Middle Eastern Immigrants are Welfare Barnacles
The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities. – Theodore Roosevelt, the Knights of Columbus, 1915
Civilizations die from suicide, not by murder. – Arnold Toynbee
No society has a boundless capacity to accept newcomers, especially when many are poor and unskilled. – Robert Samuelson, economist and Newsweek columnist, 2005
It’s just obvious you can’t have free immigration and a welfare state. – Milton Friedman
Barack Hussein Obama and the United Nations has determined that the United States of America needs to accept tens of thousands of Syrian refugees. Obama announced that he has decided that the U.S. will accept 85,000 Syrian refugees next fiscal year and 100,000 in FY 2017. Obama continues to fundamentally transform America into a third world hell hole populated by welfare sponges and Islamic terrorists.
What do you suppose America can expect from the Syrian refugees? America can expect more than just terrorism. The 185,000 refugees will be welfare sponges who will be able to enjoy a life free from work and financial hardships courtesy of American taxpayers. You can add the Syrian refugees to the refugees from Central America that Obama and his army of bureaucrats resettled in your city or town. The masterminds never resettle immigrants in Washington, D.C. or their neighborhoods. They never come into contact with the “legal” and illegal immigrants they foist upon your city or town.
What do you do when the U.S. economy is a disaster? What do you do when the labor force participation rate is the lowest it has been since 1977? Obviously, you take on hundreds of thousands of refugees who will demand and subsequently receive taxpayer giveaways.

The chart above is part of a report by the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHS) that was presented to the Senate subcommittee on immigration. The ORR numbers are based on refugees from the “Middle East” defined as specifically being from Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, and Yemen. The statistics cover the time period from FY 2008 to FY 2013, during which the Obama administration admitted 115,617 refugees from the Middle East and granted asylum to another 10,026. The report also covers the 308,805 individuals the Department of Homeland Security granted permanent residency to during the time period.
The ORR’s report clearly shows that Middle Eastern refugees are welfare sponges. American taxpayers provide Middle Eastern refugees with food stamps, health care, cash, disability, and public housing. According to the ORR, “A refugee household enrolled in one welfare program is likely enrolled in multiple welfare programs.” An astronomical 91.4 percent of Middle Eastern refugees receive food stamps from American taxpayers.
To the critics who think the U.S. doesn’t accept enough of the world’s refugees, here is a sobering fact that refutes the critics’ claims and is more proof that America’s best days are behind it: According to the Migration Policy Institute (Marxist organization), the U.S. has taken in “about 20 percent of the world’s international migrants, even as it represents less than 5 percent of the global population,” and 1 in 4 U.S. residents is now either an immigrant or born to immigrant parents. You don’t have to be that smart to conclude that there are too many unskilled, uneducated, poor immigrants from third world countries entering the U.S., and there are not enough taxpayers to support the immigrants. The never-ending tsunami of third world illegal and legal immigrants will bankrupt America and turn it into a third world country.
The U.S. Census Bureau projects that another 14 million immigrants will arrive in the U.S. between now and 2025. The immigrants will continue to come from Mexico, Guatemala, Ecuador, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Panama, Honduras, Belize, Nicaragua, and millions of Muslims will be accepted from the DHS’s list of top ten countries for refugees and asylum seekers. The DHS has decided the best way to protect Americans from Muslim terrorists is to resettle Muslims from Iraq, Somalia, Iran, Congo, Sudan, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Burma, and Bhutan, and confiscate hard-earned money from American taxpayers to redistribute to refugees and asylum seekers.
