We all know that our southern border is wide open, and that anyone from anywhere can just walk across the “border”, and into the U.S. – this is a huge problem from a security and economic standpoint but one that Obama nor our “representatives” in congress want to fix, because it’s being done by design – it’s the “Cloward-Piven Strategy” at work.
Unfortunately our wide-open southern border doesn’t seen to be enough for the Obama regime, because even after the recent deadly attacks in France that killed over 120 people, the traitor in chief, is still insistent on shipping in 100,000 “refugees” from Syria per year into the U.S..
It’s obvious that he does not care about the safety of American citizens nor do they come first in his agenda no matter the issue, because even-though he has been told by officials that there is no way to tell a refugee from a terrorist who is arriving into the U.S. from that area, he is still insistent on shipping them into the U.S. by the hundreds of thousands.
But lets forget about ISIS, terrorism or any inherent dangers that come along with shipments of refugees from that area into the U.S., let’s imagine that none are terrorists who want to kill and murder Americans. Let’s imagine that they are all full of love and peace and that there is a 100% guarantee that none will ever physically harm an American citizen.
Sounds good right… not realistic, I know, but it sure sounds nice and ties into my points below…
But even if that were all true, the question remains – what are they going to do when they get here? Are they going to get a job, work and pay taxes?
No not according to the Center for Immigration Studies, who reports that for their first five years in the United States, each Middle Eastern refugee costs taxpayers $64,370 to resettle them here.
That’s just the first five years, I could not find any credible data on cost per refugee after the first five years but did you know that refugees aren’t expected to be self-sufficient because they are admitted for humanitarian reasons…
So for each 100,000 Middle Eastern refugees we take in it costs the American tax payer approximately 6,437,000,000 dollars for the first five years – I guess that we will just add that to the already massive national debt of nearly 19 trillion.
We are broke. Doesn’t anyone get that… we are broke… our economy is collapsing… we are a crumbling empire.
As explained in a recent article published at Freebeacon.com:
Because refugees are eligible for all welfare programs they have very high rates of participation in government assistance programs.
The report finds that 91.4 percent of refugees receive food stamps, 73.1 percent are on Medicaid, 68 percent receive cash assistance, 36.7 percent receive Temporary Assistance to Needy Families, 32.1 percent receive Supplemental Security Income, and 18.7 percent live in public housing.
“Refugees have the most generous access to welfare programs of any population in the country,” explains the analysis. “Very heavy use of welfare programs by Middle Eastern refugees, and the fact that they have only 10.5 years of education on average, makes it likely that it will be many years, if ever, before this population will cease to be a net fiscal drain on public coffers—using more in public services than they pay in taxes.”
Our economy is so bad that Mexicans are leaving the U.S. and going back to Mexico to find work – according to The Guardian…
More Mexicans are leaving the United States than are migrating into the country, marking a reversal of one of the most significant immigration trends in US history.
They also reported:
In another first, the border patrol arrested more non-Mexicans than Mexicans in the 2014 fiscal year…
So how are we going to pay for and keep paying year after year for the hundreds of thousands of refugees that the Obama regime insists on bringing into the U.S.?
Do they plan on making dramatic cuts to spending in other areas such as the military and infrastructure? Raising taxes even up to 90% as Bernie Sanders has said that he wants? Or just doing as they always do and add the cost to the national debt and worry about it later?
I would love for us to be able to help those refugees, but the truth is we are broke and our economy is in shambles and taking in hundreds of thousands of new dependents isn’t in any way going to be a positive for the United States, but instead a negative drain on or economy and resources.
It sickens me that we can’t help these people without hurting ourselves economically or increasing our risk of being murdered by a few “bad apples” that slip through Obama’s “vetting process” no matter how secure and full-proof that he would have us believe that the process is…
Didn’t he also say ISIS was contained just a few hours before the deadly attack in France… I’ve came to realize that if his mouth is moving that he is probably lying…
Please pray for the Syrian refugees and that we can help them without it being a drain on our already collapsing economy or us risking being blown to bits by terrorists that slip through the process…
