800,000 Illegal Immigrants To Be Deported, Remain In U.S. With Benefits

Illegal immigration

Nearly 800,000 illegal immigrants who have been ordered deported still remain in the United States, and many of them, including convicted criminals, are getting access to “secure areas, education grants, and housing assistance” in addition to food stamps and driver’s licenses.

An audit of the verification and screening system states and the federal government use to prevent illegal immigrants from receiving benefits found it fails nearly 12% of the time.

“The failures in our sample include individuals who applied for unemployment and disability insurance, food stamps, driver’s licenses and other benefits,” the auditors said. “Several individuals had criminal records, including assault with a deadly weapon, extortion, drug convictions and other convictions such as burglary, stalking and child abuse.”

The Department of Homeland Security inspector general’s audit found that nearly “800,000 immigrants are living in the U.S. who already have been ordered deported but have not yet left — or been removed by the government — from the country.” And because the the Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements (SAVE) program, which “is supposed to maintain an up-to-date list of those deportable aliens so that other government agencies are aware of their status and know they should be denied benefits,” fails nearly 12% of the time, many of these 800,000 immigrants also are illegally receiving taxpayer-funded benefits.

  1. Really!! And they collect MY benefits that I’ve worked for? How do they get benefits with no I.D when I have to prove that I was born here, show proof of residency and my drivers license? Something wrong here. They’re the ones who are draining our system dry, Odumma’s aunt and uncle are a great example, they collect and never worked their also illegal. This has to end and fast. I work, am losing my Health Ins. at years end, and because I live in MA, I’ll be penalized for the months that I have no Ins, and they get benefits. And Obumma gets another four years to keep giving away America, thanks to those that voted for him, bet you all are the 49% Romney was talking about, boy was he right.

  2. send them all back so they can come back the right way. i can’t afford much of a Christmas this year but obama is in hawaii and i’m feeding, clothing, providing a phone and medicine to people that don’t belong here.WHY????????????????????????

    1. Yes Sue, how many of us could go on vacation for $4M? If Obama is so “in touch” with the common person, why isn’t he LIVING like one? A true leader leads by example. He flaunts his adaucity in our faces and his “followers” are blind to it. Ugggghhhh!

  3. This liar in chief is undoing in a few years..what it took over 200 to build. I hope this threat of impeachment goes thru with flying colors. I don’t like how I feel about this fraud. I’m not a person who despises easily…or at all. Until now.

    1. We need to insist to Congress in Jan they need to bring a special Investigator like they did with slick weenie Willy . Its time that this lying cold blooded murdering traitor faces his crimes. We know he won by fraud he knows he won by fraud. So if we cannot get him out on fraud we can get him impeached for lying cold blooded, murder with depraved indifference and treason and those being acts that are of the highest crimes death by electric chair or a needle . A MOM AGAINST OBAMA
