I hope you're having a good Saturday.
Earlier this week, the committee on which I serve, the House Financial Services Committee, held a hearing on how to address homelessness in America.
This is an important topic, and we must continue to have an active conversation to find solutions.
We should prioritize helping American citizens who truly need it. That's an idea that we should all be able to agree with. Unfortunately, there are many policymakers in the United States who prioritize massive programs for illegal immigrants over the needs of American citizens.
For example, in 2015 to 2016, Los Angeles County, California (just one county!) spent $1.3 BILLION on welfare payouts to illegal immigrants (source HERE).
If we have American citizens (many of whom are veterans) facing homelessness, why on earth should we spend a dime on things like welfare and legal aid for illegal immigrants instead of helping get our fellow Americans back on their feet?
Let's put Americans first. Click HERE or the image below to view a short video about this very point.
