For years, hard-working Americans have been struggling through job loss and a downtrodden economy. Adding to their worry, were the unnecessarily high tax burdens they faced resulting from increasing illegal immigration. Unfortunately, many of the illegals come to America for a better life and wind up depending on the country’s citizens to pay for it.
Thankfully, it looks like relief is on the way. The Washington Post reported that food stamp use is down, due in large part to President Trump’s tough immigration orders. The story itself focused on the plight of illegals who are allegedly “going hungry” out of fear of deportation.

“I don’t think it’s proper to increase the burden on U.S. taxpayers for people whose only claim to them is that they broke our law.”
