Removing the Reasons

From the Daily Wire:

Ille­gal immi­grants are opt­ing out of gov­ern­ment wel­fare pro­grams out of fear of Trump Admin­is­tra­tion crack­downs com­ing done the pike, reported POLITICO on Monday.

Due to a pro­posed Trump Admin­is­tra­tion rule to deny legal sta­tus to ille­gals on wel­fare, both legal and ille­gal immi­grants have been inun­dat­ing health care providers with calls demand­ing they be dropped from fed­eral assis­tance pro­grams like WIC. “Agen­cies in at least 18 states say they’ve seen drops of up to 20 per­cent in enroll­ment, and they attribute the change largely to fears about the immi­gra­tion pol­icy,” says the report. (…)

There were some 7.4 mil­lion women and chil­dren enrolled in WIC when Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump first took office; that num­ber declined to roughly 6.8 mil­lion in May. The drop-​off in WIC enroll­ment is also being attrib­uted to a bol­stered econ­omy and a decline in immi­grant birth rates.

Vol­un­tary removal from these types of gov­ern­ment pro­grams sug­gests that the for­mer recip­i­ents already had addi­tional and alter­na­tive resources.

That fur­ther shows that there will always be a seg­ment of peo­ple who will take advan­tage of any sys­tem if the sys­tem allows it. Here in Cal­i­for­nia, a major­ity of vot­ers agreed that ille­gal aliens should not have access to gov­ern­ment ser­vices, but one of the courts nul­li­fied this out­come. In hind­sight, that nul­li­fi­ca­tion was the begin­ning of California’s descent into Left­ist Utopia that presents itself before us.

Some have sug­gested that the sav­ings result­ing from the vol­un­tary removal might also help fund the build­ing of the south­ern bor­der wall — funded by Mex­ico, or, at least, by Mexicans.

Another promise in process of being kept?

From the Daily Wire:

Illegal immigrants are opting out of government welfare programs out of fear of Trump Administration crackdowns coming done the pike, reported POLITICO on Monday.

Due to a proposed Trump Administration rule to deny legal status to illegals on welfare, both legal and illegal immigrants have been inundating health care providers with calls demanding they be dropped from federal assistance programs like WIC. “Agencies in at least 18 states say they’ve seen drops of up to 20 percent in enrollment, and they attribute the change largely to fears about the immigration policy,” says the report. (…)

There were some 7.4 million women and children enrolled in WIC when President Donald Trump first took office; that number declined to roughly 6.8 million in May. The drop-off in WIC enrollment is also being attributed to a bolstered economy and a decline in immigrant birth rates.

Voluntary removal from these types of government programs suggests that the former recipients already had additional and alternative resources.

That further shows that there will always be a segment of people who will take advantage of any system if the system allows it. Here in California, a majority of voters agreed that illegal aliens should not have access to government services, but one of the courts nullified this outcome. In hindsight, that nullification was the beginning of California’s descent into Leftist Utopia that presents itself before us.

Some have suggested that the savings resulting from the voluntary removal might also help fund the building of the southern border wall — funded by Mexico, or, at least, by Mexicans.
