The Obama administration has succeeded in their goal of resettling 10,000 refugees, and Hillary Clinton would like to see what figure spike over 500%. What the Obama administration and other liberals don’t want to discuss (aside from the possibility of terrorists slipping through the cracks) is the enormous fiscal cost of resettling refugees. We all know that liberals don’t care about the national debt, but we as the people paying it off do.
According to the Center for Immigration Studies, on average, each Middle Eastern refugee resettled in the United States costs an estimated $64,370 in the first five years, or $257,481 per household. By comparison, the cost of resettling a refugee in the Middle East is just over $1,000. In other words, we could resettle over 10 times as many refugees if we paid to resettle them abroad. So why resettle them in the U.S.? So we can virtue signal to the rest of the world about how tolerant and welcoming we are without any concern for the consequences.
Nearly ALL resettled refugees use public assistance.
This story in particular isn’t about a Muslim refugee however, it’s about a Muslim millionaire who still saw it appropriate to bilk the system. The man in question comes from a wealthy Iranian family and called himself “Prince Ali Pascal Mahvi.” He’s lived in Ohio in a million plus dollar home that comes with a pool, tennis courts….. and food stamps.
For him though, the gig is up. As Mad World News just reported:
For two years, the family was handed about $300 a month in government food stamps. They also wanted help to pay their gas and electric bills. In addition, Mahvi told Geauga County that his family needed Medicaid, and he got that too.
However, his poverty was all a ruse. While getting welfare, prosecutors say Mahvi had millions in the bank. So, law enforcement was called to raid his million dollar home, and Mahvi didn’t like that nasty surprise from the cops one bit.
They confiscated all his computers and electronics, rifling through his house and seizing everything that could lead the prosecutor to indict him on welfare fraud and any other crimes that he may be committing.
To welfare officials, the Mahvis painted a picture of financial ruin and desperation inside their expansive home. Cops were pissed off when they learned that the family has at least 14 bank accounts with a combined value of more than $4.2 million. Those funds were not disclosed when Mahvi applied for benefits, detectives said.
When you have over four million dollars, how is it even worth your time to apply for welfare? It seems bizarre to risk millions to gain hundreds, but the gig is up now.
