Tens of Thousands of Cubans flood across border for immediate CASH benefits from US
A welcome wagon operation is greeting thousands of cubans trying to rush the U.S. border recently, in record numbers. They are being greeted with taxpayer-funded benefits including cash, a social security card, food stamps and Medicaid. This is all according to a review given on the latest immigration crisis we have at our borders. Are you ticked off yet?
From the Washington Examiner:
During a field trip to the Laredo, Texas crossing point, two experts from the Center for Immigration Studies documented how Cubans are provided with the services free of charge in a storefront operation set up by a Cuban immigrant, who even provides housing and schedules transportation to Miami.
“The door is wide open. Come and get your free stuff,” is how Jessica M. Vaughan, director of policy studies for the Center for Immigration Studies, sized it up.
She highlighted the help Cubans received immediately after crossing the border in Laredo. “As the islanders leave the port of entry at Bridge 1 they are greeted by a banner immediately across the street, which reads ‘Welcome Cubans To The Land of Liberty and Opportunity.’ The welcoming banner hangs from the offices of the non-profit organization Cubanos en Libertad (Cubans in Liberty),” she wrote.
The office is manned by a Cuban immigrant, Alejandro Ruiz, who shows the border-crossers what America has to offer. They said that he is likely subsidized by taxpayers through a refugee resettlement provider.
“Ruiz explained that he takes Cuban migrants to the Health and Human Services offices to get access to TANF (cash welfare), SNAP (food stamps), and Medicaid. During our visit he also showed us two envelopes with Social Security cards ready to be picked up by newly arrived islanders. Additionally, Ruiz gave us a checklist that he gives the migrants, which notes all the documents they need to have in order to acquire a work permit. While the Cubans wait for all their benefits to be in order, Ruiz provides them a place to stay,” wrote Luna.
