I don't think we are talking about the same thing in your first paragraph, so I will just ignore it.
Its naive to argue they don't get benefits. Otherwise many would just live in the street completely destitute. They are getting assistance. I can even find my local news, which is left leaning pointing this out. I am not arguing they get the exact same resources citizens get, but there is welfare given to them as well. https://www.azfamily.com/news/politics/arizona_politics/some-migrants-to-be-housed-in-phoenix-area-hotels-ice-confirms/article_0851a816-98b2-11eb-a24b-939a69f16722.html
Again, bitching about the GOP doesn't change the fact the open border policy is destructive and creating many problems. Border related crimes also way up, including violence.
Your comment on undocumented workers and jobs coming back, not relevant.
Really, did you read that article. That is not welfare, that is containment before court date to either send them back over the boarder no different from any thing else. If this is the best you could find I believe you should drop this point. You are trying to tell me illegal immigrants can get welfare and I am telling you from first hand experience that they cannot. Some how you are trying to convince yourself that they can secretly get welfare but you cannot find one policy within the welfare system that support benefits to undocumented people. Somehow the government on state, local and federal is secretly giving benefits to undocumented people.
The naïve part is you talking about a subject you really have no clue on. Why would undocumented people be on the street when we just had a discussion that they actually work. They work way harder and longer than you probably have ever worked in your life. Usually 2 to 3 jobs to support their family here and abroad. Its the reason they are not on the street because they have a mission unlike the average American who has a safety net.
So basically you just ignored what the GOP is doing when they literally canceled the merit based plan you proposed and instead call me bitching because they offered really nothing of value but the same policy that has not worked. Now that is what I can blind. You do not know what an open boarder policy is because we never had one. Show me this stat where border related crime is way up. Way up over what and who are the perpetrators.
