Immigrants Use More Welfare

A report by the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) found that immigrant headed households use significantly more welfare than those of native-born Americans. It found that “In 2014, 63 percent of households headed by a non-citizen reported that they used at least one welfare program, compared [with] 35 percent of native-headed households.  .  .  .  Compared [with] native households, non-citizen households have much higher use of food programs (45 percent vs. 21 percent for natives) and Medicaid (50 percent vs. 23 percent for natives).
