    Exclamation Refugee Children Receive More Benefits Than American Children


    If a country’s future depends on the state of its youngest generation, some may find the priorities of the United States are misdirected.

    With the massive influx of refugees coming to the U.S., comes a high number of dependent refugee children. In an effort to provide for these children, the United States government is supplying money, food stamps and Social Security benefits.

    Paul Bedard of the Washington Examiner noted a strange finding from a recent Migration Policy Institution report. In the report he found children of refugees are the recipients of more government funds than the children of U.S. citizens.

    Between the years of 2009 and 2013, 30 percent of refugee children live in homes which receive food stamps, compared to only 20 percent of American children.

    The report also found 8 percent of refugee households receive welfare cash, as opposed to 6 percent of U.S. household. Additionally, the number of refugee children participating in Social Security’s Supplemental Security Income program stands at 5 percent compared to only 4 percent of U.S. children.

    MPI reports children of immigrants currently represent the fastest growing segment of the population of U.S. children, at 24 percent. The report goes on to say immigrant children are found at the lower end of the socioeconomic spectrum.

    Many refugees came to Europe and the United States in an attempt to escape persecution and violence in their homeland, arriving with little understanding of the language or culture as well as very limited resources.

    The United States may receive as many as 20,000 refugees from Syria by the end of 2016.
