Turns out it’s neither cheap nor labor:

“In 2010, 36 percent of immigrant-headed households used at least one major welfare program (primarily food assistance and Medicaid) compared to 23 percent of native households,” summarizes the document which was published by the Center for Immigration Studies and examines a wide variety of topics relating to immigration. Click HERE to read the full report.

The document breaks down the immigrant families by country of origin and gives specific types of welfare and percentages of the families that used it in 2010. An average fewer than 23 percent of native households use some type of “welfare” which is specifically defined in the study. 36 percent of households headed by immigrants use some type of welfare. Families headed by immigrants from specific countries or areas of the world range from just over 6 percent for those immigrants from Great Britain to more than 57 percent of those from Mexico using some type of welfare. [Emphasis added.]

From now on, I’m going to call bullshit on people who tell me how hard-working and thrifty Mexicans are.  If that’s the case, why are 57% of Mexican immigrants receiving money from the federal government of the United States?  Why are the taxes of American citizens being used to pay for people from shithole third world countries?

Also, I’m going to call bullshit on dumbass economists who insist that what we need is more cheap labor from Mexico.  Hint:  labor isn’t actually cheap if it’s federally subsidized.  The savings of cheap Mexican labor are apparently illusory.  What cheap labor really amounts to is federal subsidy scam.

What we’re seeing now is nothing more than a government that is forcing its citizens to pay for their cultural, economic, and social suicide.
