Majority of illegal immigrants in US receiving taxpayer-funded government benefits
Central American migrants are arriving by the thousands without a penny to their name. How do they get by? William La Jeunesse breaks down the cost.
This week, the U.S. Supreme Court considers whether to count self-identified illegal immigrants in the 2020 census. Cities worry adding the citizenship question could undercount 6.5 million people.
