Asked if the U.S. government “should provide temporary financial help for undocumented immigrants who can’t work because of layoffs or illness” 58% of Democrats supported the idea compared to 68% of Republicans rejecting the idea.
Breitbart reports almost three-in-five Democrats want taxpayers to bail out the poverty-stricken communities of illegal immigrants whom they welcomed into the United States, according to an April poll by Ipsos.
The April poll asked “if the government should provide temporary financial help for undocumented immigrants who can’t work because of layoffs or illness: 40% in favor, 42% against, 18% ‘didn’t know.’” said a report by USA Today, which commissioned the April 9-10 poll of 1,005 adults.
“Sixty-eight percent of Republicans oppose the idea; 58% of Democrats support it,” USA Today reported.
“It is important for us to focus on getting American workers into American jobs and making sure that our own people are healthy and able to survive,” responded Rosemary Jenks, the policy director at Numbers USA.
“The fact that the left and the business community – the big business folks – decided they needed to encourage illegal immigration does not mean that American taxpayers now have to bail them out,” she added. “That’s a problem with illegal immigration — every time you reward it, you get more of it, and that’s exactly what the progressives want, and so does big business.”
Nationwide, the flood of at least eight million illegal migrants has forced down blue-collar wages, nudged up rents in blue-collar neighborhoods, and crowded the K-12 classrooms needed by American children.
