Paul Bedard writes in the Washington Examiner Monday that, according to 2014 Census Bureau data, 63 percent of non-citizens are using a welfare program, and that number increases to 70 percent for those here 10 years or more.

Bedard writes:

The numbers are huge. The report said that there are 4,684,784 million non-citizen households receiving welfare.

And nearly all, 4,370,385, have at least one worker in the house.

In their report, Steven A. Camarota, the director of research, and Karen Zeigler, a demographer at the Center, said that in census data, about half of those are in the United States illegally.

Is anyone shocked or surprised yet?
