Don't Use Social Services?

Source: stltoday

A primary talking point of the insane open borders folks is that our "cheerful invaders" aren't a burden to social services. In fact, Emma Lozano assured me that no illegal aliens use social services, ahem, when I was done laughing I should have pointed her to this article...
Immigrants flock to St. Joe, Mo.

ST. JOSEPH, Mo. (AP) -- Social services in the St. Joseph area are struggling to meet a burgeoning demand caused by the influx of workers coming to the Triumph Foods plant here. The pork-processing plant opened in January. It employs more than 2,200 people, about 50 percent of whom are Hispanic. Immigrants from other countries also have come to St. Joseph to work at the plant. The Immigration Outreach Center, a partnership between Catholic Charities and InterServ, opened in November to help integrate the immigrants. And the St. Joseph Public School District saw enrollment in its English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) classes increase from 90 early last year to 270 currently. Lilia White, the immigrant services coordinator for InterServ, said her organization is helping not just Hispanics. "There is a community of about 200 from Sudan and we are receiving calls from them," White said. "There are also several from Germany, England, South America. There are immigrants from many different countries here."
Fascinating how on the one hand we're told our "cheerful invaders" aren't ever a burden to social services until they swarm and infest an area and then presto, they are gobbling up (read: stealing) resources that are, by their very nature, intended for citizens.

Don't worry though Emma Lozano told me it's all good!
