We cannot stress it enough, the importance of showing how big of a problem the welfare fraud really is.
The latest numbers we got from LA prove precisely this.
If you ask any liberal, you would be under the assumption that welfare fraud in this country, barely even exists.
The idea, that the greatest recipients of benefits are Bible Belt Conservatives, or American servicemen, would probably be implanted in your brain.
But keeping people in denial is not an easy thing to do.
It’s difficult to deny cold, hard numbers. And these numbers say that, LA paid out well over a $ billion to people who weren’t supposed to receive benefits. The major reason, among other things, is because the majority of them are illegal immigrants.
However, there is still a bright side to this.
According to Fox News “llegal immigrant families received nearly $1.3 billion in Los Angeles County welfare money during 2015 and 2016, nearly one-quarter of the amount spent on the county’s entire needy population.”
Fox News say that a Heritage Foundation senior fellow, Robert Rector, who is an expert on poverty and illegal emigration says this is merely a drop in the ocean. According to him the costs of education, police and fire, medical, and subsidized housing can total $24,000 per year in government spending per family, a number much bigger than the number which has been paid in taxes.
To be honest, the real issue is not exactly the dangers we invite by letting people break US law.
The more important thing is whether or not the people we are letting into our country, are contributing to our society or not.
As much as illegal immigration can be harmful there still is a bright spot in all the darkness. And who put that bright spot? Why, of course, Trump.
When you think about it building a wall costs money, and deportations are procedures which also require financial expense.
So, what better resolution than, to discourage illegal immigrants from entering the country illegally in the first place?
This is precisely what Trump is doing. Namely he tried to make more strict immigration policies, though may reduce population seeking welfare payments in recent months.
The statistics show that the LA County is expected to to drop to $200 million less this year compared to 2016, and several thousand fewer families are collecting benefits.
And there it is. Trump has found a way to get the country on solid financial grounds even without a wall.
