How can government spending go down when a million legal immigrants arrive annually, 85% from the Third World, and most lacking the academic and linguistic abilities or the work skills of Americans?
These immigrants — and, with "immigration reform," 11 million to 12 million illegals, as well — will be eligible for welfare, earned income tax credits, food stamps, rent supplements, Medicaid, Head Start, free schooling K-12 with two or three free meals a day at school, Pell Grants and student loans at graduation, job training and unemployment checks for 99 weeks. Under Bush and Barack Obama both, these programs have exploded. And with 40% of all babies now born to single mothers in America, does anyone really believe that these programs will shrink?
