Not a thing. I suspect many of the pro-illegal crowd or open boarder types are people who have achieved very little in their lives, they haven't worked, saved and built. If they had they would realize that our resources are finite and that they should be used for our own first and always.

Then you should be happy that the majority of those collecting your tax dollars as welfare payments are white and home grown.

Congratulations; your "first and foremost" are the accused "leeches".

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"

Let President Trump put the questions he wants on the US Census and we'll see.

I rather see American born citizens collecting US government benefits rather than illegals collecting US government benefits.......any day of the week.

Who cares what Gere says. He's not God, he's one guy. Keep Italy, Italian. Liberals want to preserve all the animal diversity on this planet but seem blissfully unconcerned about human diversity. To me it would be a great loss if my kids could not go to Italy to see Italians but instead see something resembling the USA demographics.

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

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.
