growing up in the Viet community during the 2nd wave of Viet immigrants in the 80s-90s there were numerous stories of newcommers taking advantage of the system. with the 2nd generation not so much but theres still some cheating. is there cheating in the welfare system? definitely. does the welfare system need reforming? absolutely. but lets call this bill for what it is a move by the republicans to keep the focus/blame on the poor and the weak(minorities) - because they know it wont pass the Senate or the POTUS. some the attempts by conservative states in the last few years: anti-immigrant bills, no Obamacare, voter ID, closing low cost clinics, no same-sex marriage, anti-unions, etc.
