62% of Illegal Immigrant Households on Welfare | Steven Camarota and Stefan Molyneux

According to a recent study by the Center for Immigration Studies, 62% of households headed by a illegal immigrant participated in at least one welfare program in 2012, compared to 49% of legal immigrant-headed households and 30% of native-headed households. Stefan Molyneux speaks with Dr. Steven Camarota to clarify what this data means and to debunk the common myths and non-arguments concerning illegal and legal immigrant welfare usage in the United States.
Dr. Steven Camarota serves as the Director of Research for the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS), a Washington, DC based research institute that examines the consequences of legal and illegal immigration on the United States.
In recent years Dr. Camarota has testified before Congress more than any other non-government expert on the economic and fiscal impact of immigration. In addition, he was the lead researcher on a contract with the Census Bureau examining the quality of immigrant data in the American Community Survey.
