    Venezuelan Requests for Asylum in the U.S. Skyrocket 168 Percent

    by CAROLINE MAY

    The crisis in Venezuela is having immigration consequences in the United States, as thousands flee the economic crisis in their home country to seek more stable environments elsewhere.

    According to the Pew Research Center asylum applications filed by Venezuelans have skyrocketed 168 percent so far this fiscal year compared with the same time-frame last fiscal year.

    From October 2015 to June 2016, Venezuelans filed 10,221 applications for asylum. By comparison, over that same period last fiscal year — October 2014 to June 2015 — just 3,810 Venezuelans filed applications for asylum in the U.S. As Pew highlights, Venezuelan asylum requests are topped now only by applicants from China and Mexico each of which have 11,826 and 10,749 applications, respectively.

    Pew estimates there are currently 225,000 Venezuelan immigrants in the U.S., between 25 percent to 30 percent of whom are in the country illegally. As Pew notes, Venezuela was among the top ten leading countries for visa overstays in FY 2015, according to a Department of Homeland Security report released earlier this year.

    While Venezuelans are seeking less volatile countries for refuge, the U.S is the top country of choice for Venezuelan immigrants. According to Fox News Latino, Andres Bello University found that more than one in four Venezuelans between the ages of 15 to 29 are considering leaving Venezuela, 29 percent of whom plan to go to the U.S., 18 percent plan to go to Spain and nine percent are going to Columbia.

    Currently the U.S. is home to the most Venezuelan immigrants, followed by Spain, which has 150,000 Venezuelan immigrants. According to Pew, 59 percent of the 225,000 Venezuelans living in the U.S. have lived in the U.S. for over a decade and about half of them reside in Florida.

    O will take the communists in and make us pay for them. First of all, venezuela is an enemy, 2nd it is part of south america - can't one of their countries assist them since their communist leaders are screw ups?

    A native of venezuela is sitting there saying "I will go to USA". really! An American citizen cannot relocate to a south american country w/o a specific amount of guaranteed income, not to be made there, but brought with you.

    The word is out all over the place, USA has no borders, is a welfare paying country and is wide open to poor foreigners. ryan will fight to bring them in too guaranteed.

    O is just lovin' this - go beyond north american union into the pan american union. His dark globalists, wealth redistribution soul is aflame. How can Americans stand for this? How do our politicians sleep at night knowing that they are destroying our USA?

    Why here? They act as if there is no where else in the world to go. We are the people that have allowed our representatives in Washington to fleece us as taxpayers and to give it to foreigners. Close the door, give us a breather. This is ridiculous. IMO

    Most Illegal Immigrant Families Collect Welfare

    APRIL 05, 2011

    Surprise, surprise; Census Bureau data reveals that most U.S. families headed by illegal immigrants use taxpayer-funded welfare programs on behalf of their American-born anchor babies.Even before the recession, immigrant households with children used welfare programs at consistently higher rates than natives, according to the extensive census data collected and analyzed by a nonpartisanWashington D.C. group dedicated to researching legal and illegal immigration in the U.S. The results, published this month in a lengthy report, are hardly surprising.Basically, the majority of households across the country benefitting from publicly-funded welfare programs are headed by immigrants, both legal and illegal. States where immigrant households with children have the highest welfare use rates are Arizona (62%), Texas, California and New York with 61% each and Pennsylvania(59%).The study focused on eight major welfare programs that cost the government $517 billion the year they were examined. They include Supplemental Security Income (SSI) for the disabled, Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF), a nutritional program known as Women, Infants and Children (WIC), food stamps, free/reduced school lunch, public housing and health insurance for the poor (Medicaid).Food assistance and Medicaid are the programs most commonly used by illegal immigrants, mainly on behalf of their American-born children who get automatic citizenship. On the other hand, legal immigrant households take advantage of every available welfare program, according to the study, which attributes it to low education level and resulting low income.The highest rate of welfare recipients come from the Dominican Republic (82 %), Mexico and Guatemala (75%) and Ecuador (70%), according to the report, which says welfare use tends to be high for both new arrivals and established residents.
