Social welfare and Latino

Grant, Christopher John; Smith, Raymond Arthur

A large portion of the Latino population in the United States continues to depend of social welfare more than any other race. In particular, Latino immigration in the United States has had a profound effect on this social welfare distribution. This high distribution rate for Latino immigrants can be seen in regions such as South Florida and Southern California, where a vast number of Mexicans, Cubans, etc. continue to rely on social welfare. As a government program that was implemented to protect individuals from dropping below a particular standard of living, social welfare has become a dependable rebound for both documented and undocumented immigrants. How does this affect the United States social welfare, and how does it affect citizens’ ability to receive such aid?
