If you are a hard-working American, this story will piss you off. Many in the US are fed up with folks getting entitlements and special treatment. And now some to find out, Cuban immigrants get special treatment over other immigrants. While those from other countries are sometimes deported, Cubans get to stay in the US.
BeforeItsNews reported on other special favors Cuban exiles get when they come to the United States:
“Thousands of Cubans rushing the U.S. border in record numbers are being greeted with a Welcome Wagon operation the provides them with taxpayer-funded benefits including cash, a Social Security card, food stamps, and Medicaid, according to a review of the latest immigration crisis on the border.
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.”
It’s one thing to have compassion to those in need, but it’s another thing entirely to burden taxpayers who are already saddled down with so many crippling entitlements. When my family came to this country, they were given nothing. It was their responsibility to make their own opportunities. Freedom was the only handout and they were grateful for that.
This election cycle is highlighting the anger many Americans have over being given the tab for an entitled society. How much longer will this continue?
Do you think immigrants should immediately get entitlements, including Medicaid? Please share your thoughts.
