My wife and her family are awesome people and they didn't deserve that Hell. Anyway that was a few years back and things are much better now. The system fails these people and it really pisses me off. This is poli-sci so I can get political here. We as a country give and give and give. Not just to illegal immigrants but to people throughout the world yet we do not help our own citizens. I can't put into words how terrible and dumb that is. Mind boggling.
The US gives to others but there's a lot of politics involved. I think a lot of it is cost. You can give a donation to some place and house some refugees for a while. It is a one time expense and looks good in the news. Providing care for thousands or millions of US citizens full time? That's a huge on going expense and no one wants to write that check.

In the type of spending this is, it is definitely a social benefit that conservative "small government" advocates will not want to pay for.
