A new report is claiming the majority of foreign nationals in the U.S. are receiving welfare benefits.
According to the data from Census Bureau Monday, 63-percent of “non-citizen” households are receiving cash, food, medical and housing assistance from the U.S. government.
This compared to only 35-percent of American households on welfare.
Meanwhile, Mexican officials are saying only a quarter of caravan migrants have applied for jobs in Mexico, while others still seek admission into the U.S.
“Today, we’ve processed more than 200, so it’s more than 2,000 people in total,” explained Nayla Rangel of Mexico’s National Employment Service. “Companies are ready to hire — when they (migrants) have their employment number from immigration they can be hired formally when they receive an offer of employment.”
A separate report from the Center for Immigration Studies is claiming the majority of foreign citizens are seeking welfare benefits rather than jobs in the U.S.
