He can take the refugees back to his mansion and employ them as gerbil trainers.

If you get bored reading facts that serve to refute your obvious bias, just scroll down the linked page to the header "The Greatest Number Of Recipients Are White"

I take it that statistics are not your strong suit, then?

Non-Hispanic whites are the majority race in the United States, so it's not especially shocking that that they would also be the majority of welfare recipients. But I think it's instructive to look at the percentage of each race that receives welfare.

Data on Medicaid usage comes from the link quoted above.

Data on race comes from here:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Demogr...ed_States#Race

Percentage of the population receiving Medicaid:

Non-Hispanic white:
24,934,100 / 197,277,789 = 12.6%

Black:
11,182,400 / 39.445,495 = 28.3%

Hispanic:
18,063,300 / 56,510,571 = 32.0%

Thus, my conclusion is that non-Hispanic whites use Medicaid at rates far lower than do blacks and Hispanics. Is this the point you wished to make?

If you're talking about TANF (which is what the article you linked to refers to as "welfare"), you are wrong. It might have been true 25 years ago, but it is not true now.

These people are economic migrants and not refugees and Italy is sick to death of migrants which is why the country is becoming ever more right-wing. Sadly Richard Gere doesn't understand this.

Right-wing? Following the law is considered right-wing, ok. You got a point there.

The legislator make the laws, the more right wing Italy becomes in terms of the Government (the Executive) and Parliament (the Legislator) the more right wing laws the Government will make and Parliament will pass, and the Courts (the Judiciary) will have to adhere to these laws. That's how it works. Government and Parliaments have the power to make and pass new legislation and to change the laws.

Yet they aren't. They aren't even a plurality.
