Why Trump Doesn’t Want to over Burden the Welfare System Will Make You Proud
Trump was interviewed by Breitbart where he explained how he felt about immigration. He focused on a stat that almost 63% of migrants with kids go on welfare.
“I don’t want to have anyone coming in that’s on welfare,” Trump told Breitbart News in the more-than-40-minute interview in the Oval Office on Monday afternoon. “We have a problem, because we have politicians that are not strong, or they have bad intentions, or they want to get votes, because they think if they come in they’re going to vote Democrat, you know, for the most part.”
“They’ll take anybody into this country and we’re not allowing it, but because of the success of the country economically, some people say—I blame myself, but that’s a good blame not a bad blame—but because of the country’s success and you need workers here,” Trump said. “You do need workers. You have homes in Houston, and they can’t get people to build the homes—and lots of other places. But because of what’s happened, and because of the people coming up, they want them to come in and they don’t care how they come in.”
“We owe a lot of money. We’re taking care of everybody in the world’s military. But now as you know I got over $100 billion from NATO countries,” Trump said in the interview. “But that’s not enough, that’s not enough, we’re paying for massive portions of NATO.”
Trump’s comments came in response to questions citing a report by the Center for Immigration Studies that said “63 percent of households headed by a non-citizen reported that they used at least one welfare program” in 2014. However, some critics have challenged the numbers. The think tank describes itself as an “independent, non-partisan, non-profit, research organization” and has the slogan “low-immigration, pro-immigrant.”
The president is right we should not be inviting people into this country that can’t take care of themselves. That’s just a bigger burden on tax paying Americans.
