Illegal immigrants survive off the goverment. They rarely pay taxes and use loopholes and fake ids to obtain welfare. Trust me ive seen it
. If the goverment overhauled the welfare system and made sure only legal people earned these benefits the welfare system would have plenty of funding as opposed to be low on funds.
If illegal immigrants followed the rules within america I wouldnt have as much of a problem with it. There are a handful that mean well and follow the rules. But the majority of illegal immigrants go on to abuse the USA.
