“Refugee Kids Get More Than American Kids,” By Daniel Greenfield, FPM, April 27, 2016

Who do those American kids think they are anyway? We all know that the first priority of our nation is not our children, but other people’s children.

Children born to refugees receive more government benefits like food stamps, cash assistance, and Supplemental Security Income than native-born children, according to a report from the Migration Policy Institute.

“Children of refugees generally have better access to health coverage and public benefits than children of other immigrants,” the report stated. “Refugees qualify for cash welfare, food stamps, and Medicaid or other public health insurance immediately upon arrival, and are often linked to these benefits by resettlement agencies.”

“Because of favorable eligibility rules, children of refugees participate in public benefit programs at higher rates than do other children of immigrants, even though children of refugees have a lower poverty rate,” the report stated.

“Children of refugees fare better than children of other immigrants on almost all indicators—perhaps because refugee parents benefit from U.S.-government resettlement services while nonrefugee parents include unauthorized immigrants who face multiple barriers to socioeconomic integration and receipt of public benefits and services,” the report stated. “Refugees’ children also fare as well or almost as well as children with U.S.- born parents on several indicators.”
