2.4 Million Migrants Crossed US Borders in 2023: What Benefits Do Illegal Immigrants Receive Amid Record-High Border Crossings?

Illegal immigrants entering the U.S. amid a surge in border crossings receive various forms of assistance from NGOs and local governments, funded by federal dollars, sparking debate over taxpayer burden and immigration policy.

Extensive Support Provided to Illegal Immigrants in the U.S. Raises Concerns and Highlights Government Spending

According to the article of Fox News, illegal immigrants coming into the U.S. during a big crisis can get lots of help from different places. In 2023, 2.4 million people crossed the border, and since 2021, 7.3 million have come in during President Biden‘s time. They often get a notice to go to court later because there are so many cases waiting. While they’re here, they can get support from groups and governments, mostly paid for by the federal government, like places to stay, medical care, and help with travel.

Some people think giving these benefits makes more people want to come to the U.S. and costs taxpayers a lot. At the border, agencies like CBP and ICE take care of detained migrants, providing things like food and medical help. NGOs help them get settled in the country, arranging places to stay and how to get around. The DHS gave $640.9 million in 2024 to help communities that are taking in migrants, covering things like hotels and travel costs.

Diverse Benefits Offered to Migrants Across U.S. Cities and States Amid Immigration Policy Debate

Furthermore, in different cities and states, what benefits migrants get can change. Places like New York and Denver have special programs for migrants, offering things like shelter and prepaid cards for buying food. California even gives health insurance to illegal immigrants of all ages. While the federal government usually says no to benefits for illegal immigrants, they can still get emergency help and food assistance. The Biden administration wants to make bigger changes, like giving a way for them to become citizens and get more benefits.
