The pro-mass immigration Koch brothers say ending welfare-dependent immigration to the United States would do “serious harm” to the nation and be a “serious mistake.”

President Trump’s administration is looking to implement a policy that protects American taxpayers’ dollars from funding the mass importation of welfare-dependent foreign nationals by enforcing a “public charge” rule whereby legal immigrants would be less likely to secure a permanent residency in the U.S. if they have used any forms of welfare in the past, including using Obamacare, food stamps, and public housing.

Immigration - Controls - Boon - Taxpayers - Form

The immigration controls would be a boon for American taxpayers in the form of an annual $57.4 billion tax cut — the amount taxpayers spend every year on paying for the welfare, crime, and schooling costs of the country’s mass importation of 1.5 million new, mostly low-skilled legal immigrants.

The billionaire Kochs — avid defenders of mass immigration and free trade — are decrying the welfare-dependent immigration ban through their network of organizations.

Libre - Initiative - Koch-funded - Groups - Letter

The Libre Initiative, just one of many Koch-funded groups, wrote a letter to the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), claiming that such a policy would harm the nation’s economy and cripple businesses that rely on cheap, foreign labor:

Under current law and longstanding practice, immigrants to the United States should be able to provide for themselves, or—in times of need—rely on the legal sponsors who have committed to support them. We welcome the opportunity to work with anyone to improve how these policies are administered. It would be a serious mistake however, to revise the public charge rule in such a way that its effect is to deprive our nation of the very talented and hard-working people we seek to welcome and who history shows contribute so much to our success.
