President Trump gave an interview with Breitbart News on Monday night where he stated he does’t want to bring illegal immigrants that our dependent on welfare. This is great news because majority of Illegals survive on our welfare system when they arrive.
According to recent study from Center for Immigration Studies roughly 63% of non-citizen households end up on welfare.
Trumps stated to Breitbart News, “I don’t want to have anyone coming in that’s on welfare. 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.”
Trump noted that Democrats are excited to bring in dependent illegals, “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.”
Trump continued, “I don’t want people that need welfare. 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. But that’s not enough, that’s not enough, we’re paying for massive portions of NATO. We shouldn’t be paying for this. They should be paying their own way, and we can help them, but we shouldn’t be paying for—and by the way, here’s a beauty. We pay for their military defense and then they take advantage of us on trade in addition. It used to be in order to have the trade we take care of them—but they get us both ways.”
Trump concluded, “But I don’t like the idea of people coming in and going on welfare for 50 years, and that’s what they want to be able to do—and it’s no good.”
