Roughly 3/4 of CA Immigrants on Welfare

This is an addendum to the Most Not An Asset story we posted on Monday. Today Breitbart is reporting further analysis of the Census Bureau numbers on welfare use by immigrants.
The latest Census Bureau data analyzed by the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) finds that about 72 percent of households headed by noncitizens and immigrants use one or more forms of taxpayer-funded welfare programs in California — the number one immigrant-receiving state in the U.S.

Meanwhile, only about 35 percent of households headed by native-born Americans use welfare in California.

All four states with the largest foreign-born populations, including California, have extremely high use of welfare by immigrant households.
Nearly three-quarters of immigrant households in CA receive means-tested government support. How is this a good deal for Californians? Clearly, it is nothing of the sort.
