New Report Reveals Huge Spike in Immigrants Opting Out of Welfare. Here’s Why.



President Trump is apparently considering a new immigration policy that would make it more difficult for immigrants to become citizens or gain legal status if they are receiving government welfare benefits, a measure that is guaranteed to send the left into fits of saliva flecking rage.

As a result of the report concerning this policy getting out, there’s been a huge spike in immigrants opting to do without government assistance programs, fearing that accepting the aid could bar them from earning citizenship or a green card in the future.

According to Politico, health care providers nationwide have reported receiving calls from panicked immigrants, both legal and illegal, demanding they be dropped from government assistance programs like WIC, a federally funded program that assists low-income women with providing health care and food for their young children.

Agencies in at least 18 states told Politico they have seen WIC enrollment drop up to 20 percent, a decrease they attribute to the Trump administration’s impending rule change.

Indeed, since Trump assumed office, the number of woman and children enrolled and WIC has seen a significant drop. In January 2017, 7.4 million women and children were enrolled in the program. As of May 2018, 6.8 million were enrolled.

And while it’s not certain the Trump administration’s rule change is to blame — it was first reported in early August — health care providers told Politico they saw a significant spike in enrollees asking to be scrubbed from the program around the same time news broke about the Trump administration’s plan.

While there are ethical concerns over the Trump administration’s plan, U.S. immigration law, under a concept known as “public charge,” permits the government to deny immigrants entry to the U.S. or a green card if the individuals seeking entry or lawful permanent status are reasonably believed to become primarily dependent on government resources to survive.

The bottom line is, we simply can’t keep providing free stuff to folks, citizens and non-citizens alike, because the reality is, none of it is free. It is all paid for by tax dollars and the more heavily a society is taxed and the wealth “redistributed” the poorer it becomes.

It’s not sustainable to provide welfare for illegals, thus it’s not unreasonable to take measures like these to ensure we protect our limited resources.

Guess we’ll just have to wait and see how it goes and whether or not Trump is serious about taking these kind of steps.

Former Acting DNI Says Trump Told Him ‘Multiple Times’ He’s Running for POTUS 2024

It’ll be here before you know it.

The first openly gay cabinet member got little to no recognition from the mainstream media because he worked for a Republican administration. After all, the MSM works as the public relations branch of the Democrat Party. What Richard Grenell said on Monday, though, will have every liberal in the media listening intently. #Trump2024 WATCH: President Tucker Carlson? How does that sound to you? Could it one day happen, perhaps as soon as 2024? Only time will tell, obviously, but the rumor is abuzzin’. From Politico: Tucker Carlson’s audience is booming — and so is chatter that the popular Fox News host will parlay his TV perch into a run for president in 2024. Republican strategists, conservative commentators, and former Trump campaign and administration officials are buzzing about Carlson as the next-generation leader of Donald Trump’s movement — with many believing he would be an immediate frontrunner in a Republican primary. CONTINUED: “He’s a talented communicator with a massive platform. I think if he runs he’d be formidable,” said Luke Thompson, a Republican strategist who worked for Jeb Bush’s super PAC in 2016. While practically every Republican eyeing a 2024 presidential run is professing loyalty to Trump the person, Carlson has become perhaps the highest-profile proponent of “Trumpism” — a blend of anti-immigrant nationalism, economic populism and America First isolationism that he articulates unapologetically and with some snark. At the same time, he’s shown a rare willingness among Republicans to bluntly criticize Trump when he believes the president is straying from that ideology. VIDEO:

Chief Justice Roberts Will Not Preside Over Impeachment Trial, Will Be Top Dem Leader Instead

They want revenge, vengeance.

John Salvatore



“Wanna know how I got these scars?” That was the question Heath Ledger’s Joker asked a partygoer in 2008’s The Dark Knight. Said partygoer is the man who will preside over the second impeachment trial of President Donald Trump. Not a joke. Just search the internet for SENATOR LEAHY BATMAN. From The Hill: Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts will not preside over former President Trump’s Senate impeachment trial, which is scheduled to begin in earnest on Feb. 8. Instead, Senate President Pro Tempore Patrick Leahy (Vt.), the most senior member of the Senate Democratic Conference, will preside over the trial. CONTINUED: Leahy on Monday confirmed he would wield the gavel and promised to administer “impartial justice.” “The president pro tempore has historically presided over Senate impeachment trials of non-presidents. When presiding over an impeachment trial, the president pro tempore takes an additional special oath to do impartial justice according to the Constitution and its laws. It is an oath that I take extraordinarily seriously,” he said in a statement. How incredibly moronic is it to impeach a president after he has left office? What a waste of time. Democrats have proven, time and again, that they are not out for “unity.” Not at all. They want revenge; vengeance; blood. Okay, I did the search for you. Watch below…
