Yes there is: “Twenty-six states make immigrants eligible for state-funded benefit programs. Most of these states either offer assistance to families or provide access to healthcare to otherwise uninsured immigrants.”
“What is the protocol for “mixed-status families,” i.e., undocumented parents with citizen children?
Like any U.S.-born citizen, U.S. citizen children of undocumented parents can received federal benefits if they meet eligibility requirements without penalty. Similarly, the child’s eligibility does not change their parents’ or any other family members’ eligibility for that benefit.”
“Do undocumented children have access to a public education?
Yes. In accordance with the Supreme Court ruling in Plyer v. Doe, all immigrant children, regardless of status, have access to a public education and are eligible to attend public schools for grades K-12. Undocumented immigrants are also eligible for the Head Start program as it is not considered a federal public benefit program – any child who is otherwise eligible, regardless of their or their parents’ immigration status, may enroll in Head Start or Early Head Start.”
Pulled directly from the immigration website. Thou some of these programs may not be directly funded by federal dollars they are funded with tax payer dollars though school tax and state taxes.
What is even more disturbing is the number of programs and tax breaks that are provide to legal immigrants.
