    Being an immigrant is rough. English might not be your native language, you might not get all the same breaks, your education from a previous country might not necessarily be recognized. You are competing for jobs against well rooted citizens.

    What is the point of this thread anyway? Seems kind of xenophobic.

    Is there a word like "parasitophilia"? Oh yeah, it used to be "liberal" but they had to change that to "progressive".

    Grossly misleading.
    First, the article is talking about people who ever got any gov't assistence. Not people currently on welfare. Second, you cannot compare immigrants to native born people. You have to compare like socio economic groups. My guess is immigrants use gov't assistance less than native born people of comparable status.

    If they become a citizen why shouldn't they get the same rights as the rest of us? What, you want immigrants who newly acquire citizenship to NOT be allowed to get financial assistance?
