Buttigieg Foolishly Claims Illegal Immigrants Are Good for Legal Residents

In the comically crowded field of Democratic presidential hopefuls looking to beat Donald J Trump in 2020, one candidate is definitely on the rise.

According to Fox News, South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg polled third behind Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders and former Vice President Joe Biden in the latest University of New Hampshire Granite State Poll.

While Buttigieg appears to be surging, he made an odd observation during a CNN town hall on April 22, 2019 that has undoubtedly left some speechless.

Mayor Pete, as he’s so lovingly referred to by his admirers, claimed illegal immigrants are “subsidizing” citizens and legal residents according to an op-ed written by Nate Madden for  TheBlaze.

The 2020 Democratic presidential contender’s reasoning for this bizarre statement was that illegal aliens pay taxes without receiving federal benefits. Referring to his city of South Bend, Indiana, Buttigieg remarked, “I would be delighted to have more people. We only have 100,000 because so many people left after the auto factories collapsed in the ’60s.

“We’ve got plenty of room for more residents and taxpayers who want to help fund the snowplowing and firefighters that I’ve got to have for 130,000 people’s worth of city, with only 100,000 people to pay for it.”

The openly gay 2020 Democratic presidential competitor went on to add, “And let us not forget that in many respects, from property taxes to sales taxes, undocumented immigrants are taxpayers, and the truth is, in many respects, because they are not eligible for a lot of benefits, they are subsidizing the rest of us, which is just one more reason we’ve got to get this sorted out.”

According to Madden, Buttigieg’s rosy talking point concerning illegal aliens has been making its way through liberal circles for a while.

But, is it really true? Are illegals actually paying sales, property, and payroll taxes while utilizing zero government services and getting no government benefits?

Madden noted that “Under federal immigration laws, even legal immigrants have various residency and work standards to meet before they can get federal benefits.

In fact, the Immigration and Nationality Act states that those seeking entry to the country or applying for green cards are ineligible if they are ‘likely at any time to become a public charge.’” So, apparently, the United States is supposed to turn away migrants who can’t fend for themselves once they arrive in the country.

Arguing how ignorant Buttigieg’s claims were, Madden said, “But if the U.S. were even moderately faithful in enforcing all its immigration laws to the letter, we wouldn’t have a full-blown border crisis on our hands.”

According to Eddie Scarry of the Washington Examiner, greater than 30,000 illegal aliens are currently residing in government-assisted houses.

Also, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals beneficiaries can receive federal government mortgages.

And, this isn’t all. Madden maintained that “Illegal immigrants with children born on U.S. soil are completely eligible for benefits. According to the Center for Immigration Studies, 31 percent of these families receive food stamps (now called SNAP benefits). CIS also found in 2018 that 63 percent of households headed by a non-citizen use at least one welfare program.”

In 2017, the Federation for American Immigration Reform, FAIR, reported that the total price tag of illegal immigration for the nation, at the local, state, and federal levels, amounted to an estimated $116 billion.

FAIR also reported that this represented a $3 billion increase from the 2013 amount of $113 billion. On its website, FAIR claimed, “Evidence shows that the tax payments made by illegal aliens fail to cover the costs of the many services they consume.”

The organization noted that a high percentage of illegal immigrants work in the underground economy. As a result, they often avoid paying any income tax. Unbelievably, FAIR contended that “Many illegal aliens actually receive a net cash profit through refundable tax credit programs.”

Based on the real facts, Buttigieg might want to rethink his outrageous claim that illegal aliens “subsidize” American citizens and legal residents. And, before the 2020 Democratic presidential candidate starts inviting illegal immigrants to flood his city, he may want to put more effort into helping the people already living in it.

According to CNBC’s Tucker Higgins, those residing in South Bend, Indiana’s poorest neighborhoods say Buttigieg has left them behind.

  64. Not legible for government benefits is he kidding? These people know instinctively that they already know where every state and federal welfare office is before they even cross the fence. Having a baby, government guarantee’s them hospital and care all at our expense. Housing, food stamps along with full medical no problem they get it and don’t have to work at all to use it. Yes these Democratic liberals just seem to be in La La land, we cannot receive the same benefits as American citizens but they expect to get it all when they cross that fence. Being gay isn’t a sign that you have your personal life in control much less the Mayor of a city. You more than likely are going to be toast before your even through with the primaries. Your running mates for that office are going to eat you alive.

  65. He is an idiot and uneducated I’m the area of politics.He needs to
    Go back to high school and take a course in CIVICS 101!’ NOW!!!

  66. The Problem is not that this idiot says crap like this, the problem is there are fools that believe crap like this.

  67. Pete you are wrong! If people want to come to this country great but do it the legal way. This Shit you liberals are doing will cost you as I am not going to pay taxes to give to illegals as I had to go thru the system where you needed enough money in the Bank to get you started and and a sponsor support and waited in line to get as I was married to a US CITIZEN THAT TOOK 4 MONTHS AND i COULD NOT COME HERE TILL ACCEPTED. If not controlled you dont have a country and the governing body will pay dearly.

  68. Pete is another village idiot all those college degrees mean nothing Another fact-checks is amarxist communist.

  69. It’s very apparent the man has not a clue of anything concerning illegals. How much more is he totally ignorant of. Don’t think he’s capable of being head of a city let alone a country.

  70. This is a lot of B.S. they collect more than citizens from the government in benefits. We have enough leaches of our own — we don’t need any more of central America’s freeloaders.

  71. don’t think this fag gets it the people don’t want an immoral or amoral President let alone an idiot that thinks illegal aliens are good for America.


  73. Very informative article. Thank you for stating the truth and bringing it to my attention. I happen to live in South Bend. I love it when true facts prove a politician is wrong in what he says. So tired of hearing mistruths. Thank you for your comments.

  74. he’s full of bullcrap-illegals bring debt to cities, crime to cities, use resources meant for citizens and their filthy disgusting lifestyles sour entire regions they occupy–

  75. You seem to have a bias against Mayor Pete because of his sexual orientation which has nothing to do with his political intelligence. The guy happens to be very bright and very knowledgable. I don’t believe in promoting illegal immigration but he is 100% correct when he states that the illegals help to support the government because they pay taxes and don’t get a lot of benefits. That is thinking outside the box that most politicians would never figure out.

  76. This fruitcake has lot his mind. To think that criminals are good for the legal American citizens cinches that he should not be running but perhaps locked up or committed for being a mentally deficient boob.

  77. Another nutcase…heee they just keep piling up..heeeeeeee. Welcome to the clown fair Biden…you will fit in well….all nut cases…..doctors beware !!!,

  78. his name says it all – Butt……. – what scares me isn’t these dopes with the stupid anti American thoughts it’s the nuts who vote for them

  79. Let’s face it — Buttigieg has had a lobotomy and no one told him. He is basically illiterate!
    If BS was music, this guy is a brass band!! What a total embarrassment he is to every hardworking
    tax paying, American citizen!
    Trump,2020. Our only hope!!🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸
