FAIR: Refugee resettlement costs taxpayers billions; welfare biggest chunk

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 7, 2018

I’m happy to see that more national immigration control groups are addressing the costly UN/US Refugee Admissions Program!  Where are you Heritage?

Graphic (using ORR data) is not FAIR’s or Breitbart’s, but is from a 2015 report by then Senator Sessions Subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest.

 

John Binder writing at Breitbart tells the latest story here:

Over a five year period, American taxpayers are billed more than $8 billion for the resettlement of thousands of foreign refugees every year, a new study finds.

In research conducted by the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), analysts concluded that annual refugee resettlement costs American taxpayers about $1.8 billion a year, and over five years, about $8.8 billion.

FAIR’s research found that of the $1.8 billion annual cost of resettling refugees in the U.S., about $867 million was spent on welfare.

And, go here, for FAIR’s report.

Reminder: Over the next few days I will be traveling, so don’t look for new posts here at RRW (after today) until early next week.  I probably won’t be able to post comments either.

  1. 1. Please note that SSI listed in your chart is indeed a welfare program.
    2. General Income Tax revenues pay for SSI – NOT SOCIAL SECURITY (SSA) TAXES
    3. SSI payments ARE NOT SSA BENEFITS.
    4. SSA was simply tasked with administering SSI on a national basis starting in 1974
    so payments & rules would be standardized nationwide.
    5. Before 1974, each state administered their own SSI program & payment amounts & rules
    varied from state to state, causing people to move to the states paying the higher SSI amounts.
    So Congress nationalized SSI & picked SSA as the most logical agency to administer it nationally.
