i'm talking about families with lots of kids, and pregnant moms who's husbands work under the table and they still get PA too...legitimitely moving here with a legal job lined up and a way to support your family without PA is different, and does not apply to the question.

This. If they want to move here, it should be to become productive members of society, not use our government. Americans who receive pa at least usually pay into it as well at some point in their lives.

They don't. Only US citizens qualify for welfare.
