Something that the public needs to know?

Caitlin Dewey of the Washington Post would like for you to know that she’s super sad that “Immigrants are going hungry so Trump won’t deport them.”
No, that’s not the title of a satirical article published on The Onion, Caitlin actually published a note describing her complete devastation when she discovered that, under a Trump administration, illegal aliens may unilaterally choose to stop breaking numerous federal laws, including multiple counts of identity theft as that’s the only conceivable way an illegal immigrant could get food stamps in the first place, in order to avoid being punished for other federal laws they’ve already broken.
Perhaps Caitlin doesn’t quite understand how entitlement programs work? You see, Caitlin, despite what you may have been told by Nancy Pelosi or Bernie Sanders, entitlement programs in the U.S. are not funded by the ‘entitlement fiary’. No, in reality, taxpaying citizens (key word there), pay into those programs so that they’ll have a safety net to fall back on to the extent they fall on economic hard times. So, hopefully that helps clarify why it might be problematic for people who don’t pay taxes in the U.S. to create falsified identities to collect benefits reserved for people who actually paid for them.
Of course, Caitlin, like the majority of the so-called ‘progressives’ in America, does understand exactly how entitlement programs work but simply feels that American taxpayers somehow have a duty to share their monthly paychecks with the folks who choose to immigrate to this country illegally. But where does that “spread the wealth around” logic end? By Caitlin’s logic, why should Americans only be required to provide financial assistance to those who have broken the law to get here…should they not have to provide similar financial support to anyone around the globe with similar needs? Perhaps Caitlin is just being ‘heartless’ by focusing on domestic illegal aliens while ignoring the rest of the world.
