Hey Richie, what about those so-called conservative states and their cities?
Or is this head in the sand stuff?
Study: 70% of Texas illegal immigrant families receive welfare
In Texas, 54 percent of legal immigrants and 70 percent of illegal immigrants receive welfare assistance, with illegal immigrants generally receiving benefits on behalf of their U.S.-born children
Overall, Texas tied with California and New York for the second highest immigrant welfare rates behind Arizona.
Texas showed 61 percent of households headed by an immigrant utilizing at least one program compared to the 42 percent of Texas natives on welfare.
This is partly due to the large share of immigrants with low levels of education and their resulting low incomes not their legal status or an unwillingness to work, Steve Camorata, Director of Research at CIS, said.
Last time I checked, there weren’t any conservative “Cities” in Texas. But, then again, I double checked and I didn’t see where the immigration question came into play in that article; its about run-away spending on City Budgets and pay packages to the city employees.
