Immigrants drain the public benefits system, etc.
What doesn't your chart cover? 1) How various nationalities take advantage of it and their differences. That's the point Trump is making.
2) that the country already has over $100 trillion in unfunded liabilities, so we should be even stricter
and 3) we already have a huge problem of too many people being dependent on various forms of welfare, so the comparison is pretty close to irrelevant.
Trump and Repubs are going to reform Welfare, so the last thing we need is more immigrants receiving it.
Never mind that the federal government makes it almost impossible to get a truly accurate picture.
That has more to do with poverty than with morality.
True, it's about protecting the country from the corrupt, self serving, destructive policies of the Democrat Party, who rely on immigration as native-born Americans increasingly reject their malgovernance.
