Ask your state legislators to prevent illegal aliens from getting public benefits: yay or nay?
I got an email today from NumbersUSA stating [go to their website if you want to send a free fax]:
Ask your State Legislators to Prevent Illegal Aliens from Getting Public Benefits
This new fax has been posted in your Action Buffet based on your answers to the Interest Survey.
Each year, states and localities spend about $84 billion on services for illegal aliens. Clearly, this is an unwise way to spend taxpayer dollars when so many states are having trouble making ends meet. However, 11 states already require the use of the federal SAVE system to verify benefit applicants to ensure they are in this country legally, and therefore entitled to receive public assistance.
Please send your state legislators a fax and encourage them to pass legislation that would require benefit applicants to be run through the SAVE system so that illegal aliens cannot receive services meant for American citizens. Giving welfare benefits to illegal aliens only encourages these individuals to stay in the United States and even encourages more people to come here illegally.
