I have revised the EBT card pie chart in Virginia on the basis of better information.
In Virginia, 37 percent of illegal aliens and 14 percent of legal immigrants were on EBT Cards in 2009. There were 210,000 illegal aliens in Virginia at that time.
In 2009, there were 805,742 foreign born whom roughly 595,742 were legal if we subtract the illegal aliens. Of the total foreign foreign born, 35.7 percent were Hispanic and 41.4 percent are Asian.
As the gallery can see, African-Americans, illegal aliens, and legal immigrants are over 75 percent of EBT card users in Virginia.
I’m also unhappy to report that my Medicaid numbers were inaccurate. The lack of a drastic overrepresentation prompted me to take a second look and I found out that I was look at the Medicare numbers.
I’m working on a revised chart that breakdown Medicaid use in Virginia by race and immigration status in 2009. I already have the numbers for non-elderly Medicaid. I should have the information that I need sometime early this morning.
In the meantime, it is “racist” to tell the “hate truth” about EBT cards.
