Powerful Essays
America, the land of the free and “white picket” fences may seem like it is a fair and perfect society on the outside, but as a person digs deeper they start to discover things that they did not know before and it changes their perspective for the red, white and blue forever.

Most Immigrants are just dead weight when it comes to them contributing to society. Alan Gomez is a writer who works for USA today and he states in his article “More than half of immigrants on welfare” “About 51% of immigrant-led households receive at least one kind of welfare benefit, including Medicaid, food stamps, school lunches and housing assistance, compared with 30% for native-led households, according to the Center for Immigration Studies, a group that advocates for lower levels of immigration” (Gomez).
