People are trying to conflate illegal immigration to crime, and by extension, mass shootings.
"Illegal" immigrants and refugees are completely different from each other. "Illegal" immigrants and refugees are completely different from each other. Refugees come here legally and are vetted before gaining access and are tracked for their time here as they're only supposed to stay for 5 years and need to reapply to stay. They also can only receive government assistance for a specific period of time... 5 years for cash & 7 years for medical, and that's it. To my knowledge, this isn't new and decades old.
Illegals just sneak across the lines unverified and tend to somehow get welfare and stay on for decades. My brother is a police office and my sister-in-law works for social services. Illegals don't either commit violent crimes or are perfect citizens. I've heard many stories where the illegals are beating their wife or kids. They're on welfare for many years, live in "low income housing", yet have Smart TV's, or 60" HDTV's in multiple rooms of the house. They have iPhones. They have multiple computes/laptops and gaming systems. Yet they need food stamps (EBT now), and medicade. They need government housing. Why? They have a lifestyle of people who make $40k+ per year... but somehow still qualify for government assistance? Also, these people get busted for DUI/DWI and obviously never show up. They cost towns a LOT of money.
Refugees and "Illegal" immigrants are two entirely different groups of people.
