President Donald Trump just caused a complete an utter meltdown of the Democrats and their cohorts as he announced a “new rule” on immigration which will go into effect immediately. It will save American taxpayers billions as it targets all immigrants who are or who have used welfare. You’re going to love this.

President Trump is set to save American taxpayers billions of dollars as his administration announces a new rule on Monday that will essentially ban welfare-dependent immigrants from permanently resettling in the United States.

A new regulation set to be published by the Trump administration will ensure that immigrants would be less likely to secure a permanent residency in the U.S. if they have used any forms of welfare in the past, including using subsidized healthcare services, food stamps, and public housing.

“The regulation will be a boon for American taxpayers in the form of an annual $57.4 billion tax cut — the amount taxpayers spend every year on paying for the welfare, crime, and schooling costs of the country’s mass importation of 1.5 million new, mostly low-skilled legal immigrants,” Breitbart reports. 

The National Academies of Science released a report two years ago, noting that state and local American taxpayers are billed about $1,600 each year per immigrant to pay for their welfare, where immigrant households consume 33 percent more cash welfare than American citizen households.

A recent Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) study notes that about 63 percent of noncitizen households in the U.S. use at least one form of taxpayer-funded welfare, while only about 35 percent of native-born American households are on welfare. This means that noncitizen households use nearly twice as much welfare as native-born American households.

In California — with the largest noncitizen population in the country at almost 11 million or nearly 30 percent of the state’s total population — more than seven-in-ten, or 72 percent, of households headed by noncitizens are on at least one form of welfare. Compare that to the findings that only about seven-in-twenty, or 35 percent, of native-born households in California are on welfare.

Look, this isn’t a new concept, and it isn’t racist. 

Most countries who have healthy immigration maintain similar regulations. You must be able to provide for yourself or have family members who will officially be responsible for you until you do, to gain entry into the said country.

Yet, we have leftists in meltdown mode. 

Right away, a far-left website wrote an article titled, “Trump Gets More Racist With Move To Take Food Stamps And Housing Away From LEGAL Immigrants.” That’s right, immediately the leftist played the race card.

“Trump and his Administration just evil people along with McConnell and other Republicans who refuse to stand up to Trump and McConnell!” tweeted Sharon Caliendo.

Well, the majority of Americans are extremely grateful the president is taking this action. 

This is exactly why Americans elected @realDonaldTrump as @POTUS The American tax payers has been unnecessarily getting extorted of their hard earned $ for decades. It’s about time common sense & “doing what’s right’ prevails,” tweeted “Lil Rodney Dangerfield.”

“I can’t wait to hear all the progressive, liberal ass Democrats cry about this one. The only reason they cry is because these are their future Democrat voters. It all about the vote!!!” tweeted Gary McClain.

Twitter user “Tom” points out the stats about welfare and illegal immigrants, posting, “California – and similarly across the nation. 72% of households headed by non-citizens are on at least one form of welfare. Versus 35% of native-born households on welfare.”

“Currently, there is an estimated record high of 44.5 million foreign-born residents living in the U.S. This is nearly quadruple the immigrant population in 2000. The vast majority of those arriving in the country every year are low-skilled legal immigrants who compete against working and middle-class Americans for jobs,” Breitbart added.

The Democrats and their cohorts trick is to call us all racist event though we support legal immigration. We are happy to welcome all new immigrants who come here the right and lawful way and become contributing members of our great nation, just like the majority of Americans’ ancestors who had to go through Ellis Island.

Make no mistake. The Democrats are behind the caravans who have caused all the problems at the border. Leftist organizations help to bus and feed the caravans for part of the journey, and the Central Americans are lied to and told they will get into the U.S. quickly.

Thank God President Trump isn’t afraid to do the right thing and help Americans who are poor ensure that their welfare benefits aren’t exploited. It will save us billions and hopefully prove to all immigrants that America isn’t one big welfare state. In fact, everyone who wishes to live the American dream must pay their own way.
