Beginning July 1, the State of Utah is cracking down on welfare fraud by reviewing the cases of illegal aliens who are receiving public assistance in the form of food stamps. Under the state’s new policy, food stamps were cut off to some 2,200 families of illegal aliens, and thousands more have had their benefits reduced.
The measure is the result of the state’s new policy to fully count the income earned by all members of a household when determining eligibility for food stamps. In the past, only a portion of illegal aliens’ income was included in the food stamp calculation, due to limitations of the state’s computer system. In some cases, a family with several illegal aliens members, who did not report their income, qualified for food stamps, although a family of native Utah citizens, making and reporting the same amount of money, might not.
The result is that families with illegal aliens are showing up at food banks asking for handouts. “But, of course, I have to feed my family,” said a mother of five who is an illegal alien, who works as a housekeeper at a nursing home and recently lost $300 worth of food stamps a month, in an article in the Salt Lake Tribune.
Some of the illegals who have lost benefits, or had them cut back, are questioning whether Americans are being given preference over them.
Preference? What preference? Talk about cojones! These people are criminals, they are breaking the law just by being here, and they have the audacity to complain because American citizens may be getting preference over them! And yet we have people and legislators who still don’t believe that these freeloaders are draining our economy and our resources dry!
If that illegal alien mother doesn’t like the changes, here’s an idea. Take your kids and go back where you belong. I bet there’s an American mother who will be more than happy to take that housekeeping job! I bet there is an American citizen who could use that $300 a month you have been getting, that you have no right to.
Okay, let’s do some real basic math here. This is one family of leeches who were getting $300 a month in benefits, and Utah has cut off 2,200 illegal families. If we were to assume that each family was getting the same amount (and we have no idea how many were getting that much, or more), that comes to $660,000 a month that was being given to people who don’t even belong here.
But wait, there’s more! One newspaper report said as many as another 6,000 to 8,000 families of illegal aliens in Utah will now get reduced benefits. Just for the heck of it, let’s split the difference and call it 7,000 families, and we’ll just say they will all get just $100 less every month. That’s another $700,000 a month saved, if my calculator is working right. That’s over $1.3 million a month in just one state! A state that doesn’t have nearly the population of illegal aliens as Florida, Arizona, Texas, or California. Do you get an idea now of how many billions of your tax dollars these people are costing us every year?
The administration says it would cost millions of dollars to deport all of the illegal aliens in this country. No problem, I just found you $1.3 million in Utah alone that you can put to that effort. Multiply that by 50 states, and I think we can get the job done.
But we won’t, of course. Because unlike the maggots who are feeding off of all of us, and who then complain that our own citizens are getting preferential treatment, the people we have elected to office don’t have the cojones to do what needs to be done!
