters for elite democrats. (Oh - and liberal elites can pay their gardeners $8 an hour - knowing taxpayers are picking up their free medical...)
