One of Trump’s best initiatives is already starting to save American taxpayers millions.
Do you have any idea much illegal immigrants cost the American taxpayer?
The numbers are just astounding:
Thanks to the U.S. accepting over 1.5 million foreign nationals every year (most of which are low-skilled), the average hard-working American has to fork over $6,234 in federal welfare.
They use 33 percent more welfare money and 44 percent more Medicaid money than the average American as well.
These stats are absolutely unacceptable and will bankrupt us if we don’t act fast.
Enter President Donald Trump.
For months, Trump has been preparing a “public charge law,” specifically designed to reduce the burden of illegal aliens, dumped on us from primarily poor countries.
As part of that plan, migrants living in this country will be less likely to be able to get permanent residency if they’ve used welfare dollars, including Obamacare, food stamps, and/or public housing.
And it’s working even before it’s officially complete:
“Illegal and legal immigrants are unenrolling from receiving welfare benefits following reports that President Trump’s administration will soon bar foreign nationals from permanently resettling in the United States if they are documented as being a burden on American taxpayers.’
The Politico report notes that welfare agencies ‘in at least 18 states say they’ve seen drops of up to 20 percent in enrollment.‘
Agency officials say the reason for the steep drop in welfare enrollment is due to the news that Trump’s administration will soon enforce the public charge law.”
All Americans should agree that this is very good news.

The most recent poll concerning Trump’s battle against immigrants draining welfare dollars finds that 62 percent agree with the initiative.
…that means 38 percent of people in this country apparently can’t do simple math, but even so, the majority still has common sense.
We have to stop running the world’s “largest anti-poverty program,” as dubbed by Harvard economist George Borjas:
“Since 1965, we have admitted a lot of low-skilled immigrants, and one way to view that policy is that we were running basically the largest anti-poverty program in the world.
That is actually not a bad thing at all.
Except someone is going to have to pay the cost for that.”
Yes, us. Me, you, all of us have to pay for it. And we’re going broke!
Isn’t it nice to finally have a leader who cares about that, though? A leader who will take the necessary steps to plug the massive leak?
