While still mourning the loss of their prized “Obamaphones,” the crackdown on welfare continued today with President Trump issuing a big blow that thousands of freeloaders are furious about. In a single swipe of his pen, our leader killed a massive freebie that these leeches are certainly not ready to let go of just yet.
The new executive order comes on the coattails of the immigration orders for good reason as it pertains most specifically to the illegals who cross our borders and suck off of the system for life. After a copy of the draft order first leaked this month by the Washington Post, liberals began to panic and now their nightmare just became a reality — much to the approval of hardworking Americans.
According to Conservative Tribune, immigrants trying to enter the U.S. will be vetted ahead of time for their potential use and intentions with government aid, without necessarily realizing it. The order explains that all will be screened to determine their “need for certain types of public aid” and the same practice will be applied to those already here who Barack Obama so freely let in. If they are found to be using the system in any inappropriate way, they will be deported. This decision was made based on a sneaky thing illegals have been doing that President Trump uncovered and wasn’t too happy about it.
Many immigrants come into the United States to meet up and live with them on the promise that the family would financially support them once they get here. That’s all said to get them through the process, then once they are here, they simply apply for government assistance and all the programs the can and get them. Since many cohabitate together, the pool of welfare funds in one small house can be extensive. Trump’s order would hold these families accountable who promised to help them financially but benefitted instead.
Although a specific savings to come from this plan is hard to determine, it’s estimated to be about “$100 billion.” Considering how many immigrants have been let into this country under Obama, that’s probably a conservative number even with as alarming as the figure is.
The big problem with the welfare system is that it becomes a way of life for too many people, many of whom aren’t even citizens and will never pay back into the program. It wasn’t intended to be a lifestyle, it was only ever supposed to be a leg up through a hard time. Trump is cutting out the abuse and keeping it for those who need it and don’t take advantage of it. Instead of handing out assistance to immigrants who cross our borders, the should be provided job opportunities as a means to enter. This alone could deter a lot of immigrants from coming into the country.
