I share your concern and your disappointment.
I have a friend, she got sick, almost lost an eye, back pain due to an accident, her husband is long gone, one kid, barely making it while working. She had a rich girlfriend, they used to work together and spoke about several issues, one is that she is very wealthy, driving a brand new Mercedes Benz every year. Flying back and forth to one Asian country, forget if China or Japan or Philippines. She owns 10s of houses over there, and about 5 over here, all under sibling's names.
Well, my fried went to apply for some benefits, and for $3.00 she earned too much for the benefits she applied for. What she almost died for is to see her friend there, in line, waiting for benefits, free housing.
You will see this, no matter the race or nationality, on every welfare, WIC, free food center. Most will say they don't have anywhere to live? Or, they are single with kids, the husband left, etc.
They lost their own dignity by peddling for something they can afford to buy but as you mentioned, they think this is cool, taking from others in need.
I am all pro immigration, but I abhor, I hate to see these people taking advantage of a magnanimous country. For that, I am all pro banning, terminating, finishing off the refugee program that rewards people for too long, making them masters in the art of deceiving the government. If you are welcome to this country, congratulations! But after one year, I think it's enough for you to learn how to survive. There you have Salinas, Santa Cruz and the central valley ready to take you in to work on the fields.
This would apply to all welfare and section 8 people too. I know some 60+ people working their behinds off to make a living whereas others are just sucking the milk of the public benefits.
